Holderness School is proud to announce that 23 of its student-athletes committed to play competitive college athletics on Wednesday, November 8. These students represent some of the top athletic talent in New Hampshire and New England and are testaments to Holderness School’s culture of academic and athletic excellence. Congratulations to all!
Alpine Skiing Eastern U18
The Holderness School Eastern Alpine skiing program is a recognized leader in ski racing in independent schools, providing the best training and competition opportunities possible for athletes at every level. The Eastern/USSA/FIS program is dedicated to developing strong fundamental skills as well as providing access to and knowledge of the latest modern training and equipment. Our dedicated coaches help our skiers to achieve their highest potential as individuals and as ski racers, all while encouraging a life-long love of the sport.
The Eastern Alpine program is a year-round program with individualized training during the summer months and dryland training opportunities during the school year. On-snow training begins after Thanksgiving break and continues through the beginning of March. Throughout the winter, skiers train at the Mittersill Training Slopes at Cannon Mountain, a designated US Ski Team training venue.
With the start of hockey season just a few short weeks away, and two of his student-athletes listed as “players to watch” by NHL Central Scouting 2023, Boys Varsity Hockey Head Coach Alan Thompson ’04 is cautiously optimistic about his team’s chances.
Congratulations to all the exceptional student-athletes and their coaches who made this spring sports season so memorable! The hard work, dedication, and passion displayed on the lacrosse field, the tennis court, the rock climbing crag or the skatepark, has represented Holderness School well.
Holderness School’s Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team just finished an historic, undefeated season in which they went 17-0, won the NEPSAC Lakes Region Championship, and had all three coaches named U.S. Lacrosse Coaches of the Year.
Taylor Dobyns ’16 thrives in high-pressure situations. Earlier this month, after finishing 2nd in North America in the Freeride World Qualifier, she qualified for the 2024 Freeride World Tour, where elite freeskiers and snowboarders travel the globe to compete on huge mountains and extreme terrain. And, later this spring, she will graduate from law school at the University of Denver. “I definitely get the exact same adrenaline rush having my heart in my throat before dropping into these huge big mountain comp lines and before getting up in court and giving a closing argument,” Taylor says. “My friends joke around that ‘Oh, of course you picked the only two professions – being a professional athlete or being a lawyer – where there’s a winner and a loser.’”
