The Vineyard’s high school boys basketball team has gotten off to a scorching start to their season despite the winter cold, winning all three of their games by 20-point margins.


Boys basketball team at play

After a rough start out of the gate, the Vineyard boys bounced back in a major way against a hyped-up and undefeated burly Old Rochester Bulldogs team.


The regional high school boys took the lead in the second quarter and never looked back in a 63-53 upset of the Case Cardinals in the first round of the division 3 south sectional tournament Tuesday.


Despite a furious comeback that sent the game into overtime, the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School boys basketball squad fell to rival Bishop Stang in a playoff thriller at home Friday evening.


The boys basketball team ended post season play in the first round of the state division three south sectionals, losing to Apponequet 62-77.


Several Vineyard winter sport athletes have been named to All-Star teams in their respective conferences.

In boys’ basketball, captains Izak Browne and Jack Roberts earned Eastern Athletic Conference honors for the second year in the row. Girls’ basketball captain Jennie Lindland also repeated as an All-Star, and was joined by senior teammates Katie Stewart (also a captain) and Maggie Riseborough.
