Newbridge Academy U18 Player Announcement – Noah Locke
Noah grew up playing hockey for the St. John’s CAPS – Newfoundland. Playing hockey since the age of nine, Noah has always had great passion and love for the game! He was an Irving Cup champion with the St. John’s Hitmen (major bantam) before joining Newbridge last season as a member of the U16 team. Noah will look to take his abilities upfront this season as a forward, as he returns as a member of the U18 Varsity Prep Team under Coach Matt Anthony. While at Newbridge Noah has excelled both academically and within the athletic program.
“The staff, teachers and coaches at Newbridge work very hard to provide you with the tools to be the best student athlete possible. You become part of a family once you arrive at Newbridge and I’m excited to get back to it. When you’re around individuals with the same goals as yourself, it makes for competition, which pushes your limits. As a student athlete thats what you look for. With the new facilities opening this year it just made the decision to return that much easier”.
“I am very excited to have Noah return this year to Newbridge. He is very smart on and off the ice, which I believe will make the transition to forward a smooth one after playing defense last year. He is a hard working student-athlete who is an integral part of the Newbridge family, and I look forward to working with him again this season.”- Head Coach, Matt Anthony.
