Lancers fall to the Vineyarders 48-32.
Based on their previous meeting from earlier in the season, it was no secret that the Lancers girls’ basketball team’s game against the Martha’s Vineyard Vineyarders was not going to be easy. Going into the game at 5-3 while playing in the competitive Eastern Athletic Conference, the Vineyarders were not a team that was going to let up at any point. “They’re a great team and they play in a great league,” Norton head coach Nicole Nunes said of the Vineyarders. Despite an impressive opening quarter, the Lancers (1-8) fell to the Vineyarders (6-3) 48-32. In the first quarter the Lancers moved the ball well enough to jump out to a 14-8 lead. Getting to the basket off of turnovers and steals, the Lancers’ started the game in the opposite manner…

The Warriors get 4 scores in double digits and Meghan Brown scores a game high 17 for the Lancers.
As successful as the game was for the Medfield Warriors, it was just as frustrating for the Norton Lancers. After keeping the score to within 3 almost midway though the second quarter, the Lancers fell apart as the Warriors beat the Lancers 68-20 in the first game of the season. Early signs in the first quarter indicated a defensive struggle, as both teams were hurting for points. With both teams tightening up on defense, it was going to take an extra strong offensive effort to win the game, and Medfield couldn’t get it early on. “That first quarter obviously a little frustrating for us. We need to play a lot better than that. We had looks that we should have been making that we weren't making,” said Medfield head coach Mark Nickerson. …

Lancers face two tough challenges this week.
The Norton High girls' basketball team is currently in the midst of an important stretch of three games in eight days. After winning their first two games against Seekonk and Dover-Sherborn, the Lancers suffered their first loss during a Tri-Valley League game last Friday in Hopkinton, 59-47. This week Norton will face two talented teams in Ashland and Millis. And after this difficult stretch, the Lancers will have a better idea where they stand as team that is hoping to qualify for the MIAA Division 3 South Sectional Tournament by season's end. The Lancers opened the season with a 57-40 win over Seekonk in a non-league game at the Lawrence Larocque Gymnasium. They followed that up with a dominant performance at Dover-Sherborn, winning 51-…

Wheaton College women's basketball coach Melissa Hodgdon, along with help from the team and Wheaton College, organized a fundraiser to help kick off their season this year featuring a game against Rivier College of New Hampshire. The foundation known as Girl Up is one which strives to empower women from impoverished and underpriveledged nations. "I read about the foundation in August and wanted to get involved as I feel our program and team can help the cause," Hodgdon said. And help they did, as those who came to view the game readily donated to Girl Up, and accepted flyers and brochures learning about the program. "I have encouraged one of our players, [forward] Gabbie DePalo, to do an internship with Girl Up in New York this …
