Peters: national runner-up

Timberlane’s Ryan Peters finished second last week at the freshman wrestling nationals at Virginia Beach in the 138-pound division. Also, Haverhill’s Lucien Chretien was eighth at 220.

In the sophomore nationals, St. John’s Prep’s Ian Butterbrodt of North Andover was fifth at 220. Of note in the senior nationals were the second-place finish of Billerica’s Leo Trindade at 220 and the third-place finish of Mount Anthony’s Miguel Calixto at 126. Mount Anthony heavyweight Jesse Webb was fifth in the junior nationals.

At the FloNationals in Pennsylvania, North Andover’s Brad Drover advanced to the 160-pound quarterfinals before suffering a broken wrist. Teammate Fritz Hoehn also competed at FloNationals.

Use of Trinity

Trinity Stadium in Haverhill got plenty of use during March, which benefited a number of colleges and was quite helpful for Stadium funding. With almost all other fields unplayable, Assumption College, American International College, Southern Connecticut, Merrimack and Northern Essex all used Trinity for baseball games and practices.

Wrestling out at BU

Boston University has become the latest school to drop wrestling as an NCAA sport. Next season will be the last for the Terriers, who have a strong tradition in the sport. Former Timberlane star and current Springfield College coach Jay Holder is a former captain at BU and twice made it to the NCAA tournament.

North Andover senior Ryan Neals was considering BU as a destination next year but he may head to Drexel now. He took a visit there last week.

Haverhill girls hockey

Haverhill High is in the planning stage of forming a girls co-op hockey team with another school and an announcement may be made soon. The goalie for the boys JV team this year was freshman Michaela Kane.

Strange firing

Folks close to University of Denver and NCAA hockey were stunned by the recent firing of Denver head coach George Gwozdecky. He has coached Denver to 12 straight 20-win seasons and had won two national titles in that span. His record over 19 years was 443-267-64.
