"The Renegades enter the 2012-13 season with high hopes "
The New Mexico Renegades of the Western States Hockey League are excited to announce they will be heading north, Thursday, Sept. 27, for a day to practice and scrimmage at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center in Santa Fe. The Renegades will hit the ice at 6 p.m.
The Renegades are entering their fourth season in New Mexico, playing out of Blades Multiplex Arenas in Rio Rancho. The Renegades were originally founded in North Richland Hills, TX, prior to their move to New Mexico before the start of the 2009-10 season.
Santa Fe is no stranger to Junior A hockey. The Santa Fe RoadRunners were a member of the North American Hockey League from 2004-2007 before the team was moved to Topeka, Kansas. Much like the Renegades, the Santa Fe RoadRunners got their start in North Richland Hills, TX, originally named the Lone Star Cavalry.
The Renegades enter the 2012-13 season with high hopes following their first trip to the playoffs in 2011-12 and the hiring of co-head coaches Cliff Cook and John McCreary, ironically enough both coached with the Texas Brahmas in the WSHL based out of that same rink in Texas where the Renegades and RoadRunners began their existence.
Admission to the Renegades practice and inter-squad scrimmage is $2.00 and following Thursday’s on-ice session, fans will get a chance to meet the 2012-13 New Mexico Renegades! For more information about the Renegades, it’s history, players and schedule, log on to www.nmrenegades.com.
