The Bulldogs have dominated the Hockomock League over the past two decades.
There are only a handful of high school teams that dominate their sports, year after year. One of these special groups of athletes is the Canton High School Field Hockey team. The Bulldogs have dominated the Hockomock League over the past two decades. The team has captured South Sectional titles, including in each of the last two years, and captured the State Title in 2004 and 2006, and in 2007 losing in overtime in the State Title Game.
