After tickets to the men's hockey NESCAC quarterfinal game against Colby sold out last weekend, tickets to the semifinal doubleheader tomorrow also disappeared quickly. Bowdoin will play Hamilton at 1 p.m. and Middlebury will play Trinity at 4 p.m.

The tickets went on sale at noon on Tuesday, and the Athletic Department announced that the 1500 tickets initially allotted to Bowdoin had sold out by 2:30 p.m.

In compliance with NCAA regulations, Bowdoin also provided tickets to each of the visiting institutions. However, the opposing schools did not use all of the tickets and returned the extras to Bowdoin last night.

Students planned to line up to collect the 175 tickets made available to Bowdoin students today at 9 a.m Friday morning.

Director of Athletics Jeff Ward said he was very pleased with the enthusiasm that the community showed for the hockey games.

"I think we're seeing the convergence of a very good team and a very nice building," he said.

Tickets for the championship game will be available after the semifinals on Saturday.
