Hunter Proulx '19
Girls' JV Basketball
Wakefield, New Hampshire
This winter the Girls' JV Basketball team has become amongst the most popular teams on campus. The team is made up of some great kids who have been representing Bobcat Nation well on and off the floor through their first month of the season. Sophomore Hunter Proulx has been one of the leaders of this elite group thus far. She has emerged as one of the team's best defenders and is always demonstrating positive leadership. "Hunter's approach and attitude is what all Bobcats should strive for," noted interim head coach, Melissa Lawlor. "She's upbeat, positive, and always puts the team first. She had a great week and got 2017 off to an awesome start with the tone she has set!"
Proulx, a two-sport athlete (crew/basketball), will return to action this week as the Bobcats host New Hampton on Saturday. Great work, Hunter!
Thomas Allen '17
Boys' Prep Basketball
Raleigh, North Carolina
Allen, a newcomer to Bobcat Nation, is one of several reasons why coach Smith's team is rolling once again. The Bobcats have risen to the top of the National Prep polls once again with the help of Allen's play in the Brewster backcourt. On Sunday afternoon in a huge league contest, Allen nailed seven three points and finished with a game high 25 points en route to Brewster's 107-80 win over a talented and respected Northfield Mount Herman team. "Thomas has shot the ball well for us this year," noted veteran head coach, Jason Smith. "His ability to make shots spreads defenses out and opens up chances for others. Thomas is also tough on the defensive end due to his lateral quickness."
Allen, who will return to home next year to play college ball at NC State, leads the Bobcats into a huge week with road games at Vermont, MacDuffee, and Monterverde Prep (FL) at the famed Hoophall Classic. Well done and best of luck, Thomas!
