  • Basketball Women's-Varsity

    2017 - 2018
    Head Coach: Brett Benzio

    The New Hampton Women’s Basketball team is looking to continue building off of its successful 2016-2017 campaign this season. The Huskies finished off a strong year facing off against Nobles in the Class AA finals match up. Class AA, or the ‘superclass’ as it was dubbed during its inaugural year, included only the season’s top 4 ranked teams in all of the NEPSAC – Tabor, Worcester, Nobles, and New Hampton. Although the Huskies eventually fell to their opponent in the championship game, the season left the returning Huskies more dedicated and hungry to improve. With only four players returning, the Huskies will look very different than they did during their championship run last season, but the team will remain focused on developing all-around, dedicated and disciplined student-athletes.
     
    The New Hampton School Women’s Basketball program is devoted to developing individual and positional skills through personalized coaching, with a strong emphasis on the mental side of the game. Players are given opportunities that help develop the concept of teamwork and leadership through game-time situations and competitive drills. Benzio, who has previously coached at both Harvard and the University of Vermont, brings an energy and coaching style that focuses on fundamentals, discipline, and positive team culture. Joining Benzio on the sideline is the returning Assistant Coach from the 2015-2017 seasons, Kayla DiBari ‘08.
     
    For the 2017-2018 season, New Hampton will be returning a core group of athletes. Eva Hodgson ’18 (committed to William & Mary) and fellow senior Ronja Orpo ’18 will lead the team through their experience, strong work ethics, and mentorship. The final two returners are local student-athletes – Amelia Clairmont ’19 and Maddie Kilfoyle ’20. Clairmont ’19 saw significant playing time last season and will be a strong additional scoring presence in the back court. Kilfoyle ‘20 will add depth at the point guard position.
     
    New Hampton is extremely excited about the future contributions from six of the team’s newer members. Amanda DeAngelis ’20 joins the squad from Londonderry, NH and will play as a swing four player. Her ability to score at all three levels will make her a significant threat. Sydney Noyes ’19 will contribute as the team’s primary post and will be a significant rebounder and defender for the Huskies. An incoming freshman duo, Lexi Kesselring ’21 and Seraphina Hodgson ’21 will see significant minutes in their debut season with the Huskies. The final additions to the squad will be Maryellen Leach ’19 in the front court and Hannah Hibbert ’20 in the back court. Both will carry over interdisciplinary skills to contribute this upcoming season.
