Doing it all
Haverhill's Tom Palleschi allowed just one hit and struck out nine in five shutout innings, and was 3 for 3 at the plate with two RBIs as Phillips blasted Worcester Academy, 13-0.
Dillon Ryan allowed just three hits and struck out seven in a complete-game effort as Whittier topped North Shore 2-1. Nathan Frongillo turned in a stellar effort at second to help his pitcher.
Kim Pham won the pole vault (6-8), high jump (4-6) and 400 (69.5) as Lawrence defeated Notre Dame 75-63 for its first girls track victory of the season. Melanie Lilly added wins in the triple jump and 200 for the Lancers, which also fell to Billerica in the tri-meet.
Behind five goals for Alex Catalano, Pelham downed Salem 11-7. According to coach Jen Resmini, this is believed to be the first time the Division 2 Pythons have ever beaten Division 1 Salem, a regular opponent.
Nick of time
With just under two minutes left in the game, Andrew Ouellette took a pass and buried his fifth goal of the contest, the game-winner as Central Catholic edged Lowell 10-9. Ouellette added a pair of assists.
Katey Scionti, Erin Masucci, Taylor O'Neil and Claire Foggo anchored a superb effort on the back for Central Catholic in a 10-4 girls lax win over Lowell.
Hornets bring it home
Knotted at 70-70 headed into the final event, North Reading stood pretty strong.
"We had our best relay team of the year ready to go," said coach Sotirios Pintzopoulos of the Hornets 4x400. A strong opening leg by Nicole Cecchini put the Hornets in contention. Triple jump winner Brittany Angiolillo took the baton on the second leg and turned a deficit into a lead — one which Emily Shaw and Tori Pearce — extended for the win, a fine 4:33.6 clocking and the meet victory over Newburyport. Angiolillo, who took second in the long jump, and Shaw, took the triple and high jumps, respectively. Kristy Conway doubled up, winning the pole vault and 200 meters.
Barrows wheels to win
Freshman Ryan Barrows reversed any early loss to the same foe from Malden with a convincing, 6-4, 6-2 win at third singles, helping North Reading complete the 5-0 boys tennis whitewash.
History made by Lancers
The Lawrence boys track team finished its first undefeated season ever (5-0-1), and won the MVC championship for the first time since 1982. The Lancers capped off the season with a 90-55 beating of Billerica.
