This article was submitted by supporters of Swampscott High basketball. The first student-run car wash of the school year is here, and none too soon for those of you who have been procrastinating getting your car washed. The SHS Girls Basketball team — arguably the hardest working team in town — is washing cars on Saturday, Sept. 1, from 9-1 at the DPW garage, 200 Paradise Road. The rain date is Sunday. The team asks for a $5 donation. Proceeds will be used to help pay for buses to away scrimmages (the school only pays for buses to regularly scheduled games) and participation in a fall league with most of the other NEC teams.

The Big Blue girls basketball team moved to 5-1 on the season with a convincing 48-26 win over rival Marblehead Tuesday. Coach Jack Hughes said his team's defense was key to their win on the Marblehead court. "Offensively we weren't with it," he said.

Ara Talkov blocked shots and converted plays on offense driving to the hoop. The offense started clicking in the second half. At one point Jesse DePaolo took deep shot and yelled in disgust knowing the …
