Hall of Fame

During the past twenty-five years, the Brimmer Athletic Department has grown significantly through both the addition of boys teams in the mid-1990s and new sports teams such as baseball, curling, and cross country in the early decades of this century. As a result of this growth the athletic program has found notable success at both the team and individual levels. Specifically, the School has won numerous league championships and bids to the New England Tournament, and a large number of graduates have gone on to play a sport in college. The School seeks to recognize those athletes who were very successful in the classroom, who performed at the highest level, who provided leadership to their teams, and who helped Brimmer succeed on field, course, and court. For this purpose the School has established the Brimmer and May Athletic Hall of Fame to honor its truly outstanding student athletes.

2017 Hall of Fame Inductee

Heather Gates' ‘13 athletic career began in middle school. Mr. Iuliano had the great pleasure of coaching her as she began her career as a member of the Sixth Grade Girl’s Basketball Team. One could easily see from the sideline even at that early age that she was coachable, skilled, dedicated, and competitive. She led that sixth grade team in scoring, was the primary ball handler, a tough defender, and a leader on the floor.
Truly, her athletic career at the school is one of the most accomplished in the School’s long history for women’s sports. Her individual and team accomplishments were many. Heather was a 3-season athlete for all 7 of her years in the Middle and Upper Schools. She was named Outstanding Athlete twice and Scholar Athlete five times in those seven years. She earned a place on the High Honor Roll for every grading period from sixth grade to graduation. She played 5 years on the Varsity Girls Soccer Team, earning the Coach’s Award once, and the Most Valuable Player Award 5 times. Heather played 5 years on the Varsity Girls Basketball Team, earning the Most Improved Player Award once, and the Most Valuable Player Award 4 times. She played 4 years on the Varsity Softball Team, earning the Coach’s Award twice and the Most Valuable Player Award 3 times. Heather was named to All-League Teams nine times in her athletic career: 4 in soccer, 3 in basketball, and 2 in softball. She was named League MVP once in basketball and once in softball. She captained the Varsity Soccer Team for 1 year, the Varsity Basketball Team for 2 years, and the Varsity Softball Team for 3 years.
By the numbers, an athlete cannot do much more than that for her team and for her School. She brought home at least one league championship trophy in each of the three sports she played as well as one New England Championship banner. She represented the School in exemplary fashion as a student and as an athlete. We are proud of her accomplishments as an athlete and know that she has set a very high bar for both individual and team achievement for those athletes who follow her. It is my pleasure to welcome Heather Gates, Class of 2013, as the 14th member of the Brimmer and May School Athletic Hall of Fame.

2014 Hall of Fame Inductees

Stephen Mulloy '11 committed himself fully to his play in soccer, basketball, and lacrosse games, and he had the ability to raise his level of play as the game situation dictates; this is an impressive attribute and one which all athletes aspire to and a select few possess. Stephen wore a Brimmer and May uniform for what seems like a lifetime. He was a familiar face to opposing coaches and foes, but it was with apprehension they greeted him and prepared to face his team. Not one to allow himself to settle for being average, he pushed himself to achieve at the highest possible level. Stephen served each team he played on with incredible passion, determination, and an unflagging will to win.

On the soccer field, he was the starting sweeper, a position that requires a tenacious demeanor, and he never failed to put forth his best effort. Over the course of the soccer seasons, he made more than a few heroic plays that spared the Gators from sure defeat. His drive kept the Gators motivated and competitive on a daily basis. In his senior year, as captain of the soccer team, he was a leader from his midfield position and topped the team in scoring, recording 50% of the total goals scored.       
As a member of the Varsity Boys' Basketball team, his team spirit and dedication to the program were vital to the teamís championship run.Again as captain, he started every game and led the team in several statistical categories including scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals. He was not only the teamís “go-to” player, but the teamís “do everything” player.This ability was evident when he helped his team overcome a halftime deficit and build a 10-point lead to wing the MBIL championship for the School.        
Finally, as a freshman "rookie" on a varsity team, he had to prove himself to the veterans and withstand a few, good-natured, jokes in the meantime. He was quick to earn the respect of his teammates by demonstrating an excellent work ethic unmatched in a three-season athlete and by not taking himself too seriously. One of his lacrosse coaches described him as an exceptional athlete with an unrelenting drive to succeed. He was one of the most experienced members of the lacrosse team and served as a role model for the team. He proved to be a fast and strongplayer able to run by defenders and was one of the teamís top scorers. Notably, he was well respected by his teammates for his sense of fair play, commitment to his team, and dedication to working hard to contribute positively to his teamís overall success. He played the game aggressively, but never with aggression. 

