August 7 ,2010 – Robert Banks, Forward for the Tennessee Ice Vols, was selected to take part in the inaugural ACHA Division III Travel Team which will head to Europe over the Winter Break. Banks is one of six players from the South Region to make the team, but will be the sole representative for the Southeastern Collegiate Hockey Conference.
“It is just unbelievable to be selected,” said Banks. “I’m happy to be able to represent the SECHC and show the talent that is in the conference.”
Banks made first impressions on the selection committee during the fall semester, where he was a leader on the ice for the Ice Vols. His season performance earned him a slot in the ACHA Division III All-Star weekend at the end of March.
In four games for the Southern Independent All-Star team, Banks had 3 goals, and 4 assists, with an assist in each game. He led the team and finished in a tie for fourth among all players on the weekend.
“I’m looking forward to some excellent hockey, representing the country, and most importantly representing the conference and the University of Tennessee.”
