Brett BenzioWe are also pleased to partner with New Hampton School head girls’ coach Brett Benzio, a former All-Conference player at Tulane University, assistant coach at Harvard and Vermont, and international pro.  Brett is an outstanding coach and teacher and is a great role model for aspiring young players.  A native of South Florida, Brett attended Tulane University on a full-athletic scholarship for basketball. During her four years at Tulane, Brett became the third basketball player in Tulane history (male or female) to score at least 1,000 points and pull down at least 1,000 rebounds in her career; she also set the all-time school record for defensive rebounds, while placing second in the record book for both total rebounds and blocked shots. Brett participated in one NCAA tournament and two WNIT tournaments during her time at Tulane. Upon graduating in 2012, she pursued a career as a professional basketball player in Europe; playing in both the Czech Republic and Germany. In 2014, Brett returned to the States and joined the Harvard University coaching staff, and most recently, she spent a year coaching at the University of Vermont before arriving at New Hampton School.
