Beverly 116, Revere 14: The Panthers (3-2) were led by Nicole Kirsch who won the discus (107-8) and the shot put (33-3). Kendall Davy won the high hurdles (15.9), the high jump (5-feet) and the 200 (27.7). Caitlin Harty won the 400 (62.0) and the long jump (15-9).

Swampscott 85, Gloucester 51: Melinda Wilson (shot put, discus), Nancy Do (long jump, high jump), Aisling Dennehy (triple jump, 400) and Sarah Kelley (800, low hurdles) all won two events as the Big Blue prevailed. Also winning events were Vy Le (high hurdles), Shauna King (javelin) and Tiara Smith-Matthews (100).


BC High 4, St. John’s Prep 1: The Eagles (7-1) dropped their first league match of the season with Dan Cunningham winning (6-1, 6-0) at No. 3 singles. Both doubles matches went to three sets, but the B.C. High managed to win them both and will likely share the Catholic Conference title with St. John’s.

Hamilton-Wenham 5, Matignon 0: Third singles player Kobi Najuchi (6-3, 6-2) and doubles team Al vonStaats/Scotty Hughes (6-0, 6-0) earned their first varsity wins as the Generals improved to 4-1.

Salem 3, Revere 2: The Witches earned their first win of the season by sweeping doubles with victories by Marlena Udden/Madison Ballou (6-1, 6-0) and Kayti LeFrancois/Jodi Dimyuga (6-0, 6-2). Kim Barzola picked up a win at singles, 6-2, 6-2.


St. Joseph’s Maine 10, Gordon 8: Starting pitcher Brian Harrington had an RBI in the ninth, as did Geoffrey Brown, but Gordon couldn’t come all the way back against the Monks. Alex German and Stephen Crawford each went 3-for-5 for the Fighting Scots (16-20) but St. Joe’s scored six times in the seventh to break the game open.

Salem State 7, Babson 5: The Vikings (22-13) scored six in the eighth sparked by Brett Cahill’s 2-run double and Andrew Guido nailed down his fourth save. Richard Fecteau went 5-for-5 at the dish for Salem State and former Masco standout Pat Matvichuk had a hit for Babson.
