South Carolina Trip
The Cooper Hawks:
“I didn’t bring you down here just to win…I brought you here to soar!” -- That’s a Dean Baker quote that’s on the back of each Cooper athlete’s T-Shirt worn in South Carolina. The teams leave Manhattan at 6 PM and arrive by bus at 6 AM in South Carolina. They have 12 hours on the bus to unwind, relax, do school work, and prepare for 6 days of rigorous and enjoyable training.
For 25 years our renowned tennis team has traveled on this traditional, success-oriented trip. The scholar-athletes get to know their teammates better, which helps in their success for this trip and their spring seasons.
Day Light Savings:
A student once mentioned on the Friday we arrived, that Day Light Savings starts the next day and we should change the time of our morning sessions of practice because we’d be losing an hours sleep. Dean Baker said (as only he could say), “That’s the only thing we’re going to lose this season.”
Our teams develop as strong individuals and learn to do well in the group dynamic. This year the tennis team, the golf team, and the women’s and men’s basketball teams will go on the trip. Study hard, join a team, play hard, and join us in S.C.
