Overview

Basketball - Girls 1st Team

Brooks is a member of the Independent School League (ISL), but also plays the region’s top independent schools outside its league schedule. A historically strong program, the team has won three New England Championships (most recently in 2006) and three ISL titles (most recently in 2004). The expectation each year is to vie for the top spot in the league, advancing to the New England Tournament. On this latter goal, the program boasts close to fifteen appearances in the class B tournament in the past two decades.

Built on the premises of strong work ethic, tenacious hustle, unselfish commitment to team and teammates, passion for competition and the pursuit of excellence, the program's values apply both on the court and off. The most successful players in the program have been multi-sport stars at Brooks, many of whom have gone on to play key roles in various sports at such colleges as Brown, Colby, Columbia, Radford, Harvard, Holy Cross, Penn, Stanford, North Carolina and Williams. A recent basketball alum even went on to win a gold medal (rowing) in the Olympics! We are proud of these players for their athletic accomplishments, but even more proud of their academic pursuits at Brooks and beyond.

We appreciate your interest in the girls basketball program and hope you’ll get to see the team in action. You’ll like the way we play!
