Banner year for Amesbury

Athletics program headed in right direction

(Continued)

Other Amesbury programs that have historically struggled to compete in the Cape Ann League — like tennis and track and field — also had strong seasons. The Amesbury girls tennis team set program records for wins and set victories. The girls track team had a strong showing in the championship meets, leading coach Ernie Bissaillon to be named CAL Coach of the Year.

“I didn’t know many of the coaches before I got here,” Gearin said. “The people in place now are working hard. When they ask for stuff, we get it to them. We try to facilitate them to be the best in their jobs. We ask them to give 100 percent when they’re coaching. When the coaches do right by the kids, and the kids see that, there’s mutual respect and admiration. That’s what we’ve had here lately.”
