Spring Sports Have Begun
April 3, 2019 (updated April 4)
The RHS spring sports season has gotten underway this week after two weeks of preseason preparations.
The line-up this year of spring sports teams includes boys and girls tennis, boys and girls lacrosse, boys and girls track along with baseball and softball.
On Tuesday, April 2, the lacrosse teams both opened up against the Abington Green Wave in Abington and both were successful. The boys came away with a 16-4 win while the girls outscored Abington 17-10. For the girls Maddie Blonde had six goals and one assist. The lacrosse teams will be back at it on Friday against Archbishop Williams.
Also on Tuesday the baseball team traveled to Pembroke. They were not as fortunate as the lacrosse teams, losing to Pembroke 3-1. The Dogs got solid pitching from Declan Rogers and Robert Ivil. Cullen Rogers scored the run with a double and Ricky Glavin’s RBI single.
The softball team traveled to Whitman-Hanson on Thursday after a rain-out on Wednesday. They came up with the win 9-4. Michaela Bruno went 4 for 4, with a hit and 3 doubles. On the mound she pitched 7 innings, allowing 5hits and striking out 7. Macy Grass went 2 for 3 and Shannon Murphy had a 3 run home run. They will be playing Plymouth-North tomorrow (Friday).
The boys and girls tennis teams went against Randolph on Thursday. The boys won 5-0 and the girls got the win 4-1. Both teams play Mashpee tomorrow (Friday).
The track teams will have their first meet next week on Weds. April 10 at Abington against Cohasset/Hull. The track teams always have to play away because Rockland does not have a suitable track for meets.
Good luck to all the teams as they begin their seasons. Here’s hoping the weather gets a little warmer!
