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.


In the first girls hockey clash between the two islands, Ava BenDavid scored the first six Vineyard goals as the home team defeated the Nantucket Whalers 8-4.

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.


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.
