Alpena Wildcat hockey team continues ongoing service to community

The Michigan high school hockey season ended two weeks ago and the Alpena Wildcat varsity hockey team celebrated a successful regional championship season.

Despite the year being over, the Wildcat hockey players are still handing out helpers.

On Monday, members of the Alpena hockey team once again, spent time giving back to their community.

In partnership with Doug Field and the team at Vulcan Systems of Oscoda, members of the Alpena High hockey team earned the Vulcan Systems Player of the Game awarded each contest during True North Radio Network live broadcasts on 107.7 The Bay, chosen by the Wildcat hockey broadcast team of Doc Z and the Skating Dutchman.

Vulcan Systems also extended its Player of the Game honors during the Hillman boys and girls playoff basketball games this past year as broadcasted on 107.7 The Bay with honors being awarded by Doc Z and JT Pepper.

These player of the game honorees made their biggest play of their respective season by giving back and presenting a $500 check to the Boys and Girls Club of Alpena, along with $300 worth of gift certificates to JJ’s Steak and Pizza House of Alpena.

This is the second consecutive year that Vulcan Systems Player of the Game members have donated their time with Boys and Girls Club of Alpena members and third time an Alpena varsity team has presented a check.

The Alpena varsity hockey and football teams have combined to donate $1,800 in the past two years to the Boys and Girls Club of Alpena in their ongoing partnership with the Vulcan Systems’ Player of the Game award.

Along with donating checks and gift certificates, the Alpena Wildcat student-athletes have donated their time, being role models for club members in hopes of accomplishing the mission of the True North Radio Network Vulcan Systems Player of the Game donation which is building a better tomorrow for future winners.
