Sports Roundup May 14-20

The local track teams competed at the Bay State Conference championships, and the boys' lacrosse and girls' tennis squads stayed perfect.

Baseball: The Raiders missed a chance to pull closer to league leader Walpole, falling, 7-2, to the Rebels on Monday. The result assured Walpole at least a share of the Bay State Conference title. Wellesley (10-7, 7-5 BSC) didn’t play again this week because of rain and remains in second place in the Herget Division.

Softball: Wellesley lost an entire week of play to rain, leaving the team to sit on its four-game losing streak. The Raiders (3-12, 2-9 BSC) will play an unusual Sunday game tomorrow morning at 11 a.m., when they host Walpole.

Boys’ lacrosse: The Raiders continue to crush all comers, picking up two decisive victories this week. Wellesley (15-0, 10-0 BSC) overwhelmed Braintree, 13-2, on Tuesday and topped Newton North, 10-6, on Thursday to stay unbeaten and ranked No. 2 in the Boston Globe’s  poll.

Girls’ lacrosse: Wellesley redeemed its lone loss of the spring as part of a three-win week. The Raiders (13-1-1, 11-0 BSC) beat Lincoln-Sudbury, 11-6, at home on Monday, two weeks after falling to the Warriors, 11-9. They also defeated Braintree, 13-5, on Tuesday and Newton North, 19-8, on Friday.

Boys’ tennis: The Raiders won their second straight, beating Newton North, 4-1, on Friday. Wellesley (9-2,7-1 BSC) Thanks to rain, Wellesley plays every day next week, closing with Friday’s rematch against Needham, which snapped the Raiders’ three-year BSC winning streak on April 27.

Girls’ tennis: Wellesley added one more victory to stay perfect and in first place in the conference. The Raiders (12-0, 10-0 BSC) blanked Braintree, 5-0, on Friday and, like the boys, play five matches in five days to close the season next week.

Boys’ track and field: Wellesley placed two runners among the top seven in the two-mile at Wednesday’s Bay State Conference championships, as John Williamson finished fourth in 10:29.61 and Bijan Mazaheri took seventh in 10:41.50. Mason Griffin was third in the shot put, at 48 feet, 1 ½ inches.

Girls’ track and field: Senior Eva Lauer dominated the two-mile run, winning by more than 17 seconds in 11:10.73, to lead Wellesley at the Bay State Conference championships on Wednesday. Carly Daniel finished second in the 200-meter days, in 26.02, and Priyanka Fouda was second in the mile, in 5:20.97.
