HISTORY IN THE MAKING!!!
Boston Latin senior Devin Gallagher and the Wolfpack golf team clinched their second straight Dual County League championship, the first time in school history this has been accomplished. Monday’s 110-102 triumph over Weston was also the team’s 7th straight victory. With another MIAA tourney appearance on the horizon, Devin looks to add to his considerable achievements on the links.
TOWNIES ARE “MOVIN’ ON UP”!!!
Charlestown (4-1) continues to climb the Division 8 North ladder and currently is ranked #4 after a strong 26-16 victory over Madison Park. Coach Dave Cahill leads a group of gritty skill players and determined underclassmen that finish out their Boston City League schedule with a Friday 4 p.m. tilt at Boston English. Emerging as elite players are multi-talented QB Steve Williams, fleet-footed, sophomore running back Malik Fields, freshman phenom tight end Juan Basabe-Muniz and whirling dervish junior center Luis Querubin. Junior quarterback Williams, in particular, has dazzled with both his legs (punts, extra points and kickoffs) an arm (4 TD passes and 3 conversion throws) while also manning the linebacker position.
HOCKEY NEWS: WILL POWER
In EHL action, Walpole Express wing Will Ahearn blasted his second goal in as many games in a 3-2 triumph over the New York Bobcats. Ahearn notched his first goal of the year against the Valley Warriors last week in a winning effort. Merrimack senior defenseman Aaron Titcomb bombed three shots on net during the Warriors 4-1 setback to Wisconsin.
McGRATH LEADS LADY WOLFPACK
Boston Latin 8th-grade phenom Keira McGrath took first place in the breaststroke and sophomore Jolie Doherty placed second in a solid “Townie” outing.
Despite the absence of divers on the girls swim team, which costs the squad points at each event, Boston Latin has still managed to post a 3-3 record. The Lady Wolfpack is backboned by the “Townie” contingent of sophomores Claire Lakus and Jolie Doherty, freshman Victoria Taeb, and 8th-grader Keira McGrath. It is no coincidence that the quartet also earned their chops competing nationally for the Charlestown Boys and Girls Club swim team.
