After a boatload of bobbles on their first apparatus of the state gymnastics championships — the uneven bars — the co-op was not in a good place to defend the title. So coach Stephen Cudworth took his team aside and put things in perspective.“I pulled them aside after the first event and said, ‘You girls are state champions, and you need to act like state champions,” Cudworth said.The message got through.“Basically, he told us to shake it off,” Olivia Keyes said. “There are four events in gymnastics, and you can’t let one bring you down.”B-R/WB shook the uneven bars failure off like Taylor Swift, propelling it to a second consecutive state title with a 144.475-144.275 victory over last year’s runner up, Mansfield.Upstart Masconomet/Lynnfield … [Read more...] about School gymnastics: Bridgewater-Raynham/West Bridgewater able to shake it off following early misstep to repeat as state champion

He was VERY blunt in his assessment of several subjects, including what the Vikings are thinking when it comes to their offseason QB conundrum. If you’re waking up from a blissful winter hibernation and just now catching up to things, the last three Vikings seasons have featured three different primary starting QBs: Teddy Bridgewater in 2015, Sam Bradford in 2016 and Case Keenum in 2017. All three were on the roster last season, and all three are set to be free agents in less than two weeks.
