WMHS nine (1-1) shut out by Minutemen, 9-0 Published in the April 20, 2018 edition. By NOAH GREIF WAKEFIELD — While other WMHS spring squads have been practicing this week, the baseball team has been trying to catch up on regular season games, putting them in a pickle.

The Warriors needed some new athletes to rise to the occasion as they couldn’t compete with a full lineup due to April vacation. “It is always a hard time to plan your lineup when there are so many kids missing due to school sanctioned trips over vacation week,” said Wakefield head coach Karen Barrett. “Our girls really stepped up today.”  Lillian Jones started it off with a win in the 400 hurdles running a 73.6.
