Final score

Clutch X 2

Sophomore Tim Galloway-Burke exploded for 15 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth quarter, breaking open a tight contest and sending Methuen to a 81-71 victory over Dracut. Cooper Hammel was 10 for 10 from the free throw line as part of a 21-point night for the Rangers.

Fast freshmen

Freshmen Josh Driscoll, Tim Carbone, Matt Bonner and Matt Amedeo won the 200 freestyle relay in 1:44.07, a new Haverhill freshmen record in the Hillies’ 87-58 victory over Melrose.

The four also took second in the 200 medley relay, finishing in 1:56.83, which broke a Haverhill record that had been set in 1977.

Sam Clough won the diving (195.10), which qualified him for states.

Schiebel sets Windham records

Kelsey Schiebel set the Windham girls basketball program record for points in a game (30) and 3-pointers (8) to lift the Jaguars 49-42 over Oyster River.

Career high for Petrow

Amanda Petrow scored a career-best 30 points and grabbed 18 rebounds as Methuen surged 56-41 over Dracut. Abby Galloway-Burke returned from foul trouble and scored eight third-quarter points to help break open a tie game. Rosie Rodriguez and Lexi Hardy turned in great defensive efforts for the Rangers.

New week, new record

After setting a new school record in the 40-yard hurdles last week, John Braga lowered the time again as he ran a 5.70 in North Reading’s meet against Masconomet.

First time’s a charm

Running her first 2-mile of the indoor season, Jenna Crawford not only won but qualified for states but North Reading track lost 44-42 to Masconomet.

Eight straight for Hornets

North Reading basketball is off to an 8-0 start for the “first time in forever,” said head coach Joe Casey after defeating Manchester Essex, 65-51. Chris Capozzoli led all scorers with 19 points and added six rebounds for the Hornets while John Mastascusa had eight points and eight boards.
