The Students and Staff at St. Anthony's School will be continuing a tradition, yet again this year to show their support for their local Drumheller Dragons.

They will be wearing orange, or if they have it, Dragons clothing to school on the days there are home playoff games. The first day to wear orange was on TOrange Shirt Day 2hursday March 7.

"I brought it to our school the past few years, and we try to do it every year. I know a lot of other communities in the AJHL and BC hockey league do this as well, especially in small towns where the players for the teams are in the school and they are helping out with activities. It's really good to give back," says Gavin Makse, Athletic Director for St. Anthony's School.

The students really enjoy getting to show their support for the Dragons.

"You get to wear orange, and your jersey to school; because they get cool awesome goals," Dragons fan Ryder Hems tells us.

The students and staff at St. Anthony's are rooting for the Dragons to go all the way to the RBC cup, but just want to see them go as far as possible.

"We really appreciate them because they come to our school and volunteer in our classrooms and help out in our classes, so we want to show the support back to them as a community and their playoff drive to get all the way to the Royal Bank Cup Championships," explains Makse.

The Dragon's next playoff game is on Sunday March 10, at 2:00 PM. The next home game, if they will have one, is undetermined at this time.
