“We’ll have to pick on our older brother Bob,” said Giunta, who played football and lacrosse in high school and went on to be a three-year starter in football for Tufts University, where he was an Academic All-American and electrical engineering major. “Bob was a two-sport athlete at Beverly and played football at Brown. For now he’s the only one not in the Hall of Fame, but that could change.”
Giunta captained the 1979 football team and was named team MVP as well as winning the Bucci Award as the Panthers’ top lineman. A lacrosse defenseman, he led Beverly to the state tourney in both his junior and senior years. He was captain and MVP in lacrosse and named a Northern Lacrosse Division first team all-star.
“It’s wonderful to be in this class with so many great people,” said Giunta, who lives in Andover. “The thing I loved most about Beverly was playing sports with my closest friends, people I’d known since I was 10 years old.”
Pam Jalbert Morose (Class of 1983) made the trip from her home in St. Thomas to see old friends and be inducted for her athletic prowess as field hockey and softball captain, followed by her coaching accomplishments. A prolific scorer, she set the all-time record in field hockey with 55 goals and 17 assists, including an astonishing 30 goals her senior year. She went on to have a great career at Salem State, leading the Vikings to the NCAAs before returning to her alma mater to coach field hockey.
“This is fabulous,” said Morose. “I can’t believe all the people who have shown up for me, even my junior high coaches. It’s amazing, just overwhelming. I’m proud to be part of the Hall of Fame because for me Beverly High means tradition, always striving to put great teams on the field. To this decade that tradition continues, and I am very lucky to be part of the school and contribute with so many great coaches.”
