In the final dual meet of the season for Foxborough and the Warriors fell on Senior Day to the Canton Bulldogs 91-68 in the boys meet and 91-77 in the girls meet. With three members of the girls team competing for the YMCA’s Hay Lightning Team earlier in the day, the Warriors went into the meet with members of the team already with as many as five events under their belts. “It wasn’t as close as I thought it would be but I thought for the circumstances we did well,” Foxborough Head Coach Kiley Macie said. Despite the meet earlier in the day, Maddie Fletcher still managed to go 4-0 with wins in the 200 medley relay (2:29.88), 400 freestyle relay (4:18.31), 200 freestyle (2:14.38), and 100 breaststroke (1:17.87).

The Warriors can't handle the Bulldogs' ground game in the 38-24 defeat.
After competing in a quad meet over the weekend, Canton High Wrestling Coach Brian Caffelle had one request for this team against Foxborough and that was to be more aggresive. “We just stressed that we just need to be a little bit more aggressive and the kids did well,” said Caffelle. With Canton competing with one of the best wrestlers in the 113 pound division in the state, Foxborough coach Jim Fraser moved everyone up a weight class in an effort to minimize the damage. Even with the move, the Warriors still lost to the Bulldogs 38-24. The Bulldogs set the tone with two pins in the first two matches. Erika Snow defeated Derek Hass via pin in the second period of the 106-pound match. It didn’t get any better in the 113-pound match as …

She said moving her body to direct the ball in a certain way is a completely different than the physical activity of swimming. While swimming focuses on self…

Holidays for college freshmen mean exams, final papers and lots of late night cram sessions.
I am officially all stressed out! Final papers (two ten-pagers are required,) exams and projects are all due within these next two weeks. That are all that is left of this semester! It is weird to think that I have almost completed a full semester, as a freshmen in college. Where does the time go? There is so much left for me to do in this semester that I feel as if winter break will simply never come. It is also very ironic that I am all stressed out, considering one of my liberal education courses is named, “All Stressed Out”. The course was created to help freshman develop time and stress management skills, but, this class is STRESSING me out! Plus, I have to do some shopping for the holidays, send some cards, wrap those gifts and …
