The NCAA made it official today, announcing that RIT will host the Division III Men’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four next Friday and Saturday at the Ritter Memorial Arena on the RIT campus.
RIT, 26-0-1 on the season and the No. 1-ranked team in the nation, earned the right to host after an 8-1, 10-2 sweep of Lebanon Valley in the NCAA Quarterfinals.
RIT will square off with Wisconsin-River Falls (23-8-2) in one semifinal, while Plattsburgh State (27-5) and Wisconsin-Superior (29-3-1) will match up in the other semifinal.
RIT has hosted the national championship game twice before, in 1984 and 1989.
Ticket information will be available late Monday afternoon. Information on how to purchase tickets can be obtained by calling 475-6180, or on the RIT Athletics Website.
