Sports in a Minute: Fazio vs. Farnhams in NCAAs

Fazio vs. Farnhams

Three 2012 Eagle-Tribune All-Stars from Andover High will be on the field when UConn and UMass square off tonight at Penn State in the first round of the NCAA lacrosse tourney.

Reigning Eagle-Tribune MVP Ally Fazio (7 goals, 2 assists) has started eight games in the midfield for the 13-4 Huskies. Twin midfielders Kate (16 appearances, 3 starts, 19 ground balls) and Anne Farnham (12 appearances) have helped the Minutemen to a 17-2 record.

Jimmy Zenevitch of Methuen and Central Catholic will be a captain next winter for the Assumption basketball team. The 6-8 sophomore center averaged 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds in 10.3 minutes a game this year for the 21-8 Greyhounds.

Joey Lee, an assistant coach at Pinkerton for the last six years, was named the Astros’ new head hockey coach. He replaces Casey Kesslring, who went 146-73-9 with two Division 1 state titles in 10 seasons. He is now head coach at New Hampton.

Lee, a history teacher and golf coach at Pinkerton, is a Manchester native who played three years at Plymouth State (Class of 2006).

By and large, our local coaches do an excellent job of it. Salem girls lacrosse players, unfortunately, frequently have received the short end of the stick over the years.

Deafening noise

N.Y. Post columnist Mike Vaccaro, a sportswriter for the last 24 years, had this to say about the Celtics’ 20-0 run against the Knicks last week: “I swear, I have never heard sports sound as loud as it did here in TD Garden. Just amazing.”
