The 1958 natators marked a major turning point in the fortunes of Hopkins swimming.
Notwithstanding such serious detriments as the lack of a pool, a diver, sufficient practice time,
and depth, the team turned in a creditable six and six record, a marked improvement over
recent years. There was much fine talent exhibited by such swimmers as Captain Dave Lay,
and Form V stalwarts Pat Thompson, Van McClees, jim McKeon, and Truman Sherk.
ln addition, Fourth Formers Clark and Lce, and Third F ormers Creen and Kittrcdge
indicated unusual ability and potential.
Beginning well, with the defeat of Amity, a near victory over VVL-stminster gave
evidence of the swimmers' newfound ability. Thus encouraged, Hopkins defeated Cheshire,
although the latter posessed an excellent Hungarian athlete. Sound defeats were then inflicted
by Stratford, and by the always powerful Peekskill Military Academy. A surprising, but well
deserved victory over Trinity Pawling, and the defeat of Wilbur Cross were followed by a
narrow loss to Avon. Victories over Hamden and Suffield ensued, but, as was expected, the
Yale Freshmen and Canterbury proved to be too strong. As always, fine spirit and determination
were in evidence.
All in all, the season was a success, and with numerous returning lettermen there is
good cause to expect a winning slate under Captain-elect Pat Thompson and coach Burt Erich

VVon 5 - Lost 2
Although not undefeated as in previous years, the fencing team enjoyed another
very successful season. One trouble always encountered by the fencers is the lack of opponents.
The result is that college teams must be faced in order to have a worth while season. This
obstacle was quickly overcome under the leadership of Coach "Papa" Grasson and Captain
The first match, and first victory, of the year occurred against the Yale F rosh at Yale
by a score of 18 to 9. The following meet was at home, a foil match against St. Peters. XVe
beat them 6-3. A temporary setback took place with the loss to the Trinity Fencing Club at
Trinity Fencing Club at Trinity 15-12. In a return match with St. Peter's we lost by a
score of 5-4.
The fencing team returned to its winning ways over the remainder of the season. They
first defeated Cheshire by the score of 19-8. The Harvard Frosh succumbed to Hopkins
18-9. The last meet of the year was against the Yale Frosh. We ended the season with a 16-11
Top fencers of the foil team were Steve Sewall, Douglas Sucher, and Henry Allen.
The epee team consisted of Captain Bob Mignone, john Schneider, and Pete Fielding. On
the sabre team were George DiCenzo, james DeLucia, Bruce Harding, and Henry Ross.
If the large gap in the sabre division can be filled, chances look good for next year's
team with Steve Sewall as Captain. All of the foil squad will be returning plus Pete Fielding,
of the epee, as well as other able fencers who were not on the team this year.

The second year of hockey at Hopkins was plagued by mild weather. The ice didn't
freeze until late in the season so that the team could only hold a dozen practice sessions
before its first game. The contests with Trinity Pawling, South Kent, Suffield, and Canterbury,
had to be canceled due to rain. Despite these handicaps the team, through hard practice
at Pawlsorfs skating rink in Woodbridge, whipped itself into a smoothly functioning organization.
In the opening encounter, the sextet showed the drive and spirit that carried them
to a successful record by downing the Loomis I. V. 6 to 2. The Gunnery game, held on poor
ice, was won after a hard battle 4 to 2. Goalie Bill Brucksh played an outstanding game
making 28 saves. Hopkins next defeated the Choate I. V. 6 to 3 with Hildebrand scoring
three and Workman two. In the Taft I. V. game the team played without the services of their
injured Captain Gordon Daniell, This hard fought game was won by the Hilltoppers 2 to 1.
In the only home game of the season Hackley was completely humbled by the score of
16 to 0.
The high scoring first line was composed of wings Haeseler, Pouzzner, and Workman,
and center Hildebrand. The defense which allowed an average of only 1.6 goals per game
centered around goalie Brucksch who was helped greatly by defensemen Daniell, and
Nickerson. Next year's team will be led by captain elect Bill Hildebrand who topped the
sextet in scoring with 16 goals.
