Maeve Stauff ’21
Boys Squash:
“Coming  off a record finish of nineteenth place nationally last year, this season has the potential to be the best in Hopkins squash history. With a top seven of all returning members, we have a strong team from top to bottom and are hoping to make a deep run in Division 1 Nationals and New Englands. Come support us at home and wear your affordably priced yellow Hopkins squash shirts.” - Burton Lyng-Olsen ’20

Boys Swimming and Diving: 
“Coming into this season, we lost some of our best swimmers. I’m excited about this season because we are changing up how we practice and are introducing new ways to train to improve new and returning swimmers. It’s always a great pleasure to see our team grow, and I hope we get closer as a team. Besides that, I always want everyone to have a great time.” - William Zhu ’20

Fencing: “A lot of new fencers have joined the team this season. Overall, we have a pretty big team this year featuring folks from all different levels. We’re looking forward to growing stronger with everyone in preparation for big meets!” - Liz Bamgboye ’20

Girls Squash: “We’re really excited for this upcoming season of squash. It’s definitely a rebuilding year and we’re going to have a strong season with new players.” - Chloe Sokol ’20

Girls Basketball: “Something that always makes me excited about the basketball season is that every girl playing is part of one big family. I see a court full of girls who are motivated, have so much potential, want to do well, and want to have fun. No matter the outcome this season, I know it is going to be an amazing season. I know all of us will fight for every point of every game.”- Casey Dies ’20
“I’m really excited for the season, we have a lot of new and returning people, so I think that it’s going to be a good season. We’re just looking to build off of the positives and improve from last season.” - Charlotte Yin ’20

Boys Indoor Track: “I think what makes the boys track team unique is our tight-knit running group. This season, we will particularly focus on team bonding and are excited to practice on the new Hopkins track!” - George Wang ’20

Ski Team: Ski team has it all this year: a young team of talented skiers, a great coaching staff, and an eager attitude to shred the gnar. All we need now is a few feet of snow at Mount Southington!” - Katherine Takoudes ’20
Boys Basketball: “I’m really excited for the season, we have a lot of returning seniors and juniors which will be very helpful for the new players. I’m hoping we can make, and go far in the playoffs. It’s Coach Errico and Anthony’s second year at Hopkins and they’ve unified the team with a new perspective.” -Michael Lau ’20

Girls Swimming and Diving: “This season is going to be so fun! The great thing about this year is that we only lost a few seniors last year, so the team is already really close. We do have really tough practices, but the meets and team dinners are going to be a blast!” - Rita Roberts ’20

Wrestling: “Hopkins wrestling is in for another successful season. Coming off a 17-4 record last year and sending six wrestlers to New England’s, we have the tools to improve on our great season last year. We have key returning and new wrestlers that have been working hard everyday, and with our unrivaled coaching staff, I have no doubt we will be a force to be reckoned with this year.” - Brandon Smith ’20
