Congratulations to our BHS Boys' Basketball team in winning their Eastern MA Division 2 Tourney opener over defending North Champion Salem High last night. The 12th-seeded Red Devils were led by junior Mark Melanson who had 17 points, including five 3-pointers.  Senior Ryan Putney and junior Connor Gallivan added 12 points apiece to end 5th-seeded Salem's season.
The Red Devils will take on the winner of tonight's game between Marblehead and Boston Latin on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. If 4th-seeded Marblehead wins then the game will be in Marblehead, but if Boston Latin wins then BHS would host the quarterfinal round game on Saturday night.
