Grafton boys’ lacrosse eager to build off prior success

April 22nd, 2017

Grafton – To some, achieving back-to-back Division III Central / West District championships and earning a berth as state finalists (2015, 2016) would be akin to making it to the “Promised Land”, and for the Grafton High School (GHS) boys’ varsity lacrosse team it’s a significant accomplishment and much to be proud of for sure. But coming so tantalizingly close to going the distance has left an after-taste that has this team electrified, hungry and looking for more, said ninth-year head coach Alan Rotatori, who previously held the same role for Newton South High School for 19 years.

Marlborough High baseball team excited for fresh start

April 22nd, 2017

Marlborough — Wins were admittedly hard to come by for the Marlborough High varsity baseball team in 2016, just four all told, but a transformation of sorts is underway on the Panther diamond that bodes well for a reversal that is palpable already in the young season.

Shrewsbury junior impresses in snowboard competitions

April 19th, 2017
