The Columbus Jr. Cottonmouths Fight for Victory
Jr. Columbus Cottonmouths fight for their spot in the state championship rounds of hockey.
The Columbus Hockey Association (CHA) is home to the Jr. Cottonmouths and the River Dragons. The Jr. Cottonmouths are a youth travel team for young hockey players around the Columbus area.
The level of competition of each team is determined by the coaches and the CHA hockey directors.
This season’s Jr. Cottonmouths team is led and coached by Clyde Glenn.
“I tell you what... I admire our coaches. These men have consistently set high standards for our children and led them by example,” stated Julie Miller, a “hockey mom”.
Moreover, the Cottonmouths team is made up of youth in our very own community! These players work countless hours on and off the ice, training and preparing for their games. Many of these players are seniors in high school, such as Konner Soskin, Sean Miller, TJ Runic, Chris Napier, Ian Baugh, Logan Mcgahee and Evan Lombard.
“I have been on the team for many years and it is a great group of guys. We are a great team and there is nobody that can beat us but ourselves. We are going to take home the state championship,” remarked Konner Soskin.
The Jr. Cottonmouths have had an incredibly successful season thus far. Recently, they won their third round in the state playoffs against North Gwinnett 5-3. Their following game was Wednesday February 26th, 2020 in Dulah, Georgia where the Cottonmouths lost 4-3 against Woodstock in round 4.
The Snakes are back home to prepare for their next game, Saturday March 7th. The Cottonmouths will be facing off against Pope/Roswell. It is win or go home. The Columbus community is rooting for their home team!
LET'S GO SNAKES!!!
