With the fall sports season in its final days, it’s time to look back at the season that was with our annual fall sports recaps. We start off today by taking a look back at both the boys and girls soccer teams who both achieved post-season berths in 2017. The girls, after missing the tournament in 2016, used that as motivation as under first year head coach Cat Whitehill the team battled its way to a 7-6-3 regular season mark earning the 15th seed in D1 South. After a 1-0 victory over Durfee in the preliminary round the team saw it’s postseason hopes dashed by Newton South as the girls fell 4-1 to the Lions. Despite that there’s a tremendous amount of reason for optimism for the Raiders as they’ll look build on this run next year.
The boy’s soccer team also had a very successful season, as they not only finished 13-2-1 overall in the regular season but captured the Bay State Herget crown in the process. That record earned the team the 2 seed in D1 South, where they defeated BC High 4-1 in the first round, before seeing their season cut short after a quarterfinal upset loss to Weymouth 3-2 in penalty kicks. That being said coach Tim Mason and his squad certainly have reason to be happy with this season, and will look to defend their conference title come fall of 2018. Keep an eye out tomorrow as we will recap field hockey, and girls volleyball!
