ORR Boys, Girls Run to SCC Titles

            Old Rochester track and field continues to reign supreme. Both the Bulldogs’ boys and girls teams are once again South Coast Conference champions, each winning this year’s conference championship meet on June 12. The boys squad finished with 84 points, defeating runner-up Dighton-Rehoboth by eight points. ORR’s girls team posted a whopping 150 points, nearly doubling up second-place Somerset Berkley (84 points).

            Jen Williams led all performers with three first-place finishes. She tied for first with teammate Maggie Brogioli, posting 5-foot-4 leaps in the high jump. Williams then won the long jump (16-6) and 100 hurdles (15.27 seconds) outright.

            Julia Sheridan and David Reynolds were both two-event winners in the meet. Sheridan won the 400 and javelin on the girls side, and Reynolds won the shot put and discus. Colby Gross also won an event for ORR (400), as did Emma Carroll (800).

Old Rochester Regional Baseball

            The Bulldogs finished the regular season off 4-5 with their 10-7 win against Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech on June 14. Ryon Thomas led ORR’s 15-hit day with a 4-for-5 performance, in which he drove in a run. Steven Carvalho also had a multi-hit day, finishing 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs. The Bulldogs await the seeding announcement for the MIAA State Tournament, in which all teams can participate this season, regardless of record.

Old Colony Baseball

            The Cougars carried their run of strong play into a June 11 matchup against Tri-County. Old Colony pulled off an 11-8 win to improve to 8-2 (5-1 Mayflower Athletic Conference). Reese Vandal went off on Tri-County, launching a home run, scoring four times and driving in two in his 3-for-3 showing. Kyle St. Jean also had three hits in the win, scoring three runs in the process. Ryan McGuiggan, Ryan Silva, and Matthew McGuiggan drove in two runs apiece for Old Colony.

Old Rochester Girls Lacrosse

            The Bulldogs improved to 10-0 on the season with their blowout 19-8 win over Bourne. Maddie Wright scored six times, Meg Horan four, and Maggie Carroll three times, keeping their hopes for a perfect season alive with only a Tuesday meeting with Fairhaven remaining on their regular season schedule.

Old Rochester Regional Boys Lacrosse

            The Bulldogs were working with a perfect record heading into their final game of the regular season after defeating Bourne, 18-1, but ORR could not get it done against non-league opponent Bridgewater-Raynham. The Trojans got the better of the Bulldogs in the hard-fought 9-8 contest on June 12. The final score would have looked much different if not for Sean Lally’s efforts in net. ORR awaits the seeding announcement for the MIAA State Tournament.

Old Colony Boys Lacrosse

            The Cougars wrapped up regular season play with a 7-4 win over Blue Hills Regional on June 14, improving to 9-3 on the season and 6-2 in the MAC. Jake O’Neill and Luke Meelia each scored a goal in the win, but Old Colony’s Will Harrop outscored the Warriors on his own. The Cougars await the seeding announcement for the MIAA State Tournament.
