As we continue along on this Tuesday morning, it’s time for day 2 of our 2017 fall sports recaps, as today we take a look back at the field hockey and girls volleyball teams. The field hockey team once again made it to the postseason after finishing the regular season 12-4-2, earning the 10 seed in D1 South. The girl’s shut out Hingham in the preliminary round but then went up against archival Needham and saw their season come to a disappointing end with a 1-0 loss to the Rockets. That being said there was still a lot to be proud of for this Raider team and look for them to be right back in the thick of things next season.
Meanwhile the girls volleyball team also earned a trip to postseason play for another season as they finished their regular season 11-5 under first year head coach Tasha Odemwingle, earning the number 9 seed in the D1 Central-West bracket. The girls went on the road and defeated Shepherd Hill in a thrilling 5 set match in the first round, but then could not overcome the top seeded Groton-Dunstable Crusaders in the quarterfinals losing 3-1. That being said this team fought and battled to the very end, and gives a lot of reason for optimism, as they will look to battle for another postseason berth in 2018. Stay tuned tomorrow as we take a look at boys golf and girls swimming!
