Under the Lights: Central's Williams to St. A's

ST. A’s-BOUND

Central Catholic basketball-volleyball star Amanda Williams has committed to play volleyball at St. Anselm’s, where she will join freshman Micaela Donatio from North Andover High. It couldn’t have hurt that St. A’s coach Dan Young of Salem is close friends with Central coach Gannon Paris. Williams has been brilliant this winter and very well could be a basketball All-Scholastic.

COLLEGE DECISION

Pinkerton Academy hockey/lacrosse star Bailey Walsh will be continuing his lacrosse career at St. Lawrence University. Walsh, who leads the hockey team with seven goals, is a transfer from Holderness.

GOLFING SCHOLAR

CSNNE sportscaster Kevin Walsh made Academic All-Big 10 as a golfer at Purdue.

SINGING STAR

Pinkerton sophomore cheerleader Emily Dellisola will be singing the national anthem Tuesday when the Bruins host the Panthers.

CAKES ARE BAKING

UTL birthday wishes go out to history-making wrestling champion Danielle Coughlin of North Andover (19 today), Stony Brook basketball player Scott King of Derry (22 tomorrow), Boston Breakers director of operations Laura “Shaggy” Doran of North Andover (27 Tuesday), BC-bound ex-Pinkerton hockey great J.D. Dudek (18 Wednesday) and former Bruin Steve Heinze of North Andover (44 Thursday).

DIBELLA DOMINATION

Has anyone beat Burt as often as Daniel DiBella of Methuen? He is the master of the football picks contest.

COMPLIMENTS TO THE COOK

Ex-Patriot tight end Marv Cook has led Regina High to four straight Iowa 1A state titles and has won 56 straight games, tied for the national lead. His son, junior Drew Cook, is the star 6-4 quarterback. Drew Bledsoe fans will tell you this wasn’t the first time Marv has had success with a QB named Drew.

TOP ROOKIE

Rutgers freshman April Baker of Andover was named the East Atlantic Gymnastics League Rookie of the Week. In her college debut against UNH, Baker tied for first on the vault and took a second on the floor, scoring 9.825 in each.
