St. Ignatius Hockey Team Featured on ESPN's 'SportsCenter'

The St. Ignatius hockey team took center stage Wednesday night, the fourth night of the segment so far. The Wildcats, who ended with a 30-4-1 record on the season, had reached the Ohio state semifinals while fighting for their fifth consecutive state title before everything went to hell.

Here's last night's feature.
