Football headed to Gillette!

What a run it is has for Coach Dembowski and the Football Team! After finishing the regular season 7-0, they stormed past Minnechaug Regional High School in the first round, winning 46-21. In the Quarterfinals, they hosted Marblehead. Trailing by as many as 13 (and 10 at the half) the 'Cats scored 14 unanswered points in the second half to win 24-20 and reach the Semifinals.

Up against a very good Hanover Team in the Semifinals, the 'Cats came out of the gates firing, taking a 6-0 lead on the first drive. They lead the Hawks 20-8 at halftime. The Hawks erupted for 22 points in the second half and took the lead in the fourth quarter. After trading interceptions, the Cats held on to win 32-30. The full story can be found here. Harrison Hinckle and Ben Caledonia made HUGE plays to help the 'Cats stamp their ticket to Gillette.

They will play Wakefield Memorial High School on Saturday, December 3rd at 5:30pm at Gillette Stadium! Tickets are available here!

Fall Tournament Success

Boys Soccer

After a comeback for the ages from the Field Hockey Team on Saturday 11/5, the Boys Soccer Team brought fireworks as well the following Monday night. They fought hard to a 0-0 draw in regulation, as Captain Ian Wick and his defense held out the Spartans. After striking the crossbar late in the game, Christopher Rhoden needed just a minute to find the back of the net in OT to win 1-0.

They then went to Westboro on Thursday, 11/10, falling 1-0 to a second half goal. It was a good season for the boys, winning their first tournament game in back-to-back years.


The Volleyball Team got things started with an epic 3-2 win over Burlington after trailing 9-2 in the final set in the first round of the tournament.

They saw their season come to an end in the next round. They lost to #1 ranked Westboro 3-0, but the score does not reflect the match entirely. The Cats battled hard in the first set, losing by just a couple of points. The Rangers then pulled away in the next two sets.

Field Hockey

After earning a tournament berth last season for the first time in nearly 10 years, the Field Hockey Team went one better this season, winning their first tournament game in 17 years in dramatic fashion, trailing 2-0 and trying the game with 46 seconds left. Lily Brockmyre scored both goals in regulation and Meghan Mylod scored the winner in OT to win 3-2!

They then traveled to #2 Nashoba Regional High School, ultimately losing 3-0. There is clear progress in this program and the future looks bright!

Cross Country

Congrats to the Girls Country Team on the end of a great season concluding at the Division 1 Championships! You can view all the results here. The girls finished in 18th overall. Mia Jilani tied for 20th place with a time of 19:14!

The Boys finished their season at the Division IC Championships the weekend prior, finishing 13th. Full results can be found here. Both programs beat Braintree High School on their final home meet of the season.


The Varsity team concluded the regular season, finishing 7-8 - just one shy of qualifying for the tournament as a team, but their best record since 2017! Ben Catudal, Johnny Gillooly and Rogan Pater represented MHS Golf at the Baystate Conference Tournament at Wellesley Country Club. Johnny (80) and Ben (82) were named First-Team All Stars, and the trio earned 3rd place in the league.

Ben Catudal and Johnny Gillooly both represented the Wildcats in the MIAA D2 North Sectional Tournament. They played very well at the Brookline Golf Course Ben shot an 80 (tied for 17th) and Johnny an 83 (tied for 31st).

Swim & Dive

MIAA States - Jackson Wagner broke the school and meet records in the 100 and 200 freestyle (despite placing second), Malachi Buchanan won the 50 freestyle, and Ryan Kelly swam a great race in the 100 backstroke to finish second. The boys won the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay and broke the school record in the 400 freestyle relay by 14 seconds! They fell short 6 points to win.

The girls placed 12th overall, which was impressive with only 5 girls competing. Kaleigh Boynton placed 8th in the 100 breaststroke and 10th in the 200 IM, and Liv DiSandro placed in the top 16 for the 100 backstroke.

MIAA Sectionals - Kaleigh Boynton finished 7th in the 100 breaststroke and dropped 2 seconds in the 200 Individual medley to finish 9th. Jackson Wagner won the 200 freestyle and the 100 butterfly, Malachi Buchanan won the 100 freestyle and placed second in the 50 freestyle, and Colby Moskos won the 200 Individual medley and placed second in the 100 breaststroke. Top three finishers in individual events were Ryan Kelly, Aidan Crummey, and Tucker Korman. The boys won all three relays and won the meet by over 100 points!

Girls Soccer unfortunately did not qualify for the tournament, but over half the team is a freshman or sophomore, which bodes well for the future!

Milton Athletics Committee

The Milton Athletics Committee (MAC) is composed of Milton Youth Sport Directors. The purpose of the committee is to foster a much needed - and collaborative - conversation about Milton Athletics, specifically regarding the facilities in Town. Our goal is to enhance Town Pride and develop kids from youth sports to wherever they go for high school and beyond.

Our next meeting is Monday, November 21st at 6pm in the Milton Public School Library Conference Room.

Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

This Committee is facilitated by the Athletic Director and consists of student-athletes representing each grade level and as many sports as possible. This is for student-athletes to work together and tell us what they want and need.

The mission of the Milton High School Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare and fostering a positive student-athlete image.
