67

On National Girls and Women in Sport Day, the Hopkinton/Dover-Sherborn co-op hockey team took to the ice against Norwood and battled before dropping a 2-0 decision Wednesday. Senior goalie Kristin McCluskey made a number of key saves to keep the game close. The Hillers return to action Saturday night against Medfield. …

The HHS boys hockey team also fell, coming up a goal short at Westwood, 3-2. Geoff Tocco and Ronnie Shamus had the Hopkinton goals, while goalie Colin Norred made 27 saves. The teams will meet again Saturday in Marlborough. …

The boys basketball team, off for the past three weeks due to COVID cancellations and then a snow day, finally returned to the court with a game at Westwood. The Hillers dropped a 67-60 decision and will look to rebound in the rematch on Friday night. …

This past Saturday a number of HHS athletes competed in the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association invitational meet. Hopkinton technically was not sanctioned to compete, so athletes had to register themselves individually, and coaches could not attend. For the girls, Hailey Tolson posted a second-place finish in the 60 and third-place finish in the 300. Cat Dacey took sixth in the 600, Grace Joy ran a six-second personal best to take seventh in the mile, Kate Powers took sixth the shot put, and Caitlin Barnes was ninth in the 800. For the boys, Nick Brown took second in the 2 mile, Wyatt Ruff was third in the 1,000, Harrison Prucher took third in the 55 hurdles (breaking the school record in the preliminaries), and Sean Golembiewski was fourth in the 55 hurdles and tied for third in the high jump.
