Methuen volleyball needs to play to make tourney

(Continued)

Graham and the Hawks, however, could be turning the corner. Last week they threw a scare into first-place AIC before falling 37-34.

Streak snapped

When Barnstable’s volleyball team fell to Newton North 3-2 last week it ended a 41-match winning streak dating back Nov. 2 2010 vs. Medfield. Barnstable has won 14 state championships, including last year when it beat Central Catholic 3-0. The Red Raiders rallied from down 2-0 to defeat Andover 3-2 in the 2010 state semifinals.

Local college hoops

The college basketball season is suddenly upon us. The Northern Essex men’s team will open its season this weekend (see preview in today’s Eagle-Tribune) at the New Hampshire Tech Tournament while the Merrimack College men (Nov. 9 at Bentley Classic) and women (Nov. 8 host Fisher) open next week.

Coaching change

Medford High replaced Rico Dello Iacono after three games and promoted assistant Jason Nascimento on a temporary basis. Medford had been outscored 90-7 in its first three games and was just 6-27 overall under Iacono. Since 2000, its record is a dismal 21-108.

Medford has lost four straight since, but two games were by only a touchdown. Two weeks after Dello Iacono was let go, Peabody’s Scott Wlasuk resigned under pressure.
