The History

The first competitive hockey match played in the United States was a contest between Hopkins and Yale in Baltimore on Feb. 1, 1896. It was a hard fought duel that ended in a 2-2 tie. The university's 1895-96 team was a mix of 11 dedicated graduate students and undergrads, representing all university divisions, a common practice back then. The university was small, and since graduate students outnumbered the undergrads 3 to 1, this university-wide camaraderie was born out of necessity.

Over 100 years later, the current club continues to skate competitively with an even balance of graduate and undergraduate students. The club joined the DVCHC as a probationary member in the 2014-2015 season prior to becoming a full member for the 2015-16 season in which it won the championships for the American South and Central divisions.
