Cormier gives it his best shot

Methuen muscle

Sophomore Dan Cormier of Methuen broke the 3-year-old Stonehill shot put record with a season-opening 46-11 1/2 heave to place second at the Boston Indoor Invitational. He also grabbed a fifth in the weight throw (46-3 3/4).

proud coach

Lawrence football coach Mike Yameen proudly points out that three of his ex-players were on Division 3 NCAA playoff teams. They were sophomore defensive back Ony Ramos (30 tackles, 3 interceptions at Framingham State), junior defensive end Darius Timmons (reserve at Framingham) and junior cornerback Dimar Torres (12 tackles at Bridgewater State).

Raider ramblings

Central linebacker Markus Edmunds, one of three sophomores named first-team All-MVC, has the good genes. His father, Mark, was the former bruising Merrimack basketball star from Londonderry.

And if you see Central gridder Tommy Jenoski tomorrow, wish him a happy 18th birthday.

soccer sensation

In cased you missed it, Londonderry senior soccer All-American Lydia Simmons, who plans on taking a prep year, has committed to Vanderbilt.

Tweet from mia

The North Andover Fire U12 soccer team received a Tweet from none other than soccer legend Mia Hamm (@MiaHamm).

She Tweeted: “Good luck to the North Andover Fire: Kate (Cheevers), Olivia (Adamic), Ava (Sauls), Riley (Cinquegrano), Madison (Landry), Liz (Steinberg), Izzy (Ceraso), Emma (Liporto), Kylie (Palumbo), Molly (Connolly), Peyton (Sportelli) and Christina (Farmer). Listen to your coach.”

Apparently a former Tar Heel lives on the North Shore and made the request to Hamm, the wife of ex-Red Sox star Nomar Garciaparra.

Coach delahoz

Ex-Central Catholic point guard Junior DeLaHoz is the new head coach at the Hillside School, a boys boarding school for grades 5-9 in Marlboro.

national champions

A couple of changes to our recent list of local national champions. The Trinity lacrosse champ should have been Liz Bruno not Amanda Bruno. And sharp eyed reader Tom Hibino of Andover pointed out that Andover’s Rob Oppenheim won the 2002 Division 2 team golf title at Rollins. All Oppenheim did was sink an 18-foot birdie putt on the last hole to clinch the win!
