Bulldogs Capture SCC Crown

The Old Rochester Regional High School boys’ basketball team closed out its South Coast Conference schedule at home on February 18 when the Bulldogs defeated Fairhaven, 56-54, to win the SCC Blue title. With the win, the Bulldogs advanced to 11-2 in SCC competition overall and 8-0 in the last month.

            Senior captain Steven Morrell led his team with 19 points and 14 rebounds. Liam Geraghty contributed with 14 points, while Sawyer Fox scored 11 points and Braden Yeomans scored 10, including a big three-pointer late in the competitive game.

            Yeomans had an even more impressive performance in the game that preceded the championship win, scoring 18 points in the Bulldogs’ 81-63, home-court win against Apponequet on February 15. Geraghty, Fox and Morrell contributed to that win with 15, 14 and 12 points, respectively.

            Old Rochester, ranked 14th in the MIAA Division 3 power rankings, closed out the regular season on Wednesday against 12th-ranked Norwell.

Girls Basketball

            The Lady Bulldogs picked up two big wins last week to close out their SCC schedule, first defeating Apponequet 50-23 on February 15. Maddie Wright scored 9 points and Sydnee Pires scored 8, while Logan Fernandes and Maggie Brogioli both scored 7. They followed up the win with a victory over Fairhaven in their conference finale.

ORR closed out the regular season in the Foxboro Warrior Classic on Monday and had their winning streak snapped by Walpole, 52-29. With a record of 17-2, the Lady Bulldogs will enter the Division 3 playoffs ranked 9th.

Indoor Track

            The ORR track team competed at the Division 4 championship meet at the Reggie Lewis Center on February 17. The boys got top finishes from Murray Coppsin the mile (second place at 4:32,) Colby Grossin the 300 (third, 36.46 seconds,) and the 4×800 team of Copps, Torsten Brickley, John Kassabian and Matthew Curry (fourth, 8:52.) For the girls, Jen Williams came in second place in the high jump, clearing 5 feet, 2 inches, and in the 55-meter hurdles at 8.63.


            Last week got off to a rough start for the Bulldogs, as their Valentine’s Day loss to Dartmouth was followed up by a 2-0 defeat against Somerset Berkley on February 16. However, the Bulldogs were able to bounce back the next day, picking up a 5-0 win against Upper Cape Tech before dropping back-to-back games against Dennis-Yarmouth and Apponequet/Connolly on February 19 and 20. The Bulldogs faced Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech on Wednesday. The Bulldogs are the 30th seed in the Division 3 state playoffs.
