Carifio’s catch

Avid fisherman Brian Carifio, the former Conservation Officer of Haverhill, recently landed a huge 22-inch, largemouth bass in his home town of West Newbury. It weighed 6 pounds and 10 ounces, which is still not as big as his largest catch, which was caught at Millvale Reservoir more than a decade ago.

Prolific Cervizzi

Brooks School hasn’t won as many games as it would like but at least the 2-4 Green and White are more productive on offense. And North Reading’s Chris Cervizzi is a big reason why.

Cervizzi is No. 2 in scoring in the Independent School League with 80 points.

Costly changes

Because of the West Nile virus threat, several school districts had to switch games from the evening to the afternoon. This was not only inconvenient for fans, but expensive for school districts.

Haverhill athletic director Tom O’Brien, who had to switch 11 events that included two football games, estimates that it cost the athletic department at least $10,000.

43 years is enough

Keene State celebrated the highly-accomplished 43-year coaching career of men’s soccer coach Dr. Ron Butcher Saturday when he coached his final home regular season game.

Butcher, who has posted a 585-246-71 record at Keene State, announced last week that he will retire following the 2013 season. The dean of men’s soccer coaches in New England, he has led the Owls to 31 post-season tournament appearances.

PR for Peterson

John Peterson, a teacher at the Page School in West Newbury, had a personal-best marathon time at the Marine Corps Marathon over the weekend, running a 3:27, easily beating his goal of 3:35.

It was Peterson’s fifth marathon and the fourth run with his sister, Elizabeth Dollas from Amesbury. She also had a PR time, an impressive 3:07.

Huskies are champs

The Bradford Huskies boys 11-12 year-old team captured the Mayor’s Cup Cross Country championship over the weekend at Franklin Park. Connor Alessi led the way, finishing third on the 1.1-mile course in 6:24, followed by Ryan Basile, Cormac Crippen, Kyle Nikas and Liam Nikas. They finished 6-7-9-10.
