Jr. B 2011-2012 Captains Announced

Coach Meserve is happy to announce Cory Durkin (Narragansett, RI) as Captain of this year’s Jr. B Hockey team and Billy Smith (Boston, MA) as Assistant Captain.

Durkin comes to Bridgton Academy from Narragansett High School where he played four years of hockey and soccer. Durkin was a two time captain of his hockey team and a senior captain of his soccer team. In 2007-2008 Durkin’s hockey team won the RI DIII State Championship.

“I feel lucky to have the opportunity to lead such a great group of hockey players and individuals,” said Durkin when asked about his selection. “It’s going to be a long season but if our team plays the way we should, we can be very successful.”

Joining Durkin is Smith who was also named Assistant Captain of his Brookline High School Varsity hockey team where he played for four years prior to attending Bridgton Academy.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun to watch our potential unravel” commented Smith. “We have a competitive schedule and we are going to have some real battles, but our coaches have prepared us well.”
