Today, the Reading High School Boys Hockey Team won the MIAA Division 1 State Championship with a thrilling 4-1 victory over Braintree High School at TD Bank Garden. Reading has been the underdog throughout the entire tournament, beginning as a number 12 seed. However, they have played with the heart of a champion.  Congratulations to Coach Mark Doherty, the coaching staff and the entire team on this great achievement.

As a side note, Reading Memorial High School has now won a state championship each year for the last three years:  Girls Basketball (2012), Football (2013), and Boys Hockey (2014).
