Live, from the Gene Polisseni Center, it’s RIT Hockey Media Day!
RIT SportsZone is hosting the free, open event at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, in the arena. Tiger Hockey fans will get a preview of the season through featured interviews with men’s and women’s team coaches and players, as well as Lou Spiotti Jr., executive director of intercollegiate athletics at RIT. Afterward, the media will be invited to talk with those in attendance.
