MK & Emily played for the Bears from U14 to U19. Graduates of the Canterbury School, both are rising seniors for the Hobart and William Smith Herons. The duo most recently helped the Herons to advance to the UCHC Championship last season.
Emily cites her favorite Polar Bear memory:
"Having Thanksgiving dinner at Fitz's house before leaving for a tournament. I was very surprised how great of a cook he was! I always looked forward to the long weekend trips with my teammates. We were all piled in the van with Coach Bill driving and Janice in the passage seat. Those were the best days!"
Looking back on it, MK had this advice to share with our younger Bears:
"Buy into the process. The polar bear organization creates a fun but very hard working atmosphere with all the aspects needed for success. If you work hard and push yourself, success will come. "
