Coming off a serious knee injury, Colby Ingraham returned to the Georgetown lineup this spring looking as good as ever. The Georgetown shortstop earned his second straight All-League selection, and as a team captain he helped lead the Royals back to the Division IV North Finals. In Georgetown’s 5-4 upset of previously unbeaten Masconomet, Ingraham was intentionally walked to load the bases, which set up the walk-off sacrifice fly in the following at bat. Outside of baseball, Ingraham is also a standout student in the classroom. He has a GPA of 4.0, and this coming fall he will attend Northern Essex Community College.
Having earned his second straight All-League selection, the Georgetown right fielder and team captain had another big season, helping lead the Royals back to the Division IV North Finals. Noelk said the highlight of the season was hitting a double off a bunt, and he also came up big in Georgetown’s tournament win over Boston International, going 2-4 with two runs to help lead the Royals to the semifinals victory. Noelk is also a standout performer in both basketball and soccer, and this coming year he will attend Rivier College to continue his soccer career.
A Cape Ann League All-Star, James Nutter had one of the most dominant stretches a pitcher could ever have late in the season when he threw an eight-inning no-hitter against Hamilton-Wenham on May 10 and then came within one out of pitching another one against Pentucket in the Spofford Tournament two weeks later. Overall, Nutter was 5-3 on the season with an ERA of 1.65 and 27 strikeouts in 38.1 innings of work. Though Newburyport did not qualify for the postseason in baseball this season, Nutter will still leave Newburyport having been apart of seven state championship teams between cross-country and indoor track. He will attend Georgetown University in the fall.
