The Warriors rallied to beat the Hawks in double overtime.
Despite a variety of turnovers, travels and fouls, the Lincoln-Sudbury High School boy’s varsity basketball team overcame a 16-point halftime deficit to beat Waltham High School on Dec. 20 in double overtime, 61-56. The victory marks the Warriors' first win of the season, as well as gains some necessary confidence for the young squad, which squandered three different lead changes in six periods. “Any win is a good win,” said Patrick Callahan, L-S head coach. “Obviously, we would have liked to have had a cleaner game, [but] we’re a young team, and we’ve got to take care of the basketball.” Turnovers, missed shots and fouls dictated a majority of the first half for both squads, but somehow Waltham strung together a 19-4 run to start the …

Ninth annual fund-raiser to be held at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School.
The Town of Sudbury is known for many things: history, quality education and excellent restaurants, to name a few. But the real strength of this community is its ability to come together for a good cause. After the terrorist attacks on 9/11, people in Sudbury wanted to know what they could do to help. Town Manager Maureen Valente, along with other town officials, met and soon formed HOPESudbury, a diverse group of residents, town employees and business people who banded as a community to help others who might need support — emotionally, financially or otherwise. On Saturday, from noon to 10 p.m., residents of Sudbury will again band together at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School for HOPESudbury's ninth annual telethon. This live …

An ex-WWE champion and a neurosurgeon educate Lincoln-Sudbury athletes and parents on the effects of head trauma.
When Chris Nowinski discusses his career as a WWE wrestler, his voice shakes a bit. He was among the rising stars for Vince McMahon's enterprise, named "Newcomer of the Year" by RAW Magazine in 2002 and was one of the youngest champions the WWE ever had. But that all ended in 2003 when, during the Royal Rumble, a special match involving numerous wrestlers in the ring at one time, a stunt involving Nowinski and two other wrestlers failed. Instead of taking on a double dropkick from the top turnbuckles, Nowinski was hit by one, while the other wrestler landed on his head. Nowinski suffered from post-concussion syndrome from that 2003 match. He performed for three more weeks before the increasing symptoms became so painful, he was forced to …

Decision clears path to proceed with hiring superintendent/principal at high school next year.
At a meeting of the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional School District (LSRSD) Committee on Tuesday, members decided to proceed independently with their search for a superintendent/principal for the high school. An alternate proposal to consolidate the superintendent roles for Sudbury Public Schools (SPS), which comprises grades K-8, and the high school had been floated by Sudbury's Budget Review Task Force as a possible cost-saving measure. SPS superintendent John Brackett recently announced that he will retire at the end of the school year. Meanwhile, the two-year contract for the high school's current superintendent/principal, Scott Carpenter, also expires in June. "I don't find the concept of a shared superintendent a workable model," said …

But the Warriors (6-2-1) got back their two-goal cushion when Eric Gandrup dribbled into the box, slipped a pass to DeNormandie, who …
