Lights out Night Owls
The Kingston Night Owls have certainly gotten strong pitching in the North Shore League this summer. Prior to the All-Star Game, in which all three participated, Central Catholic grad Paul Trabucco of St. Anselm College hadn’t given up a run in 11 innings, Londonderry’s Steve Considine of Stonehill College had an ERA of 1.91 in 18 innings and former Timberlane standout and Colby Sawyer hurler P.J. Singster’s ERA was 0.44 in 16 innings.
In the All-Star game last week, all three Night Owls pitched scoreless innings as the North Shore League beat the Central Mass. All-Stars 5-0.
Pedro to Phillips Exeter
Methuen’s A.J. Pedro, the son of Olympic medalist Jimmy Pedro, will be attending Phillips Exeter in the fall. Pedro had been considering Brooks and St. John’s Prep, but an opportunity at Phillips Exeter was too great to pass up.
Pedro works out at Smitty’s Barn in Danville and head coach Matt Smith says that he’s the best eighth grade wrestler he’s ever had.
No Channel swim yet
If she is ever to make the monumental swim across the English Channel, it will have to be another year for Haverhill’s Paige Crimmin, who has been training in New Zealand with that goal in mind. Crimmin had hoped to try the Channel swim in the last two weeks but, when she got to the departure site, the water was extremely cold and, because she is just getting over a bout of the flu, the attempt seemed inadvisable.
Dunkerley paces cyclists
William Dunkerley of Newton, N.H., was the top cyclist Saturday in the Newton’s Revenge bike race up Mount Washington.
