Four teams win SSL titles this winter!

Four Rockland High School winter  teams have captured their sports’ South Shore League titles this season.

hockey-team-2

The hockey team has had an outstanding winter season 2016-2017 and are South Shore League Champions.

The hockey team was the first to land on top with a win against Hull/Middleboro on Jan. 29.  The hockey team’s record is 17-1-2 in what many have called the best season ever for the squad.  It’s their first league title since 1991.  Check out Liam Lenihan’s story on the hockey team’s season here.

The Rockland-Abington Wrestling team.

The Rockland-Abington Wrestling team. They are  champs for two years in a row.

Next was the wrestling team with their win over Randolph on Feb. 1.  The combined Rockland-Abington squad has now completed  back-to-back title wins, having captured the crown last year as well. Read John MacDonald’s article about their season here.

girls-basketball-team-2017

The girls basketball team has captured the SSL Sullivan Division title again this year.

With a record of 13-5 and 11-2 in the league the girls basketball team has captured the Sullivan Division Championship.  They had lost to Norwell on Feb. 3 which meant that the two teams could have tied for the title but Norwell lost to East Bridgewater last Friday night, giving Rockland the championship alone.  With two freshmen in the starting line-up the team was perhaps not  not expected to do as well as they have. Here is Jayden Libby’s story on the girls’ season.

boys-basketball

The 2016-2017 boys basketball team have won their second league title in a row.

The boys basketball team is the final team to win the SSL Sullivan Division championship.  They did that on Feb. 15 with a great win against Norwell, 62-57.  It went down to the wire but the Dogs prevailed. Here is Jake Lauria’s story on the boys’ season.

And although the swim team did not win a title, they worked hard this year.  Here is Josh Thompson’s story about the swim team.

Four teams, four titles! It’s been a great winter season 2016-2017, and as always, it’s a great day to be a Dog!

The schedule for upcoming games is on the right column of this website.

Bulldog Nation will hopefully support all the teams in their last regular season games so that they can get good seedings for the postseason play-offs.
