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.
