Sports in a minute

(Continued)

I think once the Olympic Committee decided to narrow the men’s aerials team to one athlete, the committee should have rewarded Ferguson for being the top American athlete in the sport for the last three years and during the qualifying. Nothing against Bohonnon, but he was better on one day.

It seems I’m not the only who feels Ferguson was snubbed. U.S. National Team aerials teammate Jonathon Lillis, who also had a case for making the team, gave the following quote to the Democrat and Chronicle: “It’s a bad day for us veterans. They didn’t even send our best skier, Dylan Ferguson.”

Pettingell completes Newburyport Baseball Book

Former Newburyport High baseball coach Bill Pettingell recently completed Volume II of the Newburyport Baseball Book, which is over 250 pages long. The book includes career stats for all Newburyport players from 1985 to 2011, and in some cases 2013. It also has coaching updates and team statistics. Those interested in Volume I or II should contact Pettingell at wbpettingell@comcast.net. He plans to have the books hard-bound this week.

Carleo in lead

In the first listing of leaders among New England indoor track and field athletes, Newburyport junior Nick Carleo is tied for first in the mile with a 4:15. In addition, St. John’s Prep’s Evan Dombrowski leads all shot putters with a heave of 57-6 3/4.

‘Prep’ race Sunday

One of the toughest and yet most popular road races will be coming up Sunday in Derry, N.H., with the Boston Prep 16-Miler. The course features some grueling hills that are steeper than any on the actual Boston Marathon course.
