With two seasons complete, the race to see which high school athletics programs are having the most successful year is heating up. The Globe’s Scholastic Awards use game scores to compile the win-loss percentages of every school in Eastern Massachusetts. Based on the results so far in the four main divisions, it may come down to the last day of the spring season.
Dalton Division 1: Defending champion Franklin is holding onto a slim lead over Masconomet Regional. The Panthers have won 72 percent of their games, going 60-30-6 this winter. Masco has won 71.46 percent after a 64-34-4 winter. Andover is third at 69.32.
Ames Division 2: Led by hockey teams that went a combined 34-3-3, Beverly is running away with this division, with a won-loss percentage of 75.52. Wellesley is second at 69.07, with Reading Memorial close behind in third at 68.75.
Dalton Division 3: Medfield holds the slimmest of leads over Newburyport. Through two seasons Medfield has won 69.70 percent of its games, while the Clippers check in at 69.44. Scituate is third at 67.58.
Ames Division 4: Led by an 18-2 record from the girls’ basketball team, West Bridgewater is on top with a win-loss percentage of 67.89. But Holbrook is close behind, checking in at 67.65 percent. Abington is third at 66.39.
