U.S. Open: The perfect present for Father’s Day

By Anne MArie ToBin

BROOKLINE – It’s Father’s

Day and hundreds of dads and

sons/daughters are walking

around The Country Club’s

pristine golf course, sharing

their special day together as the

122nd U.S. Open Championship

reaches its exciting climax.

It makes us a bit teary-eyed

and gets us thinking about our

dads and how we bonded over

golf.

I grew up in a golf-crazed

home, and every Father’s Day

was spent either playing golf or

watching the U.S. Open. This

year was perhaps the most special

of all as most of the family

spent it at The Country Club.

My father, Peabody resident

Bill Locke, Sr., had a front-row

seat in the USGA Skybox stands

behind the 18th hole.

We were all in on this year’s

Open, playing a variety of roles.

We were spectators, tournament

volunteers and even had

a USGA staff member – my

daughter Abby – among us. We

were shoppers, scooping up

souvenirs and clothing at the

merchandise tent, just like most

of the 25,000 daily patrons who

crowded the tent all week long.

You’d think the USGA was

giving things away.

Our love for the game started

when I was 7 years old and

our parents (Bill and Barbara

Locke) joined another TCC,

as in Thomson Country Club.

We all thought my father was

a pretty good golfer. After all,

he did win the club’s Four-

Ball Championship one year.

Following his lead, my five siblings

and I all, along with our

mother, took up the game.

My father was (and still is) the

critical one, always finding that

one little thing that could have

been done differently to shave

a stroke or two off the score or

change the outcome of a match.

I believe that’s why I’ve always

had a competitive drive when

it comes to the game. When

people ask me how many state

titles I won, I never say seven; I

always say “It should have been

eight.”

My dad has set the bar pretty

high; he’ll turn 101 in October

and has his sights on extending

his record as the oldest person

to ever play in the Winchester

Father-Son Invitational, a tournament

that was founded in

1919. Perhaps this will be the

year my father shoots his age.

That is, if my brother Tim can

was but one thing we chatted

about at the end of a recent

workday at The Country Club

while we sipped a $14.50

Dewar’s Lemon Wedge, the official

cocktail of the U.S. Open.

Here are a few random

thoughts about the Open.

It was easier elbowing your

way toward a green to see the

action than navigating the

crowded merchandise tents to

grab a shirt or hat. It was just

insanity akin to the old Filene’s

Kevin Sullivan, a Thomson

Country Club member who

lives in Lynnfield, committed

to four five-hour shifts in the

merch tent as a cashier.

He and all volunteers paid

$249 for their uniform; “That’s

not a bad deal,” he said. “One of

the reasons I volunteered was to

be able to have access to watch

the tournament all week. That’s

a great part of the volunteer

commitment.”

Sullivan estimated that his

“We had 50 registers going

and from what I hear, this probably

will be the highest grossing

event ever,” Sullivan said.

Open winner Michael

Fitzpatrick could also thank a

shopper for his strong showing.

His errant drive on hole No. 18

Saturday nearly hit a couple

USGA colleagues but instead

hit someone’s $1,000+ bag of

merchandise. He would have

been in big trouble had it not.

“Had that ball not hit the

customer’s bag it would have

been really in trouble,” said

Lynnfield’s Abby Tobin,

who managed to duck past

Fitzpatrick’s shot. Tobin works

for the USGA Foundation.

nice transition into this role

with the mayor’s office.”

Bettencourt said Amico

rose to the top of what he described

as a “terrific group” of

candidates.

“I am very pleased to bring

Beth Amico to the mayor’s office,”

he said. “Her experience

and qualifications will be a

great asset to the city. I fully expect

her to thrive in this world.”

PACC Chairman of the Board

Matt Genzale said Amico’s

resignation is effective on

Wednesday, July 6.

“We at the PACC certainly

owe Beth a debt of gratitude

for all of the hard work and effort

she has put forth over the

past 18 months to rebuild our

chamber and its membership

when a pandemic hit it the

hardest,” Genzale said in a June

17 letter to PACC members.

“I am personally proud of

the accomplishments of the

chamber during her tenure as I

have worked closely with Beth

on the full board, E-board, and

as Chairman over that time.”

