Topeka forward Gornall switches commitment to North Dakota

April 23, 2015
By Arch Ecker, Topeka RoadRunners
The Topeka RoadRunners of the NAHL have announced that team captain Mike Gornall has adjusted his NCAA Division I college plans and will be skating for the University of North Dakota beginning in Fall 2015. North Dakota is a member of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC).
The Irwin, Pennsylvania native had an agreement to play hockey for the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs but during the admission process, it was mutually agreed that there might be a more suitable fit and he has agreed to head north to Grand Forks, ND.
RoadRunner Head Coach / GM Scott Langer praised the staff at Air Force. “They run a top shelf operation and truly care about what’s best for the student-athlete”, Langer said. “Helping Mike (Gornall) adjust his collegiate path is evidence of what a class act they are.”
Gornall finished 2nd on his team in scoring in 2014-15 and was voted the recipient of the team’s “Hally Hat” award, named in honor of the late Peter Halash and given to the player who best displays a solid work ethic day in and day out. He will join current RoadRunner teammate Matej Tomek who will also attend UND in the fall.
