Emily Pettigrew

Newburyport, Sophomore

Center

Emily Pettigrew had a breakout season for the Clippers this past year, emerging as one of the league's most dominant frontcourt players as a sophomore. Pettigrew averaged a team-high 12.2 points per game to go along with 6.6 rebounds per game and 44 blocks, earning CAL All-League honors at the end of the season. Pettigrew came up huge in the team's first round tournament matchup with Marblehead, recording 20 points and 9 rebounds, and she also scored 21 points in an earlier game against Saugus.

Mary Pettigrew

Newburyport, Senior

Forward

One of Newburyport's most versatile players, Mary Pettigrew did almost everything for the Clippers this past year. The CAL All-Star and team co-MVP played nearly every position, guarded everyone from the opposing team's point guard to center and was relied upon to help orchestrate many of the team's plays. Pettigrew averaged 9.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, though she came on hot towards the end of the season and averaged closer to 14 points per game in the second half. Her best game of the season came in the team's first round tournament matchup against Marblehead, when she scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the team's 54-51 double-overtime win. After graduating, Mary plans to study nursing at UMass Amherst.

Erin Savage

Triton, Freshman

Point Guard

After making the varsity squad as a freshman, Erin Savage quickly emerged as one of the best players on the team. Savage averaged over 7 points per game and also recorded 75 assists and steals on the season. Savage's best game came on Feb. 6 against Pentucket, when she recorded 10 points, 3 assists and 3 steals. A CAL All-Star, Savage was described by coach Charlie Noonan as a consistent player who could always be counted on to contribute every night. Savage said the highlight of her season was getting to bond with the team's upperclassmen, and she said she looks up to her sister Jess, who is a standout distance runner on the track team.
