KRISTEN THOLEN


PEMBROKE  GIRLS' SOCCER


Tholen, a senior defender, helped the Titans to a 17-3-0 record in the regular season, but the playoffs were a totally different story. When goalie Alex Davis suffered a broken ankle in the first round of the postseason tournament, Tholen was shifted into net and didn't miss a beat. The senior captain performed admirably, making 12 saves in a 5-1 win over Mansfield in the Division 2 South quarterfinals.



JILLIAN KINTER


NEWBURYPORT  GIRLS' SOCCER


Kinter helped lead the Clippers to the Division 3 state championship on Nov. 23, notching a goal and an assist in Newburyport's 2-0 win over Monson. It was the second consecutive state title for the Clippers, and Kinter was instrumental in the tournament run. The Colgate-bound senior scored or assisted on the match-winning goal in the sectional finals, the state semifinals and the state finals. Kinter tallied 25 goals and 11 assists on the season, giving her 89 goals for her career.



SEAN RYAN


NORTON  FOOTBALL


No football player was more destructive down the stretch this year than Ryan, a senior running back. On Nov. 7, he ran for 300 yards and scored five touchdowns in a 42-12 win over Millis, and it wasn't even his best game of the season. Ryan ran for 303 yards the week before, in a 41-14 win over Holliston. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Ryan finished the regular season with 33 touchdowns.

DEREK COLUCCI


CATHOLIC MEMORIAL  BOYS' ICE HOCKEY


Catholic Memorial has a long tradition of turning out high-scoring forwards, and Colucci is the latest model. The junior center is one of the quickest skaters in the state, and he has a knack for finding open space. Colucci led the Knights in scoring last year as a sophomore, lighting the lamp 25 times, so look for him to be even better this year as he powers Catholic Memorial toward the Super 8 championship.
