Congrats to Dan Lombardo and Christian Romero - EL's varsity fall baseball all stars.
The boys and girls cross country teams beat Cathedral today and lost to Longmeadow. Abby Laughlin won the girls race, and Jack Moynihan came in 4th for the boys. Coach Budd said this about the girls race: "The best effort yet this season for the Lady Spartans! Hammer (Abby L) beat a strong Longmeadow field today finishing in 20:14. This could be one of the five or six fastest times by an EL runner. Abbycus (Abby R) also ran an astounding 20:53 to secure 4th overall."
Coach Corbett said, "Tough loss to a solid Longmeaadow team, but our fourth and fifth runners, Ricky Holden and Colin Sirard secured our victory over Cathedral."
The EL Spartans beat Agawam today handily at Robinson State Park. Coach Corbett: "Excellent team effort today. "...without out top two runners. The Manace group of Hampton, Ricky, Sirard, Holeman, Danny, and Giacomo helped the team secure a victory."
The EL Spartan girls volleyball team won an exciting game today at home 3-1. We will have photos for you in the next day or so...it appears the photographer's Mac is too full to import several hundred new photos. More to follow!
Jared Mack pitched 3 scoreless innings and had 2 hits and 2 RBIs to lead the Spartans in a 4-3 win over Agawam SBC in varsity fall baseball today. Jared struck out 4 batters and walked only 1. He got 3 outs in the 4th inning with 6 pitches.
Here are some other highlights:
CHICOPEE MEMORIAL PARK
Coach Budd had this to say about the girls XC performance today:
"In an all around tough day for the Ladyspartans, Meghann Byrne pulled ahead of a Chicopee runner to secure 22nd place in a quad meet at Chicopee State Park.
Though EL lost to Minnechaug (which sported 70 runners, Firestar's finish helped the team defeat Chicopee Comp and served as the tie-breaker against one of the teams that denied us a trophy at the Duck Races (Chicopee).
The value of the 6th runner!"
The Ladyspartans have moved to 4-2 on the season.
"Next up, however is a very capable Agawam team led by the sensational Megan Dustin who destroyed our course record the other day. Our challenge is to close the gap on her on her very challenging 5k course at Robinson State Park."
