The Tigers Face Off on Ice


Wrapping up the season in second place, the Fremont Tiger hockey team finished one point behind Kearny’s Tri-City Storm. With a record of 20-2-2 at the end of the season, the Tigers are off to state.
Seniors, captain Jax Sorensen and assistant captain Ty Hallberg are a force to be reckoned with this season. Sorensen and Hallberg currently lead the division each scoring 60 goals of the Tigers 135, scoring more goals than any other individual in the division.
Sorensen has played all four years with the Fremont Tigers.
“I’ve been playing since I was 7 years old,” Sorensen said. “I started because of my brother [Spencer Sorensen].”
The Tigers may have the most goals of the division with 135 and 42 division points, but they finished in second behind Tri-City Storm with 43 division points.
Junior defensemen Carter Franzen believes that this is “the best season in Tiger history.”
Although the Tigers may seem all serious when it comes to the sport, they do have some interesting traditions as a team.
“We listen to ‘Love Sosa’ and ‘Click Click Boom’ start to finish before each game,” Franzen said. “‘Fergalicious’ is a go-to after every win.”
Franzen and sophomore Beau Shanahan have their own traditions.
“I tape my stick with red-tape, because I look cool with it,” Franzen said. “While Beau puts his skates on before his breezers.”
Fremont faced the Westside Warriors to kick off their appearance at state this year.
The Tigers trailed behind the Warriors for the first two periods of the game, keeping Tigers fans at the edge of their seats.
In the third quarter when down 0-2, Jacob Tenkley, Ty Hallberg and Jax Sorensen pulled the Tigers into the lead for a 3-2 win.
