Former UMass cheerleaders travel to Buffalo to support team in Frozen Four


BUFFALO (WWLP) – Two former UMass cheerleaders traveled more than 1,600 miles to support the men’s hockey team in their first Frozen Four appearance.

Brothers John and AJ Marotta flew to Buffalo from San Antonio, Texas. John graduated from UMass in 2003, and AJ in 2006.

“It’s one of those moments you don’t miss when you’re an alumni,” John said. 

“We said if they actually win the national championship and we had the opportunity to come and we didn’t, we’d be really mad at ourselves,” AJ added. “So we made it happen!”

The Marottas told 22News they are happy to see a big UMass crowd in Buffalo to cheer on the team.
