The winter sports season at Nauset Regional High has come to an end. Here are some end-of-season highlights.
Boys basketball: After finishing the regular season with a record of 11 wins and 10 losses the Warriors drew a first-round matchup with the Milton Wildcats in the Division 2 South sectionals. The Warriors lost 64-47.
This season senior Bobby Joy reached the milestone of entering the 1,000-point club. Joy was honored for the achievement at a home game in early February.
Girls basketball: The Warriors had a strong year, finishing the regular season with a record of 15-7. The team opened the playoffs with a 12-0 start against Dartmouth in the first round of the Division 2 South sectionals. Nauset led for nearly the entire game before finishing with a 58-48 win.
Senior Skyeler Sandison led the team with 19 points while juniors Avery Burns and Ashley Ross contributed 16 points and 13 points respectively.
“Complete team victory, every player contributed to the win, including great support from the bench,” Head Coach John Piemontese said.
The ninth-seeded Warriors then faced the number-one seed Norwood Mustangs in the quarterfinals and lost 57-33.
Sandison again led the team with 11 points followed by junior Korin Mereste with 10.
Piemontese said the team had an excellent season and played beyond expectations from the start.
Top scorers Sandison and Sonny Green were the only seniors on this year’s squad, which included four freshmen, so the Warriors are looking forward to next year.
Girls hockey: The Cape Cod Furies finished the regular season with a 3-0 win against the Martha’s Vineyarders, improving the team’s record to 8-8-5. That was good enough to earn the Furies their first playoff spot in team history.
The Furies faced the Woburn Tanners in the first round of the Division 1 playoffs and suffered a 4-0 loss. The team will look to seven returning underclassmen as well as four juniors next season.
Girls indoor track: Senior Monique Malcolm and freshman Krystyna Constantine competed in the New England Indoor Track Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston over the weekend.
Constantine broke her own school record in a 55-meter hurdle trial run with a time of 8.31 seconds. She finished fifth in New England in the 55-meter hurdle final with a time of 8.38 seconds.
Malcolm placed sixth in New England in the 55-meter dash finals with a time of 7.34 seconds.
The girls and boys indoor track teams combined to break 14 school records this season.
Co-ed cheerleading: Nauset Cheer placed second in both the Blackhawk Invitational on Feb. 27 and the Wildcat Invitational on Feb. 29.
The Warriors will compete in the Game Day State competition on Sunday, March 8 at Shepherd Regional High School.
Chess: Nauset Chess finished first in the South Coast Interscholastic Chess League with a win over Wareham on Feb. 27. The team was led by Captain Michael Whitney and teammate Tak Decker, who recorded two wins each. The team will next compete in the playoff for the championship against Martha’s Vineyard in mid-March.
Figure skating: The Nauset figure skating team is hosting the NEICC Challenge Cup competition at the Charles Moore Arena in Orleans on Saturday, March 7. The competition runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Skaters from 13 high schools from Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts will compete. Nauset is currently in second place in the series of competitions, according to Coach Tamsyn Shaw.
