Wrestling And Boys Swimming Previews

It’s the second to last day of our winter sports previews as today we take a look at wrestling and boys swimming. Wrestling finished last year 1-11 but did put up strong showings in the postseason including the first girls state title in school history by Sophie Laing. Look for the team to make even bigger strides this season. Boys swimming finished last year at 5-5 and finished 17th at states. The boys always are in the picture for a league title and I see no reason why this year will be any different. Tomorrow we finish up with gymnastics!

Indoor Track Previews

As we’ve reached the middle of the week it’s time to unveil another winter sports preview as today we look at both indoor track teams. The boys team finished last year 4-1 and as state runners up. Given their recent history of success the boys should definitely be a top contender this season for a state title. The girls meanwhile finished a perfect 5-0, and captured the state crown a year ago and there is no reason to believe they won’t be favorites to repeat their title. Tomorrow I will preview wrestling and boys swimming!

Hockey Previews

We continue our 2019/20 winter sports previews today with a look at both hockey programs. The boys finished last year 12-8-2 and advanced to the D1 South quarterfinals. With a solid core returning this year look for the boys to compete for even higher aspirations in terms of both league and sectional play. The girls had a banner worthy season once again last year finishing 17-4-3 and capturing their second straight state title. With an overwhelming majority of their core returning the girls should be considered an overwhelming favorite for a third straight D2 crown. Tomorrow we will preview indoor track!

Basketball Previews

This week we roll out our 2019/20 winter sports season previews and we begin today by looking at both the boys and girls basketball teams. The boys finished last season 15-5 overall earning a sectional quarterfinal berth. The boys definitely will have the pieces this year to take another shot at both a conference title and a deep postseason run. The girls meanwhile finished last year 18-4 advancing all the way to the South semifinals. The girls have established a tradition of excellence over the years and I look for that continue into this new season. Tomorrow we will preview hockey!

Monday Poll

Happy Monday everyone! What better way to kick off a new week than with another edition of Monday Poll. This week’s question is…Which sport (both boys and girls teams) will have a better overall regular season win percentage basketball or hockey? Comment with your answers!
