JASM Hockey 2022 Teams

Hockey Game Results

JASM colleagues came from afar to volunteer their time and energy to help support scholarships. Two teams (JASM West and JASM East) faced off last night in a test of skill and scientific passion with JASM East prevailing in a 9-7 victory following a tied game early in the third period. The players, spectators, and sponsors (Yokogawa FlowCam, WRS, and Green Eyes) raised over $2,000: JASM societies will share $1,367 to support student scholarships. Thank you!
