Medway student dies at practice

Posted by Martin Finucane April 28, 2007 06:48 PM


A 15-year-old Medway High School sophomore died this morning during lacrosse practice, police said.

Police and paramedics responded to the school's football field at 8:42 a.m. after a report of a seizure, and the boy was taken to Milford Regional Medical Center, where he later died. The cause of death was unknown.

It was the second death of a young lacrosse player in a week. An eighth-grader at St. Sebastian's School in Needham died Tuesday while practicing lacrosse on a school field, officials said.

William Judge, 14, of Medfield was involved in a "noncontact drill," officials at the Catholic school for boys said.
