Sports in a Minute


Andover’s John Farrell made it an 11-2 senior season for William & Mary, pitching the Tribe into the CAA championship game with a 12-4 win over Northeastern. If W&M is done and does not earn an at-large NCAA bid, Farrell would finish the amazing campaign with a 2.80 ERA, striking out 86 and walking just 13 in 109.1 innings pitched.


Best wishes and a hearty get well go out to Andover’s Rick Harrison of the Lowell Sun, formerly of the Andover Townsman.

Harrison is one of the greats of our game, covering the local sports scene forever. Talk about a gentleman, Rick is numero uno. Although I am clearly in awe for the fact that he is the man who gave the nickname “Marvelous Marvin” to Marvin Hagler, back in his days at the Golden Gloves.

That, my friends, is special.

With all the talk recently of casino gambling, where they might be in Mass., where they won’t be in New Hampshire -- anywhere -- we lose sight of the backbone of gaming in these parts over the past decades -- live horse racing.
