Under the Lights: Ex-Astro great Morgenstern giving back

Where are they now?

Former Eagle-Tribune cross country MVP Ashley Morgenstern from Pinkerton is studying at the University of North Carolina Dental School and over the summer provided free dental care in Malawi.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to Windham cross country coach Chris White (27 tomorrow), Eagle-Tribune colleague David Willis (turns the big 3-0 Wednesday), Merrimack lacrosse player Tim Oteri of Andover (20 Friday), Methuen Hall of Famer John Feugill (38 Friday) and Andover assistant track coach Art Iworsley (67 Saturday).

Livingston the dream

Tyler Livingston has a crazy story. The 6-5 forward went from second-team All-Division 1 last winter at Alvirne to a starter averaging 7.8 points and 4.0 rebounds this year as a freshman walk-on at UMass Lowell. Coach Pat Duquette had never even met him before he asked for a tryout in September.

Overlooked stabile

Apologies to Jessica Stabile, who was inadvertently left out of a story on all the talented athletes from her family. A dean’s list student majoring in biology/pre-med at Quinnipiac, she was a tri-captain for the 2010 North Andover High soccer team.

Kidd you not

New Haven Register columnnist Chip Malafronte on why Nets coach Jason Kidd was fined $50,000 for intentionally spilling a drink to stop play: “The amount of that fine stands to reason. It’s just enough to cover the cost of a small soda at the Barclays Center.”

Brown-bound

Congratulations to Windham’s talented junior scholar-athlete Rachel Lanouette who already has committed to Brown to play field hockey.

Abdication of duty

It’s always disappointing to see local athletic directors unprofessionally refuse to return calls when there is a controversy. That’s part of the job you’re being well paid to do and ducking the story generally makes it worse.

Identical scores

Believe it or not, on the same night recently, Centennial High of California won its football and basketball games by identical 86-56 scores. Tre Watson rushed for 519 yards and scored six TDs in the wild football playoff game. Centennial gained a national record 946 yards in the game.

strawberry patch

Ex-baseball slugger Darryl Strawberry spends a lot of time in Connecticut these days. His daughter, Jade Strawberry, is a standout 5-11 freshman volleyball player at UConn and his son, Jordan Strawberry, is a 6-2 post-grad guard at prep basketball power South Kent.
