Foxborough beat Hockomock League foe Milford, 16-3 at State Hospital Field Monday to push its record to 5-0.
Foxborough boys’ lacrosse coach Matt Noone will be the first to tell you it doesn’t matter what your team does in April as much as it does in May, but Monday’s 16-3 victory over Milford was a statement to the rest of the Hockomock League. Beware of the Warriors. “We are trying to establish ourselves in the Hock,” Noone said. “It seems like the Davenport [Division] is the strength of the league this year and that’s not typically the case so we just wanted to make a statement against Milford.” Foxborough (5-0, 3-0) was led offensively by Tyler Ames’ six goals. “Tyler has got some great numbers and he’s our general out there on offense,” Noone said. “Him and [Alex] Pacetti.” Pacetti and Matt Stamatov each added three goals on a day that seven…

The Foxborough High School basketball team recognized its six seniors before Wednesday's game vs. Milford.
Prior to Wednesday’s game against Milford, the 2012-13 Hockomock League Davenport Division champions, Foxborough honored its six seniors. Alfred Henriquez, Nick DiTullio, Nolan Clagg, Josh Patkin, Brian Ellard and Alex Pacitti were recognized at half-court in front of family, friends and teammates. Patkin, a 2012-13 captain and three-year varsity player, became one of the most deadly shooters Foxborough has seen in many years. His shooting ability was on full display as a junior when Patkin scored 22 points on seven 3-pointers against a state ranked Stoughton team and in a 29-point outburst earlier this season against Bridgewater Raynham. While his shooting has brought much attention, it has been his hard work and leadership that made him …

Foxborough overcame a 35-27 deficit at halftime to beat Mansfield, 57-53 Friday.
Leading 55-53 with 31 seconds remaining in regulation, the Foxborough High School girls’ basketball team needed to make a stop. A usually stingy Warriors’ defense was having an off night Friday but managed to string together enough stops in the second half, underlined by their effort in the final half minute to grind out a 57-53 victory over rival Mansfield. “They put the pedal to the medal and decided they wanted to win this game,” said Foxborough head coach Lisa Downs. With that determination came the reward of Foxborough earning a MIAA State Tournament berth – the Warriors first since the 2010-11 season and Lisa Downs’ first as a varsity head basketball coach. “I feel like we can breathe a little bit more and not always feel like we …

The former Foxborough High School baseball standout replaces Bill Sittig as the program’s head coach.
The Foxborough High School baseball team has turned to a former captain and team MVP to coach the Warriors in 2013. FHS Athletic Director Caitlin Brown has named Chris Sullivan head coach of the baseball program, replacing Bill Sittig, who announced in December he would not be returning for his third season. The Boston Herald first reported the news on Twitter. Sullivan has a lengthy and impressive baseball resume both as a player and a coach. The longtime RBI Baseball Academy employee most recently coached the RBI Hawks 15U team. The academy congratulated Sullivan on its Facebook page Saturday. “Congratulations to longtime RBI employee and the RBI Hawks 15U coach Chris Sullivan on being named head varsity baseball coach at his alma mater …

Foxborough High baseball team to face Stoughton in season opener this afternoon.
Despite some uncertainty at a few positions, the Foxboro High School baseball team is in a better place than last season. With a year under his belt, coach Billy Sittig has noticed that the bad habits that existed in his first year are not around at the start of his second year at the helm. “We’re excited. We got most of our lineup back,” Sittig said. “You can see their confidence is the biggest thing. You can see that’s improved.” After a season of multiple one and two-run losses, that confidence is going to be needed to get those close wins that evaded the team last year. “We were in a lot of tight games that young teams don’t really win, but I think we’re a more experienced team and I think we win those games this year,” Sittig. On the …

The Foxborough High softball team returns with a mix of returning players and new varsity call ups.
Even with a couple of holes to fill, the Foxborough Higj softball team is showing talent in places where is was not before. With a team of half returners and half freshmen and JV call ups, head coach Lauren Cucinotta has been impressed with what she has seen early on. “Even the younger players coming in you see them a little bit above the levels we were at before,” Cucinotta said. Going away from the bunt and run that dominated the team’s offense last season, improved hitting has allowed the Warriors to do a little more at the plate with less emphasis on small ball. “We’ll probably do a mixture, we got a lot of good hitters this year,” Cucinotta said. “We do have a few bunters, but we’re focusing on hitting a lot more this year.” Part of …

With Kelsie Morahan, Abby Tepper, and Hannah Walsh all scoring hattricks, the Warriors defeated Bellingham, 20-4, to give head coach Britney Jamison her first career win.
There wasn’t much more that Foxborough High girls' lacrosse coach Britney Jamison could of asked for in her first game at the helm of the girls’ lacrosse team, a 20-4 win over Bellingham at home, Friday afternoon. With three players scoring hat tricks and nine different scorers overall, there were few complainents from Jamison after her first win as head coach. “It's a great confidence booster for myself and the team. They worked really hard all week,” Jamison said. With a new coach, it's been a fresh start for the program. With better conditioning and focus, the team is ready to produce results for their new coach. “The girls work harder at practice and take it more serious than last year,” senior captain Kelsie Morahan said. “I feel …

Aiden Campbell had a goal for the Warriors, but it was not enough as Medway beat Foxborough, 6-1, in the preliminary round of the MIAA Division 3 South Sectional tournament.
For the first time since 2008, the Foxborough Warriors had a chance to play postseason hockey. Entering the MIAA Division 3 South Sectional tournament seeded at No. 23, it was not going to be an easy task to take down No. 10 Medway in the preliminary round. For a Warrior team that only won five games last season, getting to the tournament was an accomplishment in itself. Unable to keep up with the Medway Mustangs, the Warriors’ season ended with a 6-1 defeat at the Bridgewater Ice Arena Wednesday. The Mustangs’ offense was too much for the Warriors as both Jake O’Rourke and Tim King had a two goal game. O’Rourke initially put the Mustangs up 1-0 at 7:15 of the opening period with a shot right in front of the net with the assist going to …

Ally Perry led the way for the Warriors with 17 points and nine rebounds. Alee Leteria had 19 points for the Hillers while Lindsey Doucette had 26 points.
Right from the start of the game, it was going to be an uphill battle for the Foxborough High girls' basketball team if they were to win their Foxborough Winter Classic finals matchup against the Hopkinton Hillers. Getting to the finals with an overtime win against Ursuline Academy of Dedham, it was going to take more to get past a team with one of the Tri-Valley League’s best scorers in Lindsey Doucette. “We knew it was going to be a really really tough game. We just tried to focus on eight minutes at a time,” Foxborough head coach Lisa Downs said. Controlling the game from start to finish, the Hopkinton Hillers (15-5) won the Foxborough Winter Classic by beating the Foxborough Warriors (3-16), 70-44. The 14-3 run by the Hillers to …
