Press release:

The Batavia Ramparts have placed all three of their Tier III Travel hockey teams in the New York State Championship ship tournament being held March 13th-15th in Amherst. This is a historical event for the 36-year-old organization.

Batavia’s PeeWee (12U), Bantam (14U) and Midget (16U) teams have all qualified as the first seeds for this event. PeeWee coach Jeff Bower, Bantam coach Mike Reich, and Midget coach Marc Staley have worked their teams hard this season and given their teams the tools they needed to succeed.

The Midget and Bantam teams finished their seasons in first place in League play with records of 12-1-1 for Midget, and Bantam 19-1-1. Although the PeeWee’s finished 3rd in League play with a record of 11-4-1 they qualified first for the state tournament by losing only one of their qualifying games.

The Ramparts Hockey organization has only two state titles since its inception, and has never placed three teams in the tournament, let alone three first seeds. Coaches, parents and the Batavia Ramparts organization are proud of their tremendous accomplishments. Thanks also to our team sponsors, Reed Eye Associates -- PeeWee III, Castilone Chrysler Dodge Jeep -- Bantam III, and Logo It -- Midget III.

The Firland Flyers, a Mite Level travel hockey team out of Batavia, NY, took to the road last weekend to play in the 2014 Mullins Mite Madness Tournament in Amherst, Mass., on the uMass campus!

The 2013/2014 season was the inaugural year for The Flyers and the 2014 Mullins Mite Madness Tourney was their last outing as a team. Some of the players will move on to play at the Squirt level; others will continue to play as Mites.

The Flyers team is led by Coach Kevin Hamilton, Coach Fred Hamilton, Coach Dan Hudson and Assistant Coaches Jeff Whitcombe, Ryan Whitcombe and Joe Eschberger, managed by Bob Johnson.

The Firland Flyers Team is made up of 7- and 8-year-olds from Alexander, Batavia, Le Roy, Oakfield and Pavilion.
