The Dover-Sherborn Regional High School varsity alpine ski team enjoyed an incredibly successful season on the slopes in 2016-2017. However, even some DS residents who opted to take their athletic talents elsewhere had successful athletic campaigns this past winter season. Dover’s Izzy Kocher is the prime example after what she did for the Noble and Greenough girls alpine ski team during the last five months.
After putting on a pair of skies for the first time when she was just two years old, alpine skiing has been a big part of almost the entirety of Izzy Kocher’s life. In 2016-2017, Kocher helped lead Nobles to the school’s fourteenth ISL (Independent School League) girls alpine skiing title in the last 15 years, solidifying Nobles A.S. as arguably the most dominant program in the entire ISL, which is incredible given the success of some of the talent and programs within the ISL on a given year (Nobles and St. Sebastian’s hockey, Nobles and Governor’s lacrosse, etc).
Kocher won six races in eight starts for the Bulldog ski team in 2016-2017, and was named league MVP. The junior is a two-time All-New England Class-A pick and this past week was named Boston Globe All-Scholastic.
Congrats to Izzy Kocher on these incredible accomplishments and best of luck during the remainder of your high school alpine skiing career at Nobles.
