Debating Medfield High’s rival—is it based on history and tradition or current matchups?
Rivalry is defined as “competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field.” In high school athletics, rivalries often warrant extra attention leading up to the big game. From pep rallies to spirit weeks, the school community shows extra pride for the home team during these "rivalry games." Medfield High’s athletic history has produced several notable rivalries over the years, but perhaps none more evident than two: Westwood and Dover-Sherborn. The Warriors have gone toe-to-toe with both of these schools in football on Thanksgiving and are often competing near the top of the Tri-Valley League with both schools in various sports over the course of the school year. However, Medfield's Thanksgiving Day opponents don't stop…

With two games remaining in the 2011 season, head coach Erik Ormberg expects his Medfield High School football team to compete and execute its game plan for four quarters, starting Friday night in Millis. “We have to play four quarters of football, limit mistakes and penalties and convert big plays on special teams,” Ormberg said.
