As the weather finally warmed this past weekend, official games also arrived at long last for some of New England's premier prep school programs.
In all, over a half-dozen clubs from throughout the region played non-conference games as the rest of the NEPSAC dusted off the cobwebs with scrimmages and practices ahead of the real thing this week.
The highest mark came via Brunswick, which rolled past William Penn Charter, 13-2, at home on Saturday. The Bruins, picked No. 2 in our preseason coaches poll, welcomed the program from Philadelphia, Pa., ahead of a trip on Tuesday to face nationally-renowned Boys Latin School of Maryland.
