The North Andover Fire U12 soccer team received a Tweet from none other than soccer legend Mia Hamm (@MiaHamm).
She Tweeted: “Good luck to the North Andover Fire: Kate (Cheevers), Olivia (Adamic), Ava (Sauls), Riley (Cinquegrano), Madison (Landry), Liz (Steinberg), Izzy (Ceraso), Emma (Liporto), Kylie (Palumbo), Molly (Connolly), Peyton (Sportelli) and Christina (Farmer). Listen to your coach.”
Apparently a former Tar Heel lives on the North Shore and made the request to Hamm, the wife of ex-Red Sox star Nomar Garciaparra.
Peter Flynn, who set a program record with 150 wins and two EMass. Super Bowl titles, has stepped down after 23 years at Billerica.
