Tripp McKenney, Director of Sales, Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau, shared a different look for The Classic Center's Grand Hall, as they hosted the first-ever hockey game in Athens, won by the Ice Dogs over Tech, 6-3.  The UGA Ice Hockey Team, dubbed the "Ice Dogs", was established in 1987 by team founder Larry Hall and a group of students wanting to start a new tradition at the University of Georgia.  The Ice Dogs now compete in the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference (SECHC) of the American Collegiate Hockey Association, and play under NCAA rules.
