Dowden honored for sportsmanship

Andover High senior Sam Dowden won the prestigious Edward “Gint” Middleton Award at the IAABO Board 130 Annual banquet recently.

The award is given to a high school player who exhibits hard work, dedication, sportsmanship and teamwork. The recipient is nominated by a committee and the winner can come from any high school north of Boston.

Board 130 vice president Rich Napolitano nominated Dowden, who made the Eagle-Tribune Super Team this winter.

“I have had the honor of officiating Sam’s games for the last four seasons,” said Napolitano. “Sam is an outstanding young man who exemplifies sportsmanship and leadership on and off the court. In the numerous games I have personally officiated during off season and regular season play, I have never known Sam to be disrespectful in any way – towards his opponent, towards officials, or towards the game of basketball.”

Also, David Berroa, of Brooks School, won our James Young Courage Award for overcoming many obstacles in recovering from a badly broken leg.

College Athletics Night in Haverhill

Haverhill High will host “College Athletics Night – Everything You Need To Know To Compete At The Next Level” on May 14 at 7 p.m. at the Haverhill High auditorium.

A panel of coaches representing all NCAA levels will be on hand. The event is free and open to the public. Items that will be reviewed include: the recruiting process, NCAA clearinghouse and eligibility, scholarships and financial aid and the college playing experience.

Jackie Bradley Jr. update

While Red Sox farmhand Jackie Bradley Jr. has been doing well in Pawtucket, averaging .302 through 11 games since joining the team on April 20, the PawSox have placed him on the 7-day disabled list (retroactive to May 4) with right biceps tendinitis.

The PawSox added outfielder Ronald Bermudez from Portland (AA) to take Bradley’s spot on the roster.
