If you can be of assistance, please send an email with your contact information to president@nsboosters.com. If you can take on the Treasurer position (thank you!), it would be helpful if you could start training this year.

Winter Teams to Be Recognized for Newton Food Pantry Support

Our winter student-athletes rose to the challenge in support of the Newton Food Pantry. A carload of items was delivered on December 19 to the Pantry, which is located at City Hall. The Boys Track team, the Boys Ice Hockey team, and the Girls Gymnastics team competed to see who could collect the most items! They did an outstanding job and made a great impact on the lives of 700 families. Our thanks to Ms. Hoffman and Coach McCarthy for helping to load 15 big bags and four large boxes! The MIAA will recognize our winter athletes for their community outreach and their kindness toward the Newton Food Pantry and the most vulnerable members of our community at the start of the Girls Varsity Basketball game on Friday, January 4.

Holiday Classic Basketball Tournaments

Newton South hosted the Holiday Classic Girls Basketball tournament during the December break. Four schools competed against each other, and many parents and students came to support the teams. Newton North hosted the boys side of the tournament.

Girls Ice Hockey Program Continues to Develop

The Girls Ice Hockey program finished its co-op with Brookline High School after eight years of a very productive arrangement. Three of our players were grandfathered in and stayed with the Brookline team. This year we started a new co-op with Newton North. Both the Newton North and the Brookline teams faced off earlier this week (Wednesday, January 2) for a great game that finished with a 2-2 tie! Caroline Pratt scored for Newton, and Willa Frantzis scored for Brookline. We look forward to a season of growth and development.

Girls Track Beats Acton-Boxboro

The Girls Track team had a come-from-behind win over Acton-Boxboro on Wednesday (January 2) at the Boston University track. Our runners outscored A-B 30 to 7 in the last 5 events to defeat them 52.5 to 47.5. Way to go, Lions!
