Rowe’s NE-10 honor

Newburyport High alumna Molly Rowe, a sophomore defenseman for the Bentley University field hockey team, made the Northeast-10 Conference Honor Roll for the week ending September 23. During a week in which Bentley went 2-1 with two shutouts, Rowe led the defense at center back by making several key circle clears. She played every minute of each game and also scored a goal, the first of her career, against Assumption Thursday night.

Amesbury’s Turner Motorsport is preparing for the final race of the 2013 Grand-Am season at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Conn., this Saturday. The race potentially marks the last time Turner Motorsport will race the iconic BMW M3 at the BMW sponsored track, as Lime Rock is not on the 2014 United Sports Car Series schedule. To celebrate 20 years of racing and Turner Motorsport’s 280th professional race start at Lime Rock Park, the No. 97 GS class M3 running in Saturday morning’s two-and-a-half hour Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race will feature a retro livery recreated from the Speed World Challenge E46 325i touring car which ran at Lime Rock in 2003. Will Turner and Don Salama will be behind the wheel together for the first time since 2009 at Laguna Seca where they made history as the first E90 chassis BMW to win in Grand-Am racing in the No. 95 328i ST class BMW.
