Westminster School 2019-20 Season Preview
This year, the Westminster School basketball team is looking to have an impact in the New England Prep School Athletic Council season and post-season tournament. Most of the prep teams in Westminster’s NEPSAC Class B will again be loaded with college-bound players and very competitive talent. However, Westminster coach, David Pringle is very bullish on his squad’s chances, “In my opinion, I believe this will be my most talented team in the last five seasons.”
Captain, Chris Robinson will lead the team from the guard position. The D1 bound guard has been a pivotal part of the program for the last three years. “I’m counting on Chris to be a leader and also one of the best guards in all of NEPSAC. Chris is on his way to scoring two thousand career points.” per Pringle.
Teddy Mangiarotti, the Long Island native, will be a nice addition to the team and the league. “Teddy is a tough guard who can get to the basket and he has unlimited range beyond the three point line. He will fit into the schemes of things nicely.”
On the wing, Gabe Charleston is an ultra athletic specimen. “Gabe will easily be one of the better athletes in all of NEPSAC. Not only is he athletic but he’s also becoming a much better shooter from midrange and beyond the arc.” according to his coach.
Post graduate, Rafa Charfole is a 6’7” stretch forward that can get it done, inside and out. The talented import from Spain has been in the gym everyday since he’s arrived on campus. Coach Pringle is starting to see Charfole’s college recruitment grow since he arrived in the United States.
Senior Captain, Jack Devlin is a solid piece of the team. “He’s been a great “energy guy” over the last several years. Jack loves to compete and he works hard at all times. It’s always great to have player on your team that cares about the little things! Lastly, Jack will play lacrosse at Weselyan University next year.
This group and the other role guys should gel together nicely. We hope to make a deep run into the Class B playoffs in NEPSAC in March.”
During the regular season, Westminster will hone their game in the very deep and very challenging Founder’s League, where most of their opponents are larger, NEPSAC Class A school teams, including three of the Elite 8 from last year’s New England Class A Championships.
