Now 3 Years in a Row: Bridgedale Grad National Champ!
Bridgedale grad Tanner Hartman and his Hobart Statesmen teammates beat defending champion Adrian College last Sunday to win the NCAA Division 3 National Championship.
This makes it three years in a row that a Bridgedale grad has hoisted an NCAA Hockey Championship trophy.
Hobart's National Championship, its first ever, caps off a tremendous season in which they also won the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) title, only the second time they'd accomplished that feat.
Tanner had an exceptional season for the Statesmen, playing a regular shift at forward, finishing 6th on the team in scoring (7G and 12A - 19 Pts), and making the NEHC All-Rookie team.
During the season, when we noted the impact he was having at Hobart, we didn't mention how well he was doing academically. But that too is impressive. "I'm so proud of the fine young man he's become," says Tanner's dad Craig. "He's carrying a 4.15 GPA and made the Dean's List."
"Tanner has met and exceeded every challenge he's faced since arriving at Bridgedale as a 6th grader," said Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin. "It is absolutely wonderful to see not only what a great hockey player he's become, but also what a fine young man."
"Obviously, we're very proud of him."
Huge congrats to Tanner for winning the D3 National Championship, for winning the NEHC league championship while earning NEHC All-Rookie Honors, and for doing all this while earning a 4.15GPA and making the Dean's List.
Congratulations to Tanner Hartman (and his parents Kim and Craig) on his outstanding accomplishments.
