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.
Hailing from Spencer Dorm at Brewster Academy by way of Hyde Park, Massachusetts, this week’s first Bobcat of the Week, “The Double-Double Machine,” none other than Khelsi Petigny, Class of 2022!
