Katie Chiasson '19
Girls Varsity Lacrosse
Pelham, New Hampshire 

Chiasson is a key cog in the GV Lacrosse machine this spring . The junior is off to another great start in her second year in Bobcat Nation and has the Bobcats off to a 4-1 start. This past week, Chiasson was simply dominant recording five goals in two games over the weekend. Friday Brewster cruised to a 13-5 win over Holderness where Katie notched three tallies and Saturday she added two in a 9-6 win over Kimball Union.

"Katie has just been so steady for us through the first half of the season," head coach, Melissa Lawlor. "She is a polished two-way player and has been simply dominant on the draw for us this year. We will continue to rely on her as he move forward in the last month of the season."

Chiasson, a three-sport athlete (field hockey/basketball/lacrosse), will gear up for another big week as the Bobcats host Kimball Union (Wednesday), travel to Tilton (Friday), and Andover (Saturday). Great work and keep it up, Katie!

Joe Sakurai
Boys VarsityTennis
Tokyo, Japan

The BV Tennis team is off to one of it's best starts in recent years and in large part due to the play of Sakurai. The Bobcats are currently 5-0-1 and unbeaten in the Lakes Region and Joe has been dominant. This past week, the junior won all three of his matches in teams wins over Vermont and Holderness along with a tie against Berwick.

"Joe has had a great first month," notes head coach, Bob Kimnach. "He is dialed in on each point and has been hitting the ball extremely well. Looking forward to seeing him compete as we will face teams for a second time over these next few weeks!"

Sakurai, a two-sport athlete (basketball/tennis), hope to have another big week with matches against Cardigan and New Hampton this week. Congratulations and keep it up, Joe!

Past Bobcats of the Week

April 9, 2018

Varsity Softball

Saturday marked opening day for the Bobcat Varsity Softball team and Brewster cruised a 23-9 mercy rule win over a visiting Kimball Union. The win was particularly special since it was played on Brown Field in front of a supportive Bobcat Nation. "It was the first game on campus this spring and the support from the community was great," noted Director of Athletics, Matt Lawlor. "It's days like these that remind us all the importance athletics plays at these schools; it was a nice to kickoff the spring with that kind of energy!"

Despite being down 7-2 after two innings of play, Brewster rallied behind the bat of Hannah Paul who recorded seven RBI's off of a grand slam and three run homer to help give the girls a 13 run inning and a 15-2 advantage. After that monstrous offensive output, the Brewster girls never looked back. "It was fun day for all," noted head coach, Kara McDuffee. "We had many contributors in this win which is why I recommended the team be recognized as Bobcats of the Week!"

Brewster (1-0) will gear up for another home game with Gould on Wednesday and then travel to Hebron next Saturday. Great start, girls!

Gabriela Umansky
Girls Varsity Tennis
San Diego, California

Girls Varsity Tennis got off to a strong start in their opening week earning two road wins over Berwick (Wednesday) and league rival, New Hampton (Saturday). Senior captain, Gabby Umansky had a huge week for the Bobcats. On Wednesday, Umansky cruised to a doubles victory and Saturday the veteran senior stepped in to play singles having not played this year and earned a victory and then completed the sweep on the day with a doubles win as well.

"Gabby is off to a great start," noted long-time head coach, Annemarie Allwine. "As team captain, she has shown great leadership with our new players and has been key to our strong team chemistry. Stepping in and getting wins in both singles and doubles yesterday against a very good New Hampton squad was impressive!"

Umansky, a two-sport athlete (soccer/tennis), will lead her team into a big week as the Bobcats play host to KUA (Wednesday) and travel to Holderness on Sunday. Keep it rolling, Gabby!

Nick Sobell '18
Boys Varsity Lacrosse
Dedham, Massachusetts

On Saturday the BV Lacrosse team put together an impressive 11-6 win over a very talented New Hampton School team. The win snapped the Huskies three year Lakes Region League win streak and it was a special one because it was in front of Bobcat Nation on Brown Field. Several Bobcats had big days but four year senior, Nick Sobell, had a special day and scored a career high five goals while "quarterbacking" a potent Brewster offense.

"Nick had a great day and made some huge plays for us," noted coach Ouellet. "We needed our seniors to step up in this one and he did just that. We will continue to lean on him and the rest of our veteran guys moving forward."

Sobell, a senior captain, will lead the Bobcats (4-1) into another busy week as they travel to Andover (Wednesday) and Holderness (Saturday). Congratulations, Nick!

ackson Byrne '20
Boys JV Lacrosse
Beverly, Massachusetts

Byrne, a newcomer to Bobcat Nation and to lacrosse, helped the Boys JV Lacrosse team to their first win of the season with a convincing 11-2 win over New Hampton Saturday afternoon. Brewster was dominant right from the start thanks to a productive offense and a stout defense. The defense was anchored by Byrne who tallied a bushel of saves and stood tall between the pipes.

"Playing goalie is a tall order for anyone but especially for someone who has never done it before and Jackson has some natural instincts," said first year head coach, Tyler Sikich. "He has embraced his role as our goalie and our guys like playing in front of him."

Byrne is a three-sport athlete (soccer, basketball, lacrosse) will return to action this week with games against Tilton (Wednesday) and Holderness (Saturday). Great work, Jackson!
