A twin win for youth track program: Hull High School Class of 2015 twin sisters Molly and Maddy McNamara have been appointed as co-head coaches for the Grade 6 and 7 Youth Track program. Both coaches were outstanding athletes at Hull High and competed on the Bridgewater State University track and field team. “They have excelled at every level of competition and bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and ‘Hull kid pride’ to the program,” said Athletic Director Connor Duhaime. “Both coaches have a love for the sport and know of all the benefits that can be had by participating in track and field. They have the ability to teach the basics of the sport or more advance techniques, but they know at the end of the day, it’s all about the kids and them having fun. The Hull High School athletic department welcomes Molly and Maddy to the Pirate coaching family.” The coaches are elementary school teachers (first and third grade) in Brockton and live in Hull. The team is joining the South Shore Middle School track and field league and will compete against surrounding towns such as Marshfield, Abington, Pembroke, and Hanover. The meets will be held at Silver Lake, Abington, Marshfield and Hanover. The season runs for about five weeks and will conclude with a small school meet in June. Kids will compete in running, throwing, sprinting and jumping competitions. Parents of a 6th or 7th grade child who currently attends the Memorial Middle School should have received and email on the process to register. The Google form also is on the Hull Pirates Twitter account at the very top.
