Spencer Bergholtz is a three sport high school athlete.
Many of the athletes competing on winter high school sports teams are watching their seasons wind down, but some, like Spencer Bergholtz, are getting ready to play another sport this spring. We sat down with Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School student Spencer Bergholtz, who currently serves as the assistant captain on the combination Salem/Hamilton-Wenham hockey team.
