Snapshot: This weekend's best memories, milestones

It's February vacation week, which means it's holiday tournament time for many teams across the state as we draw near to next weekend's MIAA Tournament seedings. Here are some of the best moments from this past weekend.

Who can forget Brendan Durkin, Newton North's rapping team manager, who became the toast of Newton after his shot on the floor of TD Garden last month (There was also a memorable press conference).

In a cool touch, the three posed for a photo at the locker of old friend Isaac Yiadom of Doherty High, who enrolled early at BC after leading the Highlanders to the Division 4 state title last December.

I'll never get tired of shots of medal-winners biting their hardware:

Medfield senior forward Kristin Fechtelkotter notched her 1,000th career point today in a drubbing of Archbishop Williams, marking the first time in school history three Big Blue players have surpassed the mark in the same season.

Back to Canton, Sam Larson is the newest member of the Bulldogs' 1,000-point club:
