COMMITMENT, SACRIFICE AND RESPONSIBILITY
The Bridgton Academy hockey team came back from a much needed Thanksgiving break and showed Coach Lounsbury and Coach Meserve how much they love playing hockey. "To date, this has been our best week of practice. Guys were highly motivated and truly impressed me with their attitudes" said Head Coach Jon Lounsbury. The coaching staff used a very high tempo practice plan all week and they expect the effort to carry over when BA takes on rivals Hebron Academy, Friday December 4 at Hebron.
BA did manage to have some fun at practice as well. Thursday pre-game practice finished with "Pick A Winner". This is when the entire team lines up and continues to take breakaways until there is only one man left. Not surprisingly, Coaches Lounsbury and Meserve made it to the semi-finals, but a special guest outshinned everyone. Head Lacrosse Coach Garret Bamann won the contest with a move which surprised everyone including himself. "Coach Bamann really showed us some fantastic moves. I wasn't sure a human body was suppose to move that way, but it really worked out for him during "Pick A Winner", said Team Captain Kyle O'Connell.
Bridgton Hockey has busy weekend planned. This weekend also happens to be the Bridgton Academy Hockey Alumni Game. The team will welcome back 40 alumni for a
2:15pm game. They will also welcome Rice AAA Midget Program Saturday 7:00pm and Sunday 11:00am.
