Girls’ Lacrosse Team Looks to Start Strong

This Saturday, the Concord-Carlisle girls’ lacrosse team had their first competition of the season, when they traveled to Westwood for a pre-season “play-day.” Prior to Saturday, the team had not yet practiced on an actual field or with an actual goal. That being said, they played well, and beat King Phillips Academy. They also played Needham, but unfortunately lost.  The team was originally scheduled to play in four games, but weather got in the way, and after only two games, snow prevented the tournament from continuing. Last season, the Patriots had an impressive 15-2-1 record, and made it to the Division 2 North Finals, where they lost to Franklin in a nail-biter. The team looks to build from last year’s success; however, they lost eight players that made up the core of last year’s team, including...

CCHS Concert Band Returns From Indianapolis

On Sunday, precisely at 2:11 in the afternoon, the last of the CCHS Concert Band members stepped into the school, laden with suitcases, instrument cases, and maroon garment bags filled with uniforms.  Many helped to carry the various percussion-related items from the rented luggage truck into the band room before trudging tiredly out to meet their parents for the much anticipated car ride home.  A few of the students with more energy organized the luggage into a pile so that some of the kids who had flown home on Saturday could retrieve their bags on Monday.  As the exhausted musicians dispersed and went their separate ways for the first time since the previous Tuesday, all relived the highs and lows of the Music for All National Concert Festival. Few CCHS students probably even knew...

It’s that Time in March Again

68 teams heard their names called yesterday during Selection Sunday.  Those 68 teams will be playing in the NCAA men basketball tournament, colloquially known as March Madness, which will be filled with crazy upsets, historical runs, and one final champion at the end of it all.  Going into the tournament, there are several strong teams looking to make it far. Here are some good picks to cut down the nets this year: Kentucky: The most noticeable team this year is Kentucky. The Wildcats had a perfect season, going 34-0 and capping it off with a strong SEC championship win on Sunday. Many experts think Kentucky’s entire starting lineup could be drafted in the first round, and most analysts think they will coast through the entire tournament. Bottom line: Betting on Kentucky is definitely the...

Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day

Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year, Saint Patrick’s Day!  This often overlooked holiday honors the memory of the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, who legend says drove all snakes off the island.  It can be incredibly fun to participate in, so show your Irish pride and celebrate using the following tips.   Tune In To Some Irish Music Irish music is delightfully quirky and diverse, and can include both modern pop stars and more old-fashioned singers.  Check out The Script, made famous by their songs “Man Who Can’t Be Moved,” “Breakeven,” and “For the First Time.”  They will be playing at the House of Blues on March 26.  Snow Patrol, Two Door Cinema Club, and Kodaline are all excellent as well.  Kodaline’s “All I Want” is a beautiful, haunting ballad.  If you’re...

Concord Carlisle Hockey Breaks Barriers

1-4-2.  That was the record of the Concord-Carlisle men’s hockey team at the start of January. With the new year, however, the team begin to hit its stride, accumulating victories against league opponents such as North Andover, Bedford, and Boston Latin. By mid-February, those numbers were a thing of the past, and the team cruised, beating Leominster 7-2 to clinch a spot in the state tournament. The first team CC faced in the playoffs was the number 8 seed, Gloucester. It was a close game at first, but ultimately, CC pulled away, winning 2-1 and advancing to the next round. Next, the Patriots took on the number 1 seed, Tewksbury, in what was arguably the most hotly contested game of the tournament. CC had lost to them twice in the regular season, so Tewksbury was...
