Lady Astro Tracksters Aim to Improve on Class L Finish

——◆—–––

Despite some strong

individual performances and steady improvement by its athletes during the 2009 sea- son, the Pinkerton Academy girls’ track team ended up a somewhat disappointing ninth at the Class L meet at the end of the campaign. But Lady Astros’ coach

Ed Vaitones has a solid group of athletes in his fold for the 2010 season, and he knows what it’ll take for his girls to climb up some spots at the class meet.

“The key to this season is

having more athletes who reach Class L qualifying and can compete for points,” said Vaitones.

At the center of the

team’s hopes for the new season is a strong group of seniors that is led by distance standout Cayla Pellegrini, who is coming off a fine indoor campaign. Others in that key bunch

include middle distance standout Rachel Stilling, jumper/hurdler/sprinter Caroline Sennott, sprinters Jordan Doherty, Alexis Maylor, and Jamie Lang-

evin, and standout pole vaulter Sam Graziani. Among the team’s talent- ed juniors are hurdler Danielle Cole and field event stalwart Katy Ebner, and there’s a corps of skilled sophomores with all kinds of promise as well. That bunch includes 400-meter standout Renee Hensiek, distance runners Sammy Goldsmith and Madison Weston, and the versatile Abbey Smith and Bethany Labossier. Other sources of promise - and potential points - are sophomores Colleen Dooley (triple jump, 300 hurdles)

and Kailee Kwiecien (200, 400), and freshmen Jordan Toney and Ashley Hilliard, both of whom could help in the jumps, sprints, and throws.

Coach Vaitones antici- pates more tough competi- tion this spring from old standbys like the Bishop Guertin Lady Cardinals from Nashua and the Manchester Central Little Green. But the Pinkerton coach hopes that his young ladies can give Guertin and the Green battles each time they meet them.

The Pinkerton girls’ outdoor track and field squad will put its solid mix of veterans and youngsters to the test in tough Class L competition this spring.

Rebel Wrestlers Finish Up With an Excellent Showing

There was an estimated field of some 1,400 wrestlers

at the Marshwood Invitational Wrestling Tournament at the Portland Civic Center in Portland, Maine on Saturday, April 3. But a modestly-sized

bunch of Derry Wrestling Rebels still managed to make its presence felt in that huge crowd.

The Auger boys came up

big for the Pinkerton Academy boys’ lacrosse squad in its 16-0, season- opening hammering of the Nashua High School South Purple Panthers at Stellos Stadium this past Monday. Returning first team all- stater and junior attack Tom Auger netted six goals and assisted on one other, junior attack Jeff Auger contributed

three goals and two assists, and second team all state selection and senior midfield- er Mike Auger added a pair of goals as Pinkerton rolled to its decisive victory.

The victors also received

two goals from Anthony Saitta and single markers from Connor McCarthy,Kyle Hanaway, and Nick Herzog. First team all-stater and senior middie Jeff Guilherme contributed three assists to the PA cause, while Mc- Carthy dished out two helpers

and Mike McStravock, Ryan Coombs, and Shawn Steven- son all claimed one. Coach Brian O’Reilly’s

Astros drove out to a 3-0 lead in the first period, and by halftime their advantage sat at 8-0.

They potted another five

goals in the third quarter to make it a 13-0 match. Pinkerton goalies Brian Elliott and Pearce Connal combined for nine saves in bagging the shutout.

grapplers competed in what was their final tournament of the 2009-10 season, with no fewer than 11 of them putting forth placing performances. And seven of those young wrestlers were finalists in their respective weight class- es.

Tim Beimel wasn’t scored upon at all in the tourney as he drove his way to a gold medal in his division, and his team- mate Shiloh Vanhyll also

managed to grab the gold. Carson Milanovic, Drew

Chase, Deene Hill, Joey Lydick, and Keaton Peterson all collected silver medal- lions, and Brenden Sullivan managed to claim a bronze medal.

Shayne McCann, Dylan

Barreiro, and Seamus Dolan all ended up a very re- spectable fourth in their respective weight classes, and Eric Daigle, Kyle Milanovic,

and Kyle Peterson also repre- sented themselves and the Rebels well.

The Rebels then went on

to celebrate their superb 2009-10 campaign - which began way back in November - with a pot luck supper and awards night on Thursday, April 8, with each wrestler receiving a gold medal and a yearbook containing the results of the wildly success- ful campaign.
