There are 140 Marblehead players in the 7-8 year-old division alone.
On a thick carpet of grass at the intersection of Birch and Lafayette coaches Greg Mahan and Steve Tolan toss passes to the 49ers, a team of scrappy 7- and 8-year-olds. The 10 players, six from Marblehead and four from Swampscott, run to open spaces waving their arms and calling for the coaches to throw them the soft rubber blue football. In the 7-8 year old division in the North Shore Flag Football League there are 140 players from Marblehead alone.

Header Connor Ohlson, 12, won the 18-and-younger category for the second year in a row. The course wound through Marblehead and Swampscott.
Nine seconds made the difference between second place and victory Sunday morning in the 13th annual Jewish Community Center Triathlon by the Sea. With little wind, lots of sunshine and refreshing temperatures in the mid-50s, a Boston University strength and conditioning coach from Watertown, Victor Brown, crossed the line first. Brown clocked 52:13 in the 1/8-mile swim, 10-mile bike and 3.5-mile run over the Marblehead and Swampscott course. Spectators, some in lawn chairs and hugging coffee mugs at the ends of their driveways, cheered the bikers and runners as they wheeled and pounded past. Family and friends formed a welcome-to-the-end gauntlet at the JCC entrance. Runners veered from Atlantic Avenue to Community Road climbing a short …
In these short video clips we ask high school seniors for their post graduation plans and their pre-graduation thoughts.
Welcome to Senior Segues. Here we visit briefly with Marblehead High 12th-graders. They still have a big month left in their public schools days but are on the cusp of graduating and preparing to transition to what's next in their lives. Many will be packing for colleges, some of them out of state. Some will head into the military. Others may go right into the work force. Some may even spend time traveling. These are short clips in which seniors say what they plan to do next year: what they will miss about Marblehead High: and what they are looking forward to? Let us know if you would like us to video your segue. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we'll arrange one with you.
