PEABODY — The Peabody

Area Chamber of Commerce

(PACC) Scholarship Committee

announced its scholarship

winners.

“The Chamber believes

that education is essential for

building a better tomorrow

for our students,” said PACC

President Beth Amico. “These

students passed a rigorous application

and interview process,

and PACC is sure that they will

thrive in their areas of study.”

Peabody High’s Edson

Uvalle received a Community

Service scholarship and will

major in nursing at Salem State

University. He feels that his

virtual learning experience will

serve him well in college.

“I think it’s actually a good

way to learn about college,”

said Uvalle. “I know college

isn’t every day, seven hours of

school, and it’s a mix of online

and in-person. So I feel like getting

this experience is a benefit

to me.”

Emily Thomas of Peabody

Veterans Memorial High

School was awarded a Business

Schools to

offer remote

option in fall

BY ANNE MARIE TOBIN

PEABODY — The district’s plans to

offer a fully-remote learning program

this fall are moving closer to reality, in

spite of last Thursday’s Department of

Elementary and Secondary Education

(DESE) announcement that all school

learning this fall, except for programs

already in place pre-pandemic, must be

in-person.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Josh

Vadala said he expects that Peabody’s

Personalized Remote Education Program

(Peabody P.R.E.P.) will be in place for

students for the start of the school year

in September.

“DESE’s guidance yesterday is in line

with what we expected,” said Dr. Vadala.

“It is of the utmost importance

“The Center for Linking Lives

aligns with this mission, and

we hope other donors will join

us in supporting this innovative

and transformational project,

which will help provide the

greatest outcomes for people

with disabilities.”

Opened in late 2020, the

Center for Linking Lives is the

new home for all of Northeast

Arc’s community-facing programs.

The agency revitalized

26,000 square feet of previously

unused retail space to

provide a range of services

including support for families

who have children diagnosed

with autism or other intellectual

disabilities, early intervention,

residential and health services,

supported employment,

The Center promotes community

redevelopment and

environmental sustainability

while serving as a national

model for other organizations

seeking to enhance inclusion

for people with disabilities in

underutilized community settings,

such as malls.

In order to fund the construction

of the Center for Linking

Lives, Northeast Arc launched

its first-ever capital campaign

last July.

“The traditional capital campaign

model is to raise money

before embarking on a project,

but as an agency we determined

the need for such an

inclusive space was so great

that we decided to begin construction

simultaneously with

the campaign,” said Jo Ann

Simons, president and CEO of

Northeast Arc.

“We are grateful that the

Kraft Family recognizes the

importance of the Center for

Linking Lives. Their support,

and gifts from future donors,

will help us as we create a

vibrant community where individuals

with disabilities

can reach their full potential

while leading fulfilling lives

alongside their peers,” Simons

added.

The Northeast Arc has raised

more than $2 million toward

its $3 million goal. Those interested

in supporting the

project can give by visiting

www.linkingliveschallenge.

org. Northeast Arc serves more

than 15,000 people in 190

Massachusetts cities and towns

each year. It is the largest

Arc in Massachusetts and the

second largest — of 700 — in

the country.

scholarship. She intends to

major in finance at the Villanova

School of Business in the fall.

Amber Kiricoples of Peabody

Veterans Memorial High School

was awarded a Community

Service scholarship. She will

major in marketing at Bentley

University, a school she feels

will give her what she needs to

succeed.

“The level of the academics

at Bentley is crazy,” Kiricoples

said. “They’re known as one of

the best business schools in the

country. I’ve always been really

interested in that and marketing

and know it will give me an

incredible foundation for my

future.”

Kiricoples, the 2020 Essex

Media Group Peabody Person

of the Year, also plans to bring

her talent to the women’s lacrosse

team, which had a record-setting

year, finishing

a program-best 12th in the

final Intercollegiate Women’s

Lacrosse Coaches Association

poll of the season. The team

won its first Northeast-10

championship and also notched

its first NCAA tournament bid

in program history.

