VENEGONI COMMITS TO DIVISION 1 LAKE SUPERIOR STATE UNIVERSITY, SET TO RETURN TO BULLS FOR 20/21 SEASON
The Amarillo Bulls are happy to announce another college commit, with forward Jordan Venegoni officially committing to continue his hockey career with the Lake Superior State University Lakers of Division 1, WCHA.
Venegoni, the Livonia, Michigan native, has been with the Bulls since the 2017/18 season. Since joining the Bulls, Venegoni has amassed 61 points in 110 career games, with this past season being his most productive yet with 27 goals, 24 assists, and 51 total points in 54 games.
This is what Venegoni had to say about playing college hockey, “I am very honored to be given this privilege to play Division 1 hockey and continuing my academics and athletics at Lake Superior State University. I‘d like thank the Amarillo bulls for all they have done for me and help me get to the point I am now. It’s every kids dream to play at the division 1 level and I get to that opportunity in which I couldn’t be more grateful.”
While the talented Venegoni has spent his past three seasons in a Bulls’ sweater, the plan is to have him back as one of the leaders for the 2020/21 season.
Head Coach Rocky Russo on his goal-scoring forward, “We are so proud of Jordan and excited for his entire family. Jordan has been a part of the Amarillo family since I returned in 2017. We have watched him develop as a player and a young man, and are thrilled to see him reach his goal of being a student-athlete at the NCAA Division 1 level. Lake Superior St is a great fit for Jordan as a student and as a hockey player. Coach Whitten and his staff are doing a great job of recruiting and Jordan will be an excellent addition to their program. We are also thrilled to be able to welcome Jordan back to Amarillo for the 2020-21 season and look forward to him being one of our leaders and top performing players.”
