Caitlin Dell'Orfano commits to SNHU

HARLEM native IS SOX FAN

Merrimack College basketball star Gelvis Solano, who is averaging a team-high 22.5 points per game, is from Harlem but is a Boston Red Sox fan. He became a Red Sox fan because his dad is one.

“I just don’t like the Yankees,” he said. “The only part of the Yankees I like is probably Robinson Cano. I hate A-Rod. I just don’t like him.”

Well, Solano said this Wednesday before Cano, then a free agent, signed a 10-year contract with the Seattle Mariners. So now, there apparently is nothing Solano likes about the baseball team from the Bronx.

VONLEH ARTICLE

In case you missed it, SI.com ran an article on Haverhill’s Noah Vonleh, who is playing basketball at Indiana University. It is titled, “Indiana benefiting from hoops obsession of Vonleh, the other top frosh.”

Vonleh averaging 13.3 points per game and 10.0 rebounds per game.

The unranked Hoosiers are 7-2. The two loses came against ranked teams, UConn and Syracuse.

Vonleh and Indiana will play Oakland at 7 p.m. tomorrow on ESPN2.

CONGRATS CAITLIN

Caitlin Dell’Orfano, who helped Central Catholic girls basketball win a state championship last year and is a senior on this year’s squad, has committed to play at Southern New Hampshire University.

BELICHICK LOVE

A Christmas tree at the Billerica library is decorated with paper ornaments on which kids wrote what made them thankful.

Most of the kids wrote the obvious things: my mother, my dad, my sister, my pets, etc.

But one of the ornaments stated: “I am thankful for Bill Belichick.”

PELLETIER TO BE HONORED

Central baseball coach Marc Pelletier is one four coaches this year who will be inducted into the Massachusetts Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. He and the three others will be honored at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough on Jan. 24-26, 2014.
