Team will be the latest addition to the MVC/DCL Conference.
Tewksbury High has a new building and a new principal -- now comes a new athletic program. TMHS is making preparations for its first season of girls' ice hockey. Actually, the Redmen will be joining forces with longtime MVC rival Methuen High to form a co-op team to compete in the MVC/DCL conference. Methuen is just starting a program too, so they are in the same boat we are," said TMHS Athletic Director Brian Hickey. "We're excited. We've been good partners in the MVC for years." Co-op programs have become commonplace in high school hockey, as a means of maintaining the health of a program while keeping costs down. In Methuen High, Tewksbury has a partner that owns and operates an ice arena on its own campus, which will make the program …

Winthrop eliminates Tewksbury High Hockey team from MIAA state tournament, 4-0.
Unfortunately for the Tewksbury High hockey team, the 2011-2012 season ended just the way it started. On a down note. The defending Division 2 State Champion Redmen got stung early and never recovered Tuesday night, suffering a 4-0 loss to Winthrop High in their opening round MIAA state tournament game at the Stoneham Arena. Winthrop forward Matt Todisco scored what proved to be the game-winning goal just 1:09 into the first period, effectively knocking the young TMHS team right off its game plan, and things never got better after that. Two second period goals put the game out of reach and a fourth goal in the third period added insult to injury as Tewksbury's dreams of making another strong post-season run were ruined before the Redmen …

TMHS girls blow out Dracut, 54-34; Petti nets two as hockey team ties Boston Latin; track teams show well at Freshman-Sophomore meet.
If you want to get an idea of how dramatically the Tewksbury High girls basketball team has improved over the last six weeks, just roll your calendar back to December 16th, when the Redmen, mired in an 0-6 start, lost a turnover-plagued, 48-40 decision to Dracut High on their own home court. On Friday night, that very same group of TMHS girls stormed into Dracut's house and slapped the unsuspecting Middies around in their own gym, taking a 54-34 victory. It was Tewksbury's fifth win in its last seven games. "We're playing way better, overall, as a team," head coach Mark Bradley said after Friday night's game. "The confidence is just getting better and better and better and that's nice to see. It was a total team effort tonight. It was a …

Tewksbury High hockey team shuts down Latin's high scoring offense.
For Tewksbury High hockey coach Derek Doherty, the recipe for stopping Boston Latin's high-powered offense on Sunday night was simple. Hit 'em early and often, and when they get back up, hit 'em again. "That's the game plan," Doherty said after his Redmen outmuscled the undefeated Latin Wolfpack and played them to a 1-1 tie at the Breakaway Ice Center. "You know if you play a physical game, guys aren't going to want to touch the puck. And if they don't want to touch the puck, they can't score goals." Latin, which came into the game with a 5-0 record, had scored 27 goals in its first five games, an average of over five per game. But the Redmen knocked the Wolfpack off the puck time and time again, refusing to let them get their offensive …
