Augusta RiverHawks owners Bob and Diane Kerzner joined James Brown Arena general manager Monty Jones Jr. tonight in a pregame ceremony to officially announce an extension of the team's lease agreement.

The one-year extension will ensure the Southern Professional Hockey League team will remain in Augusta through 2013. The RiverHawks are in their second year of the original two-year lease. The team reached the league championship series in its inaugural season and has spent most of the 2011-12 season in first place.
