Wednesday's area roundup: Salem girls basketball seals tournament berth



Fenwick shines at USATF New Englands: Fenwick had three athletes place in the Massachusetts Weight Throw Championship yesterday at Reggie Lewis. On the girls’ side, Maggie Lepley took second with a throw of 38-9 1/4 and Carolyn Claveau placed third with a toss of 34-0. Claveau’s throw reached the national qualifier mark.

Patrick Corcoran finished second for the boys, throwing 55-0. Fenwick’s throwers will compete in the New England Weight Throw Championship in Providence, R.I. next Tuesday.


Swampscott 4, West Springfield 1: The Big Blue tied a program record with their 15th win. The only other time Swampscott reached 15 wins was in the 1989-90 season. Devon Wall, Corey Carmody, Chris Carman and Tyler Peterson each scored goals for Swampscott (15-5). Carmody and Carman also added one assist each while Trevor Massey recorded three assists.

“Fifteen was the mark and we knew if we got it tonight we’d at least share the best record in Swampscott history,” Big Blue coach Gino Faia said. “It was a good accomplishment by the guys and it was a good team win tonight against a solid Division 3 West team.”

BEVERLY 3, LYNNFIELD 0: Captain Andrew Irving netted a pair of power play goals and sophomore defenseman Nick Albano had three assists as Beverly (17-1-1) had its ninth shutout of the season. Sophomore center Ted Leathersich also scored for the Panthers (who were playing for the third straight nigth and fourth game in five days), while classmate Tim Biarelli faced seven shots for his North Shore-leading seventh shutout. Jake Straw, Ryan Santo and Graham Doherty also had assists for the Orange-and-Black.

Marblehead 7, Haverhill 0: The Headers (17-4) won the Gulazian Division championship at the Newburyport Bank Classic in convincing fashion as seniors Trip Franzese and captain Ian Maag each pocketed two goals and an assist. Myles Barry stopped 19 shots for the shutout; he and fellow netminder Harrison Young shared tournament MVP honors. Junior captain Tom Koopman also had a big game with a goal and three assists, pushing his points total for the season to a team-leading 40. Erik Powers and Owen Picariello were the other goal scorers for Marblehead.
