The Raiders boys and girls basketball teams will both be returning to the State Tournament in 2019, with the boys hosting a first round game.
Watertown finished the regular season with a record of 12-8. The winner of Monday’s first round game will take on the winner of No. 2 Pentucket and No. 15 Bedford. The top seed in Div. 3 North is St. Mary’s of Lynn.
After a year away from the tournament, the Raiders girls basketball team is back in the bracket. Watertown will travel to face Shawsheen on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the MIAA Div. 3 North first round game.
Watertown qualified, despite having an 8-12 record on the Sullivan Rule. This rule helps teams in Leagues with upper division teams if they have a .500 record against teams in their own division.
The winner of Wednesday’s game would face No. 4 seed St. Mary’s of Lynn. The top seed in the girls Div. 3 North tournament is Latin Academy.
