While it was enduring a very difficult schedule, The Hun School ice hockey team’s focus wasn’t as much on the scoreboard as it was the future. “The effort has always been there all season,” said Hun coach Ian McNally. “They showed up every day no matter what the previous result was with a clean slate. We were playing for February and now here it is and it’s paying off.”
Maddie Petty '18 can’t help but feel a little bit like a protective mother each day at Hun School swim practice. “I think part of it is that even though I am a junior, I had to step into a role of being more of the big sister because we have so many freshmen,” said Petty, who is in her third year with the swim team and one of only eight non-freshmen on the 23 swimmer Raiders’ roster.
“It’s a long, long journey eight years in the making,” said Nick Williams '09. “But it’s pretty cool to reach the pinnacle of professional sports. People might have thought I was a little crazy (for thinking I could do this), but actually, Hun was a super supportive school. At a very young age, I always had a vision for myself and worked towards it and made my decisions in order with one day trying to become an NFL player.”
