East Longmeadow Spartans took on the North Middlesex Regional school in Fitchburg this morning with a 5-2 loss. Ben Wosky provided two goals in the first to prove a 2-1 lead at the end of the first period with solid offense and defense from all three lines. The second half Middlesex turned the game around with four goals. The Third Period the Spartans came on the ice with a mission and provide a heavy offensive pressure on the Middlesex goalie but we were unable to capitalize. Fine Job Boys and keep up the hard work

East Longmeadow Spartans Hockey took the two hour ride last night to challenge Cohassett at the DCR Connell Rink. They had a tough game with a 6-1 Loss but kept their heads up and did not give up to final whistle blew. Nice goal by Angelo Morace. The Bates Defensive team also showed up last night with Senior Jimmie Bates lining up with his cousin Freshman Jacob Bates. An awesome show Jacob provided his multiple fans in the stands with solid hits and moving the puck to clear the zone as he followed his cousin's lead.
As always enjoy the pictures!
The East Longmeadow boys 7/8 suburban basketball team held off an aggressive comeback bid by Chicopee to win 60-54 on their home court. The Spartans had a comfortable 12 point lead with 11 minutes to go, but Chicopee was able to claw their way back into the game with some quick passing and drives to the hoop. The Spartans responded, however, with poise in the face of a stiff press, good ball movement of their own, and a few fast breaks that sealed the win.
Jason Ayala joined us in the press room for a few minutes for a post game interview. "The game went well. We shot well, we played defense well. We played to our strengths. We came out with a good win here, and we need to keep going on."

Spartan boys and girls swimming had an away meet against Northampton on Friday night. The Spartan girls’ lost a tough meet with a final score of 55-126.
However, the boys’ meet turned out differently for the Spartans. The boys’ score was close for the whole meet with East Longmeadow trailing by a few points to Northampton. The meet was so close that the winner would be determined by the final relay. Not only did it come down to the final relay but, it came down to the last leg of the final relay. Alex Butcher led the 400 yard freestyle relay for the Spartans followed by John Curley and Ben Goulart. By the time that Ben finished, the race completely tied. Finally, Ben Guilmette jumped in for the Spartan boys and the whole pool went crazy. East Longmeadow and Northampton were neck and neck until the last 25 yards and Ben started to pull ahead. By the time the race finished, Ben was a full body length in front of Northampton and led the Spartan boys’ to victory with a score of 84-80.
The Spartans will be facing Longmeadow away on Tuesday followed by Westfield at home on Thursday.
