The snow has melted and Eastern Massachusetts has plodded through another
long winter. On the scholastic landscape, it was a winter that featured new
champions (the Chelmsford girls gymnastic team), familiar faces (Lowells
Brian Sheehan, Braintrees David Ellis), and a host of great individual
feats, led by Ayla Brown of Nobles. The Globe toasts the athletes who
made this winter a little less chilling and a lot more thrilling.
