Sports in a Minute: Tommy T gets another state title game

Tommy T back in state finals

Longtime Methuen umpire Tommy Torrisi, a local lawyer, has been tabbed to work the Massachusetts State Little League finals for the second consecutive year.

This year’s state finals are in Beverly at Harry Ball Field.

This could open the door for Torrisi to work the New England Regionals in Bristol, Conn. and then, hopefully, eventually the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.

Congrats to Tommy Torrisi.

Jaclyn making her mark

Andover native Jaclyn Sweeney, who starred at Oklahoma St. and Arizona State, has quietly done some great work as a rookie on the LPGA Tour.

While she ranks 149th in purse ($15,656), she has hovered around the top of the leader board on a few occasions, only to fall out of contention, etc.

In the second event in Australia, Sweeney opened with a 5-under 67 and was in the top 10 after Day 2, after a 72. But a 76 and 80 dropped way down.

When the tour returned back to the states, she was again on the leaderboard in Phoenix with a 68. But a 78 knocked her out of the tournament.

Sweeney shot a 2-over-74 yesterday, and appears to be on her way to a decent run among the best women golfers in the world.

Foy, Aquino still playing

According to Eagle-Tribune college hockey writer Mike McMahon, former Merrimack College forwards Matt Foy and Anthony Aquino have inked professional contracts for the 2014-15 season.

Foy will remain with Eisbären Berlin in Germany for a third straight season. In 31 games this past season, Foy totaled 17 points (5 goals, 12 assists) and has 42 points (16 goals, 26 assists) in 71 total DEL games.

Aquino re-signed with Odense, where he finished the 2013-14 season after starting the year in Poland. Josh Myers will also play in Germany next season for EHC Neuwied.

Other Warriors restricted FAs