PACC scholarships are available

to college-bound Peabody

residents as well as residents

or non-residents employed

by a Peabody Area Chamber

of Commerce member, and

Peabody residents or non-residents

Graduates of the Peabody

Young Entrepreneurs Academy

are also eligible.

The scholarship application

process required applicants to

provide an academic history,

short essay, documentation of

Schools to offer remote

SCHOOLS

FROM PAGE 1

“They will not allow traditional

in-person schools to offer

hybrid or remote learning next

year. Peabody plans for all of

our current schools (eight elementary

schools, Higgins

Middle School and Peabody

High) to be fully in-person

... We have applied for a single-district

virtual school because

that is the only way to

offer remote learning next year.

It’s an additional option for our

students who will benefit from

it or need it.”

Dr. Vadala said virtual-learning

schools have been

around “for some time.

“The legislation to allow these

community virtual schools isn’t

new, but other than places like

TEC Connections Academy

and Greenfield MAVA, it really

hasn’t been utilized before,” he

said. “We knew that a virtual

program within our schools was

not going to be an option in the

fall, so we wanted to formalize

a program that will be allowed.

The only way to do that is to

apply as a single-district program

so the state knows we

have accountability.”

The district based its decision

to offer remote learning on an

initial interest survey. The district

followed with an online

pre-registration to gauge the

interest level. Dr. Vadala said

the district is one of 13 seeking

state approval for fully-remote

learning. Approximately 140

K-12 students have informed

the district they are committed

option this fall

to P.R.E.P.

“We had a lot of students

who were happy with remote

learning and wanted to finish

out the school year remotely

so as to limit disruptions,” Dr.

Vadala said. “We know many

of them will come back to inperson

in the fall, but we still

have many who are not keen on

hybrids and who prefer remote

learning. We believe that a portion

of our population will benefit

from this and we wanted to

be out in front.”

In an informational video

posted on the district’s website,

several persons indicated their

strong preference for a fully-remote

program.

“My child has learned so

much this year,” said Jess

Perrault, adding that her child

has met many more people than

she would have with in-person

learning.

“Remote learning really gives

students a more personalized

learning experience,” said Erin

Graham, a third-grade remote

teacher.

Executive Director of Remote

Learning Dr. Chris Lord said

more than 1,300 students were

involved in remote learning this

year with approximately 800

still taking classes remotely.

Lord cited numerous reasons

why P.R.E.P. presents a “perfect

option” for learning.

“The home is a better learning

environment for some students.

Also, personal time increases,

as there is less time spent on

or waiting for buses, and there

is more free time for parents

to spend with their students,”

he said, adding that remote

students can still participate in

after-school activities, such as

clubs and sports.

The district has submitted an

application to DESE. Vadala

expects that he will receive

feedback on the program by

the first week of June. After

that, the matter goes before the

School Committee, then to the

State for final approval. Once

approved, students may begin

the registration process.

Remote K-5 students’ daily

routines will be “very much like

it is now,” Lord said. Learning

and teaching will be based on

the current curriculum, just as

the district does with in-person

learning. At the high-school

and middle-school levels, core

academics (math, science,

English and social studies) will

be taught in the morning with

electives taking place in the

afternoon.

Fifth-grade student Yanna

Felismino said she is excited

about the future.

“This year has been an adventure

for me and I can’t wait

to see what’s ahead,” she said.

“This is probably the silver

lining to the pandemic,” said

Lord. “Students have experienced

an extraordinary learning

experience this year. Remote

learning is becoming a part of

the adult world that students

need to be prepared for. It seems

like the Peabody learning community

wants to have an opportunity

like this in the future for

their children and we are going

to provide it.”

Draft school

budget hearing

BY THOR JOURGENSEN

PEABODY — The $76.6

million public-school spending

plan for the budget year that

begins on July 1 will be presented

at two hearings this

week, including a Thursday,

June 3 session at 7 p.m. in the

Higgins Middle School library,

85 Perkins St.

With public schools and the

city emerging from COVID-

19’s grip, the 29-page budget

summary outlines challenges

facing the public schools.

