Under the Lights: Andover's Bramanti transferring

Bramanti transfers

Ex-Andover Super Teamer Joe Bramanti has left Wright State. The freshman guard didn’t put up big numbers (1.6 points, 1.1 assists in 14.5 minutes) but his trademark defense and toughness earned him 12 starts.

Coach Billy Donlon Jr. said, “It really was out of the blue. He has to do what’s best for him. The timing really hurts us in terms of recruiting.”

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to James Madison basketball manager Joseph Kuykendall of Andover (19 today), former Salem basketball star Russ Bauters (turns 45 Tuesday), Merrimack soccer star Jackie Sullivan of North Andover (turns 21 Tuesday), and Houston Astros slugger Carlos Pena of Haverhill (turns 35 Friday).

Another Carlos pena

Speaking of Carlos. Greater Lawrence Tech has a senior reserve infielder by the name of Carlos Pena. He may not equal his major league namesake, but Reggie coach Kevin Maloney says he’s been a nice addition to the squad.

Coaching trailblazer

Jenna Galster is in a distinct minority as a female head coach of a boys high school basketball team. She was an assistant the last four years at Hopkinton (Mass.) High and recently was named head coach.

Our region boasts a woman who does a fine job as a boys assistant coach in Andover’s Carol Martini.

Javelin tradition

Loved that the first Eagle-Tribune online comment on record-setting track star Mark Zavrl was a compliment from Haverhill’s Andrew Firger. He held the old javelin record and for a college destination was pushing UConn, where Firger competed.

carpy to BU

Austin Prep sophomore Bobo Carpenter of North Reading verbally committed to BU. His father is the great Bobby Carpenter and his sister, Alex, is a BC All-American.

year of the cat

An item here mentioned three freshmen from Andover High playing in Friday’s UConn-UMass women’s lacrosse NCAA Tourney game. A big star for UConn is a senior from Andover, Cat Gross, who scored 23 goals this year. UMass won the game 14-10.
