Bobcats of the Week

Khelsi Petigny '22 - Girls' Varsity Basketball
Brewster Athletics

As a member of the Girls’ Varsity Basketball team, this experienced Bobcat has been the mainstay of her team since the season debut in New Jersey this past weekend. In the four opening games, she has scored 14, 21, 12, and 12 points respectively while pulling down double-digit rebounds in three of those four games. Not known for her flashiness as a player, instead she brings hard, consistent play and effort to her team and loud, positive support to her teammates. 

In the Championship game of the Peddie Tournament, she pulled down the crucial offensive rebound in the closing 30 seconds of play off of a missed free throw to keep the ball in Brewster’s possession and to sustain the lead versus Seminaire Saint-Francois. In Wednesday’s defeat over rival New Hampton School, she never left the court—continuing to be the anchor of the Bobcat defense. She went on to pull down her third double-double of the season versus the Huskies. And, in a moment in the third quarter where baskets were hard to come by for Brewster, she stepped up and sunk a huge THREE to propel her team into the lead. Amazingly, she has accomplished all this with two metal shoulders and battling through other injuries.

Charlie Lopardo '22 - Boys' Varsity Basketball
Brewster Athletics

This member of the Boys’ Varsity Basketball squad has been an exceptional leader and player for the team since the start of the season. Leading the Bobcats in points scored every game thus far this winter, he also coordinates the team’s offense as the starting point guard. His passion for the game of basketball is unmatched by very few others. This passion materializes itself in numerous ways: verbally encouraging his teammates, holding them accountable, showing relentless positivity, and of course playing with intense physical effort. This Bobcat cares deeply about the game of basketball and his Bobcat team.

In two recent contests versus the Winchendon School and Gould Academy, he finished each game with 25+ points. His quality play was marked by great decision making, along with efficient and high percentage shots taken. It comes as no surprise that he was recently elected Captain of the Bobcat Varsity team by his peers as their senior leader this season.