Out of 6,017 enrolled students,

49.2 percent are classified

in the budget by school

administrators as high-needs

students. Almost one third of

the city’s public school students

are defined as economically

disadvantaged and 9 percent are

classified as English language

learners.

Superintendent Josh Vadala’s

draft spending plan includes

a $1.7 million reduction in

spending when the draft budget

is compared to spending in

fiscal year 2021. According to

the draft, the cuts include reductions

of more than 10 percent

each for the Burke and Carroll

Elementary Schools.

The cuts — as currently proposed,

and subject to School

Committee review — include

teacher reductions at both

schools.

The draft budget partly reflects

enrollment trends at

schools. Burke is projected to

see a student enrollment drop

from 249 students this year to a

projected 238 in the upcoming

school year. By contrast,

schools like McCarthy and

South Elementary are projected

to see enrollment increases.

BY ALLYSHA DUNNIGAN

PEABODY — Aidan Dwyer

made the most of his senior year

at Bishop Fenwick during a pandemic

by trying new things and

using his involvement in clubs to

help others.

Dwyer was the captain of his

soccer and track and field teams,

but when the pandemic forced

schools to create a “fall 2” season,

Dwyer took the suggestion

of his friends and played football

for the first time.

A soccer player for his entire

life, Dwyer said he had never had

the opportunity to play football

because it shares a season with

soccer. However, during fall 2

Dwyer played on the Fenwick

football team as kicker, putting

his soccer skills to good use.

“I’m big on opportunities,

and this just seemed like a good

one,” Dwyer said.

Athletics have been a large

part of Dwyer’s life for a while,

but he also devotes his time to

helping his community.

As a member of the Best

Buddies Club at Fenwick, Dwyer

has spent time working with

people with developmental disabilities

and autism by attending

events and, in the last year, virtual

meetings and outdoor gatherings.

Dwyer is also a member of

STUDENT OF

THE WEEK

Giving back is his goal

the Peabody Rotary Club, where

he assists with campus ministry

projects such as cleaning up the

city, hosting events with foster

children and engaging with residents

of Peabody.

He said he loves to do things

that benefit the community and

Fenwick offered a lot of opportunities

for that.

All of these activities and

clubs were altered because of

the pandemic, but Dwyer said he

took things day-by-day and tried

to make the most of it.

As for the future, Dwyer will

be attending Xavier University

in the fall and will be studying

marketing.

Dwyer said his father works

in marketing, so growing up and

seeing his father enjoy the work

he did influenced him to pursue

the same career.

As of now, Dwyer is planning

to study general marketing but

hopes to eventually transition

into sports marketing so he can

combine his love for sports with

his chosen career path.

He said his last four years in

high school went by fast, but he

is nervous and excited for his

next chapter.

“Everything happened so

quickly, but I am looking forward

to my next steps,” Dwyer

said. “I’m excited I get to at least

have a graduation that my family

can attend.”

We want to hear

from you!

June dates for lifting

the COVID-19 rules

For the Weekly NeWs

PEABODY — Mayor Edward

A. Bettencourt, Jr. announced

that, effective June 15,

he will lift the state of emergency

that he issued for the city last

March.

Bettencourt cited dramatically-improved

COVID-19 metrics

as well as guidance from the

state and CDC.

“The latest data from the

Health Department shows that

we have turned a remarkable

corner in our pandemic response,”

he said. “The rate of

new COVID cases in Peabody

and the percentage of positive

tests are at their lowest rates

since last October."

Bettencourt said more than

61 percent of Peabody residents

have received at least one dose

By AllyshA DuNNigAN

of vaccine (34,016 people), and

51 percent are fully vaccinated

(28,390 people).

Beginning this week, masks

will not be required for fully-vaccinated

individuals inside

of City Hall, including employees

and the public.

People who are not fully

vaccinated are asked to continue

wearing masks and to maintain

a safe distance from others.

