Kevin Reich '14 Tracks the Camels in Their Summer Internships & Experiences
The Connecticut College Men's Ice Hockey team was hard at work this summer. In order to prepare for the 2011-2012 campaign, the Camels are currently working through phase five of their rigorous strength and conditioning program. In addition to improving their conditioning and on ice skills, the Camels are utilizing the summer months to advance in their respective career paths.
