Field hockey team wins again
The MVRHS field hockey team defeated Wareham here, Tuesday, 2-0. The Islanders not only outscored the visitors, they controlled the pace of the game and kept the ball in the Wareham end of the field three quarters of the time. Sophie Lew put the ball in the net 12 and a half minutes into the game, assisted by Jane Alexander.
Hilary Dreyer led the purple-clad girls to a narrow victory over Seekonk. She finished first in 21:08.
Over hill and dale
Rain and wet grounds did not prevent Seekonk from bringing its cross-country teams to the Vineyard, Friday. The Warrior male harriers ran off with an 18-45 win. Seekonk runners were first and second. MV's Lucas Emin (mistakenly called Ryann in last week's Times) led the Vineyarders, finishing third overall in 18:39. Evan Kendall was the second purple runner to cross the line. He was 7th overall in 18:58. The next Vineyarders - Forest Harcourt, Max Conley, Ben Williams, and Connor Rasmussen - placed 10th, 11th, 14th and 15th.