Employees and members of the

public may continue to wear

masks if they choose.

City Hall will be open to the

public during regular business

hours beginning on Monday,

June 21. These hours are Monday,

Tuesday and Wednesday

from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursday

from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.;

and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to

12:30 p.m.

All offices will be fully

City Hall will maintain one

entrance located on the Chestnut

Street side of the building.

“Since the pandemic began

fourteen months ago, our City

staff has worked tirelessly to ensure

that Peabody residents and

businesses continued to receive

the highest level of municipal

services,” Bettencourt said.

He added: “Now, with vaccinations

increasing and public

health data continuing to improve,

and with guidance from

the state and CDC, we can return

City Hall to regular business

hours safely and responsibly.”

Fun is the rule In the Game

PEABODY — In The

Game, located where Bonkers

once stood on Lowell Street, offers

35,000 square feet of food

and games, all of which are now

fully open.

The pandemic halted the usual

birthday parties and events

hosted at In The Game, but the

restaurant has been opened, following

COVID-19 guidelines.

According to William Michalski,

regional director of operations

for In The Game, customers

can come and eat at their

full-serve restaurant and bar, but

do not have to participate in the

nearby games.

If one chooses to incorporate

games into their visit, cards

and tickets can be purchased for

the ropes course, virtual reality

games, mini bowling, laser tag

and more.

There are also packages available

that offer discounts for the

more games purchased.

“We have about 80 games, so

there is a lot to choose from,” Michalski

said.

In The Game reopened at 20

percent capacity in October, but

Michalski said these limitations

and the slow reopening of indoor

entertainment venues negatively

affected the business.

Since the busy season at In

The Game is from January to

April, Michalski said they missed

that opportunity but are hoping

to bounce back with their partnerships

with summer programs

such as local YMCAs and youth

groups.

Gov. Charlie Baker allowed

for the state to reopen Saturday,

with no restrictions for people

who have been vaccinated, and

as such Michalski said they are

following state guidelines and are

giving their employees a bonus if

they get vaccinated.

In The Game is about three

years old, so Michalski said they

are still trying to work on their

brand and plan to incorporate

more marketing and outreach as

things start to get back to normal.

Smith Barn as she checks to make sure everything is in place

for the wedding being held that evening.

Summer is wedding

time at Smith Barn

For the Weekly News

Peabody Historical Society &

Museum property available for

weddings.

It features charming country

ambience and modern amenities

for weddings. Dine and dance in

the spacious main room, which

comfortably accommodates

groups of up to 240 people.

Located at 38 Felton St., the

historic Smith Barn is situated

on a picturesque hilltop surrounded

by two hundred and

fifty acres of orchards and conservation

land. Located at the

Felton-Smith Historic Site adjacent

to Peabody’s Brooksby

Farm, the Smith Barn is the perfect

setting for your special day.

Rich in beauty and significance,

the site represents over three

centuries of the region’s history

and is home to several historic

landmarks.

Ample parking is available,

and the first floor of the barn

is wheelchair accessible. Smith

Barn is available for rent from

June is National Safety Month

For the Weekly NeWs

Important information from

the National Center for Injury

Prevention and Control:

There are four things you can

do to prevent falls:

Speak up. Talk openly with

your health care provider about

fall risks and prevention. Have

your doctor review your medicines.

Keep moving. Begin an exercise

program to improve your

strength and balance.

Get an annual eye exam. Replace

eyeglasses as needed.

Make your home safe: Remove

clutter and tripping hazards.

Contact your local community

or senior center for

information on exercise fall-prevention

programs, and options

for improving home safety.

Stay independent: One in

four people 65 and older fall

each year. What can you do to

stay independent?

Many people make financial

plans for retirement, but not everyone

plans for other changes

that may come with age. This includes

changes in your mobility

and your ability to get around.

