The 2016-2017 school year was a successful one for Wayland High School sports. Six teams (boys’ soccer, wrestling, boys’ swimming & diving, boys’ tennis, girls’ tennis, and boys’ volleyball) appeared in their respective sport’s state final. Four of those teams (boys’ soccer, boys’ swimming & diving, boys’ tennis, and girls’ tennis) won a state championship, along with the boys’ and girls’ crew team’s overall points trophy at the MPSRA regatta.

Fall:
In the fall, reporter Kevin Wang previewed the Celtics’ upcoming season. Student athletes were pleased to hear that teams would be receiving new uniforms this year. The fall of 2016 marked the 10th anniversary of Wayland winning the D1-A state championship in football.

Winter:
The sports section previewed each winter team’s upcoming season. Once again, the girls’ basketball team hosted the annual “coaches vs. cancer” game. The swim and dive team had a successful year, as did freshman Sam Cahaly, who set individual records. The Patriots brought home their 5th super bowl title, and Duncan Stephenson previewed their matchup with the Falcons using advanced statistics. Sean Chase, head coach of the wrestling team, won his 200th match during the state dual meet tournament. Duncan Stephenson recapped the WHS winter sports season.

Spring:
Reporter Charlie Moore, an avid baseball fan, took at look at the fast approaching Red Sox season. The sports section previewed the upcoming spring season, which turned out to be a quite successful one, with three teams appearing in the state finals, and two coming out victorious. After winning their second state title in three years, the boys’ soccer team was honored on the field at Fenway Park before a Red Sox game. As always, Wayland had a number of athletes commit to play sports in college. Coming off a successful season in 2016, the girls’ lacrosse team hoped to have an even better 2017. The girls’ lacrosse team got off to a hot start, winning 13 of their first 15 games. Reporter Kevin Wang wrote another piece on the Boston Celtics, this time previewing their offseason. Both varsity tennis teams played in the MIAA state finals, and both won the championship.
