Siegel Shines at Norwich
Freshman year at college can be challenging. Being a Freshman student athlete on a nationally ranked hockey team makes everything a little worse. BA Alum Eric Siegel (Wilmington, MA/Wilmington High School) has continued to excel both academically and atheletically. The Norwich Cadets won the 2010 Division 3 National Championship at Lake Placid, NY. Unfortunately, Eric suffered a serious knee injury that kept him out for the second half of the year. Prior to the injury, Eric was playing regularly for the Cadets and seeing ice time on the power play. Additionally, he won 75% of faceoffs taken and played outstanding end zone defense.
With a extremely demanding hockey schedule, including rehabilitation, Eric has continued to excel academically. As History/Criminal Justice Major, Eric made the Spring's Dean's list. "The study habits I learned at Bridgton really helped me be a more complete student this year. The fact I know how to study and stay organized and prepared has made all the difference" said Siegel.
