Stars, fans to honor Trojans Saturday night

Fans will get a chance to honor the state champion Traverse City Central Trojans hockey team on Saturday at the Traverse City North Stars home game against the Team USA Under-18 squad.

The Trojans, who knocked off Saline by a 2-1 count on March 11 at Plymouth’s Compuware Sports Arena, claimed the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 2 state championship crown – the first in the history of Traverse City high school hockey.

“This is a great thing for the Trojans, for the North Stars – for the entire community,” said North Stars owner/president Steve Fournier. “We’re honored to have them join us on Friday, and can’t wait for the hockey fans of Traverse City to get to offer their congratulations and to let these guys know how proud we all are of them. They get to keep the (state championship) trophy, but their success is shared by everyone who lives, works, and plays here.”

The North Stars and Team USA are scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. face-off at Centre ICE arena.
