Bulldogs Hockey: A Season of Rebuilding

As the Judge Memorial Bulldogs had their first hockey practice on August 25, they were all very excited about beginning hockey season, despite having to be at Steiner Aquatics Center at 6:00 AM. They were all very tired, but happy to be there because they are hoping to get past their recent struggles. Although Judge has a storied history for their hockey time, they have not done their best in the past few years.

"We have a very young team," says coach head coach Todd Brown, "but we are growing and we are looking to improve on last year." Coach Brown is new to the Judge Hockey program and he hopes to start off his Judge Hockey career right as the team prepares for Sky View on September 8th. "We have many new challenges this year, but I have also seen a lot of improvement in our first practices." The Bulldogs are led by Shawn Benvugnue, junior, and Steve Strehl, sophomore.

Freshman hockey player, Wilson Lamb, is just as excited about this season as Coach Brown is. "We have a lot of talent on our team this year," he explains, "As long as we work together as a team we have the potential to beat anybody." Although this is his first year of Judge Hockey, Wilson can't wait to play, even if he is only on the junior varsity team. He has been playing hockey since he was little and is very excited about getting to play at the high school level. Even though this is a rebuilding year for the Bulldogs Hockey team, the expectations for this season are very high.
