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.
