The victory clinched the MVC Division 2 championship for the Redmen and capped a perfect 4-0 league season. "We don't really place a ton of emphasis on our dual meet record, but to be able to come through this three-year period without having a track and post a 15-0 record over that time is a credit to all the kids and the parents and coaches in the program," said Head Coach John Byrnes.

Senior Jess Bridle wins Division 2 state 400 meter dash championship, sophomore Sara Semenza finishes second
Just when it seemed as though Jess Bridle had done all there was to do in a Tewksbury High track uniform, the TMHS senior speedster added yet another accomplishment to her long list of achievements by taking first place in the 400 meter dash at the MIAA Division 2 State Championship meet Sunday afternoon at Whitman-Hanson Regional High School. Bridle had already done more in her four-year career at TMHS than any other female track athlete, winning 10 different Merrimack Valley Conference championships, six individually and four on relay teams. "You could try to squeeze Jessie's (track) resume onto one page, but even if you typed it single spaced in a 10-point font, it wouldn't fit," TMHS coach John Byrnes said.

Morrissey's putting together a great season, and Schultz has proven to be very versatile between all three sprints," said Coach John …

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.

In four years of running track at Tewksbury High School, Jess Bridle has assembled a list of accomplishments that would rival any other track star in TMHS history.
