We know how busy the school year is and we know how difficult it is to stay up to date with your favorite Hawken sports teams – but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. For the remainder of the year, every Monday The Affirmative No will post sports scores, highlights, and accomplishments to our online paper. Even better, these updates will be written by members of the athletic teams themselves, thus you will get the inside scoop from all of Hawken’s Varsity Teams. Go Hawks!
Monday, September 28th
Boys Soccer by Bjoern Kluwe. The Hawks had another up and down week. Monday started off with a hotly contested match against West Geauga. Charlie Ross opened the scoring in the second minute off of Aidan Bobrow’s low cross. West G quickly leveled a couple minutes later. With five minutes to go, the score was tied 2 to 2. Unfortunately, West g was able to sneak one in during the dying moments of the game. On Friday, the Hawks faced D1 powerhouse Shaker Heights. The odds seemed stacked against the Hawks. However, the staunch defense from Tommy Dell, Anton Salem, Devlin Bleu, and Eric Oyen, the Hawks kept a clean sheet. The game ended a 0-0 tie that was suspenseful until the very end.
Girls Soccer by Hannah Aliazzi. The girls varsity team had a great week, improving to 8-3 for the season! Our team continues to practice hard, with playoffs on the horizon.
Football by Jacob Cohen. Strong defensive play led the Hawks to a 28-6 win at Richmond Heights Friday night. The team was led by two way lineman Jack Green who was in on four sacks, as well as the defensive backs who intercepted two Spartans passes. Cam Mazzone and Alex Friedman led the offense, each with two touchdowns. The Hawks return home Friday night to take on the Berkshire Badgers in a huge conference matchup.
Field Hockey by Julia Hillenbrand. The field hockey team is 4-1-4 on the season. We were extremely proud of a 5-5 tie against Western Reserve Academy; Elizabeth Blossom played amazing, scoring three goals.
Boys Golf by Devesh Modi. The boys gold team last week went out to Quail Hallow Golf course and took third in the sectional. Our performance in at Quail advances us to sectionals, which will take place this upcoming Tuesday. Players advancing to districts include myself (Devesh Modi), Jack Bonnes, Jack Gole, Scott hill, and Patrick Nestor
Girls Tennis by Nayana Ravishankar. Last week we played Green and Hudson, which are two really good teams, and we had some really good matches against them. This week we’re starting sectionals on Thursday at the Hawken Courts. Stephanie Shulman is the 2nd seed for singles and Natalie Cohen and myself (Nayana Ravishankar) are the 3rd seed for doubles. I think it should be a good day of tennis. Please come out to watch!