It isn’t easy to talk about, but

as we get older, physical changes

Rooted in

Your Health

PILGRIM REHABILITATION

& SKILLED NURSING

can make it harder to get around

and do things we want or need

to do, like driving, shopping or

doing household chores. (There

may be a time when you still

need to get around, but can no

longer drive.)

You might not have mobility

problems now, but you could in

the future. You may even know

others who already do: perhaps a

parent, relative, friend or neighbor.

While it may not be possible

to prevent all of these changes,

there are actions you and your

loved ones can take today, and

as you age, to help keep you safe

and independent tomorrow.

Our team of clinical professionals get you home feeling

healthier and stronger following an illness or surgery. You at

your best! We are proud to offer high quality rehabilitative

care through our Steps to Strength Program including:

Peabody seniors get help from

the Greater Boston Food Bank

For The Weekly NeWs

BOSTON – Serving Peabody

along with other communities

across Eastern Massachusetts,

the Greater Boston Food Bank

(GBFB) is the sole administrator

for the Commodity Supplemental

Food Program (CSFP) in

Massachusetts.

CSFP is a federal program that

supports monthly nutritious food

access for low-income seniors 60

years or older. Due to recent increases

in federal funding, GBFB

has announced it has been able

to increase its caseload for the

program, providing much needed

nutritious food to low-income

seniors during a time of heightened

need due to the COVID-19

pandemic.

“We are grateful for our partners

in this effort, The Massachusetts

Department of Elementary and

Secondary Education (DESE),

which manages the CSFP contract

with the USDA, as well

as senior centers, low-income

senior housing sites and our

member agencies,” said Catherine

D’Amato, president and CEO of

GBFB. “Together we are getting

healthy, nutritious food into the

hands of our most vunerable seniors

who need it, and doing so

in an even more significant way

thanks to this additional caseload.”

In January 2021, GBFB received

a caseload increase of

165 cases per month. On April

29, GBFB received an additional

caseload increase of 109 cases

per month through the American

Rescue Plan Act. bringing GBFB’s

caseload to where it stands today

at 2,700 cases per month.

Christina Peretti, assistant director

of programs and community

capacity at GBFB, was recently

appointed a board member

of the National CSFP Association.

She has been actively involved

in advocating at the Federal level

to ensure adequate funding for

the program during the FY22 appropriations

process. Increased

funding and support for federal

programs is a key recommendation

out of GBFB’s recent “Gaps

in Food Access in Massachusetts

During COVID-19” report.

“CSFP is a critical resource for

seniors in our state,” said Peretti.

“We are pleased with the increased

support for this program

and remain committed to ensuring

that nutrious food is available to

all of our vulnerable neighbors,

especially low-income seniors.”

GBFB currently has 38 CSFP

sites in Eastern Massachusetts with

partners in Acushnet, Arlington,

Attleboro, Bedford, Billerica,

Boston, Brockton, Brookline,

Danvers, Dartmouth, East Boston,

Fairhaven, Lawrence, Lowell,

Lynn, Marblehead, Medford,

Milton, New Bedford, Newton,

Peabody, Quincy, Randolph,

Revere, Rochester, Salem,

Somerville, Stoughton, Taunton

and Waltham.

More information on CSFP eligibily

requirements, and how to

get food can be found at fns.usda.

gov/csfp.

The Greater Boston Food Bank

is the largest hunger-relief organization

in New England and among

the largest food banks in the

country. In response to the economic

impact of the COVID-19

pandemic, GBFB distributed the

equivalent of nearly 82 million

meals in 2020 through its network

of 600 dedicated food distribution

partners and programs

in the 190 cities and towns across

Eastern Massachusetts. A member

of Feeding America, the nation’s

food bank network, GBFB’s mission

is to end hunger here and it

is committed to providing at least

three healthy meals a day to everyone

in need. Massachusetts

saw an overall increase in food

insecurity of 55 percent from

2019 to 2020, according to a new

survey conducted by The Greater

Boston Food Bank (GBFB) in collaboration

with the National Food

Access and COVID Research

Team (NFACT) and funded by the

Hunger to Health Collaboratory

(H2HC) and Stop & Shop,

founding member of H2HC.

