It was a big day for Hiller athletics as they swept the Ashland Clockers in all games Monday after returning from break.

Juliet Hulme lead the softball team with 13 strikeouts in five innings, as the Hillers put the mercy rule to the Clockers 15-0. Lizzy Kelley and Kayla Sullivan lead the offense with 3 RBI each and combined to bat 5 for 6 at the plate.

The team now improves their record to 5 – 1 overall.

In baseball, the Hillers won their home opener the final inning 4-3.

Evan Park kept them in it, throwing a complete game for the win. However, it was in the final inning, that Mike Messier scored from second on a steal and passed ball to give the Hillers their second win of the season.

On the courts, girls tennis swept all 5 matches against Ashland. Olivia Anderson won the #1 singles match. And, in her varsity match ever, Steph Pearson won #2 doubles with partner Olivia Contrella.

Finally, boys tennis pulled off a close 3-2 win against the Clockers. The #1 and #2 Mastroianni Brothers won both their matches. But #2 doubles Wills Howard and Chris Satterfield clinched the entire meet for the Hillers.

Next up, all four teams face the Dover-Sherborn Raiders on Wednesday. Check the athletic department website for starting times and locations.
