Born deaf and blind, senior captain healthy and thriving in school and sports: Cole Wescott can overcome anything

By Jamie Pote

2018 Cole Wescott
Tewksbury Memorial High School senior Cole Wescott, shown here throwing the javelin during an earlier season meet, has overcome many challenges in his life, but has never let any of it stand in his way.

TEWKSBURY – Standing against a fence at the Tewksbury Memorial High School track, Cole Wescott had a smile from ear-to-ear.
