DEDHAM, MA — Two girls’ basketball Spartans took to the court to represent Lawrence Academy at the 2017 – 2018 NEPSAC Class B All-Star Game.
Hosted by Nobles, Nicolette Arnold ’19 and Ashley Evans ’20 joined the “East” squad and impressed LA’s longtime girls’ basketball guru Donna Mastrangelo.
“Both girls did an outstanding job representing our school,” said Coach Mastrangelo, postgame. “They made big stops defensively, rebounded well, and there was a huge block by Ashley
“Also, they both did well on the offensive end with impressive assists by Nicolette, and key baskets by each girl.
“They put the East ahead while they were in the game,” she said.
Congratulations to both Spartans, not only for their fine showing on Sunday but also for an excellent winter season.

Lots of smiles at St. Anselm…
After beating Gunnery 3-2 in OT in Connecticut on Saturday, the team traveled to St. Anselm College to take on the New Hampton School on Sunday in the final game of the Piatelli/Simmons bracket. After an end-to-end contest finished 4-4 in regulation, the Spartans managed to edge the Huskies 5-4 off a goal from forward Gunnar-wolfe Fontaine ‘20 with 8:22 on the clock in overtime.
“[I’m] so proud,” said co-captain Andrew Moynihan ‘18 after the game. “Every single player in that room would do something for the person next to them, and I think that’s what’s most important.”
“It’s been a huge honor,” added fellow captain and senior Jack Cameron.
“To be a captain of this team and go win the championship—it means so much to me, it could’ve been anyone out of eight or nine of us in the room…I feel very fortunate, very lucky to be in that position.”
“We preach family first, right from the get-go,” head coach Robbie Barker reflected.
“I tell the guys, ‘You’ve got to believe in yourself, you’ve got to believe in each other, and you can’t play for yourself’—it’s a team game, and that’s a great example of what happened today.”
