The Manchester Essex girls’ basketball team needed some time to warm up in their Div. 4 Sweet 16 matchup against Notre Dame.  The Hornets were able to get it going and play like their usual selves as the game progressed but eventually ran out of time in their attempt to make a comeback.

The 2022-23 winter season is officially now on ice for local ice hockey teams. The Marblehead girls (a co-op that includes Manchester Essex student athletes) and Rockport boys (another co-op with Manchester Essex) ice hockey teams were knocked out of the MIAA tournament last week, ending the season for both squads.

It’s playoff time for winter sports teams at Manchester Essex, and the local basketball teams will host a doubleheader of postseason play on Friday night.

The Manchester Essex girls’ basketball team finished in the top 15 in the Div. 4 Power Rankings, finishing 13th at this level in the state.  The Hornets were 15-5 overall and 8-5 in a very competitive Cape Ann League, which should provide as preparation for the jump in challenge promised by postseason play.  The girls’ team will host Blue Hills RVT on March 3 (5 p.m., MERHS) in the MIAA Div. 4 Round of 32.
