Just eleven days after enduring a tragic shooting that left 17 people dead, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School boy’s hockey team rallied together to give their school a little something to smile about.

Stoneman Douglas won the Tier I SAHOF Florida Hockey State Championship earlier today after beating Jesuit in the finals by a score of 7-4. Three of their seven goals came off the stick of Adam Hauptman, with Matthew Hauptman and Matthew Horowitz adding two apiece.

After losing all three of their round robin games, Majory Stoneman Douglas went on a run, beating top-ranked East Lake by a score of 3-1 in the semi-finals Sunday morning.

This all comes less than two weeks after the haunting scene that unfolded on February 14, when a former student went into Stoneman Douglas and opened fire on innocent students and staff, killing 17 and injuring another 15 before being arrested.
