Northwood, NH: The Coe-Brown Northwood Academy (CBNA) boys’ varsity basketball coach, Headmaster David S. Smith, marked his 450th career win recently and was honored during a special presentation prior to Friday evening’s game against John Stark Regional High School.

The 450th win occurred on Saturday, December 27, during a holiday tournament game against Keene High School. CBNA Athletic Director Matt Skidds presented Mr. Smith with a trophy commemorating the event. Assisting in the presentation were Farmington High School Principal Mike Lee and Tom Hall, who retired as CBNA athletic director two years ago. Both Mr. Lee and Mr. Hall played for Mr. Smith early in his coaching career.

In an interesting twist, the coach of tonight’s opponent, John Stark Regional High School, is Headmaster Smith son, Michael Smith, who played basketball for Headmaster Smith while attending Coe-Brown in the early 1990s. Coe-Brown emerged victorious in tonight’s matchup by a score of 64 to 46. Mr. Smith has served as the Academy’s headmaster for 27 years and has been involved in coaching basketball for nearly 40 years.

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy (CBNA), founded in 1867, is a small co-educational public-private secondary school accepting students in grades 9-12 and offering the highest quality curriculum of studies. The academy campus is located on the shores of Harvey Lake in Northwood, New Hampshire. For more information visit
