The Triton softball team pounded Lynnfield by a score of 11-0 on on Tuesday. Emily Karvielis and Bridget Sheehan had three hits and a home run each, Grace McGonagle added three hits of her own, and Katherine Quigley pitched a complete game shutout as Triton improved to 4-0 on the season.
McCoy powers Sachems
Megan McCoy blasted a two-run home run in the third inning and scored three runs overall as the Pentucket softball team beat Newburyport 12-6 for its first win of the season. Sophomore pitcher Charlotte Latham allowed only five hits and four earned runs in the complete game effort, and Gina D’Agostino had two hits and two RBI in the win. Newburyport was led by Meghan Winn and Cali Caponigro, who each had two hits for the Clippers.
Georgetown pitcher Jacob Adamsky was dominant in Tuesday’s win over Rockport, pitching a complete-game, one-hit shutout to beat the Vikings 6-0. Adamsky also had two hits at the plate, as did catcher Tim Chianca, who also drove in two runs. Georgetown is now 2-1 on the season.
Cane goes deep
Pentucket’s Jordan Cane hit a solo home run in the third inning, and Trevor Blanchard launched a two-run double in the first, but that’s all the offense the Sachems were able to muster in Tuesday’s 14-3 loss to Bishop Fenwick. It was Pentucket’s first loss of the season as the Sachems dropped to 2-1 overall.
The Newburyport girls tennis team swept Triton on Tuesday, cruising to a decisive 5-0 victory. Ann deKanter won at first singles 6-2, 6-0, Sophie Page took second singles 6-2, 6-2, River Sava won at third singles 6-3, 6-0, Anna Hickman and Molly Page won at first doubles 6-4, 6-2, and Li McClure and Elle Doucette swept their second doubles match 6-0, 6-0. Newburyport is now 3-1 on the year while Triton falls to 2-2.
Patriots Hall of Fame
The New England Patriots announced Tuesday that defensive end Richard Seymour, safety Rodney Harrison and linebacker Mike Vrabel are this year’s finalists for the Patriots Hall of Fame. All three players were key parts of the early 2000s Patriots dynasty, with Seymour and Vrabel each earning three Super Bowl rings while Harrison won two. Fans will now select this year’s inductee, who will enter the hall alongside offensive tackle Leon Gray, who was chosen earlier this month by the senior selection committee. Voting will be open through May 3.
Pats sign Jones, Thomas
The Patriots also made a series of roster moves on Tuesday, re-signing restricted free agent cornerback Jonathan Jones while signing former Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. Jones has played the last three seasons in New England, and this past fall he appeared in all 16 regular season games primarily out of the nickel package.
Thomas, meanwhile, is a veteran of nine NFL seasons who has spent most of that time with the Broncos before linking up with the Houston Texans briefly last fall. Thomas, 31, was at one point considered one of the top deep threats in the NFL, but he is now coming off a torn achilles and isn’t guaranteed to be ready for the coming season.