Genzale said he will be

working with the executive

board and full board to select the

next PACC executive director,

assuring members that chamber

business is uninterrupted.

“I will ensure that our

chamber does not miss a beat

during the process,” he said. “I

feel as though the PACC has

enjoyed overwhelming success

under Beth’s leadership, and we

will do everything we can to not

lose momentum through this

transition.

“I want to thank her for the accomplishments

we have all enjoyed

over the past 18 months,

wish her the best of luck in her

new position with the City of

Peabody, and look forward to

working with her in a different

capacity as part of her role in the

mayor’s office.”

Amico came to the chamber

in August 2018 as its office

manager. In November 2020,

she moved up to executive director,

replacing Julie Daigle

who left to accept the position

of director of development

at Mills58, the current home

of PACC. Daigle currently is

serving a first term on the City

Council representing Ward 4.

Amico said that working

with PACC Programs Director

Maria Terris, the Peabody Area

Chamber Board and its members

has been very rewarding.

“The PACC is a professional,

inclusive, informative, and fun

organization in which to be a

part and I wish them continued

success,” Amico said. “I look

forward to starting my new job

in early July.”

Cara Murtagh

Scholarship

awarded

BY ANNE MARIE TOBIN

The Peabody Education

Foundation (PEF) has announced

that Peabody Veterans

Memorial High School graduate

Gabriella Drinkwater is the

2022 Cara E. Murtagh Memorial

Scholarship winner.

“Gabriella is a well-rounded

student who is clearly committed

to excellence and working

toward the best possible chance

for a bright future,” said PEF

President and Chairman of the

Board David Gravel.

“She has applied herself

throughout high school, taking

challenging classes preparing

her to think on a higher level,

while helping to prepare her for

the demands of life in college.

She is the perfect choice for this

prestigious scholarship.”

Gravel said Drinkwater was

a unanimous decision based on

her accomplishments in the areas

of academics, leadership,

community service, and a proven

interest in pursuing a career in

the field of education. Drinkwater

will be attending Westfield

State University in the fall and

will major in elementary education.

PEF established the scholarship

to honor Murtagh’s memory,

her dedication and commitment

to education, and her

love for the school children of

Peabody.

“She will always be remembered

for her kind and loving

personality, her enthusiasm and

flawless attention to detail, and

her ability to develop strong relationships

with students, teachers,

parents, and administrators,”

Gravel said.

“Gabriella possesses that

same passion. In her essay she

states, ‘education provides the

foundation to succeed in life and

provides me with the opportunity

to make a difference in the

lives of others. The roadmap

for success lies before me and it

falls on me to take advantage of

this tremendous opportunity.’”

The PEF Murtagh scholarship

is in the amount of $2,500

and is awarded annually to a

PVMHS senior. Gravel said

Murtagh was an active member

of the PEF. A former teacher, she

moved up the ranks and became

superintendent of schools at the

start of the 2018-2019 school

year. She died suddenly in 2019.

Following her death, the

Murtagh family asked that in

lieu of flowers, donations be

made to the PEF. Donations and

messages came in from across

the country attesting to the love

and admiration so many shared

for her.

“Through this scholarship,

we hope to preserve Cara’s dedication

and commitment to the

education of the school children

of Peabody for years to come,”

Gravel said.

Award-winning country music singer and songwriter Annie Brobst and the Annie Brobst Band will

perform at the city’s free summer concert series on Saturday, Aug. 14 at Leather City Common.

Music Awards, winning honors

as the Overall Act of the Year,

Song of the Year (for Red Wine

on My Mind) and Country Act

of the Year.

“Red Wine on My Mind was

just a little, fun song we wrote

that just stays in your head the

first time you hear it,” Brobst

said. “So many country songs

are all about whiskey and rum

and beer, but I wanted something

a little more reflective of

me.

“We were told that it’s unheard

of to take away three

awards at the New England

Awards as the committee likes

to spread things around, but we

were told that’s just the fan vote

and the committee went, so we

were thrilled.”

