U16 Girl’s Varsity Team is excited to have Emma Bishop coming back!
Newbridge Academy is excited to start revealing its 2018-2019 rosters for its Varsity Hockey program. With the additions to our staff that have recently been announced, Newbridge is poised to build on the past successes of our program and work towards taking it to the next level.
First up for the U16 Girl’s Varsity team is Emma Bishop from Dieppe, New Brunswick. Emma is returning to Newbridge for her third year and will be in grade 11. She is a great leader for this team and proves it with her dedication to all aspects of the role of student-athlete. “My past two years at Newbridge have been nothing but great, not only did I improve on the ice but also in the classroom. I can’t wait for another great year of hockey with all of my teammates and friends,” said Emma.
Her goal is to play Division I Hockey in university and hopes to gain the exposure she needs while playing at Newbridge. She notes her most memorable achievement in her hockey career so far was winning the Atlantic Challenge Cup representing New Brunswick.
“Emma is a leader- period. She has a relentless work ethic that is by definition what leadership is all about. As the returning captain, she will be the pulse of this year’s team and her infectious work ethic will be the benchmark for new and returning players,” said Kirk Tomlinson, Director of Female Varsity Hockey.
