April 23, 2019,
Despite the past Saturday washout, it was a busy and successful week for our Spring Sports teams.
On Tuesday, our JV Lacrosse program played a "friendly" with Pine Cobble. Many of our students got to see old friends and familiar faces as they entered the competition. In a well-played game, our Hurricanes were able to secure a victory to kick off the week. Equally as important, our Hurricanes made a great impression on the visiting Pine Cobble team, by playing with class and being good sports, and hopefully, that will result in a few more students making the transition from Pine Cobble to MHS. Congrats JV Lax!
Wednesday saw a number of games as well...
Varsity Lacrosse hosted Hoosac school in a physical matchup. Our Hurricanes were up to the test as they used their speed, agility, and high level of skill to race out to an early lead. Despite some hard hitting from the Hoosac team, our Varsity Lacrosse players were able to secure a lead and a victory.
Softball hosted IMS and won in DRAMATIC fashion. In a matchup that has been, in recent history, been one-sided in favor of IMS, our Softball players rose to the challenge one put a W in the win column. Behind some timely hitting, solid pitching, and some slick fielding, our Hurricanes found themselves in a position to win the game in the bottom of the last inning. Big shoutout to Gabby Nicholson who drove in the winning, WALK OFF, run in the bottom half of the inning to ensure a home victory for our Hurricanes.
Tennis took the long ride to Canterbury to take on the Saints. While a closely contested matchup, our Tennis team came up a bit short. While they continue to grow as a team and as individual tennis players, they are still on the hunt for that elusive first team win of the season. We know that W is just around the corner!
On Friday, our Softball team was back in action against Forman. In a game where the Softball team was looking to get some revenge from an early season, 1 run loss at Forman, our Hurricanes were hoping that would happen on our home turf. In a very tight game throughout all 7 innings, our Hurricanes just didn't have enough late-game magic as their 7th inning rally fell a run short.
The rest of the weekend was a washout as the Berkshire's saw a lot of rain on Saturday.
Our teams were back in action yesterday and we will have more info on those games next week.
