The 7th annual Duxbury Beach Triathlon will start this Saturday at
10:30 am at the west end of the Powder Point Bridge. Duxbury has over
150 participants among the 700 competitors from around the country
expected to toe the starting line.
The 8th grade DYF Varsity Midget’s beat the
Hanson Warriors, 30-0, at Duxbury Middle School on Sunday. It was a
complete team effort, as every one of the 31 players contributed to the
win, with a stingy Dragon defense contributing two scores of its own
and remained unscored upon.
In an election year it seems appropriate that the Dragons would open
their season against the Presidents of Quincy High School. Fortunately
for Duxbury, they made a last ditch effort in the final two minutes of
their inaugural game to overtake the newest Patriot League entry and
escape with a 4-2 win.
After suffering an opening-day non-league loss to Sandwich, the boys’
golf team has ripped off three straight wins with victories last week
over Scituate (215-225) and Silver Lake (192-223) in Patriot League
The Duxbury boys’ and girls’ cross-country teams kicked off their
seasons on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon in Pembroke last week in a
tri-meet with the Titans and the new Patriot League entry of a combined
Quincy/N. Quincy squad.
After what appeared to be a disastrous start (losing to Marshfield) to
the 2008 field hockey season, the Lady Dragons got their act together
last Thursday afternoon in Duxbury and knocked off defending Patriot
League champion, Hingham, 2-1.
The Duxbury High School wrestling team will hold a car wash Saturday, Sept. 20 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the high school. The rain date will be Sunday, Sept. 21. The price for cars and trucks is $5 (includes towel dry.)
The fall of 2008 marks the first season with the Patriot League having
12 full-time member schools. Whitman-Hanson Regional High School, North
Quincy High School and Quincy High School officially joined the Patriot
League this fall. The league is now split up into two divisions in many
It looked like Coach Dave Maimaron was going out on a limb by
scheduling Division 1 powerhouse Xaverian for the Dragon’s home opener,
but the Duxbury coach got the last laugh for those who doubted his
It hasn’t happened often, and for that matter it hasn’t happened in the
last 10 years. Opening the season against Marshfield has pretty much
been a good practice game for the Lady Dragons as they get ready for
the always-competitive Patriot League season.
Coach Jack Stoddard began his 20th year at the helm of the DHS boys’
golf team last Wednesday afternoon in Sandwich following a 14-3 record
in 2007 and a fifth-place finish in the State championships. The
veteran coach hopes that he can at least duplicate last year’s
performance and is trying to avoid the dreaded sophomore jinx.
