January 7 to 13, 2019
Boarding students returned to campus on Monday evening, January 7, 2019 with classes resuming the following day. It was a fairly quiet week as students and teachers settled back into their daily routines at Hill. Fans cheered on the boys' varsity basketball and boys' and girls' squash teams during their home contests on Wednesday. On Friday evening, the cast and crew of "Shrek" were back in the CFTA rehearsing for the show, which will debut at the end of February.
On Saturday, the athletics complex on campus was bustling. We hosted 13 other schools for the Bissell '33 Wrestling Tournament, which brought many spectators to campus, including Hill wrestling alumni and their families. At the same time, the boys' and girls' swimming and diving team were competing in the Cunningham '56 Pool. Also on Saturday, several Hill students, faculty, and a parent volunteer worked on an ongoing home rehabilitation on Edgewood Street in Pottstown with Hobart's Run.
The Student Center was the place to be on Saturday night! Students packed the space to participate in the Super Smash Bros video game competition and cheer on the final players during the championship match.
