Two athletes were named All-Section: Ariana Torke and Ashley O’Hara.

The Varsity Boys won the League Championships, Varsity and JV Boys won the Dan Purdy invitational, JV Boys won the Rhode Island invitational and the Brewster Bear Classic, with the Top 5 varsity runners all earning All-League and Varsity Boys winning the Somers Big Red Invitational. Highlights for the season included placing well at their County and Sectional meets. Next year, they are expecting a few All-County individuals.

As a team, Girls Cross Country placed 1st at the Dan Purdy Invite in Pawling and 3rd at Northern Counties at Bowdoin. The girls were looking forward to a strong finish to the season at state qualifiers and were ready for some personal records as individuals.


Field Hockey – Girls Varsity

Captains: Ava Katsetos, Kaitlyn Sayegh, and Eliana Thompson

Coaches: Cheryl Corbett and Jennifer Purcell

Seasonal record: 4-12

Field Hockey – Girls JV

Captain: Kylie Goodliffe

Coach: Carly Corbett

This season, Kylie Goodliffe scored 2 goals in one game, Haley Jaconetti had 100 saves this season, Emma Douglas had nice shots, Chloe Zapoli had very good defense. Looking to next year, the JV field hockey team would like to continue to work closer as a team.


Football – Boys Varsity

Coaches: Ed Mulvihill, Ryan Cleary, Matt Cunningham, Mike Honey, and Jeff Snyder

Seasonal highlights include winning their Zacc Attack game vs. Fox Lane in a close, one score game (thanks to Colin LaMoreaux’s game saving tackle at the 1 yard line).

Football – Boys JV

Captains: Aidan Bisignano, Cameron LaMoreaux, Brody Snyder, and Mikey Subin

Coaches: Cristiano Ciatto, Nick Leahy, and Ronald Reid

Seasonal record: 7-1

The Brewster Boys JV football team had an incredible season, finishing with an outstanding 7-1 record. Led by sophomores Luke Cunningham, Aidan Bisignano, Paul Rienzi, Cameron LaMoreaux and Frank Tumminello, and freshman AJ Accurso, Mikey Subin, Adrian Martinez and Brody Snyder, the team showcased their talent and determination on the field. Their hard work and teamwork paid off, making Brewster JV a force to be reckoned with. The Brewster JV Football team also demonstrated excellent offense and defense throughout the season, running and passing the ball very well and allowing an impressive average of 8 points per game on defense. Their outstanding performance on both offense and defense truly defined their remarkable season.

Looking to future, the Brewster Boys JV football team hopes to repeat their success for many years to come.


SoccerBoys Varsity

Captain: Carter Dineen

Coach: Jim McKee

Seasonal record: 3-14

Their highlight of the year was beating John Jay Cross River to open up the season. The team put in a great performance to beat them 4-0, which allowed them to start off the season with high spirits. Looking to the future, they hope to build on lots of experience, and are looking forward to a great season next year.


SoccerBoys JV

Captains: Marvin Flores, Andy Sagastume, and Ben Unson

Coach: Dominique Corrao

Seasonal record: 2-8-1

There were many highlights for the team this season: Andy Sagastume scored 5 goals, Marvin Flores scored 4, the team won some games, and they improved over last year, because the JV team then only won one game. Some good things this season from the JV team was that everyone was friendly and set a good example when they were losing: when some put their heads down, other players encouraged them to keep going. Looking forward, they are looking for the athletic department to give the JV team more games because this season, they didn’t play all the games and only played half of all the teams. Another thing that we are looking forward to is to improve our skills and teamwork and win more games.


Soccer – Girls Varsity

Captains: Addison Crowley and Jordan Niles

Coaches: Michael Fratto and Kristen Ohberg

Seasonal record: 4-12

A seasonal highlight that impacted the girls was only losing to Somers with a score of 3-2. In the past the score difference has always been significant, usually with Brewster not scoring any goals. Knowing this game was going to be their last, they played their hearts out, with the first goal being scored by Ava Fagin with the assist by Mia Crivelli. When the second half came by, another goal was scored by Sienna Santiago, making the score 2-3. Despite the loss, they were all so proud of themselves for how amazing they played against the #1 team in the section. Tears were shed, hugs being given everywhere: it was a very emotional game for the girls.

In the next year, the girls expect to work hard over the summer, coming together as a team to create a new family with the upcoming girls from JV.


Soccer – Girls JV

Captains: Ava Chica and Paulieanna Peluso

Coaches: Brianna Thomas

Seasonal record: 0-15

Although it was a difficult season, Isabella Peleaze (starting goalie), pushed through and saved the team the average of 20 goals per game.  She went strong all season and pushed to the very end.  Even thought Isabella wasn’t a team captain, the captains and the rest of the team always treated her as if she was.  They cannot wait to continue playing with her! Looking to next year, the team wants to improve in skills and increase their positive attitudes.


Tennis – Girls Varsity

Captains: Claire Renault and Katie Tarantino

Coach: Robin McCollum

Claire, the team’s first singles player, won plenty of her matches with flying colors! The group also had many newcomers this year who put in hard work learning tennis for the first time. The members had their first team-win on their last game against Ossining, which was also on their senior night! Next year, the team hopes to see their new players continue to progress and get better at tennis to bring more wins to the team!


Volleyball – Girls Varsity

Captains: Taylor Dudones, Gabby Gileno, and Shay Rookwood

Coaches: Tom Fabiani, Marissa Tambini

Seasonal record: 11-8

Having a winning record throughout our entire season, they are a very strong team. During their first match against Yorktown at home, the team lost 3-0. Fighting back during their second match against them at their home gym on their senior night, the girls won 3-0. A strong middle hitter, Nora Keating slammed the ball down as well as used her ninja skills to earn the team points by being sneaky. Their starting sophomore setter, Avery Dudones, assisted them in their total points by giving their hitters beautiful sets to get a kill. For the upcoming years, the team has a really strong program ahead. The girls are extremely hard workers: they play all year round (club), and they put their time and effort into the program to make it what it is today. The seniors cannot wait to see what the future has in store for them!


Volleyball – Girls JV

Captains: Amya Aviles and Danna Hernandez

Coach: Maria Angulo

Seasonal record: 10-4

Highlights of the season for the team included Amirah’s graceful dives and

Audrey’s strong and powerful kills. Looking forward to next season, the team want to continue to have so much fun and be the best players they can be.


Swimming – Girls Varsity

Captains: Audrey Healy and Fionna O’Reilly

Coaches: Patty Kaufman and Emily Trupia

Seasonal record: 3-7

The girls participated in both Divisionals and Sectionals, placing top 5 or higher in multiple events. At divisionals, Madison Feller placed 3rd in the 50 free (at 27.50 seconds) and 2nd in the 100 free (at 1:00.62 seconds,), both of which are her season PR’s. Adeline Benvenuto placed 5th in the 100 backstroke (at 1:22.94 seconds). Roisin O’Reilly placed 3rd in the 200 free (at 2:53.52 seconds,) and 5th in the 500 free (at 7:29.64 seconds).  At the same meet, the team placed 5th in the medley relay and 3rd in the freestyle relay. Now that the season has concluded, the graduating seniors are looking forward to pursuing swimming in college. Roisin will step up as captain for next year’s team.
