Coming into the 2016-17 NBA season, the Boston Celtics had some lofty expectations placed upon them. With the additions of Al Horford in free agency and Jaylen Brown in the draft, the Celtics were expected to finish second in the Eastern Conference behind the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. But with those two additions, the solid two-way play of Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart, and the otherworldly offensive explosion from Isaiah Thomas, the Celtics exceeded those expectations.
A annual Relay for Life event was held in the athletic center on Saturday night into Sunday morning last weekend. The event raised nearly $14,000 to support those with cancer. If you missed out, take a look at some photos from the event below.

The 2016 regular season for the Red Sox went as well as anyone could have expected. There was so much excitement, not only from the team winning the AL East, but in the way David Ortiz played out his farewell season, and the emergence of the young players on the roster. The Sox entered the playoffs as the trendy World Series pick, but once the playoffs started, everything went wrong. The Cleveland Indians swept the Sox and Ortiz’s career failed to achieve the storybook ending everyone had hoped for.
The 2017 season launches a new era in Red Sox baseball. Ortiz will not be on the team for the first time in 14 years, newly-acquired Chris Sale will be leading the pitching staff, and Mookie Betts will be the face of the team. The answers to five key questions can help tell who the Red Sox will be this season.

The opinion section of The 1851 Chronicle is vital for communication students to air their viewpoints in a constructive and well thought manner. It provides a tremendous learning platform for students, including myself in years prior, to work on writing skills and defending a side in opinion-based topics.
