The Medfield High School winter sports teams have yet to lose a game in 2011.
Since the calendar turned to January each winter sport racked up wins in the first week of the New Year. Every Warrior team is playing well and gaining momentum in their respective season. Here's a look at what each team faces this week:
The Warriors are building confidence with each game of the season and as a result have rattled off three straight wins to even their record at 3-3. Medfield hits the road for two games this week. The team will be in Ashland on Tuesday and Millis on Friday. Both games tip-off at 6:30 p.m.
Medfield continues to hold a tight grip on first place in the Tri-Valley League after two more TVL victories last week to improve its record to 7-0 overall and 6-0 in the league. The Warriors beat Westwood last Tuesday and Bellingham last Friday. This week the team hosts Ashland Tuesday and Millis Friday. Both games are at 6:30 p.m.
MHS has played four games so far in January and is 2-0-1 – still awaiting the result of Saturday's game against Hopkinton – in that stretch. The Warriors had a huge win over TVL rival Medway – the team's first against the Mustangs in program history on Wednesday. Then on Thursday traveled to Billerica and beat Shawsheen Tech. This week, Medfield takes on Dover-Sherborn at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Veteran's Arena in Franklin.
The Warriors became the second girls' program this winter to improve its record to 7-0 after Sunday's 2-0 win over Lincoln-Sudbury. Earlier in the week, Medfield beat Barnstable 4-2 and beat Quincy/North Quincy Saturday, 3-0. This week, MHS takes on Westwood Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. and Franklin Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Iorio Arena in Walpole.

Medfield swam against old friends and former teammates last week when the team beat Dover-Sherborn, 97-68. The Warriors jump in the pool twice this week for meets against King Philip (Wednesday at 7:30 p.m) and Hopkinton on Friday.
