For the second consecutive year, the Tewksbury High football team is champion of the Merrimack Valley Small Conference. Thanks to a 34-14 beat-down on Methuen Friday night, the Redmen improved to 5-4 overall and 4-0 in the MVC Small. “No one can take that away from you,” Aylward told his team. “But go and take this next game too." After facing Dracut next week and Wilmington on Thanksgiving, Tewksbury will represent their conference in postseason play. “We get the privilege to go and represent our league, but it’s also a responsibility,” said Tewksbury head coach Brian Aylward. Aylward and his Redmen are focused on next week, and not the playoffs. “It’s not going to be a pretty couple weeks if we can’t execute and continue to get better,” …

Tewksbury High girls track team finishes third at the Merrimack Valley Conference championship meet.
Don't ask Tewksbury High track coach John Byrnes to single out his team's top performer at Saturday night's Merrimack Valley Conference track and field championship meet. There were too many stars wearing Tewksbury uniforms to count. Junior speedster Jess Bridle won two conference championships, senior thrower Andrea Caprio smashed the meet record in the javelin and senior All-American Leanne Tucker returned to form and successfully defended her 800-meter title as Tewksbury finished in third place with 108 points behind Andover (153) and Central Catholic (126). "It was a very, very good meet for us," Byrnes said. "Usually in a big meet like this some things go your way and some things don't. But just about everything went our way this …
Richard Kirby's record-setting performance in the 400-meter hurdles leads to strong Tewksbury showing.
Tewksbury High all-purpose man Richard Kirby had his sights set on two possible first place finishes at the Merrimack Valley Conference track and field championships in Lowell Saturday night. So when the first opportunity -- in the pole vault -- didn't bear fruit, Kirby took it out on the competition. The senior sprinter/hurdler/jumper/vaulter blew away the field in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles, setting a new meet record with a time of 56.34 seconds, to lead Tewksbury to a fourth place finish in the meet. "He and I were both a little disappointed in his pole vault results," TMHS coach Steve Levine said after Kirby took fourth in that event at 12'0". "But I told him to shake it off, because he had another event to run. And he did. He…
Tewksbury High track star wins both 400 and 100 at MVC Championship meet.
Tewksbury High junior sprinter Jess Bridle attempted the near-impossible and then went out and accomplished it Saturday night, taking first place in two individual running events at the Merrimack Valley Conference championships at Lowell's Cawley Stadium. Bridle won the her third consecutive MVC 400-meter dash championship in 59.30 seconds and came back less than 30 minutes later to run the 100-meter dash, winning that event in 12.74 seconds and making history in the process. "You never get a double winner (in two track events) at the league meet," said Tewksbury High coach John Byrnes. "This is the first year that running two individual events has been allowed at the MVC meet, but the schedule makes it so difficult that no other …

Meeting with DCL athletic directors scheduled for Monday has been postponed as MVC athletic directors circle the wagons.
The engagement is off before the wedding date could even be set. Tewksbury High athletic director Brian Hickey confirmed on Thursday that the TMHS athletic program's application for admission into the Dual County League has been placed "on hold" for at least the time being. Hickey confirmed that a meeting scheduled for next Monday, May 23, between the DCL athletic directors and the athletic directors from the four school systems invited to join the DCL, has been postponed indefinitely. On Monday, the DCL invited just four of the 10 teams that had applied for admission into the league to join the DCL in time for the 2013 season. But reaction to the invitation of just four schools -- Tewksbury, Chelmsford, Billerica and North Andover -- has …

Tewksbury coaches react with mixed emotions to Dual County League acceptance.
The reality of Tewksbury High's impending move to the Dual County League started to sink in around Tewksbury High on Tuesday, and reactions were somewhat restrained in the face of numerous questions surrounding the move. Athletic directors from the 10 existing DCL schools will meet with athletic directors from the four new invitees -- Tewksbury, North Andover, Chelmsford and Billerica -- on May 23 to begin discussing how the transition will take place. "It's still a huge process for us in trying to figure it all out and make sure it's the right move and the right fit," said TMHS Athletic Director Brian Hickey. "We cleared the first hurdle but there's still the matter of an interview and, on our part, we need to analyze the decision and …

Tewksbury High expected to accept invitation and leave sever longtime affiliation with Merrimack Valley Conference.
Westford high principal Jim Antonelli this afternoon announced that four schools have been invited to take the next step toward leaving their respective leagues and joining the Dual County League in time for the 2013 seasons. Representatives from Tewksbury, Billerica, and Chelmsford from the Merrimack Valley Conference and North Andover from the Cape Ann league will meet with DCL athletic directors on May 23 to begin planning the transition. Although Antonelli termed next week's meetings "interviews," the four schools invited were narrowed down from a list of 10 applicants. Next week's meetings are believed to be little more than a formality in the long-discussed move to the DCL for Tewksbury and the three other schools. "We felt like …
