- ICON PASSES AWAY
Townie icon Martin O’Brien Sr. passed away Wednesday morning, March 15. I am blessed and so very thankful to have had him (my father-in-law) be such an important part of my family’s life.
- NICHOLS WINS AGAIN!
Nichols freshman midfielder Hughie O’Donnell, who will be recognized next month as the 47th Lt. Michael Quinn Scholar, blasted two shots on net as the Bisons lacrosse team upped their record to 4-0-0 with a 14-7 smackdown of UMass-Boston.
The Nichols lacrosse team were already off to a flying start in winning their first three games. The Bisons are looking to post their first winning season since 2004 and already seem a lock to do so.

The Wamps were to play Andover in the TD Garden, but due to the snow, the game was moved to Worcester on Wednesday night, too late for Townie Sports deadlines.
