Pray commits to Brockport

Tonawanda, NY native Trevor Pray took to Twitter this week to announce his commitment to Brockport. The 6'3" forward is another excellent recruit, possessing some serious scoring ability.

In his 2015-2016 senior campaign at Kenmore East he made the All-State Team and was Section II's Player of the Year after a 20 goal, 17 assist regular season. In the 6 playoff games that followed he scored an amazing 17 goals and had 7 assists against the best teams in New York.

The state championship game was all him -- he scored the game-tying goal late in the third and then the game winner in overtime in the 3-2 victory over Skaneateles. That performance put him in the Faces In the Crowd section of Sports Illustrated -- sharing that installment of Faces with Lonzo Ball, who went on to play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

After graduating from high school, he spent two seasons in the Juniors with the Walpole Express. In 2016-2017 he had 24 goals and 29 assists, good for 53 points in 40 games. This past season he had a 22-18-40 line in 48 games.

Brockport alumnus Meredith is SUNYAC Coach of the Year

The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) is proud to announce the recipient of Men's Ice Hockey Coach of the Year for the 2017-2018 season. This year, Fredonia head coach Jeff Meredith (who is an alumnus of Brockport) has been voted to receive this honor.

In his 30th season as head coach for the Blue Devils, Meredith led his squad to an overall record of 13-11-4, and a fifth place SUNYAC seeding entering playoffs with a conference record of 7-8-1. The team had a triumphant SUNYAC playoff run, upsetting No. 5 seeded Plattsburgh in the Quarterfinals, 4-3, then upsetting No. 1 seeded Oswego in the semifinals, 3-1, to advance to the SUNYAC championship game.
Meredith entered the 2017-18 season ranked 45th on the all-time NCAA wins list, and earned his 400th career victory in a 7-4 win over visiting Plattsburgh on December 2. This marks Meredith's third SUNYAC Coach of the Year honor.
