During his brief tenure as co-team captain for Boys’ JVB Basketball, this young man has set a fine example for others to follow by being relentless and committed to his daily training, helping others, and above all having fun playing the game of basketball. One thing that stands out about this Bobcat is the fact that he is always emotionally lifting up his teammates on the court. In this week’s contests versus Tilton, Holderness, and Kimball Union Academy, he demonstrates grit and passion, coupled with his incredible defense and blocking ability. He spurred his team to quality wins over the Lake’s Region finest competition. In the squad’s most recent home game against KUA, he showed good sportsmanship to the opposing team by helping a player up after he had tripped. This is the mark of a true Bobcat and sportsman. He also dominated on the boards versus KUA that day, helping to extend JVB’s winning streak to six in a row! Hailing from Vaughan Dorm by way of New York, New York, this week’s first Bobcat of the Week is none other than the “Rebound Machine,” Dylan Tal ’25.
Bobcats of the Week
Our next Bobcat—a member of the Boys’ Varsity Hockey team—is a tenacious competitor and a focused, driven athlete. Every time he steps on the ice, he is a spark for the hockey team. An all-around player with demonstrated quality defensive play combined with elite scoring ability make this Bobcat one of the most complete players in the Lakes Region. This past week he demonstrated multiple exceptional performances; scoring a game-tying goal with under a minute to play versus New Hampton when the goalie was pulled, adding another pair of assists in a big win over Berwick Academy at home, and netting another short-handed goal to get the Bobcats on the board in a much-needed win over Hebron Academy. He has produced an exceptional 26 points in 17 games this season to date. Hailing from Sargent 3 Dorm by way of West Chazy, N.Y., this week’s second Bobcat of the Week is the relentless Dalton Kane ’23.
Alpine Skiing requires a number of factors in order to be successful: teamwork, passion, determination, competitive spirit, resilience, and a love for skiing. This Bobcat keeps the team honest when it comes to being on time and making the most out of their training on the slopes. In Brewster Alpine’s first race at Pat’s Peak, he had a great first run and DNF on his second, which sparked a determination to push himself to do better in the team’s race at Gunstock. At Gunstock he was able to pull out two flawless runs with a combined time of 1:03.2, placing him at the head of the pack in the boys’ division. His passion for the sport is ignitable and contagious. On top of that, he is well-known around campus for his passion for X-games sports: his mountain biking skills in particular are quite impressive! Hailing from Avery Dorm at Brewster Academy by way of Concord, N.H., this week’s first Bobcat of the Week, Brewster’s Extreme Sports extraordinaire, is none other than Roffee Loosigian ’23!
Our second Bobcat of the Week is a Girls’ Varsity Hockey player who has continued to work hard day in and day out to improve all aspects of her game. In the team’s last three games, this hot hand for the Bobcats has notched a goal in each contest! She finds the open space on the ice, uses her speed effectively, and most importantly she shoots to score. In a recent home game versus NYA, she snuck back door on her defender and one-timed a beautiful pass from her teammate and linemate Shannon Murphy—overcome with joy to bring her team back in the game (tying the score). Coach Jamie Smith says, “She is an awesome player to coach and I am so proud of all her effort she has given our team for the past two seasons. I look forward to watching her grow as a player and a person throughout her time at Brewster!” Hailing from Bearce Dorm at Brewster Academy by way of Milford, Conn., this week’s second Bobcat of the Week is powerhouse Teagan Garfield ’24!
