Fall Sports on The Hill

Girls’ Soccer
Captains: Emma Lipman ’19, Zoe Kim ’20, Lilly Fagan ’20
“We came into this season with the goal of building from where we left off last season. Emma, Lilly and I are very happy with the great dynamic of the team and we are excited to play with such a great group of girls this season.” - Kim

Boys’ Water Polo
Captains: Ben Washburne ’19, Zubin Kenkare ’19, Brian Seiter ’19
“[The] team is awesome. We’ve got some great players. It’s gonna be a great championship run.” - Noah Schmeisser ’19

Captains: Owen Sherman ’19, Doug Guilford ’19, Tyler Cipriano ’19
“What I love about football is it’s a place where I can truly just be primordial. It’s an arena where any anger, rage, or negative emotion I have felt throughout the day can be utilized in a positive way. Hopkins Football qualified for the Bowl Championship in our new league, and we are looking to prepare to play smart, fast, and aggressive as we have a home game for the first round of playoffs.” - Sherman

Boys’ Cross Country
Captains: Nic Burtson ’20, Michael Christie ’19, Connor Hartigan ’19
“This year our team has been so strong because of the hard working atmosphere that our runners of all experience levels have been building. For the rest of the season we plan on finishing the regular season’s undefeated record in FAAs, and then to taper for a top 3 finish at New England’s.” - Burtson

Girls’ Cross Country
Captains: Maliya Ellis ’19, Madeleine Walker ’19
“The cross country season has always been my favorite season, for all 5 years that I’ve been on it, and this year is no exception. We run fast, we kick [butt], and then we go home and do homework. Our girls are looking extra strong this year, which is why I think we have a good chance at winning FAA championships.” - Walker

Boys Soccer
Captains: Bruno Moscarini ’19, Ethan Pritchard ‘19
“I love the team aspect of soccer. Fighting and improving with my teammates is what has brought me the greatest satisfaction on the field. For the rest of the season, we have the goals of winning the FAA regular season and postseason. I am confident we will be able to do both as a team.” -Moscarini

Field Hockey
Captains: Naomi Tomlin ’19, Kenly Burton ’19, Sara Chung ’19
“We’ve grown a lot as a team this season. We had an amazing game to kick-off homecoming with a win against our rival Hamden Hall. Naomi, Kenly, and I are very proud of how far we have come since preseason, and I am excited to finish the season.” -Chung

Girls’ Volleyball
Captains: Elise Aslanian ’19, Saloni Jain ’19
“Volleyball is an extremely rewarding sport. While team dynamic is essential to the game, the crucial moment before you serve, set, or spike is what makes it an intense sport. We are working to improve our fundamental skills and refine our offense and defense. The season is going great so far, and we’re really optimistic that we’ll finish it strong.” - Jain & Aslanian
