BREWSTER, NY -- Austin Withycombe, a forward for the New York Applecore, has committed to Johnson and Wales University for the Fall of 2018. The '99 forward joined the Applecore in mid-November, and while he was only able to play in ten total games over the course of the season, Withycombe made the most of them while racking up a pair of goals and three assists to his name.
With Withycombe's commitment to join the Wildcats, the Applecore have now sent a player to Johnson and Wales in back-to-back seasons, as Tal Finberg made the same decision last year. As for this season, Withycombe joins Bryan Colburn of the Walpole Express who made his commitment to the Wildcats back in January.
The Wildcats spent this past season in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) that sent three teams to the NCAA tournament. Starting this upcoming Fall, they will move over to the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC), which was also well represented in tournament at the end of the year.
