After coming back from a two-run deficit in its final at bat, Wayland lost 5-4 to host Lincoln-Sudbury on Friday.
A seventh inning comeback put Wayland softball just short of victory on Friday. After overcoming a two-run deficit in the top of the inning, the DCL (Small) Wayland Warriors lost 5-4 on a walk-off bunt by host Lincoln-Sudbury. “This is as well as we can play,” said Wayland manager Keith Meliones. “If not for a hit or two, we had the runners in scoring position but could not get that winning hit.” The win improves L-S's record to 3-8 overall, while dropping Wayland's to 1-10. Entering the bottom of the seventh tied 4-4, sophomore Becca Ryan ripped a long drive off the center field wall to put the winning runner on first. After a steal from Ryan, a well-placed bunt from senior Kayla Johnson down the third base line forced a bobbled throw to …

Despite third-set resurgence, Wayland loses 25-17 to host Lincoln-Sudbury on Friday.
A three-set loss for Wayland boys' volleyball was not without mistakes, but a strong third set showed signs of improvement for the Orange and Black. Losing 25-8 and 25-10 respectively in the first two sets, Wayland rallied in the third to drop a slim 25-17 set loss to host Lincoln-Sudbury on Friday. “In the first set-and-a-half, I think our guys were a little overwhelmed by Lincoln-Sudbury,” said Wayland coach Rod Fletcher. “The longer they played the more they started to get in the flow.” L-S (9-0) jumped out early, winning the first two sets by double digits. Dominating the net throughout the two sets, L-S's John Swords combined for seven points in the second set, including five spikes for scores. “We have some pretty fine back-row …

Without subs, Wayland lost to host Lincoln-Sudbury 17-2 on Wednesday.
Wayland coach E.J. Kluge knows Lincoln-Sudbury is always a tough match. Without a bench and on the road, Wednesday's match was no different for the DCL (Small) Warriors as they dropped a 17-2 loss to L-S (5-1) and fell to 2-3 overall. “All things considered it went as well as it could have,” said Kluge. “We were missing a lot of players, because of injury and vacation. The girls are pretty athletic so they were able to run well anyway.” The L-S Warriors opened the game with a pair of scoring streaks. The first streak, a five goal run, began at 24:42 in the first half with a goal off the draw by L-S junior Madison Acton. Receiving a behind the net pass from teammate sophomore Abby Quirk, junior Megan Griffin finished a bounced shot at 16:29…
