As everyone enjoys their long Thanksgiving break with family, food, and festivities, many Hingham High students are also preparing for their upcoming winter sports season. The dreaded week of tryouts has emerged. Hockey and basketball for the boys’ and girls’ teams have all begun their seasons this week. 

Girls and boys basketball is a highly competitive and enjoyable sport for all to watch. In the 2022-2023 season, the girls had a 10-11 record while the boys team had an 11-12 record. As this new season approaches, HHS has high hopes for these teams and welcomes their new players and captains. Another major sport in the winter is boys and girls hockey. The Pilgrim Arena has quite a small student section, but that does not stop students from participating in watching these amazing teams. Last year, the Harbormen Hockey team had an amazing 19-4 team status and is ready for another great season. Hingham has a talent for hockey because the Harborwomen Hockey team also had an astounding 16-6 record in the 2022-2023 season.

As the week of tryouts closes, many new students have made varsity teams. A big congratulations to Joanna Estes, Kate McBride, Lila Sweeney, Tatum Lane, Kate Hall, Eileen Lowther, Kate Schulte, and Sophie McDougall for making the varsity girls basketball team! As well as Reagan Leiphart, Callie Crean, Hannah Lasch, Shea Richardson, and many more for making the varsity Harborwomen Hockey Team. 

Although tryouts are a difficult time of the season, they help the players mentally and physically prepare for the season ahead. Freshman Callie Crean who just this past week underwent the tryout process stated, “Tryouts are an exciting and stressful process, but I look forward to the upcoming season,”. 

Also a big congratulations to those who make varsity boys hockey and boys basketball as those lists have not yet been released. It is a high honor to be put on a varsity team and help represent Hingham High School, however, it is also a great opportunity and experience to play on a JV or Freshman team. One can learn and grow to become the best possible player on all teams.

Whitney Mara, a proud Hingham High School student, is excited to watch all the fun HHS winter sports games as a part of the student section this year. She exclaimed, “I’m very excited to watch games and support my town. I get to watch my friends play their sports. The hockey games are also a highlight for the winter sports season!”. Many HHS students are excited for the up and upcoming 2023-2024 winter sports season and have high hopes for the season up ahead.
