Under the Lights: BIrthday and a lot more for O'Connor

Prestigious Milestone

Ex-Pentucket star Kayla O’Connor of Merrimac won’t soon forget May 14. That day the BC lacrosse recruit from Governor’s Academy scored her 200th career goal and turned 18.

Yaz in times

Last Sunday’s New York Times had a story on the front of sports on Vanderbilt star Mike Yastrzemski of Andover and his family’s baseball legacy. He, by the way, is the cousin of the aforementioned Kayla O’Connor.

homely need not apply

I’ve seen people call it sexist that almost every new TV sports hire seems to be a striking young woman. But how about all the qualified men who are bypassed?

Excellent Hogan

Congratulations to popular former Eagle-Tribune sports intern Dan Hogan of Haverhill. At graduation last weekend, the former Hillie volleyball player received the Excellence in Sports Journalism award from the New England School of Communications.

All non-american

The six-player America East tennis all-conference team includes players from Morocco, Serbia, France and Germany.

Quick study

Two months ago, Eagle-Tribune All-Star 106-pound wrestler Hector Reynoso had never picked up a racquet. Now he’s playing No. 1 doubles and has helped Lawrence to a 7-7 record ... a far cry from last year’s 1-16 record. Chen Chen and Alex Cruz have been singles mainstays.

DePaul’s free money

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel has never met a tax he didn’t like. He wants to pick up $100 million of DePaul’s proposed new $300 million basketball arena. How about if DePaul, a Catholic school, wants it, it can pay for the whole thing.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to Stonehill tennis player Thomas Alaimo of North Andover (20 today), Methuen soccer/volleyball coach Tim Gordon (26 today), ex-Andover football great Buddy Farnham (26 Wednesday), ex-NFL lineman Tom Lynch of Salem (58 Friday), BC women’s hockey coach Katie King Crowley of Salem (38 Friday), Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie of North Andover (29 Friday) and Pinkerton track coach Ian French (31 Saturday).
