Centennial High School Represents Tennessee at the 2013 Toyota-USA Hockey National Championships

The Centennial High School Cougars will play for the 2013 Toyota-USA Hockey National Championships this week in Coral Springs, Fla. In all, 41 champions will be crowned at the youth, girls, sled, high school, junior, adult and women levels in 11 cities across the U.S. in the coming weeks.

Centennial, the only team from Tennessee in the tournament, posted a 17-3-1 record during the regular season en route to winning the Greater Nashville Area Scholastic Hockey League (G.N.A.S.H.) regular-season title, becoming the first school to be crowned G.N.A.S.H. Champions four times. The Cougars fell to Ravenwood in the Preds Cup semi-finals earlier this month. Centennial will begin the tournament tonight against Omaha Jr. Lancers.
