Security for Cory

In case you missed it, former Phillips Academy and Boston College goalie Cory Schneider got a great deal of security last week when he signed a seven-year, $42 million contract extension with the New Jersey Devils.

Schneider, 28, was acquired by the Devils from Vancouver last season and was 16-15-12 in 45 games with a 1.97 goals-against average, which was third best in the league.

Lane to Phillips

Talented eighth grader Travis Lane of Georgetown will be attending Phillips Academy next fall and be an immediate help to the baseball program.

Playing for the Legends 14U Prospect team, which recently won the New England regional, Lane will play in two national tournaments later in the month He has hit .455 with four home runs and a whopping 48 RBIs in just 88 plate appearances this summer.

Down to three

The Northern Essex Community College men’s basketball team had 12 freshmen last year but, for a variety of reasons, only three will be returning.

Back for a second year are Haverhill’s Parker Rogers and Ryan Grant and Londonderry’s Chris Corey. Two of last year’s better players, Floridians Peterson Morency and Javonte Forbes, have transferred to Broward Community College in Miami.

Age beats youth

In the first Live Free or Die 5000 last weekend in Atkinson, N.H., 42-year-old Michael Fraysse of Derry finished first in 17:53. The runner-up, 20-year-old John Keisling of East Hampstead, was more than a minute behind. There were 216 finishers.

Meline gets position

Katie Meline, the daughter of longtime Pentucket cross country and track coach Steve Meline, has been named the Assistant Commissioner of the Liberty League. The headquarters for the league is located in Troy, NY.

The league includes founding members Clarkson University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the University of Rochester, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, St. Lawrence University, Skidmore College, and Union College.
