The Hill School- The Family Boarding School

Rams of the Week: October 29 - November 4, 2018

Javon Clements '19 (Stroudsburg, Pa.) and Maurice Mazzccua ’19 (Philadelphia, Pa.) Varsity Football
From day one of camp, Javon took control of the offensive huddle as our quarterback. His leadership, confidence, and consistency inspired his teammates; coaches trusted him because of his reliability and heady play; and his toughness and durability impressed all who support Hill Football. In the team's 33-23 win against Lawrenceville, Javon rushed for a touchdown on a QB keeper, then connected with Gernard Finney '20 on a 21-yd TD pass to put Hill up 20-15 in the 4th quarter.

Maurice was a playmaker on offense all season. Every time he touches the football, he is a legitimate scoring threat. With just over three minutes left in the first half against Lawrenceville, Maurice rushed for 45 yards and a touchdown to give Hill a much-needed offensive boost. Then, Maurice found paydirt on a run to the defense's weak side. Later in the game, with the outcome still in doubt as L’ville had cut the lead to 26-23, Maurice ran 51 yards on first down to make it a 2-score game with 1:50 left on the clock.

Audrey Covaleski ’19 (Glenmoore, Pa.) and Alex Gulati ’19 (Gilbertsville, Pa.) JV Field Hockey
Audrey and Alex served as our captains for JV field hockey this fall, and we coaches could not have asked for a better pair to lead the team. They came to practice every day ready to work hard and motivate the team to do the same. At the start of the season they worked with the girls who were new to field hockey and helped teach them the necessary skills to start playing. Audrey and Alex encouraged the team to make sure they held each other accountable by lifting one another up, not bringing one another down. Their leadership, guidance, and sportsmanship will be missed by the team next year.

Sophie Goldberg ’19 (Newtown, Pa.) Varsity field hockey
Sophie had never played field hockey before this year, but decided to try out for the team because she has always wanted to try field hockey and she wanted to be a part of the HFHF tradition. Every day she puts in maximum effort and has fun doing it – she would constantly exclaim “I am having so much fun!” throughout the season. Sophie provides a positive, selfless presence and demonstrates to her teammates how to work hard no matter what and not to expect anything in return. Her hard work paid off when she played all 60 minutes of our PAISAA quarterfinal win over Agnes Irwin. She has been an absolute pleasure to coach – she’s a phenomenal kid with a huge heart.

Zoya Holin ’21 (Richboro, Pa.) JV Girls’ Tennis
Zoya has played excellent tennis this past season, often playing up when Varsity played a school who had a large V lineup. She is very coachable and progressed so well that she won the JV Tennis Championship. We are incredibly proud of her achievement and trust that she will continue to be such a positive presence on the court!

Trent Lopata ’19 (Boyertown, Pa.) Boys’ Cross Country
Co-captain Trent Lopata ’19 was returning from injury this fall intent on having a strong season and helping to lead the team. He worked hard from preseason forward, but didn’t always have the results he’d hoped for, but kept his attitude positive. Trent had his two best races of the season when it counted, placing 5th on the team at the MAPL championship, and 6th on the team again Lawrenceville. It was this last cross country race of his Hill career that proved to be the differentiator. In cross country, you determine the score by adding up the places of your top 5 runners. By being Hill’s 6th man, and finishing ahead of Lville’s 5th runner, Trent added one point to the opponent’s score, and when it was all tabulated, the huge favorite (Lville) and the big underdog (Hill) came down to a 28 to 28 tie. In cross country, the tiebreaker is the team that has the better 6th man. That was Trent, vaulting Hill to the unexpected victory. What a great way to end a season and a career.
