  3. Husker21 says:

    The question shouldn’t be what is Donnie Ice. You should be asking, who is Donnie Ice?

  4. Ol # 7 says:

    Ridgefield- 15
    Somers- 7

    Donnie Ice is the Nickname of Ridgefield Off coordinator Don Connelly.

    You can get Lemon-Cherry or Rainbow.

    Does this mean they will be serving Ices at Somers? It is supposed to be in the 80’s. Put me down for Lemon.

    I’m curious to see how Prep fares after a rough start. They’re a good team but have to show what they’re made of right now. They had a front loaded schedule.