Latinx and Black residents, who

were impacted at higher rates by

the COVID-19 pandemic and its

economic effects, were also disproportionately

impacted when

it came to food insecurity, perpetuating

disparities that existed

before the pandemic. Among the

barriers to food access revealed in

the report, self-reliance and stigma

were found to be some of the top

reasons for gaps in food assistance

utilization.

The study, “Gaps in Food

Access During the COVID-19

Pandemic in Massachusetts,” was

conducted by GBFB’s Business

and Data Analytics team and led

by GBFB epidemiologist, Dr.

Rachel Zack. The researchers

polled 3,000 residents online between

October 2020 and January

2021 and estimated that 30 percent

– or 1.6 million adults in the

state – were experiencing food insecurity

at the time of the survey.

Among Massachusetts residents,

58 percent of Latinx adults, 45

percent of Black adults, 26 percent

of Asian adults, 24 percent

of white adults and 42 percent of

adults with children reported experiencing

food insecurity.

The statewide survey was

conducted to identify the prevalence

of food insecurity during

COVID-19, as well as gaps and

disparities in food assistance use,

and to develop data-driven recommendations

to increase food

access. Low-income adults were

oversampled to reach those most

likely in need of food assistance

and statistical methods were used

to obtain estimates representative

of the Massachusetts population.

“The COVID-19 pandemic

created historic need and unprecedented

challenges, at levels unseen

during my 25 years leading

The Greater Boston Food Bank,”

said Catherine D’Amato, GBFB

President and CEO. “The results

of the study reflect what we already

experienced – that the need

jumped dramatically and continues

to disproportionately impact

people of color. While we,

and our network of community

partners, are inspired and energized

by the progress we’ve made

to combat the pandemic, the economic

effects will linger indefinitely

for those who are suffering

from long-term unemployment.

There is much more work to be

done.”

Buckley looks

back on a

successful year

By Mike Alongi

PEABODY — It’s been a

busy senior year for Bishop

Fenwick’s Cade Buckley.

Between golf in the fall, basketball

in the winter, picking a

college and volunteering his

time to charitable causes, he’s

hardly had time to sit down.

But he wouldn’t have it any

other way.

“It’s been a crazy year, but it’s

been a fun year,” said Buckley.

“There was so much uncertainty

after the pandemic, so I

feel very fortunate that I was

able to compete in both of my

senior seasons this year.”

Buckley had the interesting

distinction this year of being the

first player to compete again in

North Shore high-school sports

following the easing of pandemic

restrictions. He was the

No. 1 player for Fenwick’s golf

team, which played the first

high-school varsity match of

any sport back on Sept. 27.

Buckley had a stellar year on

the golf course, with the senior

captain averaging roughly 31

points per match in the No. 1

slot for the Crusaders. He was

named both a Daily Item All-

Star and a Catholic Central

League All-Star for his efforts.

“I played really well this

year, and I think it was really

a buildup from all the work

I’ve put in over the past four

years,” said Buckley. “Before

this season, I was a really upand-down

kind of player. I think

the biggest improvement for me

was my consistency, and I was

able to score about 30 points in

every match.”

He took that momentum from

golf right into the basketball

season, helping Fenwick to a

successful season along the

way.

“Basketball was so fun, and

it was such a great group of

guys,” said Buckley. “Playing

with the COVID guidelines was

a little weird at first, but just to

be out there playing with the

guys again was worth it.”

Peabody first baseman Brendan Smith laced a double and had two RBI in a loss to Marblehead

last Friday.

Late struggles hurt Tanners

in loss to Marblehead

BASEBALL

By Mike Alongi

PEABODY — Behind a

nine-run rally in the top of the

seventh inning, the Marblehead

baseball team came from behind

to take down Northeastern

Conference foe Peabody by

a score of 11-5 on the road

Wednesday afternoon. The

Magicians benefitted in part

from a tough defensive inning

for Peabody, as the Tanners

made three errors in the top

of the seventh alone and

Marblehead responded with

nine unearned runs.

