49 Years of Bridgton Academy at Curry

49 years of Bridgton Academy history was represented at the recent BA-Curry College football game on September 20th. Current football parents put on a wonderful tailgate following the 28-18 Wolverine victory. The Admission Office was also busy at work, welcoming a handful of prospective 2011 families to the reception. The prospective families had the opportunity to learn more about BA from not only faculty and coaches, but alumni, parents, and friends as well. Former BA football coach Bud Burbank was also in attendance. Bud’s brother, Tom, a 1959 Academy graduate, presented him with a BA football sweatshirt. The Curry game is always a great time, as alumni who now play on the Curry team face-off with the current crop of Bridgton players. Bridgton has changed over the years, going from a four year to school to one that caters solely to the PG (post graduate) student.

The following alumni were seen at the game: (Sorry if we missed you) Jim McGillen ’59, George Mullin ’59, Bob Weston ’59, Tom Burbank ’59, Mike Klapman ’71 (now a current parent as well), Bob O’Sullivan ’84, Skip Bandini ’77 (also Curry College’s Head Football Coach!), Joe Daley ’77, Matt Burgess, Jon Lounsbury ‘01, Nick Markos ’00, Pat Shairs ’02, Wil Colon ’04 (whose brother, Kevin, is a member of the Class of 2010), Jamal Woods ’06, Maurice Rodriguez ’06, Jason Ryan ’07, and David Bonaparte ’08.

Be sure to check the Wolverine athletic schedules for a game near you!
