A Change(.org) gonna come?
An online petition is calling for, among other things, the dismissal of Lexington’s athletic director, who admitted last week to doctoring an email that immediately preceded the Middlesex League’s Title IX-driven decision to abandon its doubleheader basketball schedule. Last week, Naomi Martin, the athletic director at Lexington High, was given a week of unpaid leave after it came to light that she had fabricated information attributed to a Lexington parent in a November email to athletic directors across the Middlesex League. On Jan. 19, Superintendent of Schools Paul Ash sent an email to that same audience attempting to “correct the record” and calling Martin’s actions “unacceptable.” Earlier this week, a petition hit the interwebs …

It's a second straight early exit for the Lexington High varsity baseball team after a 10-7 lost to Newton North in MIAA North Division 1 preliminary round playoff action on Thursday, May 31.
The game ended as it began – with Chris Shaw, MVP of his league, waiting outside the home dugout. It was the bottom of the 9th, with one on, one out, the Minutemen trailing by three runs and Shaw in the hole. If he made it to the plate, Lexington’s senior slugger would have a chance to tie the game at 10s or put his team in the lead. But a lineout and a strikeout later, and the Minutemen’s do-or-die rally died with Shaw in the on-deck circle. And with that, Lexington High's baseball season was over. The Minutemen fell, 10-7, to the visiting Newton North Tigers during their MIAA North Division 1 preliminary round playoff game Thursday, May 31 in Lexington. Not a whole lot about this game went smoothly. It was a slow-developing, back-and-…
