Warrior Weekly: The importance of team

Warrior Weekly: The importance of team

January 18, 2012

I start this week by offering my deepest regrets to the Griffin family. On my right wrist is a purple bracelet that says, “Strength - JG.” I plan to wear this bracelet during the rest of my track meets and games in which I play. The winter season is halfway over for some, and for others it’s almost done. Here is a quick recap of how teams...

Another week of the winter season has gone by, and even though there hasn’t been any snow, the season is almost halfway over. This week was a pretty average week for all teams, but the team that continues to steal the spotlight is the Wayland-Weston girls' hockey team. They beat LS 1-0 and Mansfield 9-0, improving their record to 5-1 overall....

New year, new school, same blog. I hope everyone had a splendid and relaxing break, but now it’s time to get back to work. Wayland teams enjoyed a lot of success as they closed out 2011. The girls' swim team put together their best performance of the year and beat Weston 97-89 over vacation. The boys weren’t ...

Every winter team at the high school has now had their first meet or game (except for ski team, for obvious reasons). Let's start with the best story of the week in Wayland sports: the Wayland-Weston girls' hockey team won on Saturday, 1-0. It was their first win in two years. Freshman Katherine Goguen of Weston scored with 14 seconds left. Con...

The winter season is off and running. Six teams had their first game last week, but it is still early in the season. To get a feel for what this winter looks like for Warrior athletics, check out the sports section's latest in-depth report on the upcoming winter season. First, here's a quick note on the games. Th...

The first full week of winter season has come and gone. Teams are finishing up tryouts and final rosters are being made. I think the best thing about winter sports is the variety that it offers. You can swim, ski, skate or just stick to the usual two feet approach, but that’s what makes this season unique. On top of i...

The football team took care of business on Thanksgiving, winning the Boston Post Road trophy 22-20 over Weston. The game started with skydivers delivering the game ball to midfield. Yeah that’s right, skydivers. It was pretty cool. When the game finally got underway, the two teams seemed evenly matched. There we...

My fall sport ended and I was lost. With nothing to do with my newfound free time, I decided to become a powder-puff coach. Technically I can’t be a coach because I don’t play football, but thanks to Mike MaClean and Tyler Mordas, I was able to join. First, I just want to say that I love it. It is so much fun. I ...

Sunday, November 13th was the last day I'll ever play soccer for Wayland High School. We lost a heart breaker 1-0 to two-time defending state champion Concord-Carlise in the Division two North Sectional final. As the twentieth seed, we beat the thirteenth, the fourth, the fifth, and the first seeded teams on our run ...

I’m sorry. For the first time this year, I did not post a blog last week, and I apologize to all my loyal readers (AKA, mom). I lost power and did not get it back until Thursday, making it very hard to create content for an online publication. Anyways, since the fall season is coming to a close, I thought it would ...

October 24, 2011

After beating Weston 2-0 on Saturday night, we were given Sunday off from practice. Immediately, I knew that I needed to finish my homework early Sunday morning and finish up all my other weekend to-do's, so I could go to Sunday Club. Sunday Club is when members of my fantasy football league gather to watch all the ...

The Dog House: I'm trying a new segment this week called The Dog House. The Dog House will be about fantasy football players who have either under or over performed during the week. The players may be involved for personal or general reasons. The bottom line is, you don't want to be in The Dog House, because it means y...
