Another successful year has ended for Hebron Athletics, and the Lumberjacks enjoyed triumphs in a number of areas from the beginning of the fall to the end of the spring (Check out the Trophy Case here). Hebron’s Class of 2016 will take a host of strong multi-sport athletes with them, but the future is also bright for the green and white.
There were five varsity teams who won MAISAD titles while two teams reached their respective New England tournaments and one other qualified and hosted an MPA tournament game. In the fall, the boys’ soccer team went 9-0 in MAISAD play while earning their fourth league title in five years. They also qualified for the NEPSAC Class C tournament for the fifth consecutive autumn. In the winter, Hebron’s girls’ basketball team finished with a 12-5 record, won their first MAISAD title, and hosted an MPA state tournament game as the #5 seed in Class C West.
The spring was Hebron’s most dominant season this year. The girls’ tennis team won their fifth straight league title and qualified for a New England Class D Round Robin Tournament with a 9-0 regular season record. On the softball diamond, the Lumberjacks beat Gould 22-4 in the MAISAD Championship Game to earn their second title in three years. And the boys’ lacrosse team finished with an 8-0 record in MAISAD play when they beat Hyde in the Final for their third league title in four years.
There were a number of close calls as well as four of Hebron’s other varsity teams who play in MAISAD playoffs reached the Championship Game this school year: field hockey, girls’ soccer, baseball and girls’ lacrosse. On top of that, the girls’ and boys’ track and field teams finished second on May 14th in the MAISAD Championships.
The 2016-17 school year will begin with preseason for the fall teams in early September. If you can make it to Homecoming/Reunion weekend, the Lumberjacks will be in full swing on October 7th and 8th, and the newest members of Hebron's Athletic Hall of Fame will be inducted - those Lumberjack athletes will be announced in the coming weeks.
