Rugby Advances to State Final on Saturday June 10th

The Milton Ruggers took advantage of a depleted Algonquin squad on Friday, by dismantling them 61-10 in the semi-finals.  The match took place at Curry College.  Just over a week from beating Algonquin to earn the #2 seed, the Wildcats were required to repeat the task of taking down the T-Hawks.  It could not have gone any more smoothly.  Milton led 55-5 at the half, and kept the pace after the break.

They will await the winner of Marshfield and Hanover on Sunday.  Milton’s only loss came against Marshfield, while they handled Hanover during the regular season.

The final will take place at Endicott College on Saturday, June 10th.  The time will be determined early next week,

Boys Tennis finishes 13-5 with win over Dedham

The Wildcat Boys Tennis Team closed out their regular season with a convincing 4-1 victory over Bay State Rival Dedham.

Softball Senior Night ends with walkoff single

It was a picture perfect night for the Wildcats on Friday.  The Sharon Eagles rolled into town and quickly jumped to a 5-0 lead on Milton in just 2 innings.  Milton would rally in the 4th inning to take the lead 6-5.  After some excellent defensive stops for both sides, they entered the final frame needing only 3 outs.  It did not go as planned however, and Sharon scored twice to unnerve some fans.  Milton found their way out of the top half of the inning and entered the bottom of the 7th, tied 6-6.  They seemed poised to go to extra innings, but after a leadoff single, and an excellent bunt, Milton found themselves in scoring position.  A few batters latter, and a well-struck ball to right-center field, saw the Wildcats win the game 7-6 in the final inning.  It was a great night for the seniors, and a great crowd thanks to parents and the Milton Youth Softball Program.

Girls Lacrosse Tourney Bound!!

Girls Lacrosse have won 6 out of their last 7 games on their way to a tournament berth! After starting the season off slow, with tough games against Newton North, Wellesley, and Walpole, the Wildcats have bounced back and clinched the post-season today with a comeback win over Canton.  The Bulldogs were up by 4 goals over the Wildcats with just 4 minutes to play. A barrage of Milton goals found themselves ahead with under a minute to play.  After going ahead 10-9, they won the ensuing face-off and it was just a matter of playing keep-away until the final whistle.

They will look to build on their win with another non-league fixture against Bridgewater-Raynham tomorrow night.  It is also Senior Night, so be sure to come out and show your support!!

Boys Tennis Keep Winning

From Coach Paul Ajemian;

Milton was well represented over the past 2 weekends at the MIAA’s Individual Tennis tournament held at Newton North H.S. Singles players: Michael Gates, Gianni Rodrigues, & Nate Dickens, along with the doubles team of: KJ Meade & Jeff Chen participated in this highly regarded and ultra-completive event. Although Mike Gates was the only Wildcat player to advance beyond the 1st round, MHS’ other entries gained valuable experience at the event. Mike, on the other hand, played remarkably well as he advanced to the round of 8 (out of 59) and was one game away from the semifinals when he was hobbled by leg cramps. Following a brief rest, Mike made a gallant effort to finish the match, but his opponent took advantage of Mike’s lack of mobility, and easily comeback to defeat Mike 5-7 in the 3rd set.
The men’s tennis team will now look forward to participating in the MIAA Division II State Tennis Tournament beginning on June 1 after posting an outstanding 12-5 record.
