To start off a new 2010-11 season of basketball here at Hopkins Academy, we have a different coaching staff. Leading the boy’s varsity is returning coach Tim Mayo. This will be his second season coaching here at Hopkins Academy. This year’s roster for the team consists of two seniors (Paul Wanczyk and Eric Croft), four juniors (Andrew Bemben, Chris Koch, Adam Daniere, and Robby Cooke), and four sophomores (Satchel Teixeira, Tim Knightly, Ethan Wenner, and Denzel Colemen).With a relatively young team, they have a total of five returning varsity players: two seniors, two juniors, and one sophomore. Teixeira says, “We lost a lot of valuable players last year and we have a lot of work to do this year. Hopefully, we will make tournament.”
The Hawks girls varsity have a new coach, Fred Ciaglo. Ciaglo, who is new to the girls but not to Hopkins, will be filling in as head varsity girls coach. Freddy has coached the varsity boys basketball team from 1988 to 1992 and again from 2001 to 2009. The team is starting the season with 5 returning varsity players (two seniors, one junior, one sophomore, and one freshmen). The roster consists of three seniors (Monica Czerwinski, Kezi Constant, and Kasia Szymborn), four juniors (Monica Waskiewicz, Emma Konieczny, Libby Kielb, and Kelsey Yusko), one sophomore (Olivia Mathieu), and two eight graders (Kate and Mackenzie Sullivan).
