Fall Sports Season Off To A Good Start At RHS
Sept. 27, 2021
The fall sports season is underway and two of the teams are undefeated while the rest are also enjoying good starts.
The football team is 3-0 behind a strong running attack with Jacob Coulstring, Lucas Leander and several others leading the way. PJ Celestino and Mike Moriarty are sharing the quarterback duties and Jerry Esposito has been on target in the kicking game. Friday night’s Homecoming Game with Norwell will be a challenge for the Dogs.
The boys soccer team is 6-0 and is quite possibly on its way to a league title. It’s a team effort. This young group with Tommy Gallagher who has three shut outs so far in goal is on a roll. The team has come up with two 1-0 wins, none bigger than their game against Cohasset, a first for a boys Bulldog soccer team. The Dogs have three matches this week. They are home against Middleboro at 4 pm on Wednesday.
The volleyball team had a couple losses against Hingham teams (Hingham High and NDA) but are back on the winning track beating Cardinal Spellman on Sept. 16 and Mashpee the next day. They defeated Carver last Friday and will play Abington at 6 pm today at home. They are led by seniors Jordan Stec, Julia Elie and Darcy McGuirk.
Rockland High’s Emilee Dunham was voted the High School Girls Soccer Player of the Week. The freshman, who received over 1,200 votes, scored four goals in a 5-1 win over Holbrook. The soccer team is working hard and has three games this week with home games on Monday against West Bridgewater and on Friday against East Bridgewater. Both games are at 4 pm.
Both the boys and girls cross country teams are working hard with good performances from individual runners supported by the entire team. The girls defeated Abington on Sept. 9 to open up the season. Their next match is this week on Tuesday at home against Carver. They start off at Hartsuff Park.
The golf team is also out there competing everyday. They opened the season with a win against Carver 78-69 and have had some great matches. Shawn Boostrom and Bryce Marrero are leading the way for new coach Matt Vincenzi. This week they go up against Carver and Middleboro.
Good luck to all the teams and congratulations on a great start to the fall season!!

New elementary school getting closer to completion
Rockland’s new elementary school which will be called The Phelps Elementary School in honor of two Rockland citizens, Ann and Richard Phelps, is nearing completion. A “topping off” ceremony was held on Tuesday, Sept. 14. As part of the event, a beam was hoisted in place to show the conclusion of the current construction phase of the school building project.
At the end of the ceremony the beam was lifted by a crane and put into place on the building.
Below is a video of the ceremony that was held outside the construction area. Have a look!!
