New Richmond Bantam B team wins state for Nate
Why compete for a state championship? For the New Richmond Bantam B hockey team, the answer may not be just the obvious one.
The Bantams went to state, and won it, for Nate. Nathan Ryckman, who was scheduled to coach the team this winter, died of complications of pneumonia on Thanksgiving. His team, coached by friend and co-worker Ryan Neville and Joe Hailey, dedicated their season and their trip to state to Nate.
