Patch editor gives a first-hand report from the Boston Marathon.
Monday, April 15 was my first time running the Boston Marathon. It was supposed to be a fun day focused on overcoming a strenuous 26.2-mile race, but once I reached the end, I was greeted with panic, caution and tears rather than high fives and celebrations. Monday was a perfect day for a runner and a spectator, it was sunny and warm with a cool breeze. It would be hard to find an excuse why anyone with the day off from work wouldn’t be in town to either watch the race, the Sox game or to grab a bite at a restaurant. I was running this marathon as a bandit. I had no official number and was nervous security or someone from the Boston Athletic Association would kick me out. Once I reached the start line, it was smooth sailing. I was full …

Here are the Dedham runners registered in the Boston Marathon this year.

The 117th annual Boston Marathon takes place on April 15 this year, taking runners through the course that threads from the Hopkinton starting line to Boston. As it states on the official website, "the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world's most prestigious road racing events.

Forty eight wrestlers worked hard for eight weeks learning takedowns, breakdowns and pinning combinations.
The Dedham Recreation Elementary Wrestling program concluded its eleventh successful season on Monday, March 11th. Forty eight wrestlers worked hard for eight weeks learning takedowns, breakdowns and pinning combinations. Our wrestlers are separated by grade level, where they mastered the single and double leg takedowns. On the mat, they learned how to breakdown their opponent to pin his shoulders to the mat for a quick victory. The best part of practice and the real reason they come, is the killer games of King of the Ring, Bull Rush, Kings and Scorpion. The program would like to thank all of their volunteer coaches, who helped keep the “Little Bulldogs” focused on having fun while learning a new sport. This year’s volunteer …

Dedham Athletic Director Michael Plansky said some baseball scrimmages may be affected by the field conditions.
With a snowy winter winding down and spring sports on-deck next week, Dedham High School's natural grass athletic fields may not be available to some of the teams in time for their first practice. "We hope to be ok with the start of sports," Dedham High School Athletic Director Michael Plansky said. "The main question is when we will be able to get on our baseball fields." Plansky said that some baseball scrimmages may be affected but the teams that use synthetic fields, such as the softball team should be okay. "Synthetic turf will be fine. Grass baseball fields will take some time to get ready," Plansky said.

Down to a man, Dedham`s 7th grade Metrowest Basketball team stood silently on the court, staring in disbelief at the scoreboard. Their enchanted season had just come to an end.
Following a long, hard-fought, undefeated 12 week season, the boys had earned their way in to a 16 team, bracket-style playoff tournament. Their unblemished record however, came with a price. When the season began in December, the boys were assigned to play in Division III. By winning as many games as they had, the team was reviewed and “moved up” to play opponents from Division II in the playoffs. As in any sport, when you move up a Division, your competition becomes a little bit bigger, a little bit quicker, and assumedly a little bit better. On Sat. March 2, Dedham High School played host to all 8 games of the Division in the Tournament. As the day progressed, teams from around the area came and went. Dedham was scheduled to meet …
