Spring can be the most challenging season for a high school athlete. How do you stay focused on your team and keep thoughts of the beach, pool parties, and lazy summer days out of your mind? It isnt easy. But this spring, lacrosse players in Duxbury and runners in Westwood did just that. And there were many others. Today the Globe toasts those athletes who survived spring fever -- and frequent rainstorms -- to become All-Scholastics.
