Valley Native Maggie Burbidge to play NCAA Division 1

Officially Commits to Robert Morris University

Valley native Maggie Burbidge announced this week that she has committed to join the NCAA’s Division 1, Robert Morris Colonials University women’s hockey team next season.

We caught up with Maggie and asked her about her decision to select Robert Morris (RMU) for her destination.

“I choose Robert Morris because I loved the school and the coaches are great. The atmosphere is awesome and the school is a very hard working place which I loved the environment when I toured. I believe I will grow as a hockey player and as a student going to Robert Morris and it will set me up for success later on in life.”

Maggie’s says she has her family & specifically her parents, Jeff and Alana, to thank for much of her success.

“My family played a huge role in this process. Both of my parents helped shape me into the player and the person I am today by teaching me to have hard work and determination in everything I do and to be better everyday. I wouldn’t have accomplished this without them and I can’t thank them enough for everything they do for me.”

Maggie concluded by saying, “If I had one message I could say to young female athletes in the Annapolis Valley, it would be to never give up on your dreams and your goals. Always work hard at everything you do, because it will pay off in the end and you will achieve great things.”

Congratulations and good luck Maggie, Acadia hockey & the Annapolis Valley will be routing for you!
