The fall sports season has come to an end. Here’s how each of the WHS teams fared during the season.


Regular Season Record: 4-3, DCL Small Champions

Playoffs/tournament: Lost in the sectional quarterfinals

Captains: Sean Devlin, Duncan Stephenson, Ben Robinson

“I think we had a solid season, 7-4 is a great record,” senior captain Ben Robinson said. “There definitely were a lot of games we should have won that I have a lot of regret about, but overall [we had] a good season.”

Girls crew

Playoffs/Tournament: won Richard W. Stavros Overall Team Award; won Girls 8+s Russ Krause Award; won Sculling Team Trophy; won Girls Varsity 8+ trophy at Massachusetts Public School Rowing Association State Regatta.

Captains: Helen Cliff, Kyra Patterson, Neha Joshi (Weston)

“We had a great season, we had a lot of good wins and we had some great girls,” senior captain Helen Cliff said.

Boys crew

Playoffs/Tournament: Won Richard W. Stavros Overall Team Award; won Sculling Team Trophy, won Boys Varsity 8+ and won Boys Novice 4+ Trophy at Massachusetts Public School Rowing Association State Regatta.

Captains: Kevin Hodgden, Jack Spector (Weston), Will Paquin (Weston)

Girls’ Volleyball

Record: 2-14

Playoffs/tournament: Did not qualify

Captains: Naomi Lathan, Cassie O’Heron

“We had a few games that went to a full five sets and were so close,” senior captain Naomi Lathan said. “The first one I remember was when we played Belmont. It was really close and went to five sets, and we’re not usually used to that because we struggled in the past. We lost the game but it kind of gave us a lot of momentum heading into the rest of the season. Definitely, the biggest win for me this season was when we beat Weston on senior night because we don’t win a lot and it was senior night. It was really exciting.”

Boys’ Soccer

Record: 11-1-5

Playoffs/tournament: Lost in D3 North semi-finals.

Captains: Marco Melero, Michael Jones, Zack Dresens, Joe Lyons

“The Weston game that happened two days ago– that was really special,” senior captain Zack Dresens said. “Playoffs against other rivals, [there were] a lot of student fans, and we were down 2-0 [which] shows a real grit to come back and win, and I think overall over my four years that’s definitely one of my favorite memories.”

Girls’ Soccer

Record: 9-10-2

Playoffs/tournament: Lost in the D3 North Semifinals

Captains: Brooke LaPierre, Nehda Khadjenoori, Kayla Mabe

“This team was very special,” senior captain Brooke LaPierre said. “We were all very close and that’s definitely why we were so successful. There really wasn’t a divide [between] upperclassmen and underclassmen like you see on other sports teams. The team was also very close to our coaching staff which made the season and playoffs/tournament a lot more fun.”


Record: 5-8

Playoffs/tournament: Did not qualify

Captains: Chris Balicki, Haydn Davies

“We didn’t make the playoffs but we had a pretty good season playing in a tough division,” senior captain Chris Balicki said. “We also played spoiler for Swampscott at the end of the season.”

Field Hockey

Record: 0-14-1

Playoffs/tournament: Did not qualify

Captains: Ella Johnson, Lucy Hughes, Marlee Griffin

“We didn’t exactly have the victories we wanted but we ended up really pulling ourselves together by the end of the season,” senior Lindsay Jacobs said. “We were scoring in games with teams like LS, which is a rarity when you’re going up against these girls that are committed to D1 schools.”


Record: 3-3

Playoffs/tournament: placed 17th out of 24 at divisionals

Captains: Thomas Daley, Vincent Pak, Shae Comettant, Megan Walsh, Matt Clayton

“An overall highlight for most of the team was running at the Bob Mcintyre Twilight meet in Falmouth, MA,” senior captain Matt Clayton said. “Cross-country, in general, tends to be a very laid back sport, so big invitationals such as Twilight are always a lot of fun.”
