GLEN ROCK, N.J. — At only 50 degrees, it may have seemed a bit cold for working with water, but the Glen Rock High School Panther hockey team is used to it. An Oct. 10 car wash on South Maple Avenue aimed to raise money for the team -- specifically for ice time to practice.

"It's great because it helps the kids get together. It's a great team-building experience for them," parent organizer Angela Crawford told Daily Voice. "They have a lot of fun."

The Panthers, who practice at the Ice House in Hackensack, ordinarily need to raise between $15,000 to $18,000 a year to help fund the program, Crawford said.

Supporters are planning a pancake breakfast in December, plus other events to help the team reach its goal.

The car wash was "the first event for us starting the season and we're excited to start," senior player Luke Visconti said.

The Panthers  finished 21-4-3 last season and made it to the state semifinals.With several returning players, the team hopes to have more success.
