FROM JAGUAR TO RIVER HAWK

Whatever the division, UMass Lowell baseball and coach Ken Harring continue to clean up on the local talent.

The latest River Hawk-to-be is Windham High righty Jeff Peterson. The senior pitched called Harring and committed yesterday.

“Division 1 baseball will most certainly be a challenge, but I’m ready to take it head on,” said Peterson, the first Division 1 commit in the short history of Windham High baseball.

Peterson was huge last spring, going 6-3 with a 2.85 ERA and 49 strikeouts in 46.2 innings for the New Hampshire Division 2 semifinalists.

“That program is really playing well, and I’m so excited about being there,” said Peterson, who just so happens to be headed to the alma mater of his new head coach, Jason Matthews. “We’ll sit down with coach Harring soon and talk about the money and all that stuff. I’m just ready to help them win.”

In other recruiting news out of Windham, senior Connor Whittemore will move on and play collegiately at Division 3 Fitchburg State.

Matthews takes over a talented Windham crew this spring, one that could again challenge in D2.

The Jags will have to replace the Moynihan brothers, Dan and Connor, who went on to play junior hockey in Canada.

“They’re my best friends, and we all wish them well,” said Peterson. “Hopefully, they’ll both be NHL-bound very soon.”

THE NEXT GENERATION

If you haven’t had your hoop fix yet and your Sunday slate is clean, Tewksbury High is a place you might think about visiting as the Merrimack Valley Youth Basketball League hosts its Championship Sunday. Beginning at 8 a.m., the 7th and 8th grade divisional title games will roll continuously through the day with the last game of the day ­­— the 8th grad “A” Division title game — set to tip at 5:30 p.m.
