Sports in a Minute: Methuen lacrosse player knows it is good to be king

GOOD TO BE KING

A recent Eagle-Tribune story highlighted Methuen homecoming queen Lauren McAndrew. Homecoming king Matt Fillipon also is an impressive guy. Ranked 80th in a class of 430, “Flip” will study communications at Merrimack. He’s a member of the soccer, winter track and lacrosse teams as well as student council, National Honor Society and Relay for Life.

LOVE IN THE AIR

The Captains Corner photo in The Eagle-Tribune of Greater Lawrence Tech coed tennis team captains Freudy Gonzalez and Taylor Schmitz could double as a prom picture. The two Reggie standouts are dating.

TAKE 30 FOR TEAM

LSU recruit Bryce Jordan of Lake Charles Barbe High in Louisiana recently was hit for the 30th time this season. That broke the 49-year-old national single-season record.

RED SOX DAD

The aforementioned Jordan’s high school coach is Glenn Cecchini, father of highly-touted Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini. Interestingly, Glenn’s wife, Saissa, was an assistant coach for him for many years with the Barbe High team.

DOUBLE DUTY

Katherine Donnelly of Londonderry, a former all-conference soccer player at BU, still is immersed in sports. She played for the Boston Breakers professional team and now is their color commentator. She also is marketing and communications manager for the Boston Cannons pro lacrosse team. She also has ties to hockey as she’s dating Rockford IceHogs of the AHL defenseman Adam Clendening.

LONDONDERRY LOSS

Talented freshman Caleb Green, a 5-9 guard who averaged 8.3 points this winter for Londonderry, is transferring to Proctor.

GOOD SCOUT

Senior defensive back Jimmy Johnson of Andover was named the Scout Team Defensive Player of the Year at Dartmouth. The 5-11, 210-pounder was a key reserve/special teams player the last two years.

FEAR FACTOR

A New Hampshire paper had an unfortunate typo in a headline for a standout wrestler. He apparently was going to wrestle for “Scared Heart” not Sacred Heart.

GRAND ENTRANCE

Jalin Marston had the ultimate debut. In her first at-bat, the Exeter freshman hit a grand slam against Nashua North.
