Sports in a Minute

Catoggio stays hot

Former Haverhill High runner Tim Catoggio, a graduate of Stonehill College who now lives in South Boston, continues to impress on the road racing circuit. A week ago Sunday, he won the South Boston Boys and Girls Club St. Pat’s 5K with a time of 16:30. He must have been the favorite because he wore bib No. 1.

Female wrestling captain

For the first time, Phillips Academy will have a female wrestling captain next year. Alyssa Augustin of Bootin, N.J., a girls New England champ, was elected a co-captain along with Justin Mutchnick.

A year ago, Danielle Coughlin was a captain, as well as a Division 2 state champion, for North Andover.

Byrd to play in Spain

Pinkerton Academy senior Rachel Byrd of Hampstead will be playing softball for USA Americas Team New Hampshire. The team will play in three different Spanish cities in July.

Byrd, who also plays for the Northeast Hurricanes out of Salem, is at full strength after rehabbing a knee injury suffered last spring. She is gearing for the high school season while fundraising for the trip to Spain.

A solid Gray

In case you missed it, Governor Academy’s junior Mackenzie Gray of Andover finished 14th in the triple jump New Balance nationals in New York City with a fine 38-31/2 jump. She currently ranks No. 6 all-time indoors in Massachusetts. Gray’s career best is 39-3 last spring.

This was the same meet, of course, that Andover High set a state and New England record in the 4x55 shuttle hurdles with a seventh-place time of 33.53.

The Andover team consisted of Lizzie Kobelski, Hannah Chapman, Jillian Gamache and Courtney Comeau.

Free throw winners

Pentucket 5th graders won both shooting contests out of 15 teams at a youth Cape Ann competition at Salem State a week ago. Brady Paolino of Groveland won the free throw contest and Michael Cavanaugh of Merrimac won the 3-point contest.
