Watertown High School had three students selected as honorees in the Will McDonough Writing Contest, including two first place winners.
The contest, named after the former Boston Globe sportswriter, received more than 1,200 entries from students around the area this year, and Watertown had its share of success.
Watertown’s Sofia Farhadi received first place in the 12th grade contest, and Nicole Frisoli got first place in the 11th grade competition.
Also honored was senior Nathan Ryan, who received an honorable mention.
The first place winners were honored at a ceremony at the The Sports Museum at the TD Garden in Boston. Longtime sportscaster Sean McDonough (son of Will McDonough) spoke to the winners and the ceremony also featured appearances and speeches from his sister Erin McDonough, sportswriter Jackie MacMullan, and Celtics Vice President of Media Services/Alumni Relations Jeff Twiss, according to The Sports Museum.
