Peabody High Winter Sports Capsules 2012-13



Last season: 7-13

Head coach: Jane Heil (32nd year)

Team captains: Alex Lomasney, Jr. G; Carolyn Scacchi, Jr. F/C.

Other key returnees: Amanda Matthews, Jr. F; Olivia Summitt, Jr. F.

It’ll be a great season if: “We find the guards to compliment the 12 players and if take advantage of our height and our speed.”


Last season: 6-2

Head coach: Maureen Shea (2nd year)

Team captains: Pat Jwanowski, Sr., diver, backstroke; Jason Margossian, Sr., breaststroke, Zack Melville, Sr., butterfly; Christine Shea, Jr., breaststroke, IM

Other key returnees: Alex Guay, Sr., freestyle; Caroline Hassan, Sr., butterfly; Paige Hayward, Fr., diver; Meghan Lurvey, Soph., freestyle; Corey Pierce, Sr., diver

It’ll be a great season if: The Tanners graduated a lot of seniors, so it figures to be a building year. But coach Shea says the team will battle in every meet and could surprise.


Last season: 7-0 (NEC and league meet champions)

Head coach: Fernando Braz (14th year)

Key returnees: Tommy Drover, Sr., 600/1000/Relays; Justin Butler, Sr., High Jump/Relay; Chris Cennami, Sr., Sprints/Relay

It’ll be a great season if: “The coaches and athletes can develop an emotional and efficient rhythm,” Braz said. “We have a good turnout, but inexperience is a glaring concern because we graduated the top two individuals in eight of the 10 events in the NEC last year. We are thin in experience and depth, but we look forward to the challenges presented in NEC competition. We can’t replace what we lost, but it is our responsibility to develop and be competitive.”


Last season: 6-1

Head coach: Joe Rocha (14th year)

Team captains: Joanne Frangias, Sr., Middle Distance; Pam Zabala, Sr., Shot Put; Lauren Zaimes, Sr., Shot Put; Alex Butler, Sr., Middle Distance; Catarina Rocha, Sr., Distance

Other key returnees: Heather MacLean, Sr., Middle Distance; Hayley Dowd, Sr., Sprints; Lauren Barrett, Soph., Distance; Sam Allen, Jr., Distance; Sabrina Rizzo, Sr., Sprints; Sabrina DeAngelo, Soph., Hurdles
