Sports in a Minute: Pentucket grad Poretta starring in classroom and boardroom at BC

BC FINALIST

Senior Alanna Poretta is one of five finalists for the prestigious Huse Award, given to a BC student who has excelled in management and leadership studies. The Pentucket graduate has a 3.65 GPA and has done internships with Level UP, Merganser Capital Management and Eaton Vance. She already has accepted a position with J.P. Morgan.

A four-year track letterman, Poretta’s top times this winter were 10:12.33 in the 3,000 and 17:26.69 in the 5,000.

REMEMBERING T.J.

Nice tribute from IAABO Board 130. The referees are honoring the late former local referee T.J. McEvoy of North Andover by wearing a “T.J.” patch. Proceeds go to charity. To get a patch e-mail Rich Napolitano at rjnref@yahoo.com.

CHAMPIONSHIP SISTERS

Freshman Olivia Orlando had 11 points and junior co-captain Giulia Orlando added seven as Tilton (21-3) rolled past Pomfret 71-39 in the New England Prep B championship game. The sisters are from Georgetown. Giulia started her career at Central Catholic.

CHAMPIONSHIP BROTHERS

Mitchell (6-1 freshman) and Max Kirsch (6-4 sophomore) of Atkinson play for Phillips Exeter, which topped Hotchkiss, 49-46, in the N.E. Prep Class AA finals. Junior Brendan Miller of North Andover helped Cushing beat Kimball Union for the Class A title.

HUGE UPSET

Holy Cross baseball opened some eyes by splitting a 4-game series with 7th ranked Mississippi State. In a 6-1 win, sophomore catcher Connor Perry from Haverhill and Central Catholic walked twice and threw out the only runner who attempted to steal.

He had a superb .992 fielding percentage as a freshman.

RECORD DEAL

Sydney Moss, ex-Patriot Randy Moss’ daughter, broke a 23-year-old NCAA Division 3 record with 63 points. A 5-10 transfer from Florida known for her distinctive mohawk, Moss led unbeaten Thomas More (Ky.) to a 106-88 win over Waynesburg.

MIKE MAGIC

UMass Lowell senior Mike Calzetta of Lawrence was named America East Player of the Week. The former Lancer great pitched 6.1 scoreless innings, while striking out seven against Cincinnati. He scattered three hits and didn’t walk a batter.
