RIT

Congratulations to RIT for another exciting NCAA Tournament run. Tied at 1-1 with just over five left on the clock, the Tigers played giant-slayer as they took the lead and downed overall No. 1 seed Minnesota State with a contested goal by Josh Mitchell. The dramatic win echoed RIT’s only other appearance at the Dance in 2010 when they slipped by No.1 seed Denver en route to winning the east regional and earning a Frozen Four appearance. Although captain Matt Garbowsky, a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, will be donning an Amerks sweater next year there’s still a lot to look forward to for the second year at the Gene Polisseni Center.
