Leaders from MVC

The Merrimack Valley Conference has traditionally not been known as a passing league, but times have certainly changed. A look at the current Eastern Mass. football leaders show that.

Andover quarterback C.J. Scarpa leads all Division 1 quarterbacks with 30 TD passes and the runner-up is Lowell quarterback Cam Latta with 19. Billerica’s Jordan Bolarinho, who has missed the last two games with an injury, is fourth with 14. Moreover, the top three receivers — Andover’s Cam Farnham and Will Heikkinen and Billerica’s Matt Clifford are all from the MVC.

And it’s virtually the same thing in Divisdion 2. Haverhill’s Tom Morgan leads the way with 17 TD passes and Lawrence sophomore Nelson Valerio is tied for second with 15. Also, Haverhill’s Jordan Javier and Lawrence’s George Urena are tied for the most touchdown receptions with nine apiece.

Familiar-name bowls

The New England prep school bowl lineup was announced Sunday and two of the bowls have familiar names.

The Tom Flaherty Bowl, named after the Pentucket football coach, features Governor’s Academy and Cheshire Academy and the Dan Rorke Bowl — in honor of the former Brooks coach friom Haverhill — will pit St. Luke’s against the Hyde School.

Coach misses tourney

Veteran St. John’s Prep golf coach Larry O’Neill wasn’t on hand for the Division 1 state tournament last week, in which the Eagles finished third, but he had a good excuse. O’Neill had originally planned on being at the tournament, but it was postponed from the previous week because of hurricane Sandy and he had knee replacement surgery scheduled prior to the new date.

Thanks, Manchester!

The Manchester (N.H.) Marathon made a lot of friends the weekend before last. When the New York City Marathon came to the rescue.

The Manchester City Marathon saved many runners who had trained for months by extending its registration to accommodate displaced New York City marathoners. More than 400 runners were last-minute additions.
