LADY VIKINGS SET SAIL
In their fourth season as a varsity program, the Salem St. women’s’ hockey team looks to make some noise in the New England Hockey Conference. Early signs are encouraging as a trio of “Townie” skaters are making a huge impact in the Lady Vikings (2-3-0) success. Rugged senior wing Danielle Kelley (career: 11 goals, 13 assists) brings a physical presence both in front of the net and in the corners and senior Jacqueline Sindoris (career: 10 goals, 10 assists) has emerged as one of the league’s elite wings and utilizes a terrific skill set to ignite the offense. Whirling dervish junior centerwoman Rose Sullivan (career: 5 goals, 3 assists) is the go-to faceoff specialist (38 of 74 for 52 percent this season) and a workaholic sparkplug.
TOWNIE TANDEM SHINES AT STATES
The Boston Latin swim team finished in 10th place at the MIAA State Championships (held at Harvard University) as a pair of “Townie” standouts splashed their way to some sensational times. Freshman phenom Keira McGrath, once again, firmly established herself among the state’s elite swimmers with a dominating performance and junior Jolie Doherty added to her impressive Lady Wolfpack achievements.
In the team events, Keira backboned Boston Latin to a thirdplace finish in the 200 Medley Relay while Jolie anchored the 200 Freestyle Relay squad to an 11th place finish. Both girls played an important role in the Lady Wolfpack finishing seventh in the 400 Freestyle Relay. Individually, Keira shined in both the 200 Medley (where she placed fifth) and the 100 Breaststroke (where she finished second) while Jolie placed 25th in the 200 Freestyle.
Congratulations ladies and thanks for being great ambassadors for Charlestown!!!
