In boys lacrosse, Freshman Connor McCarthy led WH with 4 goals as the Panthers picked up their first win of the season, 7-2 at home against Quincy/North Quincy on Saturday. The breakout and middies both showed that they have come a long way since the beginning of the year, and the very difficult schedule is beginning to pay dividends for the Panthers. Freshmen goalie Ty Galewski was outstanding in net. WH looks forward to taking on Cardinal Spellman at home Monday 5/17/21 at 4PM.

The Panthers showed their grit and talent by digging out of that hole to tie the game and hold off a late attack by PS with a save by Ava Barry. The defense improved greatly this game with solid performances from Joli Flamos, returning from injury and Ava Melia. Draw control was by Maddy Allen and Ella Nagle was key to the team's success.
