Boys Soccer Wraps Up Fall II Season
The Chelsea High boys soccer team competed as new members of the Greater Boston League in the recently-completed GBL’s Fall II season.
The newly-composed GBL is comprised of eight schools: long-time GBL rivals Malden, Medford, Everett, and Somerville, who had played in the Northeastern Conference (NEC) for three years before regrouping back to the GBL; Revere, which returned to the GBL after jumping to the NEC in 2005; Lynn English and Lynn Classical, both of whom had been members of the NEC since 1970; and Chelsea, an original member of the GBL in the 1950s before leaving for the Commonwealth Athletic Conference in the early 1990s.
Among the highlights of the 2021 Fall II spring campaign for long-time head coach Mick Milutinovic’s squad were a 3-2 victory over Lynn Classical and a 5-5 tie with a strong Somerville team, which finished in second place in the league and which handed GBL champ Revere its only defeat.
Cross-Country Team Competing in GBL
The Chelsea High boys cross country team has been competing in the Fall II season as a member of the Greater Boston League under new head coach Samuel Fogel.
The five members of the 2021 Red Devil squad are junior Johnny Maldonado, sophomores Jose Olivar and Nate Nadow, and freshmen Alejandro Zepeda and Greandoll Oliva.
In a recent meet held on their home course at Admiral’s Hill against Lynn Classical, the Red Devils came up on the short end of a 13-23 decision. Zepeda was the top Chelsea runner, coming across the line in fourth place in a time of 20:46. He was followed by Olivar in fifth place in 21:35 and Maldonado in sixth spot in 21:41.