She released her latest album,

“Where We Holler” on March

30, 2021, which shot to the top

of the iTunes Country Album

Chart, peaking at No. 2 behind

Carrie Underwood in the

country category and No. 8 in

all genres. As if that weren’t

enough, a video of Brobst

singing in a chair at her hair

stylist ended up going viral,

topping out at more than 9 million

views on Instagram.

“2021 was a great year for

us and to be No. 2 was just surreal,”

Brobst said. “And we’ve

had a couple of videos go viral.

The hair salon one was kind

of a silly thing but it gives us

so much exposure all over the

globe.”

Multiple songs from all of

her albums can be heard on the

“Backyard Country” Sunday

segment of Boston’s country

radio station 101.7, The Bull,

powered by iHeartMedia as

well as on Kruser’s Local Catch

on Country 102.5 WKLB. artist

of the week series.

Brobst says her unique style

of songwriting is inspired by

her own life, ranging from traditional

to pop country. With influences

like Miranda Lambert,

Ashley McBryde and Jason

Isbell, she adds a feminine

touch to what she calls a “brocountry

sound” and a powerful

authenticity to storytelling

through song.

Brobst is also performing

at several local venues this

summer. The band has a doubleheader

planned for Saturday,

June 25 when she will be performing

at the North Shore

Pride Day on Salem Common

in the afternoon and at a private

party in Peabody that night.

“The full band will be rockin’

as colorfully as we can,” Brobst

said.

The band is booked at

Stanzy’s Country Ranch on

Main Street in Peabody on

Thanksgiving Eve and is hoping

to perform at the International

Festival.

“We are booked solidly

through September and we’ve

applied and hope to perform at

the festival, but the truth is we

are also hoping to land a couple

of big ones that are pending,”

Brobst said.

Jocelyn Sullivan is new South School principal

By Anthony CAmmAlleri

South School Principal Mark

Higgins becomes Peabody’s

assistant superintendent of

schools July 1, with Jocelyn

Sullivan, who spent the last six

years as South School’s assistant

principal, succeeding him.

Superintendent Dr. Josh

Vadala announced Sullivan’s

and Higgins’ new positions

at a recent School Committee

meeting. When he introduced

Sullivan, Vadala said he was

confident that her experience as

assistant principal and as a special

education teacher makes

her the best fit for the role.

“Dr. Higgins is very well respected,”

Vadala said, adding

that his are “big shoes to fill,

and there’s really only one

person who can fill those shoes.

For the last six years Jocelyn

Sullivan has been assistant principal

at South school. She was

a special education teacher, and

she’s an excellent leader. She

is really the only person who I

think can come in and take over

this job.”

Higgins said that he looks

forward to representing the district

as superintendent, and believes

that Sullivan’s new position

will be a smooth transition.

“I’m really excited for the

opportunity to have a chance

to work throughout the district

and be a strong advocate for

all the students, and I’m really

happy that Ms. Sullivan will be

coming to work here. It will be

a very smooth transition, and

she’s going to make a great

school community even better,”

Higgins said. “Ms. Sullivan is

one of the most talented educators

I’ve ever had the pleasure

of working with. I know she’s

going to make a great principal,

and she’s very well prepared for

this position.”

Higgins went on to describe

Sullivan’s STEAM (science,

technology, engineering, arts,

and mathematics) events, the

success of which, Higgins said,

exemplifies Sullivan’s talent for

leadership in education.

“She organized what we call

a STEAM night for all of our

families in grades three, four

and five, and she had over 15

hands-on activities, she had a

group for the middle school,

and a group of high school students

here. It really captures her

outreach in the community and

her talent to present this really

strong hands-on learning experience,”

Higgins said. “She has

excellent communication skills,

she’s great at utilizing technology,

she’s bilingual, she has

a strong inclusive background,

so I think she’ll continue to be

a great resource for all the families

here at South School.”

Even though Sullivan starts

her new role this summer, she

said that when she starts, she

would like to focus on improving

students’ social skills

by bringing morning meetings

back. Sullivan said that she

would like to help kids build a

community and enhance their

interpersonal communication.

“There are a lot of things I

would like to focus on, one is

social and emotional learning –

these kids have lost a lot over

the last few years, because of

COVID, basic skills that they

usually learn at school such as

working on problem solving

skills, working together in a

group, partnerships, team collaboration.

