Tewksbury girls top Haverhill, Bedford and Central Catholic to qualify for 15th straight state tournament berth.
The Tewksbury High girls field hockey team pulled off a "Perfect Storm" of a weekend, whipping three straight opponents and qualfiying for their 15th consecutive MIAA state tournament appearance in the process. TMHS beat Haverhill, 5-1 on Friday, topped Bedford, 2-1 on Saturday and extracted a measure of revenge against Central Catholic with a 2-1 win on Sunday, improving its record to 9-4-2 overall and earning enough points to qualify for what is becoming its annual trip to the state tournament. "We had a pretty good weekend," said Tewksbury coach Pat Ryser. "Especially with the win over Central. We owed them one." Central had tripped up the Redmen three weeks earlier, 2-1, in a game that Ryser thought the Redmen should have won. But on …
TMHS records first winning record since 1993; wins first MVC Div. 2 Championship since 2006.
As early as last spring, Tewksbury High boys cross country coach Peter Molloy suspected he had a group of distance runners on his hands who were capable of doing great things. Brian Amaral ran a personal best 4:41.46 in the mile at the Merrimack Valley Conference championship meet last May. Kip Horahan ran a personal best 4:53.35 that day. Cory Thomas clocked a PR in the two-mile in 10:34.76. Brendan Blair and Tim Conklin also recorded late season PRs in the mile as well. "We kind of started talking about it in the spring," Molloy said. "I started saying, 'If you guys do your work this summer, imagine what cross country could be like next fall.' And you could tell they were all about it." The end result was a season full of milestones for …

TMHS boys get first ever win over Central Catholic; Christina Dick wins again; volleyball team loses to Central
It's becoming a season of monumental wins for the Tewksbury High athletic program this fall, and the TMHS boys cross country didn't want to be left out of the action. Led by junior iron man Brian Amaral's second place overall finish, the Redmen beat Central Catholic, 26-29, on Wednesday, to raise their record to 4-3 on the season. It was the cross country team's first dual meet win over Central since 2006, and only the second time in coach Peter Molloy's eight-year tenure that Tewksbury has topped Central. "A big day, just a big day," said Molloy of his team's effort. "You could probably count on one hand the number of times a Tewksbury cross country team ever beat Central. It was a real big day."

Christina Dick tops field as TMHS girls post first win; Amaral takes first in TMHS boys team's sweep of Dracut, Lawrence.
It's impossible for one runner to single-handedly win a high school cross country dual meet, but it would be difficult to find anyone who set the tone for her team more emphatically than Christina Dick did Wednesday afternoon. Dick, the senior captain of the previously-winless Tewksbury High girls cross country team, smashed her previous personal best time on TMHS' 2.8-mile Livingston Street course by an amazing 46 seconds in leading her team to its first dual meet win of the season, 15-50 over Lawrence. Dick completely ran away from all 40 other girls in this tri-meet race, crossing the finish line in 18:09, a full 44 seconds ahead of the second place finisher from Dracut. Dick's previous best time over the same course was 18:53 two weeks…
