West Haven Pee Wee B Hockey Team takes the icy plunge

WEST HAVEN - The West Haven Icy Plunge for the Cure recently brought more than 230 people into the rightfully not quite frozen but truly freezing waters of Long Island Sound.
The event raised $42,000 in support of breast cancer research, organizers said.
Among those taking part in this year’s mid-winter swim were 17 young hockey players from the West Haven Youth Hockey Pee Wee B Travel Team, team officials said in a statement.
The catalyst behind this brave group of 11- and 12 year-olds was Hunter Cole.
For several years Hunter has asked his parents Bill and Jennifer, both long-time supporters of the event, if he could take the plunge; this year they finally relented and he received their permission, the statement said.
Hunter’s next step was to get as many of his hockey buddies as he could to join him.
So after one early season practice he approached his teammates about taking the plunge with him.
He didn’t have to ask twice; the team, players and coaches alike, responded with unanimous enthusiasm and immediately began their fundraising efforts, the statement said.
A tightly knit group of friends off the ice, the team is having a very successful year on the ice, the statement said.
Team members are: Michael Annunziata, Joe Bepko, John Brunetti, Hunter Cole, Wyatt Condon, Kevin Coyle, Chris Durost, Justin Edwards, Donny Froehlich, Brian Kelly, Matt Kennedy, Dean Luedee, Jake Lynch, Jerry Maus, Kalan Morgillo, Tyler Paine, and Chris Woolsey. The coaches are Dave Coyle and Eric Wagner.
