Four years ago, Hallie Vitagliano hit a buzzer-beating half-court shot — still featured on YouTube — that lifted the Newton North girls’ basketball team to an improbable win against Newton South. Vitagliano, a three-sport athlete for the Tigers, still has the shooting eye as a reserve guard and women’s captain at Wheaton College in Norton. Vitagliano was hitting 47 percent of her field goal attempts and was 5 for 5 during her team’s victory over Mount Ida College.
Patrick Benzan of Wellesley and Ryan Sewall of Newton have been named captains of the boys’ varsity soccer team at Roxbury Latin School. Globe All-Scholastic Andrew Wheeler-Omuinu of Bellingham and goalkeeper Will O’Sullivan of Needham were captains on this year’s squad, which captured the NEPSAC Class B title.
Dennis Baker Jr., son of Bellingham High softball coach and retired athletic director Dennis Baker Sr., has been hired as softball coach at Hopkinton High.
