Hornets shooting for repeat championship in Division 3

It would be asking an awful lot for the North Reading baseball Hornets to perform as the boys hoop team did in the Cape Ann League this winter — that is rolling up a perfect, 20-0 season.

But if any team can do it, it might be this group from North Reading, which returns a full field of starters from its Division 3 state championship squad of a year ago. Both pitchers, R.J. Warnock and Ryan McAuliffe, return with the defense and some serious lumber behind them.

In the large division, the challenges should come from Masconomet at perennially tough Newburyport.

You simply can not overlook reigning Division 4 champ Georgetown or Lynnfield in the small.

Change is in the air in the Commonwealth Conference, where Greater Lawrence Tech has bumped down into the small division.

The Reggies will have to be a huge factor there, while Whittier lose plenty of punch but firmly believes it belongs with the big boys in the CAC.

Action in the CAL and CAC opened in the region yesterday.
