The BCDS Athletic Department is proud to announce that Peter Brooks, Sarah Bormel and Liz Skinner were voted as the 2010 EIL Boys and Girls EIL (Eastern Independent League) Lacrosse Coaches of the Year.
Mr. Brooks, a veteran coach (this was his 10th season) and visual arts department chair at Beaver, led the boy’s varsity team to their first appearance in the New England Small School Boys Lacrosse Tournament and finished the regular season with a five-game winning streak and an overall 7-7 record.
“What a nice honor to cap such a successful season. Of course, I have to thank my assistant coaches Jeff Anderson, Andy Simon and Larry McKinney ’90 for all of their hard work and dedication to the team! Our working dynamic as a coaching staff has truly been wonderful and our collaborative effort has
certainly paid off,” said Coach Brooks.
The girls’ varsity team completed one of their most successful seasons in recent years. Their 4-6-1 record included a three-game winning streak and a five-game unbeaten run. Associate head coach Sarah Bormel, in her second year of coaching at Beaver, played Division I lacrosse for Boston University and helped to start a club lacrosse team when she was in college.
Liz Skinner, the other girls’ associate head coach, played varsity lacrosse for four years at St. Lawrence University. Team captain as a senior, she led her team to the Liberty League Championship Tournament and was a member of the Liberty League and Intercollegiate Womens’ Lacrosse Coaches Association academic honor rolls.
“We are proud of the seasons both lacrosse teams completed this spring,” said BCDS Director of Athletics Sherry Levin. “The Coach of the Year awards, voted on by the EIL coaches, are a testament to the hard work of the coaching staff as well as the commitment of the players to improve. We look to continued success in the future.”
