  • Varsity Water Polo Preview - First Families Lead the Way

    Bud Kohler
         Water Polo begins its second year at the Edwards Family Natatorium in the Beckerman Center and the first as a true varsity level program. In 2021, Andy Lewandowski served as head coach and laid the foundation for this new program. A water polo enthusiast since 1984, Levandowski was a high school All American and 4-time All-Ivy League selection at Yale University. He went on to become the head coach at Yale and the New Haven Hydras Water Polo Club, and has been running water polo clinics for children at the Ridge Top Club since 2010. Levandowski has now turned over the reins to last year’s assistant, Martha Phelan, certainly a familiar face at the HH pool where she has been a senior coach of the USA Hamden Hall Aquatic Club since 2009. Coach Phelan is entering her 44th year of coaching competitive swimming at the age group and high school level in the greater New Haven area. Martha was also the assistant for the Varsity and Middle School teams last year. In addition, she served as the head coach for Splashball Water Polo and the Girls Water Polo Club last spring. On the outside, Martha has been head coach at the Ridge Top Club from 2013 to the present.

         Last season, the squad posted a very respectable 7-4-1 record, including a thrilling split of contests with rival Hopkins. This year’s team is expecting to build on that initial success. The current team of 14 players has three new experienced players along with the returning 11 from last season. It will be an exciting first varsity year, especially because there are several sets of siblings at the heart of the roster, and a number of swimmers were very successful in their summer competitions.

  • The Comeback Kids

    Bud Kohler
         When the Hamden Hall Varsity Swim team rallied to capture the New England title this winter, few student-athletes or fans would likely imagine that they would see another comeback as remarkable. And yet, that’s exactly what the Varsity Baseball team did this spring during a thrilling campaign that culminated in being crowned N.E. champs. Head coach, Brad Chernovetz spent some time reflecting on the season, the team’s efforts, and some of the intangibles that made it all happen.
         In case you do not know, prior to becoming the head coach for Varsity Baseball, Coach Chernovetz, was no stranger to Hamden Hall. In addition to officiating a multitude of Hornet basketball games during the David Beckerman era, Brad also was part of Pete Griffin’s football staff back in the day. A throwback to the “old school” 3 sport athlete days, Brad played football, basketball, and baseball at Amity HS, and then quarterbacked at Wagner College, where he also pitched, explaining that his success in both positions was not about throwing velocity as much as about location. Brad actually started the baseball program at Career H.S., where he is a member of the faculty, in 1998, before taking the reins at Hamden Hall.
