Hershey Winter Sports Season has mixed results

Sam Allery and Evan Spinney

Boys Basketball: record 9-13

Coming off a fifth place finish in Districts for the 2017-18 season, the boys basketball team didn’t perform as well as they had hoped. While the beginning of the season was promising for the Trojans (the team was at .500 entering mid-January), they went on to lose 7 of 9 to close out the month and ended the year at 9-13.

Girls Basketball: record 9-13

Like the boys team, the Hershey girls basketball team had more success in their 2017-18 season than this winter. While the girls started off strong with a win of the “Tip-Off Tournament” in early December, this was followed by three straight losses. They failed to finish the season with a winning record.

Girls Swimming: record 6-1

The girls swimming and diving team had a similar season to that of last year, where they went to States and won a fifth place medal. Having an almost undefeated season, their only loss was to Cumberland Valley High School (8-5) at the last meet of the season. In Districts, Hershey placed second only to Wilson High School.


Boys Swimming: record 7-0

After both large and small victories, the boys swimming team successfully pulled out an undefeated season with a 7-0 record. The season came to an end when the undefeated Trojans ended fourth in Districts.


Wrestling: record 13-5

The Hershey wrestling team had a streaky season to say the least. After losing their first match in December, the Trojans went on to win their next nine matches in a row. To close out the season, Hershey lost four in a row and then won four. At Districts, Hershey finished in 15th (out of 57).
