Franklin, Oliver Ames Girls Debut in Latest MSTCA Poll

By HockomockSports.com Staff
For the first time this season, there are three Hockomock teams ranked in the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association poll.
The Mansfield boys team has had a strong three weeks but it somehow found itself down in a spot in the Boys Large School poll. Mansfield swept its league schedule, finishing 5-0 and won its 13th straight Hockomock League title. The Hornets picked up dominate wins over Attleboro and King Philip to close the season and won the Kelley-Rex Division in each of the six years since the split. On top of that, Mansfield had a strong showing at the Bay State Invitational, finishing second in the Dutille Race with 70 points and had the second and third place finishers in Jack Crawford and Jake Affanato.
On the girls side, two Hockomock teams made their debuts in the MSTCA Poll. The Franklin girls team (5-0), who won the Kelley-Rex title this season in a thrilling 22-34 win over previously unbeaten North Attleboro, debuts at 14. That’s the highest spot any Hockomock girls team has been ranked this season. At the CM Invitational this past weekend, the Panthers finished 5th as a team and Nicole Clermont was second overall.
Oliver Ames, who finished second in the Davenport Division, also made their 2015 debut, coming in at 19th. The Tigers were edged by the eventual Davenport champs Sharon 27-28 before taking home a dominate win over Stoughton. OA finished 11th overall at the Brown Invitational over the weekend.
