BYH Players have an outstanding performance at the USA Hockey Regional/District tryouts
We are extremely proud to announce that Jenn Gregg, Thomas Liebold, Andrew Mesick, Rebecca Gregg, Allie Kelly, Jayden Kelley and Grace Spath were all selected to participate in developmental camps this summer.
Jenn Gregg, who was a goalie on BYHA’s Bantam A team this past season, was selected to participate in the girls USA Hockey National Development U15-Selects Camp held in St. Cloud Minnesota. This elite developmental camp invites the very best players at each level nationally from its 12 Districts. Jenn is one of only 6 players, and the only goalie with a 1999 birth year, selected from New York State to attend this camp. It is the second consecutive year that Jenn was selected for this camp, which is a tremendous accomplishment.
Thomas Liebold, who was a forward on BYHA’s Bantam A team and the Bethlehem High School team this past season, and Andrew Mesick, who was also a forward on BYHA’s Bantam A team, were selected to participate in the boys New York State’s Developmental Camp for 2000 birth years. This camp will be held in July in Oswego, NY. Approximately 15 of the best players from each section are selected to participate in this camp – this is a great accomplishment for both Thomas and Andrew.
Rebecca Gregg who played on BYHA’s Bantam B team this past season was selected to participate in the USA Hockey Girls U14-17 Multi-District Select Player Development Camp in Kent, OH. Rebecca was selected for this camp after successfully advancing from the Regional tryouts held in Plattsburg to the District tryouts in Cicero. Rebecca is one of 3 girls selected from NY to attend this camp.
The BYH PW A team had a fantastic showing from its girl players this year. Allie Kelley (goalie, 2001), Jayden Kelley (forward, 2001) and Grace Spath (defense, 2002) have all advanced to the girls NYS Player Development Camp for 2001-2002 birth years. All three had an outstanding showing at the Regional Tryouts held in Plattsburg back in April. This is the highest level camp that 2001/2 birth year players can achieve. Watch these 3 players in years to come and expect to see exciting things from all of them.
