A national title for Derry?

national champ?

Derry native Mark Krikorian has guided the Florida State women’s soccer team to a No. 3 national ranking. Until recently, the Seminoles were No. 1. Krikorian, who starred at Pinkerton and St. Anselm’s (Class of ‘83), has guided the Noles to a top-10 finish in each of his seven years in Tallahassee.

FSU’s first loss was Oct. 18 at Boston College, obviously spoiling Krikorian’s homecoming. FSU got revenge with a 4-0 win over the Eagles Sunday in the ACC tourney quarterfinals.

Mysterious resignation

Legendary Winnacunnet girls basketball coach Ed Beattie, who won seven N.H. state titles and 519 games in 31 years, has stepped down and gave the Union Leader a curious explanation.

“I’m not at liberty to talk about it now. I’m going to leave it as a closed subject,” he said.

Field goal phenom

Not too many if any Mass. kickers have done what Milton Academy sophomore Justin Yoon did in a 27-21 win over Lawrence Academy. He booted four long field goals: 37, 46, 42 and 53 yards. The Nashville native’s brother, Eric, was a hockey goalie at Phillips Academy.

alma mater calls

After a brief stint at Endicott, Steve Boudreau of North Andover accepted an assistant basketball coaching position at Keene State, where he was a captain the last three seasons.

“Steve is a great student of the game and an up- and-comer in our business,” said Keene coach Rob Colbert.

Barbash at williams

Add to the All-Name team Williams College runner Shayna Barbash. ... Ex-Pinkerton and Keene State volleyball star Braelan O’Toole is a first-year assistant at Bates.

Ex-Hillie in cooperstown

Chaz Scoggins from the Lowell Sun had an interesting note in a recent column: He wrote that after Baseball Hall of Famer Billy Hamilton retired from the majors in 1901, he was player-manager for the Haverhill Hillies of the New England League. He also played for the Haverhill Hustlers.
