Winter sports practices are underway for the Minutemen. Boys' and girls' swimming had their season opener last week, and the remaining winter sports are working hard to prepare for their own season openers. We talked to the head coaches to get an outlook for their upcoming season. See what some of our coaches had to say about their team below.
Fencing: "It is difficult for high school programs to field a top team over and over again year after year. It takes a team culture that is supportive and passionate for their sport. It is wonderful to see such a strong men's team for a third year that has hopes of another state championship. For our women's program the story is very similar. For a number of years now it has been tough to field a full women's team. But this year it is wonderful to see our experienced fencers coming together with newer fencers to support each other, making what could be one of the top teams in the state." - Coach B-Y
Swimming: "I'm really excited for the upcoming season. Not just because we will be swimming meets in person, but because I expect our boys and girls to have an outstanding year." - Coach Blomn
Girls' Basketball: "We have a young and eager team looking forward to competing at the highest level. We are leaning on our upperclassmen for continued leadership and are confident in their abilities to help mentor our younger players." - Coach Bona
