On Saturday representatives of the boys and girls swim teams competed at the south sectional tournament held at Milford High School.

Ruairi Mullin placed seventh in the 200 freesytle, while also besting his school record by a full second. Christian Flanders competed in the 50 freestyle and Olympia Hall competed in the 50 and 100 freestyle events, but neither swimmer made the podium.

On the Island, the Vineyard girls varsity hockey team suffered a tough loss to Barnstable High School with a final score of 2 – 10 despite solid efforts from the Vineyard squad.

“Nothing you can do about it, [Barnstable] put in more goals than we did tonight, and that’s just an off night,” said head coach Geoghan Coogan.

Within the first 10 seconds, Barnstable managed to slip past the Vineyard with a goal by senior Laura Cogswell with an assist by sophomore Ally McEneaney.

By the end of the first period, Barnstable added four more goals.

In the second period, freshman Izabella Blake slapped the puck past Barnstable to put the Vineyard on the board. Vineyard goalie Maggie Best managed to deflect multiple shots from Barnstable before junior Penelope Clifford got past her on a power play. Barnstable extended their lead to 1 – 7 with a shot from freshman Ayla Camelo with three minutes left.

In the stands, Marguerite Cook watched granddaughter Annabelle Metell on the ice.

“I think it’s been going okay,” Ms. Cook said about the season thus far. “We have some pretty strong teams off-Island, but the girls here have to keep up with them.”

On Sunday the girls team did more than keep up. Facing island rival on away ice, the Vineyarders defeated Nantucket 4-3.

Elsewhere over the weekend, the boys hockey team defeated Nauset Regional High School 3-2, boys basketball defeated Collegiate Charter School of Lowell 66-30, and girls basketball defeated Nantucket 48-31 to notch their first win of the season.
