Championship sisters

Georgetown sisters Giulia and Olivia Orlando played key roles for the Tilton girls basketball team, which repeated as Class B champions, routing Pomfret 71-39 in the finals. Giulia is a junior point guard while the 5-10 Olivia is a freshman swing player who led the team in scoring and rebounding even though she didn’t start.

Flagg’S EFFort for naught

Austin Prep’s girls hockey team bowed out of the state tournament in the semifinals despite another sensational game by Methuen goalie Caty Flagg. Austin lost 2-1 in overtime to Arlington Catholic on a goal by Adrieana Rossini.

Flagg made 37 saves for the game, many of the spectacular nature.

“We knew Caty (Flagg) was an unbelievable goalie, but we knew we had to go at her and there had to be a break sometime,” said Rossini.

Local All-Americans

Joining former Central Catholic standout Ryan O’Boyle, who finished fourth at 133 pounds for McDaniel College, two other local wrestlers earned All-American status at the Division 3 wrestling Nationals at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, over the weekend. Salem’s David Welch, a sophomore at Roger Williams, was seventh at 184 while teammate Collin Crowell of Hampstead, N.H., was eighth at 165.

Resigns after loss

Lynn English’s girls basketball team, which defeated Central Catholic in the Division 1 North finals, suffered a double loss in the state semifinals last week.

Not only did English lose to Braintree 59-41 but head coach Fred Hogan announced his resignation after the game. Hogan didn’t give a specific explanation and said that he would still be coaching somewhere.

Coach suspends starters

Speaking of coaching, there was a terrific article in the March 10 issue of Sports Illustrated about a California High School coach, Grunderson High’s Mike Allen, who got fed up with his team. He suspended all his starters and, when eight players then left the team in protest, he was left with four players.
