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.

“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.

Video Segment: Hopkinton and Greece Form Strong Relationship through Boston Marathon

It is believed by many the name of the athletic long-distance endurance race, otherwise known as the "marathon",comes from the legend of a Greek runner who was sent from Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon back on 490bc.The most famous marathon today began in 1897 and is held on Patriots day. The Boston Marathon which since 1924 has started in Hopkinton and finished in Copley Square in Boston. Greece and Hopkinton have built and maintained a strong connection through the marathon.

State Senator Karen Spilka spoke of the strong relationship at the 300th Anniversary opening ceremony referring to Marathon, Greece as a sister city to Hopkinton. "Every April we display to the entire world, it's not just a Massachusetts event anymore but it's the whole world, our community pride and shared values of perseverance, collaboration and the human connection when we host the Boston Marathon." Senator Spilka spoke of her pride and honor in developing a relationship with Greece and spoke of the friendly bond formed with Greece officials. "Every time I go by and see the statue near Weston Nurseries, it's wonderful to see the symbol of the spirit of the marathon and all that it stands for and our towns connection to Greece."
