Westford boys hoop coach Scollan steps down

Long-time Westford Academy head coach Ed Scollan is calling it a career, after the Grey Ghosts bowed out in yesterday's Division 1 North quarterfinals.

Scollan said he made his decision before the season this would be his last at Westford, and made the announcement official to his team after the Grey Ghosts dropped a 64-62 thriller to Lexington yesterday, ending their season at 18-5.

"It has been a great run, Westford Academy has been terrific to me, now after many years I want to focus that energy on other things, whatever those things may be," Scollan wrote in an email to ESPNBoston.com this morning.

He finished his career at Westford 333-217.
