Sports Updates:


Boys Basketball had a stellar week as they picked up three wins to improve their record to 9-5. In their first home game in nearly a month, the boys defended the nest and beat Minuteman by a score of 63-51. Senior Captain Colin Holden had a monstrous 33 points and 15 rebounds while Christian Federico dropped 18 points of his own. The boys added two more wins on the week, taking care of business against Northeast Tech and Fellowship Academy. 


Girls Basketball dropped a pair of hard fought games last week which brings their record on the season to 5-9. They dropped a tough match-up on the road on Friday night against Swampscott by a score of 35-27. Junior Captain Emma Dorgan led the way with 16 points. The girls are back in action this week on Tuesday and Friday. 


Winter Cheer is working hard and has attended every home basketball game to support both the girls and boys teams, and will continue to represent as the season moves on.  The squad is loud and energetic and brings life to the gym during game play. The girls will be performing on Friday night at the boys basketball game against Innovation Academy at 5:30. 


Boys Hockey split a pair of games this week, bringing their record to 14-1-1 on the season. The boys won a tight match-up against Northeast Tech on Wednesday evening by a score of 4-3. After being down a goal in the third period, Logan Casey led the comeback charge and finished the game with two goals. Head Coach Mark Leonard described the game as a “character win” for the squad. The boys took their first loss of the season on Saturday afternoon vs. Shawsheen Tech. 


Girls Hockey split two games last week to bring their season record to 5-8-2. On Wednesday evening, the girls beat Arlington Catholic by a score of 3-0 with Penny Levine-Stein picking up two goals in a fantastic performance. Allie Sprisser added an assist while Lexi Salah was steller on defense en route to the victory. The girls then dropped a hard fought game against Auburn later in the week. With five games left, the girls look to tighten things up for the postseason. 


Boys & Girls Indoor Track faced off against Hamilton-Wenham on Tuesday afternoon. The boys squad fell in a tight contest 58-37 as the girls picked up a victory by a score of 53-41! The girls earned first place in the 4x200m and 4x400m events en route to the win. For the boys, Hadden Amico ran a sub five minute mile and Dan LeBlanc broke his own school record in the 55m dash. 


Wrestling competed in two tough matches against Whittier Tech and Pentucket last week. The squad looks to tighten things up as they head into the postseason. The first round of the playoffs begin next Saturday for the sectional round of the MIAA Tournament. 


Swimming hosted senior night at the Peabody YMCA last week and put on quite the event with many first place finishes. In the 200m medley relay, Ely Wallen, James Teague, Kelly Uribe, and Mia Koulopoulos placed first with a time of 2:02.18. Madeline Murray also won her diving event while many other Hawk athletes earned first and second place honors.
