Barry brothers stick together

Central Catholic twins Ryan Barry and Mike Barry each made major contributions to the Raiders on the gridiron, and now they have made the decision to continue their football careers together. The brothers have committed to play football at Saint Anselm.

Ryan is a two-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star lineman, while Mike is a wide receiver/punter who caught the game-tying, overtime touchdown on Thanksgiving 2011 that set up Matt McDermott’s winning 2-point conversion.

It’s not Noah

Don’t be fooled by any twitter account claiming to be Indiana-bound Haverhill hoops legend Noah Vonleh.

The current New Hampton star, who is already being called a future NBA lottery pick, said in a story this week he does not have a twitter account.

If you’re looking for Vonleh info on twitter, you’re better off looking to The Eagle-Tribune’s Hector Longo (@MVcreature) and Michael Muldoon (@MullyET).

Cardarelli back at Garden

Haverhill singer and TD Garden favorite Jillian Cardarelli will be back in Boston on March 2, to perform the National Anthem before the Boston Bruins take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 1 p.m. matinee.

Cardarelli’s new album “Just Me & You” was released on iTunes in January. She is currently attending college and pursuing her singing career in Nashville.

Quote of the day

“I know this isn’t exactly Phil Jackson leaving the Lakers,”

—Longtime area coach John McVeigh said (jokingly) about stepping down as Andover High girls lacrosse coach.

McVeigh resigned as Golden Warriors head coach in November after eight seasons, compiling a 146-31-2 record and winning Eagle-Tribune Coach of the Year honors in 2011. He noted his growing family (he has a young son and daughter) and time dedication as Brooks varsity basketball coach as reasons for leaving the lacrosse team.
