Sports in a Minute: Wells brings home the hardware

BASEBALL HARDWARE

Andrew Wells and the Whittier Tech baseball team were honored recently by the Mass. Baseball Coaches Association. Coach Joe Boland accepted the team’s Division 3 North championship plaque and Wells was named the D3 North tourney MVP. The rubber-armed Wells went 3-0 in the state tourney and will be playing for Worcester State this spring.

PENGUIN PRIDE

A recent Eagle-tribune story highlighted some top area athletes who’ve attended Cushing Academy in Ashburnham. Add to the list WWE star John Cena from the mean street of West Newbury, who was an all-star football lineman, ex-major league pitcher Sean DePaula of Derry and ex-Wake Forest baseball player Ricky Mendez of Andover.

PHENOM IN BOSTON

Pole vault world-record holder Jenn Suhr, world leaders Ryan Whiting (shot put) and Hagos Gebrhiwet (3,000) and a slew of other elite athletes will be competing at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix Feb. 8 at the Reggie Lewis Track in Boston.

The big name, though, is high school senior Mary Cain of Bronxville, N.Y., who has obliterated all the high school records with times of 1:59.51 in the 800, 4:24.11 in the mile and 9:38.68 in the 2-mile.

BETTER THAN TOM

The weekend before last was a tough one for Patriots QB Tom Brady but a memorable one for another Brady, Brady Paolino. The Pentucket 5th-grade travel team standout hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to beat Newburyport 43-42.

JIGGLING JARED

For someone who has limited athletic ability and is coming off back surgery, second-year Celtics forward Jared Sullinger is definitely too heavy. If I were coach Brad Stevens I’d bench him until he dropped 10 lbs.

3-POINT BOMBERS

After an 0-7 start, Dover (N.H.) High’s first win was memorable. The Green Wave made 15 3-pointers, including six in the first half by Anthony Lupi, in a 79-73 win over Nashua North. Lupi scored all of his 18 points in the half.
