A tough loss to Shrewsbury snuffed out Concord-Carlisle's postseason chances, but the Patriots ended the season with an impressive win over a tough Framingham squad.
Patriots End Season On High Note After losing to Shrewsbury Monday by one goal thus dashing any hopes for a Division 1 playoff run, the Patriots (8-9-1) rebounded in strong fashion Tuesday by defeating No. 10 ranked Framingham (14-4) 15-13 at Doug White Field. Concord-Carlisle looked both strong and confident in their final game as they competed at the highest level against an athletic and stealthy Flyer team.

The fiery New York coach and CCHS Hall of Famer will lead his team against the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Game 1 is tonight, May 16, at the TD Garden.
He’s told the Caps to stop whining and admonished reporters over their questions, and now John Tortorella’s postseason ride brings his New York Rangers to Boston, to take on the Bruins in the NHL’s Eastern Conference semifinals. It’s the first time the two Original Six squads have faced each other in the postseason since Bobby Orr was in black-and-gold, but there’s a definite familiarity between the two sides. And it runs deeper than their being Eastern Conference rivals. Tonight’s game—the puck drops at 7:30 p.m. at the TD Garden—will be a homecoming of sorts for Tortorella, the fiery Rangers coach, who attended Concord-Carlisle High. His team topped the B’s twice in three games this season, and Tortorella told the Globe he sees no …

Or, more evidence ‘Best of' lists should always be taken with a grain of salt.
Does GoLocal Worcester know something Newsweek doesn’t? And does either of those pubs check their math with BoMag's or the US News and World Report? Hard not to ponder those questions after Concord-Carlisle High nearly topped the Worcester pub’s list of the state’s best high schools, but was only toward the top of the Commonwealth in Newsweek’s rankings of the nation’s top high schools. The No. 4 spot CCHS claimed on GoLocal Worcester’s list of Massachusetts’ Top High Schools in 2013 is pretty close to to the norm, when these “Best of" lists are compiled by an in-state publication. In the not too distant past, CC occupied the No. 4 spot on Boston Magazine’s Best Schools of 2012 list. However, Concord-Carlisle was ranked 33rd by US News…

Hannah Lane lost her father to cancer when she was in elementary school. Ten years later, she’ll honor him with her senior project.
A silent auction will be held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. this Saturday, April 27 at Concord-Carlisle High School, with all of the proceeds going to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in memory of Jeffrey Harold Lane. Hannah Lane, a senior at CCHS, organized the event as her senior project, as a way to honor her father, who died in 2003 after a long battle with cancer. “This is kind of my tribute,” said Lane, who was 8 when her father passed away. Selecting Dana-Farber as the beneficiary of the fundraiser was an easy choice for Lane. That’s where her dad went for chemotherapy and other treatments, and her family has supported Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund through donations and participating in the Pan Mass Challenge. To solicit auction items, …
