Baseball And Softball Schedule

With the end of the winter season also comes the beginning of the spring sports season, and so today we begin the 2019 spring sport schedule rollout with baseball and softball. Couple of things about these schedules is that they do not yet include non-league games and also some early games may change depending on field conditions. Baseball will play all home games at Sprague again this year while softball will play once again at Lee. All games will start at 3:45 unless noted.

Hockey Reviews

Now that the winter season has officially ended it’s time to take a look back at the 2018-19 winter season with some season reviews. What better way to start than by taking a look back at both hockey programs. The girls finished the regular season 13-4-3 before defeating Canton, Norwell, Walpole and finally Notre Dame Academy in an overtime thriller to capture their second straight D2 state title. With only 5 graduating seniors look for the girls to be heavy favorites for a 3rd straight title come next season.

The boys team also earned a postseason trip in 2018-19 after finishing the regular season 11-7-2. After defeating Walpole in the first round of the D1 South bracket the boys fell to eventual state champion Duxbury in the quarterfinals. Much like their female counterparts the boys will have a strong core back next season and will look to once against battle for Bay State Conference and D1 supremacy.

Stay tuned tomorrow as we’ll review both basketball teams!

How Our Opponents Fared

Now that the winter sports tournament has come to an end I thought it would be interesting to take a look at how the teams who knocked off both basketball teams and boys hockey fared in the remainder of the tournament, as I think the results will intrigue you. Let’s take a look!

Boys Basketball:

Newton North defeated Brookline in D1 South Semifinals, defeated Mansfield in D1 South Finals, and then lost to Lynn English in D1 State Semifinals.

Girls Basketball:

Braintree defeated Needham in D1 South Finals, defeated Central Catholic in D1 State Semifinals, and then defeated Springfield Central in D1 State Finals.

Boys Hockey:

Duxbury defeated Barnstable in D1 South Semifinals, defeated Franklin in D1 South Finals, and defeated Winchester in D1 State Finals.
