Coach Benner Lands at Lycoming College

Fans of the Wolverine blogs have long been enjoying the hard work for our Sports Information Intern, Kyle Benner. Kyle came to BA to learn all about sports information and help out in the communications office (a position that we are currently interviewing for), and in the process Kyle convinced Coach Lesure that he could help out with the basketball team. Soon it became clear that Kyle had a good head for coaching, and Benner handled a good deal of the scouting for the program.

Bridgton Academy wishes Kyle the best of luck and we look forward to seeing him be successful at Lycoming College.
