Hockey Team Visits State House
April 30, 1998
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.-The 1997-98 Boston College hockey team, coming off a season in which it won the HOCKEY EAST Tournament title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament's championship game, visited Beacon Hill and took a tour of the Massachusetts State House on Thursday afternoon, April 30.
The visit was arranged through Bob Haley, president of the Pike's Peak Club (BC hockey support group) and brother of Rep. Paul R. Haley, chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee.
The team, led by head coach Jerry York and junior captain Marty Reasoner, were hosted by Rep. Haley. Haley presented York with a proclamation from the House of Representatives, congratulating the coach and his team on their successful season.
The Eagles then visited with Gov. A. Paul Cellucci, a "double Eagle". Cellucci received his undergraduate degree from Boston College in 1970 and his law degree in 1973.
After having lunch with Rep. Haley, the team was recognized on the floor of the House of Representatives. Sen. Warren E. Tolman then escorted the Eagles to the Senate Chamber, where Coach York and the players were again honored.
