Boys’ soccer

The boys’ soccer team started off their season well this year. They won their first two games, however, in their last three games, they have only won one. Their record is 3-2 and they are hoping to get a victory at home against Quabbin on Monday, September 23.

In their opening game, the Spartans beat Lunenburg 1-0. The only goal of the game came from senior Kevin O’Connor. 

Game two was a rivalry matchup for the Spartans, which they won 2-0. The Gardner Wildcats came out strong but the Spartans fought back with a great team effort. Both goals of the game came from senior Bryce Berry.

Drew Berry, the junior goalie, has made some tremendous saves thus far in net. His skills keep the team’s spirits up and helps them win games. 

Girls’ Soccer

The girls’ soccer team started off strong, winning their first two games. A tie and two losses have them at 2-2-1. They are hoping for a win in their next game against Quabbin on Monday, September 23. 

In their first game of the year, the Lady Spartans had a great game beating Lunenburg 6-1 at home. Macy Litalien had three goals while Emma Simkewicz, Allison Sowerbutts and Lily O’Mara each had one goal. 

After the boys beat Gardner 2-0, the girls also played Gardner. Oakmont won the game 2-1, with goals coming from Macy Litalien and Haley Rutherford. 

The Spartans had a strong start to their third game. Two goals from Emma Simkewicz in the first half made for a promising game. However, Tyngsboro did not quit and came back with two of their own goals in the second half to tie the game.

Field Hockey

The field hockey team started their season with a tie. Since then, they have won four games straight and have been winning in fashion, outscoring their opponents 18-2 in their last four games. 

After their first game, a tie against Quabbin, the team wanted a win. A game at North Middlesex got the teams moral and energy up as they cruised to a 5-0 win. Goals came from Allyson Foley, Sophia O’Brien, Sarah Richard and two goals from Irini Stefanakos. 

With a two-game win streak going, the field hockey team visited Lunenburg. They were down 2-0 but came back to win the game 4-2. Kiley Young and Gianna Moorsehead both had a goal and Irini Stefanakos had two. 


The Golf team has been the strongest sport this fall. The team is off to a 6-0 start. They have handily won every match, creating a very promising season for the Spartans, who are trying to repeat the undefeated season they had last year. 

Jake Berkio has lead the team so far, dominating his opponents. In the first match, he shot 2 over 37, proceeded by shooting another 2 over 37 in the following match . In the third match, Berkio had an excellent performance, shooting 1 under 34. 

Other members of the golf team that have been playing well include Primo Dellasanta and Jonny Gastonguay. 


The football team had a huge win in their first game, playing at Gardner’s new turf. However, some had doubts about the outcome of the game for the Spartans. 

Oakmont came out flying. On the second play of the game, Colton Bosselait connected with Ryan McKenna for a 44 yard touchdown.

After the Spartans got that second play touchdown, they continued to steamroll  Gardner for the remainder of the game. With a 36-0 lead at halftime, it was evident that the Spartans had this game in the bag. 

A few defensive mistakes lead to some Gardner scores, but the Spartans ultimately prevailed 53-20. 

Colton Bosselait had two rushing touchdowns and threw for three more. Cole Swanson, Ryan McKenna, and Drew Tshudy all had receiving touchdowns. Xavian Dean performed very strong in his first game at running back, where he scored two touchdowns. 

Cross Country

The boys’ cross country team started their season with a win over Quabbin. In their first meet, the runners ran strong. Sean Kelly, Tim Marsh and Logan Tamulen finished first, second and third. 

The girls cross country team did not win their first meet, however, there was still a major highlight. Fiona Picone beat the course record at Oakmont’s 2.7 mile course. 


The cheerleading squad hasn’t had any competitions. Their first competition is October 27, which the girls are excited for.
