Onorato named MVP

Yale sophomore Sarah Onorato, a Phillips Academy graduate from North Reading who was featured in the Eagle-Tribune earlier in the spring, was recently named the team MVP after completing one of the most successful seasons in school history.

Onorato set school records in hits (64), doubles (19), home runs (14) and batting average (.430). In addition, her 37 runs scored tied for the second most in a season all-time. She led the Ivy League in each of those categories as well as slugging percentage and on base percentage.

Chasing Castricone

Former North Andover coach Dave Castricone currently leads all wrestling coaches with all-time victories with 671, but at least one local coach is well on his way to catching him.

Following last year’s 29-2 campaign, Winchester’s Larry Tremblay of North Reading stands at 621-81-5 and he stated last week that he’d love to catch Castricone. But Tremblay believes that the eventual leader will be St. John’s Prep coach Manny Costa, who passed the 500 mark last year.

Bossi documentary

In case you haven’t heard, Tim O’Donnell is creating a documentary film highlighting the career of Lowell wrestling coach George Bossi. The film is not yet funded and a fundraiser was held April 27 looking for donations.

The 77-year-old Bossi has won more than 600 wins in a career spanning nearly a half century. Lowell had a down year last year, but he will return to coach next year and vows that the Red Raiders will be improved.

Facing alma maters

There was an interesting coaching clash in girls lacrosse at Londonderry Saturday. Head Londonderry coach Mike Boyle played lacrosse at Pinkerton while head Pinkerton coach Rob Daziel played lacrosse at Londonderry.

Denoncourt decides

Two-sport standout Harry Denoncourt of Timberlane has committed to Bridgewater State and will either wrestle or play football there and possibly both.