I would like to work

on bringing morning meetings

back into our classrooms where

students work on community

building, guided through the

teacher, but also working with

other students, getting to know

each other, and building a sense

of community in their classrooms,”

Sullivan said.

Sullivan also said that she

plans on ensuring that each individual

student at South school

has access to more personal

education suited to their individual

ability levels.

“Another thing I really

would like to focus on is that

we’re seeing a little bit more

of a range in abilities, some

gaps, as a result of covid, and

I would like to see more center-based

learning so students

are getting more table time with

teachers where they’re getting

small group instruction. It can

be more individualized to their

needs,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan said that she’s excited

to start, as she will be able

to work more directly under

a leadership she admires and

respects.

“I’m excited about working

under this leadership, Josh

Vadala, Dr. Higgins, who will

be moving up as assistant superintendent,

Dr. Chase too,

I’m just really excited because

I think they all have a great vision

for a district that I love, so

I’m eager to see what we can do

together.”

Savvy Senior: How to Choose a

Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) Policy

DEAR

SAVVY

SENIOR: I’m planning to enroll

in original Medicare in a

few months and have been told

I probably need to get a Medicare

supplemental policy too.

Can you offer any tips on selecting

one?

ALMOST 65

Dear Almost,

If you’re enrolling in original

Medicare, getting a supplemental

policy (also known as Medigap

insurance) too is a smart

idea because it will help pay for

things that aren’t covered by

Medicare like copayments, coinsurance

and the Part A deductible.

Here are some tips to help

you choose an appropriate plan.

Medigap Plans

In all but three states (Massachusetts,

Minnesota, and Wisconsin),

Medigap plans, which

are sold by private health insurers,

are available to new enrollees

in eight different standardized

plans. These plans are

labeled with the letters A, B, D,

G, K, L, M and N, with two

more, C and F, that are only

available to those eligible for

Medicare before 2020.

Plan G is the most popular

policy among new enrollees because

it covers the most comprehensive

range of benefits.

Monthly premiums for Plan G

typically range between $100

and $300, depending on your

age and the state you reside in.

If that’s more than you’re willing

to pay, there are also

high-deductible plans that have

lower premiums but impose

higher out-of-pocket costs.

For more information on the

different types of plans and coverage

details, including Medigap

options in Massachusetts,

Minnesota, and Wisconsin, go to

Medicare.gov/publications and

type in “choosing a medigap policy”

in the Keyword box, and

download their 2022 guide. Or

call 1-800-MEDICARE and ask

them to mail you a copy.

How to Choose

To pick a Medigap policy that

works best for you, consider

your health, family medical history

and your budget. The differences

among plans can be

small and rather confusing.

To help you choose, visit

Medicare.gov/medigap-supplemental-insurance-plans

and

type in your ZIP code. This will

give you a list of the plans available

in your area, their price

ranges and the names, and contact

information of companies

that sell them. But to get specific

pricing information, you’ll

need to contact the carriers directly

or call your State Health

Insurance Assistance Program.

See ShipHelp.org or call 877-

839-2675 for contact information.

Since all Medigap policies

with the same letter must cover

the exact same benefits (it’s required

by law), you should shop

for the cheapest policy.

You’ll get the best price if you

sign up within six months after

enrolling in Medicare Part B.

During this open-enrollment

period, an insurer cannot refuse

to sell you a policy or charge

you more because of your

health.

You also need to be aware of

the pricing methods, which will

affect your costs. Medigap policies

are usually sold as either:

“community-rated” where everyone

in an area is charged the

same premium regardless of

age; “issue-age-rated” that is

based on your age when you

buy the policy, but will only increase

due to inflation, not age;

and “attained-age-rated,” that

starts premiums low but increases

as you age. Community-rate

and issue-age-rated policies

are the best options

because they will save you money

in the long run.

You can buy the plan directly

from an insurance company, or

you can work with a reputable

insurance broker.

