COMEAU TO MINUTEMEN

Two-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star Courtney Comeau of Andover has committed to run track at UMass Amherst starting next fall.

Comeau, a hurdler, was an Eagle-Tribune All-Star the spring of her sophomore year and last winter. She missed last spring due to a back injury.

Comeau already had a family connection to the UMass track program. Her cousin, former Eagle-Tribune boys track MVP Pat Farnham, is a sprinter for the Minutemen.

FRESHMAN FANTASTIC

After Pentucket’s upset victory over archrival Triton on Saturday, I noted the contributions of freshman linebacker Patrick Freiermuth, who made a team-high 12 tackles and intercepted a pass.

But, upon reviewing the highlights (which can be viewed at eagletribune.com/sports), I realized I had I forgotten to mention that he made another one of the biggest plays of the day.

When the Vikings attempted an on-sides kick with moments left, it was Freiermuth who made the recovery.

PAST IS GONE

The next time you say the New England Patriots have the advantage over a team because they “know what it takes to be a champion,” consider this:

With Vince Wilfork done for the season, Tom Brady is the only player on the roster from the championship years.

That’s right, Brady is now the lone link to the golden era of Tedy Bruschi, Troy Brown and Mike Vrabel. No one else on the roster has a Patriots Super Bowl ring.

Doesn’t feel that long ago, but it is.

KOBELSKI DONE

It’s been a bad week-plus for the St. John’s Prep football team.

Most every football fan knows that the Prep lost Maryland-bound superstar running back Johnny Thomas for the season with a torn ACL suffered against Everett. But that isn’t the team’s only major injury in recent weeks.
