KP Softball Squad Aiming For Tourney Success

The King Philip softball team had a 16-4 record last year but was eliminated from tourney play in its opening matchup, bowing to Weymouth after compiling an 11-game winning streak to end the regular season.
The Warriors may have been too optimistic or over-confident then but Norm Beauchemin, KP’s third-year coach, firmly believes that several key ingredients for playoff success must be prevalent if his Warriors are to advance deep and be contenders for a sectional or state crown.

Remembrances and Awareness at Walk of Tears

On a bright, clear Sunday morning in early May, over 100 King Philip and Franklin High School students took part in the annual SADD Walk of Tears. Held in memory of Maura Howard, a graduate of KP High School, and Amy Callaghan, a graduate of Franklin High School, both victims of drunk driving, the Walk raised over $2000 for SADD programs and scholarships at the two high schools.

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

Since 1993, the towns of Wrentham, Plainville, and Norfolk have come together to provide children in Grades 3 to 7 a safe, fun, and positive summer experience that teaches the importance of making good decisions.
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.

KP Girls Hockey Makes School History

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.
Unfortunately, after being named the number one seed in the MIAA Division 2 Tournament, KP fell to Winchester in the first round 4-1.

Town Clerk Looks Back as Race Heats Up

Elections are quickly approaching for Wrentham, and with them will come a new Town Clerk. After twenty years on the job, Carol Mollica retired at the end of January and certainly left big shoes to fill. Her career has been filled with challenges and changes for the town and she has served on numerous committees, including the Town Hall Building committee, responsible for creating the beautiful Town Hall standing now.
