the game’s pace at the start,” Windham coach Joe Mason said. “I think when we started focusing on communicating and doing the things we needed to do on the defensive end, our defense started to settle down and that became a turning point for us.”
In the second half, the score remained close until the Jaguars were leading 32-29 and then went on a 9-0 run in the final minutes of the third quarter. The run was highlighted by the Jaguars making a three-pointer in three consecutive offensive possessions. Clairee Putnam hit the first two threes and then Kelsey Schiebel knocked down the other.

Windham had possession on the opposite end of the court with six seconds left in regulation. Andrew Kalil pushed the ball up court quickly and found an open Zach Breton just inside the three-point line. Breton drained a game-winning jumper with one second left in regulation to lead Windham to a 51 to 49 victory. Breton elevated his game in the fourth quarter scoring six of his eight points. Andrew Kalil led Windham with 14 points. Joe Frake chipped in eight points. Evan Todd and Zach Hennessey added six apiece. Strong defense was played by
Pelham Swims Strong at Goffstown Meet
Ashley Labonte captured 6th with a time of 1:19.89 and Madeline Avina captured seventh with a 1:25.42. The Men’s 100 Freestyle featured Tommy Lynch
grabbing third place while knocking .52 seconds off his personal best, posting a time of 1:05.92. Jared Hannon captured fifth with a time of 1:10.70 and Kevin Ciampa captured seventh with a time of 1:25.42. All three men are promising swimmers, and many foresee more improvements as the season progresses.
One of the highlights of the meet was in the
Men’s 500 yard Freestyle (20 lengths). Brandon Hannon swam the 500 in 6:40.75. We walked through how he should swim the event and how he should focus on building up in the last 200 yards. I also thought he would come in around a 7:15.00 or somewhere in that time frame. He swam 35 seconds faster than the team expected. The second highlight of the meet was in the Women’s 100 Breaststroke. Katie parks and Valerie Tocco took first and second place in the meet with times of 1:29.57 and 1:32.33, respectively. I think this is the first time Pelham has captured a one-two finish in an event. Both Katie and Valerie really like this event.

Gymnasts Bring Snow and Stardust Home From Baltimore
submitted by Cathy Robertson-Souter Traveling to Baltimore, MD, over the weekend of December 9-11, several Windham, Pelham and Salem girls from Phantom Gymnastics in Hampstead competed alongside more than 2,000 gymnasts from throughout the East Coast. The girls faced difficult competition but managed to bring home some snow in time for the holidays - the prize for first through third in each age group and level was a customized, gymnastics snow globe! The girls also picked up a little star dust while in Maryland when the girls of Level 7 found themselves competing against a 9-year-old from West Virginia … who happens to be the daughter of 1984 Olympic gold-medalist Mary Lou Retton! Gracious and outgoing, Retton took photos with several of the girls and offered autographs to the gymnasts following her daughter’s meet. Some of the team highlights include: Level 5: Kacie Blanchet, of Salem, scored a 8.5
