New England HS Notebook: Can Reading Repeat As MIAA D2 State Champions?

NE HIGH SCHOOL NOTEBOOKS

By Matt Noonan | @MattyNoonz11

It finally feels like spring in New England, which means a brand new season of high school lacrosse is set to begin for a few squads later this week – are you excited?

This spring, Noontime Sports will be producing some features and notebooks on New England high school lacrosse, which we are super-excited about – we hope you are, as well.

Let’s begin our coverage with our initial notebook of the season with some news and links from the world wide web and social media!

  • Mike Tobin and the Reading Rockets will begin their title defense next Monday, April 1st when they host Marblehead for a 4:30 p.m. face-off. Tobin should once again be the player to watch on Reading this spring before he heads west to compete for the University of Massachusetts. Tobin and the Rockets were recently featured in The Boston Globe last week – can they make it back-to-back seasons as champions? We’ll have to wait and see.

    In addition to facing Marblehead next Monday, Reading is also scheduled to compete next Friday, April 5th against Austin Prep (4 p.m.). Five days later, Reading will entertain Watertown before hitting the road for a late week tilt with Wakefield.

  • After falling short of reaching the championship game last spring, the Greenwich girls lacrosse team will attempt to reach that stage later this spring, thanks to 20 returners from its 2018 squad.

    As noted in the piece on Greenwich, four players will continue their career at the next level, including Olivia Cann, who will compete for Johns Hopkins University. Fans can spot Cann this spring on the defensive end.

  • Catherine Manning, Alex Houlden and Alyssa Saraceni will captain the Peabody girls lacrosse team this spring, as noted in the Daily Item. All three seniors were captains for the Tanners last spring, which should bode well for Peabody, which hopes to erase memories of a postseason setback to Reading.

    Peabody will entertain Gloucester next Wednesday, April 3rd with opening draw set for 4 p.m.

  • A new era of high school lacrosse is set to begin in Nashua, New Hampshire as both the boys and girls’ teams will have new coaches this season, according to The Telegraph.

    Nick Sampson will oversee the boys lacrosse team – he is a New Hampshire native that competed for Daniel Webster College – while Heather McKillop and Kristen Peterson will be co-coaches for the girl’s team.

  • Bridgewater-Raynham boys lacrosse has established a winning tradition over the past few years, but the Trojans must find a way to continue it without 12 seniors from last year’s 16-3 unit.

    For B-R to continue its previous success, they will need to rely on its defense to fuel its offense. The team’s four captains, including James MacDermott, is confident in the defense but optimistic about what they should see from the offense this spring.

NS D3 MLAX TOP 10

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @NoontimeLax

Another week of New England D3 lacrosse is in the books, which means it is time to unveil our third Noontime Sports Top 10 Poll, which once again finds Amherst College and Tufts University in the first two positions followed by Wesleyan UniversityWilliams College, and Bates College.

Williams College moved into the fourth position with a 16-14 win over the Bobcats, thanks to a 7-1 run in the second quarter that helped the Ephs secure their fifth-straight victory. Williams hasn’t lost since falling to Wesleyan in its season-opener and should continue its winning ways later this week when they face Colorado College and MIT.

Middlebury College remained in the sixth position with a weekend win over Bowdoin College, while Coast Guard Academy and Endicott College joined our weekly poll with victories on Saturday, as well. The Bears needed an extra session to edge Merchant Marine, while the Gulls cruised to its initial conference win over Curry College.
