by Marc Ayotte The Campbell track and field teams opened up their season in convincing fashion as both the boys’ and girls’ teams emerged victorious in the six school meet held at CHS. In team competition, the Lady Cougars (173) outdistanced rival Bow by 12 points in capturing first place. On the boys’ side of the ledger, the Cougars mirrored the girls’ performance by also defeating the Falcons; Campbell finished with 201.5 points, followed by Bow with 179. Under bright skies and windy conditions for the season opener, the Cougars received multiple outstanding individual outings in earning team honors. The girls featured eight athletes who captured first place in their respective events, while the boys had three first place finishers. Brianna Silick (two first place and one second)

by Marc Ayotte With the Campbell girls’ softball team and boys’ baseball teams finishing last season by collecting D-3 state championships in their respective endeavors, winning has become indigenous to the hallowed diamonds found in Cougar Country. In their attempt to repeat, the Lady Cougars are returning seven starters from last year’s championship squad with senior leadership coming from newly elected captains Julia Marra and Sam Radcliffe. Joining the two seniors to wear the black and red are juniors Erin King, Chelsea Caynon and Allie Nolan. Brittany McNulla and Emily Paquin are also returning for the Cougars as sophomores. According to Coach Laurie Gatherum, both Marra and Radcliffe “are quiet girls who lead more by example than with their voices.” Gatherum, in her seventh year at the helm added; “They’ve been two of the hardest working players we’ve ever had on the team and I’m glad to finally give them the leadership roles that they truly deserve.” Joining the returning starters for this season are a handful of promising newcomers; Shannon Lavigne (senior), Brianna Hardy (sophomore) and freshmen Carrie Fernandez, Hannah Neild and Lauren King.
Classes are offered at both beginner
and intermediate levels. We will also offer Boot Camp Express.
After breezing through the regular season and playoffs last season with a combined 19-1 record, the Cougars are focused on making it back to the title game. As Gatherum pointed out, her team will “look to Allie Nolan and Emily Paquin to fill the pitching hole left by (2011) D-3 Player of the Year Julia Nolan.” With McNulla behind the plate receiving the two Cougar hurlers, this year’s battery will once again take its toll on opposing bats. Offensively, the Cougars are poised to reveal the type of potent
attack that saw them score 205 runs a year ago. Expected to lead Campbell at the plate are the top three hitters from last season Caynon, McNulla and Erin King. In the field, Gatherum is comfortable with returning a solid core of players, needing to fill only one slot in each of the outfield and infield. In a recent scrimmage against Division I defending state champion Alvirne, the Cougars played very well, albeit in a losing effort, leaving the CHS coach saying “I’m very pleased with how we did both offensively and defensively.” A little intra-school competition is always healthy. And that just might be a side dish for Campbell sports this spring. Like their female counterparts on the base paths, the CHS boys’ baseball team will also be vying to repeat as D-3 state champions. After a storybook run last year that culminated in the Cougars’ come from behind championship game win over Somersworth, Coach Jim Gorham’s crew is strongly positioned to defend their title with the return of eight starters; Nick Freson, Cade Lacroix, Jackson Musco, Sean Gray, Christian Bourgea, Cody Caron, Connor Sahlin and
2012 Cougar baseball team Captains (L to R): Cody Caron, Sean Gray, Travis Manning, Chuck Neild
Chuck Neild. The ever tactical and colorful Gorham considers his outlook for the 2012 campaign to be “optimistically cautious,” not to be confused with cautiously optimistic. With the graduation of their ace on the hill as well as resident human hitting machine at the plate, Cullan Baker, the Cougars will look to a pitching rotation headed by sophomore Connor Sahlin and senior Travis Manning as well as a team-wide effort in the batter’s box-spearheaded by sweet-swinging sophomore Christian Bourgea. The Cougars field a very strong defensive unit which has played up to that billing thus far in pre- season action. In noting that he only has three seniors on the roster, Gorham says “we’ll be young, but battle tested.” The Cougars will face an extremely tough schedule this season and as defending champs, every opponent will be gunning for them. Campbell opens up the season with their first four games against Division II Pelham, then one of this year’s D-3 pre-season favorites, Hopkinton, the always tough Bow Falcons, followed by Somersworth, last year’s championship game losers, who just might be looking for a little retribution. In observance of the difficult start, Gorham offered; “we don’t have any cupcakes that’s for sure – not that we are looking for any” adding, “we’re going to find out right away what we need to work on”.
