Winter Sports Preview

Meghan MacDonald ’22, Log Staff Writer

While the frigid temperatures and short days can make the winter a gloomy time of year, the Fish Center is an energetic and exciting place to watch some great games this season. The winter varsity teams are jumping right into their seasons and are optimistic that there will be lots of victories in 2020.
 
Coming off of a 9-17-2 record last year and bringing in lots of young players, the boys’ hockey team is excited for what they will accomplish this season. While the quick pace of Prep Hockey may be difficult for new players to adjust to, co-captain Jake Cady ’20 believes that “after a few games under people’s belts, we’ll be very tough to play against.” Along with their regular-season games, the team competed in two tournaments over the break to warm up, the Avon Old Farms Tournament and the Joshua Weeks Tournament. Co-captain Connor Tobin ’20 said, “Doing well in those will set a good tone for the rest of the year.”
 
Also competing in the Travis Roy Arena, the girls’ hockey team is looking forward to another strong winter. Their 20-2-3 season ended last year after a 2-4 loss to Phillips Andover Academy in the quarterfinals of the NEPSAC playoffs, but the girls are back in action and off to a steady start. Assistant coach Mrs. Young said, “Our goals for the season are abundant. The big ones include winning the Taft Tournament, being the ISL champions, and winning New England.” With a lot of talented and hard-working players, their aspirations aren’t far out of reach.
 
The boys’ squash team is working towards a winning season and proving themselves on the court. Although he sees a lot of potential in this year’s team, captain Omar Kiwan ’20 said, “Everyone is expecting us to be bad after the #1 player in the US, Ali Hussein ’19, graduated.” The boys will face tough matches against Brooks, Phillips Andover, and Milton, but are determined to “upset a lot of teams and finish in a good spot in New Englands and Nationals.”
 
After a 5-12 season last year, the girls’ squash team has brought in lots of new players and focused on developing their young players. Captain Nina Sasakawa remarked on the positive atmosphere that has been created and how “every player is willing to get better,” which is a crucial factor to success.
 
Boys’ basketball is fighting for another winning season in the Stone Gym. Captain Isaiah Bird ’20 believes that “rebuilding strong chemistry after graduating five seniors” will be challenging, but the team is committed to working hard and reaching the point where they can “compete with any team in the NEPSAC.”
 
You can expect big things from the girls’ basketball team. After falling 59-70 to Worcester Academy in the NEPSAC Finals last year, Kylie Swider ’20 said that they’re back and looking to secure the championship trophy. According to Cat Barry ’20, “The ISL looks to be as strong as ever this year.” She adds that the team is “high energy and will be a lot of fun to watch on both ends of the floor.”
 
Last but not least, captain Chris Parker ’20 and the wrestling team are hoping to dominate in their matches and bring home lots of collective wins. He said, “The team this year is a young one, but the guys are tough and love being in the wrestling room.” He commends the excellent coaching staff and every player’s dedication. Altering a quote from the movie Dodgeball, he says, “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a shot.”
 
Although our teams are very talented, they are only as good as their fans; you can watch them in action on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Go Seawolves!!
