Tewksbury baseball loaded the bases in the top of the seventh, but eventually fell to the Wildcats, 3-1, in its opening tilt of the year.
With first pitch at 10 a.m. on Monday, the Wilmington baseball team’s bats woke up early. Unfortunately for Tewksbury High School, their bats didn’t follow suit. Tewksbury batters struck out 15 times in their season opener as the Redmen couldn’t bounce back after the Wildcats took a 3-0 first inning lead. Despite the sluggish start, the Redmen found themselves with the opportunity to escape with a win late in the game. Tewksbury put on two runners in the sixth inning and loaded the bases with two outs in the seventh inning, but couldn’t push home the tying runs. “We left too many guys on base and struck out too many times,” said head coach Ron Drouin. “It wasn’t a train wreck. We’ve played a lot worse baseball games and won, and we’ve …

Redmen are eliminated in first round of the MIAA state tournament, falling to Danvers, 9-3.

Girls team posts just four wins but makes tournament via "Sullivan Rule."
Lacrosse The Tewksbury High boys and girls lacrosse teams will both be in action this week when the State Tournaments get started. The boys squad qualified for the Division 2 East Tournament with an 11-9 record. The girls posted just four wins this season (4-11) but qualified for the Division 2 North Tournament via the Sullivan Rule. That rule states that for a Division 2 Team like Tewksbury, only games played against Division 2 or 3 teams are counted toward the 50 percent victory threshold needed to make the tournament. In other words, all losses against Division 1 teams are tossed out. Both Redmen teams will face difficult first-round matchups. The boys are seeded No. 29 in the 32-team D-2 East Regional (combining teams from the North …
