    On The Fly: Hearty Hartford Welcome For Trinity Hockey Champs
    A vocal throng of fans greeted the NCAA Division III champion Trinity College hockey team at Koeppel Community Sports Center in Hartford Sunday afternoon. Fans held signs and wore Trinity blue and gold to honor their Bantams, who defeated Wisconsin-Stevens Point 5-2 Saturday night in Minneapolis for their first NCAA hockey title. "I am proud as the head coach of this program, and as a Trinity College alum," coach Matt Greason said. "This all started with the guys that were here before me: coach [John] Dunham and coach [Dave] Catarazulo. I feel honored and so lucky to be here. It's an amazing feeling to do this at a place I care so much about." What Trinity accomplished was reminiscent of its baseball team's winning its first NCAA Division III title in 2008 in Grand Chute, Wis. From Ethan Holdaway's goal Saturday night that broke a 2-2 tie, to the stellar play of goalie Nathaniel Heilbron, to the performance of the entire team and coach Matt Greason and his staff, it was all grand for Trinity.
