It’s that time of year again when the slopes start to shred. The 2014-15 HBHS ski racing team is about to take to new heights, and are very confident in their upcoming performances.

The ski racing team has a very talented roster this year. Two of these racers, Anthony Tamposi, ‘17, and Trevor Cooke,‘16, are hoping for their very best this season and aiming for higher goals. When asked who to watch for, Tamposi said, “Definitely me because I’m a rising skier with great potential and great style with the ski racing. You also gotta look out for Erowynn Maul-Latham and Cam Tulley. We’ll be shredding up the course this year. We’re pretty good, probably the best on this team. We’ll show you what’s up.”

Tamposi expressed confidence in this year’s coaches, Coach Cooke and Coach Reed, describing them as  “really nice guys, understanding”  adding that the coaches “always understand if you need to take practice off for stuff like work or anything important.”

Junior Trevor Cooke, a dedicated and talented ski racer whose family has been very  involved with the team beginning with brother Evan Cooke ‘13, expressed similar confidence. Last year, Cooke was the only ski team member to make it to regionals. His goal for this year is to finish first in the Giant Slalom.

“I expect decency and great fun and memories…wind, snow, tears, and sweat,” concluded Tamposi about this upcoming season.
