Eastern hockey earn automatic berth

Eastern Washington University is still celebrating their National Championship in football.

But now another campus sport is looking to bring home the championship.

The Eastern Eagles hockey team have received an Automatic Berth to the ACHA National Championship in San Jose, CA. The team did this through winning the ACHA West Region.

The News of the Automatic Berth means the team will not have to go to Logan, UT and participate in the West Regional Tournament to attempt to qualify for the National Tournament. This is the 3rd ever Automatic Berth in EWU’s ACHA history, with the other two coming in 2006-07 and 2007-08.

Information on the National Tournament can be found on the tournament site.

EWU will be in Pool C featuring the #1 West team (EWU), #2 Southeast Team (University of Miami – Ohio), #3 Central team (TBD*), and the #4 Northeast team (TBD*)
