LEE LEAVING WINDHAM

After building his own baseball program from scratch, Derek Lee will step down at Windham High School.

“The toughest part was giving up the coaching position,”said Lee, who will move on to be the Social Studies Department head at Pinkerton Academy. “We reached the state semis in our third year of varsity competition.”

Lee was 22-32 in his three seasons, but the program is clearly on the upswing, at 13-7 this past spring with only one impact senior lost to graduation.

ROBBIE REBOUNDS

After a handful of troubled weekends on the Web.com Tour ended abruptly this week for Rob Oppenheim of Andover.

Oppenheim made the cut, then fired rounds of 69-65 over the weekend to work his way all the way up to a tie for 11th overall at the Air Capital Classic in Wichita. He had missed 2 of 10 cuts on the season, heading into this week and picked up a solid $14,300 check yesterday.

Up next this week on the Web.com Tour is the Rex Hospital Open in Raleigh, N.C.

HOT SHOTS READY FOR HEALEY

Ran into a couple of heavy hitters late Saturday afternoon, teeing it up Bradford Country Club.

Both URI’s Joe Leavitt, the defending champion, and Boston College’s Nick Pandelena confirmed they will be competing later this month in the Joseph F. Healey Memorial Championship.

The Healey, the top amateur event in the region, will be held over June 26, 27 and 29 at Haverhill Country Club, Crystal Lake Golf Club and Atkinson Country Club.

Leavitt took the Healey last year in a thrilling playoff. Pandelena will be playing the event for the first time.
