Warrior Weekly: Continued success
May 5, 2013
Boys’ lacrosse played Weston in a W-Day game and won 8-4. They are now 10-3 on the season. They are pretty dominant.
But the dominance doesn’t stop there. Both girls’ lacrosse (now 8-1-1) and boys’ tennis continued to win their matches and games. Boys’ tennis is continuing their quest for back to back state championships. They now have a record of 7-2 after their most recent win against Acton-Boxborough.
And what a win this week from the softball team! The girls beat Mt. Alvernia 20-8. What a nice, explosive day for the offense.
Boys’ volleyball had a great week as well, going 3-1 with wins over Boston Latin (twice) and Winchester. They are now at an even 7-7 on the season.
Baseball won a major game against Bedford on Monday 8-3. This kept them at second in the DCL and on the road to the tournament.
In the other sports world, the Celtics season is over, along with an era that will never be forgotten. Word on the street is that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will not return to the Celtics.
It’s funny that most people say they remember where they were when important events happen. Most teachers will be able to tell you where they were when 9/11 happened or where they were when JFK was shot. I can tell you exactly where I was when I found out Kevin Garnett was traded to the Celtics.
I am not making this up. I was in Boothbay Harbor with my age group at camp. I saw a copy of the Boston Globe in a convenience store with a story about the trade for KG. I remember it like it was yesterday, but it was six years ago. It has been six years of Celtics success. I can’t even imagine what the Celtics will be like without Paul Pierce or what the NBA would be like without Kevin Garnett.
But buckle up Celtics fans, because without those two we may be in for a few bumpy years. Lebron James is not walking through that door.
“I couldn’t be more proud of a group of guys who went through (so much) adversity. They never didn’t think they could (do it).”
