Video Segment: Hillers Boys Basketball takes Down Wayland in 1st Round

In-front of a packed house at Wayland High School, the Hillers took down the Warriors 53-48 in the Central Division 2 Quarter Finals. The 1st quarter was a good offensive battle. Warriors Sophomore Forward Joey Luchetti (17 points) knocked down three 3 point field goals in the 1st to help Wayland to a 17-13 lead heading into the 2nd quarter.

The Hillers defense completely shut down the Wayland offense in the 2nd quarter and took Luchetti out of the game. Luchetti went scoreless in the 2nd quarter. Fortunately for Wayland, the Hillers offense had some struggles of their own but outscored the Warriors 10-5. Hopkinton led 23-22 at half.

The 2nd half evolved around great defense and foul trouble for both teams. Wayland hit only 2 field goals in the 3rd quarter but the Hillers did not pull too far away only knocking down 3 field goals of their own. Hopkinton outscored Wayland in the 3rd 10-8 to head into the final 8 minutes on top 43-30. Wayland knocked down only 8 field goals in the entire 2nd half, the Hillers did not do much better but early foul trouble allowed Hopkinton to knock down 13 of 20 free throws in the 2nd half. The free throws gave the Hillers just enough for the 53-48 victory.

Junior Matt Locke led the way striking for 19 points and took over in a game that Wayland almost totally shut Hopkinton down from the low blocks. The 12 and 9 5th seeded Hopkinton Hillers will meet up with 1st seeded 18 and 3 Marlboro Panthers in the Semi-Finals. Marlboro beat Medfield in the 1st round 68-47. Wayland finishes 11 and 8 overall. Hopkinton followed with a tough, well fought out 55-40 loss to Marlborough in the semi-finals, highlights will be posted soon.

“In the four years I’ve been a cheer dad and I can’t remember a season more difficult, more trying, than one the Hopkinton Hiller Cheerleaders are having this season. There have been injuries and of course the snow has made things very difficult (disrupting practices and tournaments), but still these wonderful athletes find a way to win. The Hopkinton Hiller Cheerleaders went to the South regionals hoping to do well. They went up against some very good cheer teams, the best of southern part of the state. Only one team managed a higher score than this wonderful group of athletes.

Expect Your Teen to Strive for Excellence

Sometimes teens rush from chore to chore or project to project. Their goal is to finish a task. That's great, but it's important for your teen to do his best, too.
Help your teen learn to take pride in what he has done. If he prepares a meal, make sure you say, "It's good to enjoy what you made, isn't it?"

If your teen shows his creativity in a way that can be displayed, take the opportunity to display it. If possible, frame his art and hang it where everyone can enjoy it.

Let your teen see that you also stop to enjoy your own successes.

Congratulations go out to the Hopkinton High Cheerleaders for winning their fourth TVL title in a row (no other Hopkinton Hiller Cheer team has ever accomplish this feat).

This season has been especially difficult for the Hopkinton cheerleaders for a couple of reasons. All this snow has forced schedule changes and missed practices. Also, several injuries have forced teammates to the sidelines. Still, they’ve been able to overcome all these obstacles and continue their winning ways.

Send a Different Message

Your teen has brought home a poor grade. "You could do better," you say. But he has probably heard something else. Students often hear "you could do better" as "you're not good enough" or even as "I can't make my Mom and Dad happy."
That doesn't mean you have to praise him for a bad grade. But here's an approach that may get the result you're looking for.

Start by finding something positive to say. Then ask whether he is satisfied with the paper, test or project. Does he think the grade he earned reflects the effort he put in? What might he do differently another time?