Margaret Fawcett '09 was a motivated athlete with an unlimited source of energy. She was unquestionably one of the top athletes in the School. Aggressive and intense, she was an intelligent leader in whatever she was doing, and her teammates respected her for the way in which she handled herself both in games and at practices. When the game was one the line, coaches wanted her on the field or court.

She had a competitive drive that few athletes could rival. She unfailingly gave everything she had in every game she played, sometimes ending up on the sidelined with exhaustion at the end of the contest. Some very wise person once said, “Our greatest strengths are our greatest weaknesses.” This phrase fits Margaret Fawcett. As a Brimmer and May athlete, her competitive fire and sheer athleticism, produced astounding results on our fields and courts. Whether throwing herself in front of thunderous penalty kicks from 12 yards out in the soccer goal, pushing herself through the final minutes of fast break/full court press basketball, or going horizontal to snare line drives back through the pitcherís mound, she sacrificed herself for the team. Other coaches were forced to change their game plans to work around her. Her efforts came without a hint of selfishness. Because she was the consummate team player, her exploits always come with the interests of the team in mind. It is rare, wonderful, and inspirational to watch an athlete so gifted, so driven, and so selfless all in one package. Still, it is the sheer joy she got out of playing sports that is most noticeable; she plays because she has fun, and her smile and laughter on the field and in team huddles were wonderfully infectious. She combined everything a coach could ask for in a player.

Leading by word and deed, she was a key player on four league title winning teams in her high school career, and in her senior year she was a captain and a star on the I.G.C. soccer, basketball, and softball championship squads; hers is a resume unparalleled in school history.

Kerrie Bourque ’10 won two Independent Girls Conference (IGC) Championships in both soccer and basketball. As a result of her excellent play, she was named one of her team’s Most Valuable Players in soccer, where she started as a defender in every game of her two-year career. She was named to the All-IGC Second Team in soccer as well. But it was on the basketball court that this player truly shone . . . . She rewrote the record book, setting new Brimmer and May girls’ standards in points in a game, points in a season, points in a career, 3-pointers in a game, 3-pointers in a season, and 3-pointers in a career. She scored 1,048 points in just two seasons at Brimmer and May, becoming the first female to ever do so and the first athlete— male or female—to reach the 1,000-point plateau so quickly.

She was a two-time Boston Globe Player of the Week, two-time First Team All-IGC, and two-time NEPSAC (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council) All-Star, and was also an IGC Most Valuable Player.

Derek Retos ’10 was captain of the Brimmer and May Varsity Basketball team, and was ranked first in many statistical categories. His generosity and fairness in interacting with both teammates and opponents was only exceeded by his scoring average. In even the toughest, most important, and most pressure-filled games, he demonstrated the level of sportsmanship befitting Brimmer and May’s Core Values. Few players have made as great an impact on the Brimmer and May Boys’ Basketball program as Derek did during his career. A twotime captain, he is Brimmer and May’s all-time leading scorer with 1,763 points. He currently holds the record for most games started, with more than 125, games won with 99, and points in a game with 43. A member of the Varsity squad as an eighth grader, Derek became the youngest player in School history to reach the 1,000-point plateau as a sophomore. He was named the Brimmer and May Scholar-Athlete of the Year as a freshman and was also named his team’s Most Improved Player and Most Valuable Player. In addition, early in his playing career, Derek was selected to the MBIL (Massachusetts Bay Independent League) All-League First Team and to the NEPSAC (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council) Second Team. In his senior season, Derek was named the Most Valuable Player in the St. Sebastian’s Basketball Tournament and was named to the St. Andrew’s Basketball Tournament All-Tournament Team. Throughout his career, he always put his team above himself. His contributions to the Brimmer and May Athletic Program are undeniable. . . .
Derek attends Brandeis University and is majoring in business with a minor in economics and legal studies. At Brandeis, Derek has served as basketball team captain since his sophomore year. He has scored over 600 points, been named ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) Player of the Week, and going into his senior year, he is currently in the top three on Brandeis’ career 3-pointer list with 112.

She was the first eighth grader to play varsity sports. On the soccer field she played right wing, she played off guard in basketball, and she placed center in lacrosse. Eileen would have been a three-season athlete all five years at Brimmer and May if not for an injury that did not allow her to play basketball one season.