Drug Coverage

You also need to know that

Medigap policies do not cover

prescription drugs, so if you

don’t have drug coverage, you’ll

need to buy a separate Medicare

Part D drug plan too. See

Medicare.gov/plan-compare to

compare plans. Also note that

SPONSORED BY

461 Boston Street, Unit B1 Topsfield

silverliningsolutions.com

Medigap plans do not cover vision,

dental care, hearing aids

or long-term care.

Alternative Option

Instead of getting original

Medicare, plus a Medigap policy

and a separate Part D drug

plan, you could sign up for a

Medicare Advantage plan (see

medicare.gov/plan-compare)

that provides all-in-one coverage.

These plans, which are sold

by insurance companies, are

generally available through

HMOs and PPOs that require

you to get your care within a

network of doctors.

Abby Bettencourt pitches for Peabody in the Division 1 State Softball Championship against Taunton.

By Matthew Roy

Tanners last ditch rally falls short

SOFTBALL

AMHERST – Every talented

team has had to experience

some growing pains

on the way to success. For

the Peabody softball team,

Friday’s Division 1 state final

against reigning champion

Taunton would likely fall into

that department.

The Tanners, who had lost

to Billerica in the North final

a season ago, showed plenty

of grit and determination in

coming back from 5-0 down

with three outs left in their

season. But it was the Tigers

who gamely held on to their

crown with a 5-3 win at Sortino

Field.

“When you get to this level,

everyone you play is going

to be good,” Peabody coach

Tawny Palmieri said. “It takes

something deeper than talent

in some cases at this point and

Taunton was the defending

champion and they showed

that.”

Unlike most of their run to

the title game, things didn’t

come easy for the Tanners

(22-3) on Friday night as senior

pitcher Liv Mendonca

kept Peabody off balance right

from the outset. TheTigers

(21-4) ace only struck out four

but she scattered four hits over

her 6 1/3 innings of work.

For Peabody, it was a reminder

of the sectional final

last year when Billerica ousted

them thanks in large part to a

pitcher with a good off-speed

ball.

“It threw us off our game

just enough,” Palmieri said of

Mendonca’s mix of pitches.

“We didn’t do a great job of

adjusting like we did against

Reading.”

Mendonca’s opposite,

Peabody’s Abby Bettencourt

struck out five and didn’t surrender

a walk. She was hit hard

in only one inning – the bottom

of the sixth – where Taunton

turned a 1-0 lead into a 5-0

lead.

Those runs proved to be critical

as the Tanners found a way

to make things very interesting

in their final at-bat.

Avery Grieco led things off

with a base on balls after which

Taunton coach Carrie Consalvi

lifted Mendonca to give her a

curtain call. Katherine Larson

took over in the circle as the

Tanners tried to make that

move a little premature. Kylie

Doolin greeted her with a sharp

single but Larson got the next

two batters on groundouts

that scored Grieco and moved

Doolin to third. Jessica Steed

then reached on a throwing

error that plated Doolin to

make it 5-2.

Bettencourt kept the Tanners

alive as she blasted a triple

to left-center, bringing Steed

around to cut the lead to two

and put the tying run at the

plate. Seeing things slipping

away, Consalvi put Mendonca

back in the circle and the senior

put an end to the drama by

getting Emma Bloom to fly out

to left to end the game.

“The girls gave it everything

they had,” Palmieri said.

“After the sixth, I tried to fire

them up and they fought right

to the end.”

The teams traded goose eggs

through the opening two and a

half innings before the Tigers

broke the ice in the bottom

of the third. No. 9 batter Mia

Fernandes led off with a sharp

double to center. After she was

sacrificed to third, Bettencourt

got the second out before

Kaysie DeMoura dumped a

single to short right, scoring

Fernandes.

That run looked especially

huge thanks to the groove that

Mendonca settled into through

the middle innings, retiring 12

of the 14 she faced from the

second through fifth innings.

Bettencourt also was strong in

the middle frames but in the

sixth, the Tigers finally broke

the dam.

Ava Venturelli got it started

with a one out infield single.

Haylie Krockta followed up

with a double down the left

field line to put two runners

in scoring position. Shortstop

Brittany Aldrich delivered the

critical blow as she drilled a

triple to the fence in center,

scoring Venturelli and Krockta

for a 3-0 lead.

