Brewer Athletic Director David Utterback announced on Friday, April 15th that Old Town native, Chad LaBree has been chosen to lead the Brewer High School Girls Basketball program beginning with the 2022 winter season. LaBree, a 1994 graduate of Old Town High School, is currently working as Global Director of Customer Success / Director of Sales Enablement for Carbyne 9-1-1.

Chad was a Freshman and JV boys Basketball coach at John Bapst Memorial High School in Bangor before serving as JV Girls head coach as well as the JV Softball coach in Brewer during the 2017-2018 school year. His elevated work duties took him out of coaching for a few years until he was more recently able to return to the sidelines.

It was during that stint in Brewer that Athletic Administrator David Utterback knew Chad would make a great head coach. "Coach LaBree was highly regarded by the girls who played for him in both basketball and softball during the one year he was with us. Chad approaches everything with the utmost professionalism and enthusiasm. He treats his players with respect and dignity and is always well prepared. Our committee felt Chad was the right person to take over our program and lead us into the future."

LaBree takes over the program from Chris Horr, who stepped away from the sidelines following the most recent season after 8 years of leading girls basketball in Brewer, and more than a decade of involvement overall at his alma mater.

LaBree will begin his time with the girls in the voluntary summer workout program once school ends in June and be ready for preseason which begins in November of 2022. "
