From ice to diamond

Georgetown multi-sport star Colby Ingraham has been cleared to resume baseball activities following his torn ACL suffered during football season. Most are probably familiar with Colby and his brother, C.J. Ingraham, who was also a star on the diamond for the Royals. But did you know the older generation stood out on the ice?

Their father, Bob Ingraham, played four years of hockey at Air Force, scoring 43 goals and totalling 114 points in three seasons as a defenseman.

Bob’s brother Cal Ingraham began his career at Air Force, before moving to the University of Maine and scoring a team-high 46 goals and 85 points for the Black Bears for the 1992-93 season.

More amazing? Cal did that at just 5-foot-5. His linemate was future NHL Hall of Famer Paul Kariya.

Super season

North Andover’s Brian Pinho is delivering an outstanding season in the country’s top junior hockey league, the USHL.

The Providence College-bound Pinho, a Washington Capitals draft pick, is second on the USHL’s Indiana Ice in points (44) and third in goals (20).

Former Pinkerton star and fellow Capitals pick and USHL standout Zach Sanford, meanwhile, has 16 goals and 32 points for the Waterloo Black Hawks. He is headed to Boston College.

Don’t Overlook

From players currently starring in the USHL to a player that may be headed there in two years. Austin Prep hockey team may have fallen short in the Super 8 finals to four-time champion Malden Catholic, but it took a super-human effort by Haverhill’s Elijah Harris to carry the Cougars to the title game.

In a semifinals upset of top-ranked BC High, Harris made 30 saves and allowed just a single goal in regulation and two overtimes, then stopped 8 of 10 attempts in the shootout to earn the win. Harris made 23 saves in the title game.