Mendonca made it 4-0 on

a groundout to second before

Kylie Thorpe lifted a ball to

right that was just out of the

PHOTO| SPENSER HASAK

reach of Alanna Sweeney, resulting

in Thorpe coming all

the way around to make it 5-0

before the Tanners last-ditch

effort in the seventh.

Despite coming up short on

the big stage, Palmieri could

be nothing but proud of her

team and knows that getting to

Amherst was a great learning

experience for a group that

returns seven starters next

season.

“Now we know what it’s like

to get here,” Palmieri said. “It’s

our first time at this level and

we’re going to be better next

season because of it.”

Palmieri also acknowledged

the efforts of her two senior

starters, Emma Bloom and

Terrazzano, who helped in

many ways to bring Peabody

to the cusp of a title.

“Gina is going to be greatly

missed in so many ways,”

Palmieri said. “She was the one

who brought the buy in to what

we were doing as coaches. And

Emma was just a leader on and

off the field in everything.”

A father’s pride for two of Peabody’s best

SOFTBALL

By Matthew Roy

AMHERST – Mark

Bettencourt and Steve

Lomasney are two of the most

famous names to ever take the

field for Peabody High. But

on Friday afternoon at Sortino

Field on the campus of Umass-

Amherst, they were in a completely

different role: fathers

cheering on their daughters in

the Division 1 softball final.

Unfortunately for the

Tanners, the outcome wasn’t

what they had been working

for all season as the defending

champion Taunton broke open

a tight game with a four-run

sixth inning and then held off a

Peabody comeback in the seventh

to take a 5-3 victory.

For Bettencourt, who saw

daughters Abby and Isabel on

the mound and catching respectively,

there was a lot of

pride in seeing a group that

he coached all through Little

League finding their way to the

big stage.

“I’ve coached most of these

girls since they were six or

seven and they are like part of

the family,” Bettencourt said.

“They’ve been through so

much already in terms of winning

and they all feel like my

daughters in a way.”

For Lomasney, whose

daughter Logan played second

base on Friday, the duties of a

dad kept going right until game

time as he dropped off a case

of drinks into the dugout just

before the first pitch.

For Lomasney, who was a

catcher in the Red Sox organization,

the ride to the final had

been quite fun.

“It’s great,” he said. “It’s

been enough for me. I had my

good times but these are for

them. They will remember all

of this for a long time.”

It was Lomasney’s stellar

defensive effort in the semifinal,

diving toward the middle

to spear a ground ball and

throwing it to first for the out

with the bases loaded, that

saved the Tanners’ 3-2 win in

that game.

Playing on a big stage was

nothing new for most of this

talented team as they had won

championships at every level

beginning in Little League

right on through reaching the

North final last year and the

state title game on Friday. For

Peabody’s Isabel Bettencourt makes contact.

Bettencourt, who is also the

coach of the Peabody baseball

and football teams, it’s a different

feeling being on the outside

looking in.

“Honestly, it was harder

being a coach. You’re worried

about the team,” he said. “With

my kids as a part of the team,

you’re focused on your kids.

But all of these girls have had

so much success already and

honestly, they are all like my

kids.”

Lomasney had another way

of looking back at the loss

in last year’s North final as a

catalyst to the success that the

Tanners had in 2022.

“Losing the way they did

last year was very hard,” he

said. “Having seen them grow

up in Little League and have

the success they did, they had

never really faced the feeling

of losing.”

Even though they came up

short on Friday, the future isn’t

dimming for Peabody anytime

soon as they return seven

starters next season and have

an incoming class of freshmen

that Bettencourt knows well.

“The eighth graders that

are coming in next season all

played on those teams that won

over the last few years and they

are going to be very good,”

Bettencourt said.

District 16 Little League tournament opens Friday

YOUTH BASEBALL

By Steve Krause

The annual District 16 Little

League All-Star tournament --

also known as the Williamsport

Tournament -- will begin Friday

night at Peabody West’s Cy

Tenney Park with Pine Hill

playing against East Lynn.

