  • The boys varsity baseball team played 2 hard fought games against Hayden and Garth Webb to qualify for the semi-finals on Friday.  Daniel Arruda went 3 for 4 to lead the offense and strong pitching by Hayden Zweig, Robbie Gauthier, Max Lanoue and rookie Ethan Malicki held the opponents to only 7 runs.

  • If you have any fun snapchat memories or videos from this school year, please send them to OTHS YEAR END VIDEO on Instagram, if you would like them to be featured in the annual year end video played at the year end assembly.
