Sports in a Minute: Salute to Reggies great season

Memorable year for Reggies

Kudos to Greater Lawrence Tech, which went 17-5 this winter, its most wins in 25 years. The Reggies were ousted in the North quarterfinals Saturday by Stoneham, 55-42.

“I told them that they can be sad right now,” said coach Dan Habib. “It will hurt, it is going to be tough. But I told them that when they leave the locker room I wanted their heads to be high because this was a great year.”

Oscar Reynoso scored a game-high 12 points, Frankely Estrella added nine points and Alexis Estrella and Anthony Fabian each added six.

remembers SJP-Central rivalry

Before Notre Dame men’s basketball team played North Carolina on Monday night, in Durham, N.C., former St. John’s Prep star Pat Connaughton, a junior captain for the Fighting Irish, was asked about the SJP-Central rivalry.

“I remember this rivalry very clearly,” said Connaughton. “Ever since I was a freshman playing vs. Billy Marsden and Adrian Gonzalez, who was an athletic lefty, there was always something more that went into the Prep vs. Central game at the end of the year.

“They were the big dogs in the state,” recalled Connaughton. “We were the ‘rich school’ that they always beat on. I was so determined to change that before I left. Coach (Sean) Connolly helped me do just that and the games became battles down to the wire until we finally edged them out twice my senior year, eventually winning the state championship. And that’s when I knew I was able to help put the Prep on the map for basketball as well as everything else it stands for. I wouldn’t change anything about the experience.”

Kudos to Dean College

Dean College in Franklin, Mass. pulled the Div. 2 Jr. College version of the 2003-04 UConn Huskies with the men’s and women’s basketball teams winning their Regional Championships on the same day last Saturday to advance to the District 2 Championship this Saturday. If both teams win they will advance to the Div. 2 national tournament.
