Our Whiz Kids This Week -- The State Champion Tewksbury High Redmen
Resilience plus determination equal success.
Tewksbury High Varsity Hockey Team
Accomplishments: The Redmen completed an amazing 2010-2011 season by capturing the Massachusetts Division 2 Hockey Championship with a 2-1 win over Franklin High on Sunday at the TD Garden.
Reasons For Their Awesomness: Almost too many to count.
- A terrific coach in Derek Doherty
- A stalwart team defense that shutdown opposing teams throughout the season
- A wall between the pipes in the person of goalie Niko Cunha.
- A high-powered offense led by Ryan Doherty, Frank Mazzei and Mark and Derek Petti.
