Girls Lax Takes Aim at the Hock

The King Philip girl’s lacrosse team is hoping that 2015 is the year that the Warriors are able to overcome Franklin and capture the Hockomock League. Last spring KP finished second in the league to its neighbor with a 12-6 overall record and although they earned a spot in the Division 1 East Tournament it was a quick stay as the Warriors were sent packing in the first round with a 13-3- loss to Framingham.
Having lost some quality lacrosse players to graduation, coach Julie Boudreau still has a strong sophomore and junior class this fall to rely on.

KP Nine Has One Goal — Improve Game by Game

The 2015 edition of the King Philip baseball team will have to overcome some obstacles if it hopes to qualify for tourney play. Obstacles that include a lack of experience and depth.
But, if there’s a squad in the Hockomock League that can overcome long odds, it’s the Warriors. Last year, new coach Patrick Weir guided KP to a 9-11 record, missing out on the tourney by one game. Not bad for a coach who inherited a program that struggled during a season that produced a 1-19 record before his arrival.

DARE to Dream Ready for the Upcoming Year

Originally envisioned as a single-day DARE/health program for students in Grades 5 and 6, the program proved so popular that it expanded to longer sessions, and added weeks for Grades 4 and 7, too. Just last year, the program added a two-day program for Grade 3 students.

The King Philip girls’ ice hockey team recorded the best record in school history by going 17-0-3 during the regular season playing in South Eastern Massachusetts Girls Hockey League (SEMGHL). Under the guidance of head Coach Paul Lyons, the Warriors not only captured the North East Division Championship but was also the only team in the SEMGHL to go undefeated.

Town Clerk Looks Back as Race Heats Up

If you visit the KP Middle School fields on Sunday mornings, you may be surprised by the activity you see. Kids in wheelchairs, kids chasing balls pell-mell, kids blowing bubbles…it looks like chaos but it’s actually a very special program in the area. It’s The Outreach Program for Soccer, or TOPSoccer.
TOPSoccer was developed for children with physical and/or mental disabilities, and furthers the goals of US Youth Soccer to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth of children through the sport of soccer at all levels.