“I think one of the things we

benefit from is that we have a

ton of guys who can play a lot

of different roles for us, and we

were eventually able to get two

guys in scoring position and

put a lot of pressure on the defense,”

said Marblehead coach

Mike Giardi. “The guys just

kept battling all night, but at the

same time we have to come out

more focused early in the game.

We gave them a couple of runs

early, but the way we battled

our way out of it was great to

see.”

For the Tanners, who were

three outs away from a solid

NEC victory before three errors

led to all nine runs in the seventh

inning being unearned, it’s

a tough loss to take.

“That was the ultimate implosion,”

said Peabody coach

Mark Bettencourt. “In a game

where every pitch mattered and

every base mattered, to have

that game end like that was just

depressing. That’s not us, that’s

not what we usually do. So now,

our guys have to take a look in

the mirror.”

AJ Andriano earned the win

on the mound in relief for the

Magicians, pitching 1 1/3 innings

and allowing one run on

two hits. Ben Weed pitched the

first 5 2/3, allowing four runs on

five hits with three strikeouts.

On the offensive side of

things, Schuyler Schmitt went

2-for-4 with three RBI to lead

the way. Shane Keough went

1-for-3 with two RBI, while

Sami Loughlin (2-for-3) and

Andrew Titus (1-for-4) each

had one RBI.

Justin Powers took the toughluck

loss for the Tanners, going

6 1/3 innings and allowing 11

runs (two earned) on seven hits

with eight strikeouts.

Brendan Smith led the

Peabody offense, going 2-for-4

with a double and two RBI.

Nick Villano (1-for-4, double),

Mike Krause (1-for-3) and

Scott Hurley (0-for-2) each had

one RBI in the loss.

The Tanners got off to a great

start, scoring in the bottom of

the first behind an RBI double

from Smith and then tacking on

another on an RBI groundout

from Hurley in the bottom of

the second. In the bottom of

the fifth, the Tanners scored on

a fielder’s choice to take a 3-0

lead.

Marblehead finally got things

going in the top of the sixth,

starting with an RBI double

from Schmitt to make it 3-1.

Loughlin added an RBI single

of his own to make it 3-2, but

Peabody was able to escape the

inning without further damage.

After Krause put Peabody

ahead 4-2 with an RBI single

in the bottom of the sixth, the

Tanners needed just three outs

to walk away with the win.

But Marblehead had other

plans.

A walk, a fielder’s choice

and a groundout put runners on

second and third with one out,

then a throwing error brought

home the first Magicians run.

Another walk loaded the bases,

then another Peabody error

tied the game at 4-4. Things

continued downhill for the

Tanners from there, as Schmitt

laced a two-run single to give

Marblehead a 6-4 lead. Another

error with the bases loaded

brought home two more runs,

then a two-run double from

Keough blew the game open

at 10-4. One more Peabody

error capped things off, as

Marblehead brought home

one more run to round out the

scoring.

Peabody (5-4) will try to rebound

against Salem Thursday

afternoon (4).

“I told the guys after the

game, ‘fellas, you know what’s

worse than this? Coming out

(Thursday) and not playing

well and losing to Salem,’” said

Bettencourt. “That’s going to be

worse. We can’t press rewind

and play this seventh inning

again. What’s done is done,

so we have to move on and

come out with a better effort

(Thursday).”

Marblehead (7-2) plays on

the road at Swampscott Friday

evening (6:30).

“I think for us, this was just

another learning experience,”

said Giardi. “Everything we do

now is learning as we lead up to

that tournament at the end of the

year, and we made a couple of

mistakes early that we want to

learn from.”

Buckley looks back on

a successful year

BUCKLEY

FROM PAGE 10

With his athletic prowess,

his academic achievements and

his volunteering with the Stock

Club and My Brother’s Table,

Buckley was recently honored

by Salem Country Club

as one of the Joseph O’Boyle

Memorial Fund Scholarship

recipients.

