Bobcats of the Week

Brewster Athletics

Saturday Boys' Varsity Lacrosse defeated the New Hampton School 15-8 in front of the biggest crowd Brown Field has ever seen for a Brewster athletic event in the Lakes Region League Championship game. The Bobcats dominated a very strong New Hampton School in every facet of the game and the win was the Bobcats' 16th consecutive victory as they finished their storybook season 16-1. “I'm just incredibly grateful for this group and program," noted a proud head coach, Jason Ouellet, who just completed his fourth season at the helm. "We had a fun year and I'm really just happy for these guys, especially this senior group. They did a nice job of leading, and our underclassmen followed. I am just happy to be a part of it all!

Brewster, who dominated the Lakes Region League from 2005 to 2014, gave way to New Hampton who took over the torch for the last four years winning the title in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. "This is just a great rivalry between the two programs," noted Director of Athletics Matt Lawlor. New Hampton is an excellent program coached by some great coaches and we have tons of respect for them. However, this Brewster team was special and I am not surprised that this group got the title back to Bobcat Nation. Our coaching staff is outstanding as Jay and Doug have established a strong culture that is carried year round by their players. And this team was just fun to watch—what a special atmosphere for the last weekend on campus; a really special win for not only Boys Lacrosse but our entire community!"

2019 Boys' Varsity Lacrosse


Jack Von Hoene ’19 - Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse 
Brewster Athletics

Von Hoene, a newcomer to Bobcat Nation, was primarily used as the backup goalie for the Boys' Varsity Lacrosse team this season but came up huge this week posting two wins for Brewster en route to leading his team to the Lakes Region League Tournament title. Von Hoene played his best in the biggest game of the year on Saturday as he propelled the Bobcats to a 15-8 over defending LRL champ and long-time rival, New Hampton, in front of a very supportive Brown Field crowd.

“Jack came up huge for us today. He stood on his head—or better yet—he stood on his nose in the cage today!" noted assistant Doug Skelley. "This is why high school athletics is so special and this team is so great; we lose a key guy and it is literally 'next man up' mentality and that 'next man' was Jack Von Hoene! It couldn't have happened to a better kid and we are just so happy for him."

Von Hoene, a two-sport athlete (lacrosse/sailing), will continue his lacrosse playing career next year at Ohio Wesleyan. Congratulations Jack on being named our Bobcat of the Week!
