Association mourns death of varsity coach, Shane Gilkey
Athens Youth Hockey Association members are deeply saddened at the unexpected passing of Varsity Hockey Coach Shane Gilkey on Friday, Feb. 27th. Our Association is like an extended family and Shane’s presence, on and off the bench will be missed by the Varsity Team players and parents.  All the players named to the Greater Columbus Club Hockey High School Hockey League All-Star team will be wearing special helmet decals in Coach Gilkey’ s memory on Sunday March 1st.  Shane was a mite, squirt, and peewee coach as well as serving as president of AYHA for two years. We extend our deepest condolences to the Gilkey family. Daniel J Gates, President of The Athens Youth Hockey Association
