Tabor Academy & St. Sebastians face off to honor Travis Roy

MARION — Travis Roy still has a soft spot for his alma mater, Tabor Academy.

A former Seawolf, Roy was the man of the hour February 4 for the 16th annual Travis Roy Cup hockey matchup between Tabor and the St. Sebastian Arrows, held inside the Travis Roy Arena.

Coming back to Tabor, though, can be bittersweet, Roy said.

“When I was here I was able-body and had the whole world ahead of me,” he said. “I can still remember that.”

In May 1995 Roy graduated from Tabor and headed to Boston University on a hockey scholarship. Just five months later, Roy slid headfirst into the boards during a matchup against the University of North Dakota, cracking his fourth and fifth vertebra.

Since his accident, Roy has spent the last 16 years traveling across New England as a motivational speaker and generating donations for the “Travis Roy Foundation.” Roy created the foundation in 1997, which has since generated over $2.5 million for spinal cord injury research.

Roy said the Travis Roy Cup rivalry between Tabor and St. Sebastian’s School in Needham began with the coaches and athletic directors. The coaches from both schools thought an annual game would make for both a great hockey game and fundraiser he said.

Travis Roy is a great speaker, and I have been lucky to have the chance to hear him speak at my school. If you can, please visit his foundation HERE and help to support his cause. Thanks!

Belmont Hill & Nobles prep hockey rivals now stars at Princeton

Mike Condon and Derrick Pallis are best of friends now, Princeton University teammates focused on trying to keep the puck out of the net for the men’s hockey squad.

Condon, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound junior goalie from Needham, shares time in goal with sophomore Sean Bonar.

A 6-foot-1, 190-pound senior defenseman from Medfield, Pallis anchors the blue line for the Tigers.

The two were rivals in the Independent School League, with Condon tending goal for Belmont Hill School while Pallis suited up for Noble & Greenough School in Dedham. They went head-to-head four times, with Belmont Hill winning three, according to Condon.

“We’re always chirping at each other, sometimes about our private school days, but in a respectful way,’’ said Condon, who helped Princeton complete a 1-0-1 weekend with 27 saves in a 3-3 tie against ninth-ranked Cornell last Saturday night.

Nobles and Belmont Hill represent some of New England’s  prep school hockey at it’s finest. Lots of players from both schools have gone on to play DI or DIII college hockey, and there are a few NHL players or alumni from both schools.

This would be more of a story of it were Nobles and Milton grads, but it’s a good story anyways. Nobles’ biggest rival is Milton, and not Belmont Hill. St. Seb’s hates Belmont Hill. In fact, when I toured St. Seb’s, they told me that it was a requirement that you do your best to beat Belmont Hill whenever possible.

Nobles v. Belmont Hill would make a pretty good Frozen Fenway matchup. Both teams are battling to get up in the standings in the Keller division of the ISL. A lot of people thought that Nobles would be better this year, but they lost a few really good players to graduation and to juniors.
