The Green Mountain Glades of the Eastern Junior Hockey League have announced that defenseman Chris Sandmeyer has committed to Michigan State University for next year.
Sandmeyer, a 19-year-old Portage native, came to the Glades this year after a stellar high school career at Portage Central High School. He was contemplating another year with the Glades when the opportunity with MSU came to the forefront.
"We are so happy for Chris and his family," Glades coach Chris Line said. "Chris was a valuable part of our team last year and will do a great job at the next level. It couldn't have happened to a better person or teammate."
Sandmeyer posted five goals and 20 points in 40 games this season.
