Paitchel headed to St. Anselm

Pelham's Paitchel displays skills, nets scholarship to St. Anselm

If Gillespie can attract a pitcher of comparable talent, the future could be bright for the Knights.

“Recruiting won’t be easy, but I think we’ll do fine,” said Gillespie. “When girls realize the opportunity they have here, academically and financially, I think we’ll get the talent.

“We’d like to get it to the level of the (NECC) baseball program.”

Fabulous Feeney

Pentucket’s Tyler Feeney had a terrific sophomore season a year ago, batting .439, and she hasn’t missed a beat this year. If anything, she’s stepped it up a notch. Through last week, the Sachems’ center fielder was hitting an out-of-this-world .710 with 17 hits in 24 at-bats while scoring 11 runs and driving in 13 runs.

This year’s sophomore sensation for the Sachems is catcher Maddie Binding, who wasn’t even on the varsity last year. She enters the week hitting .583 with 14 hits in 24 at-bats.

Wide open in NH

It’s still early, but the Division 1 race in New Hampshire looks as wide open as expected. Headed into this week, defending champion Timberlane is in first with a 6-0 record while always strong Salem is right behind at 5-0. Manchester Central, at 5-1, is looking dangerous with pitcher Sarah LaVallee, and BG has the same record.

Salem has a big game Friday at Pinkerton (3-2).

Potent Paitchel

Pelham senior Hannah Paitchel, is in her fourth year as Pelham’s starting shortstop. She has batted over .400 every year and is a three-time team MVP.

Freshman: .444, scored 18 runs

Sophomore: .471, scored 14 runs, first team Division 2 all-state

Junior: .431, scored 21 runs, second team Division 3 all-state
