I recommend ACE inhibitor (enalapril, captopril, lisinopril, ramipril) and/or diuretic. The latter if you tend to retain water easily with increased salt intake.
If the ACE inhibitor makes you cough, then an ARB (Diovan, Cozaar, Avapro, Atacand.)

None of the above should cause too much inhibition of athletics. Diuretics should be monitored regualrly for any signs of throwing electrolytes out of whack...too low potassium or sodium.
