L to R: Ludwig, McCarthy, Boschetto, Orlandella
Marlboro – It was a fitting tribute to the seniors as the Warriors’ 5-1 victory over a much improved Lowell team on Senior Night clinches at least a share of the Merrimack Valley/Dual County League III title for the Warriors. If Weston ties or defeats Cambridge next Wednesday, the Warriors will win the league championship outright. Prior to the game, the Warriors honored seniors Christian Boschetto, Andrew Ludwig, Scott McCarthy, and Joe Orlandella for their contributions to the program.

The Wayland boys varsity team blanked Weston 7-0 to win the 1st Annual Post Road Cup and secure their spot in the playoffs for the 7th consecutive year. Senior goaltender Andrew Ludwig recorded his 10th career shutout to tie for the school record.

From the Wayland Town Crier:
Athlete Profile: Spagnuolo is creative force on ice for WarCats
Junior forward Lisa Spagnuolo is a leader for a rebuilding Wayland/Weston girls hockey program, scoring 10 goals this season.
NAME: Lisa Spagnuolo
School/team: Wayland/Weston girls hockey
The lowdown: Spagnuolo has been playing hockey “since I could walk,” as she recalls her father setting up a home rink in the back yard during the winter and her and her brother skating around. Read more.
Athlete Profile: Grand Finale for Wayand’s Late-Blooming Jones
Wayland’s senior center Bobby Jones emerged this past season as the leading scorer for the Div. 3 North champion boys hockey team.
NAME: Bobby Jones
The lowdown: For three years, Jones waited for his time to come, and then made the absolute most of it. The centerman was a seldom-used third-line player for the Warriors for the first three years of his varsity hockey career, playing behind standouts Lucas Bastarache, and Scott Carvalho. But coming into his senior season, with only 14 players expected to be on the varsity roster, Jones knew his time had come, and hit the weight room and off-season conditioning work hard, and played as much as he could over the off-season to prepare him for big-time minutes.

Boys Hockey: Winning Culture at Wayland
Wayland’s boys hockey program may lack depth, but not talent, as the Warriors finished the winter with their third sectional championship in six seasons.
By Mike Bigelin
Just call Rian Murray the hockey prophet, because the guy proved this year he sure knows what he’s talking about.
Just as the season was kicking off, Murray understood his Wayland varsity boys hockey team was facing a daunting task with a roster of only 14 players. But he also said at the time that, if he can keep his team healthy, come tournament time they could be a dangerous team. Read more.
Girls Hockey: Focus is on the Future for the WarCats
Despite a winless record this winter, the rebuilding Wayland-Weston girls hockey co-op team gained valuable experience.
By Rick Rendell
From the start, there was no question this was going to be another rebuilding season for the Wayland-Weston co-op girls hockey program. It was destined to be that way with just four upperclassmen on the roster, including just one senior with varsity playing experience, from last year’s team that finished 2-16-1. Read more.
