NKY NORSEMEN HOCKEY TEAM
The Northern Kentucky Norsemen hockey team won the Kentucky state championship in Louisville.
The Norsemen are made up of hockey players in high school across Northern Kentucky. The Norsemen are led by head coach Eric Kathman. This is the team’s third state title in the last seven years, winning in 2017 and ’19 as well.
The Norsemen will play next in Plymouth, Minnesota for the National high school tournament, March 23-27.
The team had the community come out to celebrate the teams success at the Northern Kentucky Ice Center in Crescent Springs.
Kathman has been coaching hockey for over 25 years and knows the excitement that exists around this hockey community in northern Kentucky but also feels the love from those who are part of the Norse family.
