Here at the #MIAA 2022 Gymnastics State Championships

Kat Cornetta's recap of the Championships in the Boston Globe:

"Masconomet had a 3.65 lead going into its final rotation, floor exercise, and built on it with a wide variety of routines. From Emma Quirk’s balletic turn to Brandt’s tribute to Paula Abdul that featured an opening double pike, their skills kept the title firmly in grasp.

Franklin senior Emma White was the day’s most dynamic gymnast, and it propelled the Panthers to second place and earned her the all-around title with a 38.925. White earned a 9.8 on balance beam, with a flawless tumbling series, followed by a moonwalk for good measure. A spirited floor exercise rotation for Franklin was capped by perfect routines by both Kate Rudolph and White, with White hitting both a double back and double pike to earn a 9.75.

“It’s unbelievable what they have been able to accomplish,” Franklin coach Paula Lupien said. “They continue to elevate their skills every time they step into the gym. They did everything they possibly could have today, and I couldn’t ask anything more out of them.”

FHS boys hockey tops Wellesley to advance in D1 playoffs

Via, we share the results of the FHS winter sports action on Saturday: 

Boys Hockey - Division 1 = #19 Franklin, 6 @ #14 Wellesley, 2 – Final 
– Dylan Marchand scored a hat trick, helping the Panthers jump out to a 5-0 lead that it would never relinquish, booking a spot in the Round of 16 and a rematch with Hingham. Domenic Lampasona opened the scoring for Franklin after nearly seven minutes and Marchand added a pair of goals in the next two minutes to break the game open. Marchand completed his hat trick a minute into the second and then Ryan Sicchio pounced on a rebound for a power play goal to make it 5-0. Wellesley would get on the board before the end of the period, jumping on a rebound after a pair of stellar saves by Cole Pouliot-Porter. Franklin cleared off a major penalty, but late in the third (again after a couple of Pouliot-Porter saves) Wellesley would add a second. Only seconds later, Ben Jarosz found an empty net to seal the victory.

MIAA Statement Reiterating Masking Guidelines - 01/13/22

To:         MIAA Membership
From: Dr. Robert Baldwin, Executive Director
Re:         MIAA Masking Guidelines
Date: January 13, 2022

I have learned throughout my career that the only thing worse than a lack of information is a mixed message. Yesterday, the MIAA Basketball Committee voted to recommend to the Association’s Board of Directors that basketball players and officials have the option to not wear masks during play. This recommendation is well within their purview, and in this case, serves as a recommendation only to the Board of Directors.

This memo intends to provide our members with a clear message regarding Mask Wearing Guidelines and what continues to be the intent of this Association as a whole. The protocols that take place within the school day should be consistent with the behaviors that occur in co-curricular activities. That is why the MIAA has been in lockstep with DESE’s masking recommendations.

I attended a meeting yesterday where an esteemed medical doctor said that the current surge is 20 fold higher than the first surge when COVID 19 began. This is not the time to be sending a mixed message regarding masking guidelines to our membership. DESE recently extended its mask requirement for all K-12 public schools in Massachusetts through February 28, 2022, based upon the current Omicron surge. It is the intent of the MIAA to stay the course as well.

I will reiterate guidelines that were communicated on November 23, 2021, and again on December 21, 2021. Student-athletes, coaches, and officials that are indoors shall be masked. Uniform compliance collectively adhered to by local authorities for ALL student-athletes throughout the Commonwealth eliminates mixed messages and continues to be the expectation during this heightened cycle of COVID 19. Proper mask-wearing (nose and mouth fully covered) is the expectation needed for the safety of our students and school communities.
Masking guidelines for school events at off-campus venues adhere to this same guideline as well. It is important during this time that we collectively and consistently continue to enforce proper mask-wearing of coaches and student- athletes at practices and athletic contests.

In closing, I respect and honor the difficulty of local control. However, I felt the need to send a clear and consistent message to our member schools that we will continue to stay the course as we continue to navigate the current winter season.

Paula Lupien - Named 2020-2021 MIAA Gymnastics Coach of the Year

Franklin High School is proud to announce that Paula Lupien has been named the 2020-2021 MIAA Gymnastics Coach of the Year

“Earning this prestigious honor does not surprise me in the least. When it comes to coaching, Coach Lupien is the total package”, states Athletic Director, Tom Angelo. “I attribute the success of our Gymnastics program to Coach Lupien’s meticulous attention to detail, her love for her student-athletes, and overall dedication to the coaching profession. 

Paula Lupien
Paula Lupien

The 2020-2021 winter season was Coach Lupien’s 5th year at the helm, culminating in an undefeated season, a Hockomock League title, and a 1st place finish in the Hockomock League Tournament. A professional member of USA Gymnastics, Coach Lupien’s primary goal is to build trust with her athletes and to bring out the best in themselves by setting a high bar and accomplishing their goals. “Paula is an incredible person who embodies everything that is right about the coaching profession. We are so fortunate to have her as part of our coaching staff”, states Tom Angelo. 

Over the past 5 years, Coach Lupien has involved her team in various community service projects in and around Franklin, MA. Some of these projects include Blankets for Cancer, Toy/Pajamas/Blanket drive for children in foster care, a Franklin Food Pantry drive, distributing holiday wreaths, and hosting gymnastics clinics for Best Buddies, and area youth programs.

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association selects their “Coaches of the Year” based upon excellence in character, impact upon students and community, and coaching credentials. 

Coach Lupien will be honored by the MIAA  at a celebratory awards banquet in January.
