Walpole, MA - The Walpole Express are excited to announce the commitment of Team Captain Mike Meredith to SUNY Brockport. The Fredonia, NY native is in his 3rd year with the Express program playing the 2017-2018 season with the Express EHLP team before making the jump to the EHL last year.
“Mike has been a great leader both on and off the ice this season," said Head Coach Cody Campbell. "He has been a gigantic part of our penalty kill and a very reliable center for us. Mike embodies the culture we want to have here and is going to be a wonderful addition to the hockey team and student body at Brockport. We couldn’t be happier for him accomplishing his goal of playing NCAA hockey.”
The Brockport Golden Eagles play in the SUNYAC conference, a league that Mike grew up watching.
“I want to study Exercise Science and Brockport has a great program for that, making it a great fit," said Meredith. "As an athlete Brockport just made sense to me. They’re a good team and play in such a competitive league.”
”Playing for the Express has helped me develop so much as a player but also as a person," added Meredith. "My coaches are always pushing me to do my best and making sure I’m ready to make the jump into college hockey. I’m extremely thankful for my time with the Express and excited about joining the Golden Eagles!”
The entire Express organization is proud of Mike and congratulates him on his college commitment.
