As a sophomore, Ben ended the season with thirty-six points, but this year he is already at thirty-four (in eight games). He had eleven points last week helping the Braves defeat both Irondequoit and Penn Yan.

Canandaigua Head Coach Ed Mulheron has plenty of good comments for his junior attackman. "Ben Smith-Wilcox is off to a fantastic start this spring. As an attackman he has the ability to score goals, but also has great vision which helps him identify an open teammate. He always puts the team first and is a great young man to coach."
