Ranger relayers set school mark at Nationals

Methuen’s sprint medley relay team made the trip to North Carolina a memorable one yesterday, with their performance at the National Scholastic Championships in Greensboro.

The Rangers snapped the school record and finished 14th overall in the Championship Division with a 3:34.45 clocking that bested the old mark of 3:34.62 set at the nationals in 2006.

WELLS FIRES LEGION NO-NO

Fresh off an amazing run with Whittier Tech to the Eastern Mass. Championship game, Andrew Wells let the American Legion folks understand he’s not done for the summer.

The Worcester State-bound righty dominated Danvers Legion with a no-hitter in a mere 65 pitches.

“I think he went to one three-ball count,” said Methuen coach Dave Mosher.

Wells fanned eight and was one error from a perfect game. That runner was erased on an attempted steal as Wells faced the minimum 21 hitters.

Cam Cyr, Nick Delois and Gary Carbonneau drove in runs for Methuen, which made good use of its five hits.

NECC’S PETERS LIFTS SALEM LEGION

Dan Peters pitched 6.1 innings of shutout ball and earned the victory for Salem Legion, 3-1, over Dover.

C.J. Beaulieu and Mike Ryan added some relief help for 1-0 Salem. Mitch Dufton led a frugal Salem offense with a pair of hits, scoring twice and driving in another.
