Warrior Weekly: State tournaments part II

Warrior Weekly: State tournaments part II

It’s March and it finally feels like winter, does that mean it won’t be spring until June? I hope not, but the winter weather came just in time for the state playoffs. With the girls hockey, boys hockey and boys basketball teams all playing last week, it was a great time to follow Warrior sports. The girls hockey team got it all started on Wednesday, in Franklin,...

For most teams, the winter season is over but for a few teams, their respective state tournaments are just beginning. February break is over and with it the swim, track, wrestling, alpine ski and girls basketball seasons. The only teams that are still playing are the boys and girls hockey teams and the boys basketball ...

It really hasn’t been too winter-y out this year, and this has only hindered the BYHL (BackYard Hockey League). Although the last few weeks weren’t cold enough for the ice to freeze, this weekend was, and I was able to play for the first time this season. Now, winter sports like skiing, snowb...

We lost the Super Bowl, and it sucks. I may be ready to talk about the Super Bowl a little bit, but it’s all still a little too fresh and all too familiar. The Patriots 21-17 super loss hurts, and it hurts badly. But looking at the big picture, it might hurt even more. Boston has no doubt had the greatest ru...

Midterms are over, and I’m officially in senior spring, awesome. Like the school year, the winter season is past the half way mark, and for some teams it's already the postseason. Boys' and girls' swimming ended their regular season on Friday with both teams picking up the W. Next up for both teams is the DCL Champ...

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...
