Senior cheerleader Amy Peralta (Rochester, NY) was selected to join the Boston Bruins staff for a day with team chef Keith Garman. She was able to assist in the preparation of a pre-workout breakfast and post-workout lunch for the Bruins players and staff at the B's practice facility, Warrior Ice Arena. A portion of her experience was captured and featured on the sixth season of New England Sports Network's (NESN's) series, Behind The B, and aired during episode 13 of their sixth season this past week .
“The experience was great, I was able to get hands on experience in the field. I interacted with all the players and staff, who were all very welcoming. This allowed for a lively and enjoyable environment. This experience helped to reinforce that I want to continue to work in athletic performance nutrition.” Peralta just concluded her senior season as a captain for the cheerleading squad.
This opportunity was made possible through the university’s education partnership with TD Garden and the Boston Bruins.
