Bobcats of the Week

April 24, 2017

David Hersey

On Friday night at Kingswood High School, the Brewster teachers/coaches took on the Kingswood teachers/coaches in the third annual Brewood Classic. The game is a charity game with all proceeds going to the Kingswood Youth Center in Wolfeboro. Coach Hersey put together a night to remember and scored a career high 27 points (7 three pointers) and was named MVP of the game. Coach Hersey, a Kingswood alum and former multi-sport standout for the Knights, played for KHS due to a shortage of players on their bench. "I was traded during warmups," said Hersey. "Kingswood needed a few more player so since coach Theriault and I are both Kingswood grads, we agreed to help out the home team. I've never shot the ball that well in my life! I do bleed Bobcat Navy and Cardinal but there still is a tint of Kingswood Green in me!"

Hersey, a three season coach for Brewster (cross country, girls varsity basketball, and varsity baseball), was named the game's Most Valuable Player for his efforts. "He was in a zone," recalls Brewster player/coach, Matt Lawlor. "He had a certain look in his eyes when I told him he was going to play for his alma mater; he just looked at me and slowly winked. He was a man on a mission. And, when we hired coach Hersey a few years ago, he was one of those hires that I get excited about because I know he can teach and coach but I had a feeling he could help us in the Brewood! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that he would be the guy to beat us!"

Regardless, it was a fun event for all as the Brewood Classic again brought two communities together and raised funds for a great cause!
Kate Nice  '18
Varsity Softball 

New Brunswick, Canada

Varsity softball has finally been able to take field this past week to open their season. The girls opened this week with tough losses against very strong Hebron and Holderness teams but they have shown promise and have some bright spots. Junior third baseman, Kate Nice has been at the center of that promise for the Bobcats. Through just two games, the New Brunswick native has two home runs and has made a slew of plays in the field. "Kate is off to a strong start and it's no surprise to any of us," noted first year head coach, Kara McDuffie. "She is a great athlete and a five tool player who is not so NICE to opposing pitchers!"

Nice and her squad will return to action next week as they travel to face one of the better teams in the league in Proctor Academy. Keep it up, Kate!
Brendan Cray  '17
Boys Varsity Lacrosse 

Amherst, New Hampshire

Boys varsity lacrosse had a huge week on the friendly confines of Brown Field.  On Wednesday, the Bobcats knocked off Andover 10-9 in an overtime thriller and on Saturday the boys defeated league foe, Holderness 10-6. Many contributed in both contests but it was the play of post-graduate attackman, Brendan Cray that stood out. Cray had a slew of goals and a bushel of assists in both games as his quick and shifty play has been a handful for opposing defenders. "Brendan is really coming along at the right time," noted second year head coach, Jason Ouellet. "He has great quickness and is very tough, which makes him difficult to prepare for defensively. Believe it or not, I was once that quick back in my day. Regardless, he is fun to coach because he gives so many options."

Cray, who starred in football and lacrosse at Souhegan High School (Amherst, NH), has been a two-sport standout in Bobcat Nation this year as he was a integral member of the cross country team this fall. Brendan and Co. will head into another busy week where they continue with their homestand hosting Bridgton (Wednesday) and Hebron (Saturday). Well done and best of luck, Brendan!

Past Bobcats of the Week

April 17, 2017

David Winick '18
Boys' Varsity Tennis
Milton, Massachusetts

The snow has finally cleared and the tennis season has officially begun in Bobcat Nation. This past week was a busy one for Brewster BV Tennis as they started the season with two tough road matches at Proctor and New Hampton. Despite losing the overall matches, returning junior, David Winick is off to a strong start as he has picked up two wins playing singles for the Bobcats. "David is a consistent player and has always been," noted head coach Bob Kimnach. "He hits the ball well and has a great mind for the sport. Looking forward to see how he fares the rest of the way!"

Winick, a two-sport varsity athlete (cross country/tennis), will return to action with his mates this week with a home match against Vermont Academy (Wednesday), on the road at Berwick (Friday), and hosting Holderness on Saturday. Congratulations and keep up the great work, David!
Emily Tremblay '18
Girls' Varsity Lacrosse 

Concord, New Hampshire

Emily Tremblay had a huge week for GV Lacrosse this past week. The transfer from Bishop Brady (Concord) High School has given the Bobcats a huge lift in goal in the first two weeks of the season and was key to the Bobcats two wins this week. On Wednesday, Brewster ran into a very talented Exeter squad and despite the 14-5 loss, the newcomer had 16 saves. On Friday in a convincing 14-5 league win over Proctor, Emily registered 14 saves and tallied another 17 saves during Brewster's 16-3 win over Kimball Union. "Emily has really stepped up for us early on," noted veteran head coach Melissa Lawlor. "She is a great competitor, and we just love having her 'between the pipes for us!"

Tremblay, a three-sport athlete (field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse), will lead the 4-1 Bobcats into a busy week with games against New Hampton (Wednesday) and at Holderness on Friday. Well done and best of luck this week, Emily!
