Warrior Weekly: Final post

Warrior Weekly: Final post

Andrew Herstine

June 21, 2012

I meant to do this a while ago, but I guess I got caught up in all the senior festivities. Since this is still a sports blog, it would be a shame if I didn’t mention that the boys tennis team won the state championship against Sharon. I am writing my final post in a very reflective mind-set since I just graduated. The 1...

Warrior Weekly: Why do you play?

Warrior Weekly: Why do you play?

Andrew Herstine

June 4, 2012

This week, Andrew discusses why a student plays sports in high school and the expectations for an athlete at any competitive level. The theme of this blog and the In-Depth Report this term is why do you play? Why do you choose to play sports for the high school? We had decided to do this project before the Window performance a few weeks ago, but if any of you w...

Warrior Weekly: Spring check-in

Warrior Weekly: Spring check-in

Andrew Herstine

May 1, 2012

No, this "check-in" isn’t a mini math quiz, don’t worry. Can you believe it’s already May?! Where has the year gone? May means that for most of us, there are less than two months left in school, and for seniors, only one. It also means that the regular season for spring sports is in its final month. The seasons are starting to shape up for teams as they prepare for the mont...

Warrior Weekly: Spring slump

Warrior Weekly: Spring slump

Andrew Herstine

April 24, 2012

I apologize for being inconsistent with my last few posts, but I hope to finish the year off strong. Hopefully my senior slump will only affect my other classes and not Journalism. I know that the spring season won’t slump, so I can’t afford to. Some Wayland teams have started off with a strong spring while others are still trying to get their feet...

April 3, 2012

Two weeks in to the spring season, and some teams have already started their regular seasons, while others are still preparing for their start. Boys lacrosse was the first to open the spring season, with their first game against Brookline. The boys lost, 7-4. Girls lacrosse opened their season Monday against Tantasqua (yeah, you read that right). They won, 15-12. This spring ...

March 19, 2012

If you haven’t been able to tell from the last few days that spring is coming, you probably need to get out more. This weekend was beautiful especially Sunday. Thankfully this weather has come just in time for spring sports, and it seems to be here to stay. I remember last year the first day of tryouts were played in a inch or two of snow. Hopefully this year the wea...

Warrior Weekly: Hockey wins, Madness begins

Warrior Weekly: Hockey wins, Madness begins

Andrew Herstine

March 12, 2012

This has easily been the most thrilling weekend I’ve ever had in high school. It all started with two killer performances of the Senior Show on Friday and Saturday, and it was just capped off with a boys hockey victory. The seventh-seeded boys knocked off the top-seeded Bedford, 4-1, to win the ...

Warrior Weekly: State tournaments part II

Warrior Weekly: State tournaments part II

Andrew Herstine

March 6, 2012

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,...

Andrew Herstine

February 27, 2012

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 ...

Warrior Weekly: BYHL

Warrior Weekly: BYHL

Andrew Herstine

February 15, 2012

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...

Warrior Weekly: Patriot problem

Warrior Weekly: Patriot problem

Andrew Herstine

February 8, 2012

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...

Warrior Weekly: Wayland-Weston, a powerhouse?

Andrew Herstine

January 30, 2012

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...
