Friends and Neighbors

• The CCHS boys tennis team takes on Mt. Greylock in the state finals Wednesday at Holy Cross. The defending state champions defeated the Wellesley team in the EMass final, 5-0. Ben Nock of Bedford Road, a CCHS junior, is a member of the first doubles team.

Jessica Critchlow of Baldwin Road, a senior at the College of Wooster and a member of the school's women's lacrosse team was named North Coast Athletic Conference defense player of the year. She has also been named a first team regional All-American.

Tom Ratcliffe of Concord Street, along with 20 other runners, ran this years' Boston Marathon in order to raise awareness and funds for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. This group of athletes ("Team ALS") was running in support of their friend Scott Carlson, 37, who is afflicted with ALS. Together the team raised over $110,000, more than twice their original goal. All of the money raised was donated to The Angel Fund, which supports ALS research at Massachusetts General Hospital. To celebrate their rundraising efforts, Tom presented a commemorative T-shirt to Dr. Robert Brown, who heads the Day Neuromuscular Research Lab at MGH, and is one of the world's leading experts on ALS. Phyllis Hughes provided layout design and framing of the T-shirt, which Team ALS members wore in the race..
