Baseball Earns Two Victories
by Chris White
The Salem baseball team took a pair of victories last week to improve its overall record to 4-2. The Blue Devils first defeated Keene on the road by the score of 10-5 on Friday, April 23, and then shut out Bishop Guertin, 5-0, in a home contest on Monday, April 26. The score was tied 1-1 after two innings
at Keene, but the Devils took a 3-1 lead in the top of the third and held on from there. Salem tacked on some insurance runs later in the game, scoring seven in the fifth and sixth innings combined to take a five-run victory. Sophomore pitcher Dan Peters made his
varsity debut and threw a complete game five-hitter. Meanwhile, Darren Brown had three hits for the Salem offense, including a homer and three RBIs. Joe Morin also belted a double and a home run for four RBIs. Nick Poore took the mound against Bishop Guertin and went the distance to pitch a two-hit shut out. The winning pitcher also accumulated 11 strikeouts and walked only one batter. Catcher Josh Treff provided a solo home
run, while first baseman Sam Fazioli knocked a three-run homer out of the yard. Matt Gioia had a multi-hit game with two hits, and Jordan Estevez stole two bases and scored two runs. Morin added an RBI double as well.
After playing Manchester Memorial on the road this past Wednesday, Salem will host Manchester Central at Michele Park on Friday, April 30, at noon.

Blue Devils Race the Broncos
by Chris White
Salem’s track and field teams traveled to Hudson on Tuesday, April 20, for a dual meet with the Alvirne Broncos. The Salem girls barely edged the Broncos, 71-70, while the boys’ team fell by the score of 82-62. In a meet that came down to the wire, Melissa Higgins earned
two wins on the track for the Blue Devils. She placed first in the 300 hurdles with a time of 48.5 seconds, and then won the 200 meters in a time of 27.2 seconds. Also on the track, Fatima Adigun took a victory in the 100 hurdles, while Samantha Hutchins did the same in the 1600 meters. Adigun achieved a time of 16.8 seconds, while Hutchins came through at 5:37 after four laps. The 4x100 relay team was also victorious and posted a time of 53.1 seconds. Additionally, Salem received some quality wins in the field
from Taylor Buatti, Steph Chapman, Grace Cardarelli, and Amy Desrosiers. Buatti pole-vaulted eight feet, Chapman tossed the
shot put for 30 feet, seven-and-one-quarter inches, Cardarelli threw the javelin for 96 feet, eight-and-one-half inches, and Desrosiers hurled the discus for 112 feet, seven inches. With the win, the team’s record now stands at 2-0. In the boys’ competition, Salem was led by three double winners: Max Jacques, Jerickson Fedrick, and Gabe Frias.

The junior bounded 20 feet, 10-and- three-quarters inches in the long jump, and triple-jumped to a mark of 38 feet, one-and-a-half inches. On the track, Fedrick blazed to a time of 11.4 seconds for first in the 100 meters, and came in first in the 200 with a 23.1-second sprint. Meanwhile, Frias won both hurdles as he checked in at 17.2 seconds in the 110 hurdles and 43.4 seconds in the 300 hurdles. Salem’s 4x100 relay team also took first in a time of 45.1 seconds. After dropping their first dual meet of the season to Alvirne, the Blue Devils now own a 1-1 record.

Then on Monday, April 26, the Devils traveled to Keene and topped the Blackbirds, 6-1.

Becker, the team’s number one, won by the score of 8-1, while his teammate Bacho took an 8-2 victory in the number-three match. Scali also managed to win 8-6, and Denning shut out his opponent 8-0. From there, the Blue Devils swept the doubles competition. Becker and Brad Morriseau teamed up to win their match 8-3,
Bacho and Ryan Breton pulled out a 9-7 win in the second doubles match, and the duo of Scali and Blaise Arden defeated their foes by the score of 8-5.

Becker and Denning won the only doubles match of the day, 8-1, while both also shut out their adversaries in their respective singles matches. Scali, Arden, and Ryan Greenleaf prevailed victorious in the singles competition as well. After facing Manchester Memorial on the road this past

Grey skies and soggy fields on Sunday, April 18, did not stop more than 100 three- and four-year-old children from taking the fields in the Salem Youth Soccer Association (SYSA) inaugural Tot Soccer season. The day was a huge success, as Salem High Varsity Soccer Coach Tony Karibian and his team of coaches, as well as
the many volunteer parent coaches led skill sessions. Tot Soccer will be held every Sunday and continue through mid-June. SYSA welcomes all prospective players for the fall season to come and stop by and check out the excitement. A special note of thanks to Tot Soccer Coordinator Dave Plante for all his hard work for coordinating such a successful start to this new program.