There are some changes this

year, and they involve the Lynn

Little League system. Once

seven strong, Lynn’s Little

Leagues are down to four: East

Lynn, West Lynn, Wyoma and

Pine Hill.

Over the years, charters for

both Lynn Central, which was

located in the city’s Highlands;

and West Lynn National had

their charters revoked. The Nats

played at Barry Park, which is

now the home of the West Lynn

league.

East Lynn, which plays on

Alice O’Neil Field behind Lynn

English, merged with Lynn

Shore prior to the start of the

season. Pine Hill and Wyoma

remain the same, “but once the

two leagues merged, I changed

the boundaries a little bit to

create more balance,” said district

administrator Joe Baglieri.

Other changes over the last

two years are that Saugus is

officially one league. Initially,

said Baglieri, the two leagues

remained in place, but with one

board of directors.

“But Little League, without

giving too much warning, took

all the leagues working with one

board and merged them.”

Saugus’ main field is behind

the Veteran’s School --

Grabowski Field.

The teams competing to dethrone

Peabody Western in

District 16 are: West Lynn, East

Lynn, Pine Hill, Wyoma, Saugus,

Swampscott, Revere, Winthrop,

Lynnfield, Peabody and Peabody

Western and Salem.

Peabody Western won the state

championship last year, but lost

in the New England tournament.

The last team from the district to

make the Little League World

Series was Western, in 2019.

Saugus American -- one of the

two merged Saugus teams --

made it in 2003.


JUNE 23, 2022

By Maddi Filip

BURLINGTON — It took

a bit of a tussle to get there, but

the St. John’s Prep boys lacrosse

team will be playing for a state

championship Tuesday.

The Eagles won the right to

play Catholic Conference rival

BC High for the Division 1 title

Tuesday (5) at Worcester State

University with a grueling 12-8

win over Hingham Saturday

morning.

“It’s a great game you want to

be in,” said the Eagles’ Jimmy

Ayers. “ That’s a great team we

just played. Their defense did a

great job. So it was really difficult

for us to start putting balls in

the net.”

The top-seeded Eagles fell behind

early in the first quarter to

the No. 4 Harbormen, but kept

climbing out of the hole until

Ayers scored to give them the

lead.

The second quarter was a copy

and paste of the first, once one

team scored the other tied it back

up. Lucas Verrier and Harlan

Graber took turns keeping the

game tied while Tommy Sarni

put the team ahead for however

short the time was. As the

two teams headed to halftime

Hingham scored a last-second

goal tying the game at 5-5.

“We knew that they were going

to come out aggressive and ready

to play and we were excited for

that,” said the Eagles’ Charlie

Wilmot. “We haven’t really had

a game where we’ve been on our

The Eagles trailed for most of

the third quarter until Ayers not

only reminded Hingham who

he was by tying the game, but

scoring the go-ahead goal too.

That didn’t last long. Hingham

tied it right back up again at 7-7

going into the fourth quarter.

The final period started like the

previous three with the Eagles

trailing by one. Again Ayers reminded

Hingham that he was

still a force to be reckoned with

by bringing the game to its eighth

tie. Sarni then brought The Prep

to its fourth lead of the game.

And this time, The Prep ran it it.

Tim Haarmann added to the

lead, and Ayers extended it 15

seconds later with his fifth goal

of the game. Wilmot put the final

nail in the coffin just under the

two-minute mark leading the

team to its 12-8 victory.

“It’s been close in the third

fourth quarter, so I think as the

game went on we kind of settled

into that,” said Wilmot. “At the

beginning of the game, we were

holding the sticks too tight. At

halftime, the message was ‘you

prepared for this, be ready for

this, and just loosen up on the

sticks.’”

The Eagles are now set to

make a return trip to the finals

after winning last year.

“It’s awesome. Obviously the

final is where you want to be.

Fortunately enough we might

be able to get another one after

coming off of the win last year in

the championship,” said Ayers.

that’s their last game. Not a lot of

teams get to say to their seniors

— (that) this is gonna be our last

“We’re just thrilled that we get

three more days together. It’s like

we are maxing out the amount

of time this team can spend with

each other by getting to the state

championship,” said Prep coach

John Pynchon. “Whatever happens