The scholarships are for college-bound

seniors who reside in

Peabody, attend either Peabody

High or Bishop Fenwick and

have excelled in leadership,

athletics, academics and community

service. Buckley was

honored alongside classmates

Colby Browne, Aidan Dwyer

and Hannah Johnson as well as

Peabody High’s Olivia Barrete,

Lily Bromberger, Sophie Izzo

and Amber Kiricoples.

“It was a great ceremony and

a great honor, and I’m really

humbled to be chosen because

I know that there were so many

great applicants,” said Buckley.

“It was great to be up there with

Colby, Aidan and Hannah as

well. We’re all friends and we

always talk about Peabody pride

and never forgetting where you

came from.”

Buckley also found his future

home at St. Joseph’s College

in Standish, Maine, where he

plans to major in business administration/sports

management

and play on the golf team.

“I’m really excited to get

started up there,” said Buckley.

“I’ve already made some great

relationships and I’ve met a

bunch of great people, but I

know the hard work isn’t finished.

Golf isn’t an easy sport,

and I know there’s plenty I need

to work on to get ready for next

season.”

Now that Buckley is officially

a high-school graduate

(Fenwick’s ceremony took place

Thursday evening at Donaldson

Stadium), he’s got eyes toward

his summer schedule — which

includes a lot of golf.

“I haven’t fully set up my

schedule yet, but I know that

I’m going to be playing in the

North Shore Amateur (at Far

Corner Golf Club) and there

are a bunch of Mass Golf tournaments

that I have my eye on.

Other than that, the plan is to

play a bunch of golf with my

teammates and continue to prepare

for the fall. It’s going to be

a packed schedule, but that’s

how I like it.”

Peabody relay team breaks

records at Div. 1 meet

Saturday was a banner day

for the Peabody girls track team

despite the cold, damp weather,

as the Tanners saw their 4×100-

meter and 4×200-meter track

teams both set new records at

the Massachusetts State Track

Coaches Association (MSTCA)

Division 1 State Relays on their

home track at Peabody Veterans

Memorial High School.

The relay team — which is

made up of Savanna Vargas,

Sadai Headley-Mawasi, Dado

Nasso and Jolene Murphy —

took first place in the 4×100

after breaking both a Div. 1

state relay record and a Peabody

school record with a time of

49.05 seconds. In the 4×200,

the group took first place and

set a new Tanners record with

a time of 1:44.06. The group’s

performances in the two relays

helped push Peabody to a sixth

place finish as a team with a

total of 34 points.

Also performing well for the

Tanners on the day was Arlene

Davila, who finished first in

the discus with a distance of

97 feet, 8 inches. Davila also

finished second in the shot put

with a distance of 33 feet, 9 1/4

inches.

GIRLS TRACK

MSTCA Division 4 Relays

Bishop Fenwick – 7th place

(28 points)

Nasha Arnold had a solid

day for the Crusaders, finishing

second in the javelin (87-6) and

third in the discus (81-7). Julia

Loescher finished second in the

discus (82-2) and fourth in the

javelin (84-10).

BOYS TRACK

MSTCA Division 1 Relays

Peabody – 10th place (20

points)

The Tanners got a strong performance

from Peter Gardikas,

who finished sixth in the discus

(118-9) and 10th in the shot put

(42-5 1/2). Shea Lynch placed

fifth in the javelin (133-11).

MSTCA Division 4 Relays

Bishop Fenwick – 5th place

(32 points)

The Crusaders were buoyed

by the first-place finish of the

4×800 relay team of Wyatt

Burr, Tyler DeClercq, Matt

Gerdenich and Matt Cinelli,

who won with a time of 9:04.95.

Fenwick also took the top three

places in the discus, with Matt

Juneau finishing first (119-3),

Max Gibbs finishing second

(110-0) and Franklin Quintin

finishing third (103-4).
