Prep notes: Hockey championships begin Friday

Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 11:47pm

Six teams — four from the midstate — will compete for the Tennessee high school Predators Cup ice hockey championships which will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the A-Game Sportsplex outside Brentwood.

The GNASH (Greater Nashville Area Scholastic Hockey) regular season champion Pope JPII and Brentwood open the round-robin format tourney at 6:10 p.m. Friday, followed by Williamson County rivals Ravenwood vs. Centennial at 7:40 and a third game at 9:10 between the Knoxville Warriors and Christian Brothers.

Ravenwood and Centennial are the No. 2-3 seeds after Ravenwood came out of the losers bracket to beat Centennial 4-3 in the recent Nashville Cup tournament finals.

Play continues Saturday with six games, with the last rounds Sunday morning.

All teams are invited to attend the Predators NHL game with Columbus Saturday at Bridgestone Arena.

Harpeth Hall plans new athletic facility

Last week, Harpeth Hall announced plans to build a new athletic facility on its campus, which would include two multi-purpose courts for basketball and for volleyball, locker rooms, training room, fitness room, two rooms for wellness classes, along with space for concession and storage and laundry areas.

“The proposed facility will replace current outdated facilities and is intended to support ongoing athletic and wellness programs,’’ said Ann Teaff, Harpeth Hall's head of school, said in an email.

The school has planned a 7 p.m. meeting with neighbors on March 30 in the Patton Visual Arts Center on campus. The project must await approval from the Metro Board of Zoning Appeals which next meets in April.

Wow! TWO new athletic facilities for Harpeth Hall. I knew they had lots of money, but this is ridiculous.
