High School March Madness

February 24, 2011
By

BOYS BASKETBALL: Hats off to Charlestown (18-2, ranked #4) who are primed to make a run at the State title and have gone about their basketball business with style and determination…East Boston (11-3) served notice that they have returned to form and are also a tourney favorite with an impressive win over Charlestown…Boston Latin (10-10) has clinched a spot and St. Clements (8-8), who won seven of their last ten games, is on the verge of qualifying for the State tourney as well.

GIRLS BASKETBALL:  Charlestown (6-6) just refuses to give up the ship and a late season surge may propel them into the tourney.

BOYS HOCKEY: Is this the year Malden Catholic (15-1-2, ranked #1) captures the Super 8 crown?  Either way, it has been a magical season for the players and fans…Boston Latin (13-1-3) has quietly put together an amazing season and can no longer be considered an underdog…Latin Academy (10-7-0) is a classic example that hard work does, in fact, get rewarded…What tourney hopeful St. Clements (7-8-2) may lack in talent, they more than compensate for in grit, hustle and effort.

GIRLS HOCKEY: Though suffering some heartbreaking regular-season losses, Arlington Catholic (7-8-3) is more than capable of holding their own should they get in the tourney.
