Starting practice early before spring vacation, the team quickly worked itself into top
shape under the iron dicipline of Coaches Mr. Richardson. Mr. Miller, and Mr. Gillespie.
The first meet with Ansonia at Ansonia was very close but went to the opposition who
won the final event. Although the meet was lost 54-50, newly elected captain Emil Usinger
set a new school record with the javelin hurling it over 174 feet. The next encounter on Pratt
Field was against Amity, but this time the score was different with the Hilltoppers coming
out on top 66-29. The captain distinguished himself by taking a second in the pole vault
which he had never tried before the day of the meet. lf his skill had been known earlier,
the first meet might have gone the other way.
With Captain Usinger, Thompson, and Malone in the field events and Schneider, Lee,
Parcinski, Sperry, and Sewall on the track, the prospects at press time seemed good. It was
hard to predict with some of the hardest meets to come. Trinity Pawling was a strong team
to say nothing of the other four-VVestminster, Canterbury, Avon, and Notre Dame, all met
before the season's end.

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.

Although five key players graduated in 1957, Hopkins still managed to field a strong
baseball nine in 1958. Captain jim DeLucia's team has thus far compiled a record of two wins
and two losses.
The season opened on a slightly sour note as Hopkins lost a heartbreaker 2-1 decision to
Notre Dame at the West Haven Municipal Stadium. Dick DiNicola was outstanding in defeat,
giving up only three hits. Hopkins scored in the second inning on singles by DiNicola and
Dave Branon and a Notre Dame error. The Green Nights won it in the sixth when Captain
Dick Miller singled home two runs after two were out.
Behind the sensational two hit pitching of Bob Kolb, Hopkins defeated Milford Prep 5-2
and evened its season's record. Hopkins scored a run in the first inning, and Milford tied
it in the second. Gene Kiley doubled in the fourth and scored on an error. Then Hopkins
clinched the game in the sixth as Bill Hildebrand doubled in a run and, Captain DeLucia
singled home two more. Milford Prep tallied once in the sixth to close out the scoring.
