Winter belonged to the Eagles this year. The boys' basketball team went 25-0 and defeated Holy Name (Worcester, Mass.) in the Division 1 final for its first state title since 1917. Senior guard Chris Hurley , who signed with St. Michael's (Colchester, Vt.), led the way, with help from highly recruited junior forward Jake O'Brien. Meanwhile, the Eagles' ice hockey squad was just as impressive as they took home their second consecutive Super Eight crown in what is regarded as arguably the nation's most competitive high school hockey tournament. Senior defenseman Mike Vasilchuk earned All-Scholastic honors from both The Boston Globe and Boston Herald.
