“Our athletic community is really tight, that’s helpful,” said H.T. Lenz, sophomore forward for the men’s hockey team. “We take classes together, and are always there to help each other, no matter what sport.”
The athletics department does its best to make sure students always have the support they need and make sure that they can get help with anything they need, Gervais said. The department has also used the success to build towards the future.
“We use the seven straight cups in our recruitment now,” Corran said. “Parents and students view it well; it’s a great way to show our institutional commitment to success, not only on the field, but in the classroom.”
For most of the student athletes here, this is the peak of their athletic careers, so we try and stress the value of an education, Gervais said.
“I’m going to need my degree,” Lenz said. “UVM is a great place to learn.”
