After trailing 12-points early, Waltham girls' basketball was unable to come back.
An early deficit proved too much for the Lady Hawks Friday night. After hitting an early scoring drought, Waltham girls' varsity basketball (1-7, 1-5) fell 62-33 to Lincoln-Sudbury High School (5-3, 4-2) at home. “Lincoln-Sudbury is a very well-rounded and well-coached team,” Waltham head coach Denise Nugent said. “In spurts, we kept up with them pretty well and I am proud of our effort.” The Warriors' starters opened with a 12-point run which created a lead they would hold onto all game.

Hawks lose by double digits.
For most young adults, freshman year of high school is a time of transition — becoming used to new people and building a foundation for what some call the "best four years of your life." For Waltham High School boys' freshman basketball team, it was a step back last night, athletically speaking, on that road of transition. The Hawks were dominated by a quicker, bigger Natick squad in a 74-37 game at Connors Gym at Waltham High School. The loss dropped the Hawks to 1-2 early in the season, prompting head coach Steve Laforest to claim his squad was not ready to play early on in the game. "We were real flat to start out," he said. "You can't come out like we did and expect good things to happen. We need to get off to a better start. Once we …
