Cassidy Carroll and Aidan Silk were both named runners of the meet, as the Old Rochester Regional boys and girls indoor-track teams swept Apponequet on January 25. Following the win, ORR’s girls track team was named the South Coast Conference champion. The teams’ next meet will be the SCC championship meet on Saturday, February 10, hosted by Apponequet Regional High School.
ORR’s boys and girls swim teams faced Apponequet on January 25 and both got a win. The boys won 98-60, and the girls won 87-74. The boys are now 5-0, as the girls move to 3-2. The teams’ next meet will be against Apponequet on January 30.
The competition has gotten tougher for ORR/Fairhaven, which lost its last two games to Nantucket and Nauset Regional, but the Bulldogs are keeping their playoff heads above water and took an 8-6-1 record into Wednesday’s rematch with Nantucket at Tabor Academy. Nantucket is ranked second in the MIAA Division 4 power rankings and Nauset first in Division 3.
“We’re doing a good job in beating the teams we should beat,” said ORR/Fairhaven Coach Zach Ledogar, whose team maintains the 12th ranking in Division 4.
Junior forward Caleb Bousquet leads ORR/Fairhaven in scoring with 11-16-27 totals, while junior linemate Connor Galligan is second at 9-16-23. To bolster the attack, Ledogar moved defenseman Barrett Becotte up to forward on the second line, and his 8-11-19 totals reflect well on the decision.
“Defensively, we’re definitely losing a puckmover back there. Barrett’s very dynamic and he’s a great playmaker,” said Ledogar, who feels he has depth with solid defenders. “Plus, I would advocate one of the best goaltenders in the area in Tucker Roy.”
Roy, a sophomore, has three shutouts on the season.
The Bulldogs host Bishop Stang on Saturday at 10:00 am at Tabor.
