Smith is looking forward to the 2018-19 season and maintaining the Bobcats spot as the top program in New England and a consistent contender for the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Class AAA title, as well as a National Prep School Championship. Brewster has advanced to the National Final Four nine times in the last eleven years.
Under Smith’s direction, the Brewster Academy program has enjoyed tremendous success.
