    Brady Smith PhotoWe are proud to congratulate Bridgedale Academy grad Brady Smith, who will start his Division 1 NCAA hockey career next season at Colorado College. 

    Brady, from Bloomington, IL, is now with the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL. He is a powerful, smooth skater known for his puck movement and strong shot.

    Brady recently de-committed from the University of Wisconsin where he'd originally intended to go, committing while still only an 9th grader at Bridgedale.

    Brady said he is looking forward to being a CC Tiger and starting his college hockey career next fall.

    "Brady graduated from Bridgedale a few years back and has matured into a wonderful young man," said Bridgedale Academic Dean Christina di Pauli, who also hails from Bloomington. "Colorado College will be an excellent fit for Brady and all of us at Bridgedale are very excited for him and his parents Mitch and Jennie."

    Congratulations to Brady (and his parents Mitch and Jennie) on his commitment to Colorado College.
