As they were ripping off 15 straight wins, odds are the Walpole High baseball team did not envision anything short of a Bay State Conference Herget Division title.
Seniors Maddy Shea and P.J. Hayes led the way for the Rebels at the Bay State Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships last Wednesday as each brought home individual league titles from Weymouth High.
The Rebels have continued to make large strides in the second half of the season with a 5-0 victory over Norwood on Monday. The win improved Walpole, which starts no seniors and four freshmen, to 4-13 after losing their first nine matches of the season.
It would be easy to think Walpole High baseball coach Bill Tompkins has seen everything during his 35 years guiding the Rebels. Mike Gaughan, however, delivered something on Monday that Tompkins had never been a part of -- a nine-inning no-hitter.
