    • Varsity Golf Captains: Max Wile ’19, Cyrus Chemery ’21 “This year we have a fairly young but promising group of players, and I think that with hard work, we can establish a good position for ourselves among the schools that we compete with. Only two of our players are above sophomore year but we have many talented individuals only just joining the team who will have the opportunity prove their mettle in the coming season.” -Chemery

    • Girls Varsity Water Polo Captains: Paige DeVoe ’19, Katie Broun ’19, Mackenzie Peters ’20 “We have a lot of new potential this week and are very excited for a spirited season of rebuilding. More importantly, we are looking forward to playing the game we love.” -DeVoe

We are facing a few tough teams this season like St. Lukes and Suffield, and we hope to make it to the FAA Championship once more this season and bring home the win!”–Chung

    • Girls Varsity Track Captains: Elise Aslanian ’19, Maliya Ellis ’19, Inge Hughes ’19 “We are so excited to welcome new talent to the team and continue to foster the impeccable talent of our returning athletes.

As long as we stay healthy and smart, you will enjoy TRACKING our progress this year.” –Christie

    • Girls Varsity Crew Captains: Gigi Fulginiti ’19, Casey Dies ’20 “This year we’re hoping to do more to speed up the learning process for novices, so we can all spend more time getting ready for races.

Te team is looking pretty big, so I hope we can all really bond over team dinners, Wet Wednesdays, and Nutella this season!” –Fulginiti

    • Boys Varsity Crew Captains: Zubin Kenkare ’19, Ben Washburne ’19 “The boys team is in position to be the best crew team in Hopkins history.
