New Plymouth State coach

Ryan Schieding has been named the new head wrestling coach at Plymouth State. Schieding is a former standout wrestler at Plymouth State who previously was an assistant coach for the Panthers and has been the head wrestling coach at Manchester Memorial since 2009.

While he was at Plymouth State as a wrestler, Schieding was coached by ex-Timberlane standout Jason Holder, who is now the head coach at Springfield College.

State record in dash

In case you missed it, at the All-State track meet, Barnstable’s Amanda Henson not only became the first girl in state meet history to win both the 100 and 200 meters, but her 200 time of 24.43 was a state meet record and state all-time best. Her 100 time of 12.12 was the fastest in the state this year.

Figuereo shines on track

Haverhill’s Noelia Figuereo had an excellent rookie season in track for Merrimack College. A sophomore who was a two-time national champ at Northern Essex Community College, she was NE-10 Rookie of the Year indoors and all-region outdoors. She had best times of 12.01 in the 100 meters and 25.19 in the 200.

Also earning all-region honors, in the 800, was Briana Devereaux of Londonderry.

Bruins loaded in net

There may be no team better stocked in goal than the Boston Bruins. Not only is Tuukka Rask one of the top goalies in the league, but they have a fine backup in Anton Khudobin, who is 15-4-1 with a 2.03 goals-against average in NHL games.

Khudobin is an unrestricted free agent, but not to worry. The B’s third goalie is 23-year-old Niklas Svedberg, who was 37-8-2 with a 2.17 goals-against average at Providence this year and was named the league’s most outstanding goalie.

No more Fudge

After a tenure of close to five years, Dave Fudge has stepped down as the president of the Pentucket Athletic Association. Fudge has been a driving force in increased fund raising for Pentucket athletics and has helped formulate ongoing plans for a new outdoor complex.
