Final Score

Victory for new coach

Led by freshman Nina Whitaker, and with superior depth, Salem’s girls gymnastics team took first place for new coach Kyle Redmond in a season-opening home quad-meet. Whitaker placed in three events and was second in all-around with 34.65 points. Sam Cloutier was third in the vault and Marrina Mayo was third in the bars.

Ali Otis placed in two events for Windham.

Impressive opener

Phillips Academy’s girls basketball team got out to a nine-point halftime lead on its way to a season-opening 59-54 victory over Loomis Chaffee. Maggie Brown led the scoring with 16 points, two more than Giovanna Pickering. Kasey Hartung and Pickering had eight rebounds apiece as the starting guards.

UMass Lowell shutout

Freshman goalie Connor Hellebuyck earned his second straight shutout as UMass Lowell defeated Harvard, 5-0 last night.

With the win, UMass Lowell improved to 6-7-1 entering the semester break. The River Hawks return to action Sunday, Dec. 30 when they host Bentley at 4:00. Harvard slipped to 4-4-1 overall.

Hellebuyck stopped 30 shots while the River Hawk defense was equally impressive on both ends of the ice with three goals from defensemen, 21 blocked shots and five penalty kills, extending its streak to 13 straight and 19 of the last 20. The victory follows a 2-0 win over Northeastern Saturday, in which Hellebuyck stopped 25 shots.

Locals aid Prep

St. John’s Prep’s basketball team rolled past St. Mary’s 67-43 in its season opener behind solid play from North Andover residents Drex Costello (13 points), Max Burt (13), Tyler Dooley (6), and Max Butterbrodt (6).
