Coach Dan Ragsdale reports that during the February 1 varsity basketball game against The Loyola School, Alex Liptak ’20 netted his 1,000th career point in the second half in front of the first and second grade Panther Game Day crowd. He is the fifth player in Browning’s history to reach this impressive milestone. Mr. Ragsdale noted, “Alex has been a starter for the varsity team since he was in eighth grade and has led the team in scoring, rebounding and steals for the last two seasons. Reaching this milestone is an incredible accomplishment, especially in light of all the other ways he contributes to the team. I think all the mini-Panthers in attendance will remember that thee-pointer for a long time.” Liptak currently averages 18 points, 10 rebounds and three steals per game. As a freshman in 2017, he was selected to the NYCAL First Team, a vote based on opposing coaches’ ballots.
Director of Athletics Andrew West ’92 added, “One thing most people don’t realize is that we play in a small league, where the coaches and players know one another’s teams so well. To still be able to score 1,000 points, when other teams ‘game-plan’ for you, let alone accomplish it in the middle of your sophomore year – wow! That’s really special!”
