The spring sports season has begun its annual fade into summer. And before we look forward to the traditional summer sports, it’s worth one more lookback at the successful Hull High School spring season by recognizing the league All-Stars whose names were announced this week.
The most encouraging news was that three of the five spring teams were chosen for the South Shore League Team Sportsmanship Award; the baseball team, boys’ lacrosse team, and girls’ lacrosse team each took home that honor. The girls’ softball team took second place in the same category.
The individual team All-Stars are as follows: Ryan Healey and Sean Walsh for boys’ lacrosse; Grace Grosso and Nina Tiani for girls’ lacrosse; Max Iorio and Ben Olivieri for baseball; Bella Hendrickson for softball; and Matt McCluskey, Maeve Donohue, and Mattie Tuchman for outdoor track and field.
HHS in Bay State Games
Several Hull High School soccer players will play for the Southeast region team at the annual Bay State Games. The tournament will take place on July 9-11 at Veterans Soccer Complex in Waltham. The members of the girls’ team are Nina Tiani, Bridget Fleming, Veronica Fleming, Sarah Duran, Fallon Ryan, Mattie Tuchman, and Elly Thomas. Jack Burke will be playing for the boys’ team.
Babe Ruth Baseball recap
The Dodgers team, which was comprised of all the Hull players, finished the season with a 7-6-1 record and was eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the eventual champion Cardinals, 4-2. Five Hull players were selected for various All-Star awards. Isaiah Green, Teddy Hipp, and Henry Buchleitner made the 13-year-old All-Star team; Isaiah Green was also the co-MVP of the All-Star Game. Ken Autio and Bran James were also league All-Stars and helped the Hingham-Hull All-Stars beat the Cohasset All-Stars. Hull’s Eric Rickard was the coach of the winning squad.
More summer baseball continues next week with the state district tournament and travel teams. Rickard will coach the 15-year-old district team, and Bran James will play on the team. A COVID Cup Tournament is scheduled for the end of the summer.
