Sports in a Minute

Welch in lead

Haverhill’s Jefferson Welch seems to enjoy running in the Lowell area. After capturing the Classic T-Shirt 5K race last week in a solid 16:30, Welch is in control of the Good Times series racing series. It was his third win of the season in just five races. Kara Haas was the woman’s winner at the Classic T-Shirt race.

Rothman selected

After a standout sophomore season on the court that helped the Warriors post their best season in recent memory, Merrimack College rising junior Chloe Rothman has been selected to play in the 19th Annual Maccabiah Games in Israel as a member of the United States women’s basketball team.

Rothman, who led Merrimack in scoring as a sophomore, earned a spot in the Games by competing against the best Jewish female basketball players in the country in a two-day tryout.

The Maccabiah Games are held every four years in Israel and have also been referred to as the “Jewish Olympics,” hosting over 8,000 athletes from more than 60 countries. The games are the third-largest sporting event in the world.

Girls hoop openings

This is a banner summer for anyone looking to be a head basketball coach. First there was the opening an Andover High and now North Andover is looking for a replacement for Sue Breen. Moreover, both Beverly and Ipswich are looking for head coaches. Ipswich has a talented team returning and should be one of the favorites in the Cape Ann League.

Locals to UMass Lowell

The UMass Lowell woman’s cross country program struck it rich with talented Merrimack Valley Conference recruits for next year.

Joining Haverhill’s Jackie Solimine, who was the Eagle-Tribune MVp last fall, will be Lowell High standout Erin Donovan and Jennifer Pisarik of Chelmsford. Among the boys recruits are Lowell High standouts Mike Kalenoski and Nick McArdle as well as former Wilmington standout Steve Halas.
