New England High Schools: Keep Your Eyes On Hingham & Norwell

NS HS LAX

By Matt Noonan | @MattyNoonz11

If you’re a fan of the Hingham Harbormen then you couldn’t have asked for a better start to their season.

Hingham enters the new week with a 2-0 mark, thanks to wins over Catholic Memorial and St. John’s Prep (Danvers). Both wins secured them the second position in today’s BostonLax.net week two poll, which found Xaverian Brothers in the top spot, while Boston College High School secured the third position, thanks to a win over Cohasset.

Rounding out the site’s top five positions were Duxbury and Lincoln-Sudbury, checking-in fourth and fifth, respectively.

Hingham checked-in first in the Wicked Local South boys power ranking, while NorwellMarshfield, and Plymouth South secured the second, third, and fourth positions, respectively.

The Harbormen face a very interesting test on Saturday, April 13th when they host Simsbury (Conn.) at 1 p.m., and will certainly need another solid outing from Cooper Dainton, who netted four goals in his team’s win over the Eagles this past weekend.

In today’s Wicked Local South girls power rankings, Norwell secured the top spot, thanks to a 2-0 start, while Braintree, Cohasset, and Hingham checked-in second, third, and fourth, respectively.

Norwell, which returned 23 players from last year’s MIAA D2 state championship squad, has commenced its season with convincing wins over Foxboro and Westwood. The win over the Wolverines – an 8-7 victory – should provide the Clippers with some momentum heading into a week where they will face Hingham and Medfield. Both games won’t be easy.

Medfield enters the early week tilt with Norwell with a 1-0 record, thanks to a 19-4 win over Norwood last Friday. The win over the Mustangs was also the Warriors’ initial Tri-Valley League (TVL) victory, too.

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.
