The boys' tennis
teams at those schools won state
championships in Divisions 1 and 3,
respectively, on the same June day.
Concord-Carlisle beat Longmeadow,
3-2, as the father-son combination
of coach Bill Steinroeder and singles
star Alex led the way to a 23-0 finish.
Hamilton-Wenham had an easier
day, beating Mt. Greylock, 4-1. For
coach Joe Maher's crew, the title
capped an 18-2 season. "As a coach,
this is Cloud 9," said Maher. "I'm so
glad these kids had this opportunity."
