ROMANO STARTS HOT
Former Methuen High football star and reigning Eagle-Tribune defensive MVP Anthony Romano is off to an impressive start for Hobart College football.
Romano intercepted a pass in his college debut, and in three games he has eight tackles, two for a loss, and a blocked kick. The linebacker also returned a kickoff 12 yards.
MAINE OFFERS PEREIRA
Star Central Catholic quarterback Ayden Pereira received a college football offer from the University of Maine last week he reported. He said it was his fifth Division 1 offer.
If the defending Eagle-Tribune offensive MVP were to choose Maine, he would have a chance to face off against the Black Bears’ arch-rival, the University of New Hampshire. UNH is quarterbacked by the man he replaced as Central Catholic QB, three-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star Bret Edwards, who is currently a sophomore.

SATLOW TO F&M
Andover senior basketball big man Logan Satlow will play his college hoops at Division 3 Franklin & Marshall College (Penn.) he announced on Twitter this week. Satlow, a 6-foot-7 center/forward, averaged 8.2 points per as a junior during last winter’s COVID-shortened season.
Congrats go out to Windham assistant head football coach Lauren Gaudette, who earned her first win as a head coach last week when the Jaguars JVs beat Nashua North.
While it’s tough to say officially, that was likely the first win for a local football team at any level with a female as head coach.
Red Sox prospect Jacob Wallace of Methuen was one of four pitchers who combined on a no-hitter for the single-A Greenville Drive against the Asheville Tourists earlier this month.
Wallace needed only nine pitches to complete a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off Greenville’s first no-no since 2018. The game was started by Jeremy Wu-Yelland.
