ACHA: Pitt Men Clinch CHMA, Women Fall to Mercyhurst


This weekend, I had the privilege of covering the second edition this season of the City Game on Ice between Pitt and Duquesne. Pitt had clinched the CHMA championship the night before by defeating IUP (who took the #6 seed in the CHMA tournament with Duquesne's loss to Pitt on Saturday).

Then on Sunday, I got to expand my coverage to include the newly formed ACHA Pitt Women's Hockey D2 team. In their second season, they are currently ranked 7th in the country (the top 6 getting into the national ACHA tournament) and they held a charity game for late Pitt student and team friend, Alina Sheykhet, who lost her life last fall in a domestic violence incident in her home in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
