D-III Girls’ Tennis

No. 2 Kearsarge 6, No. 10 Conant 3

Key players: Kearsarge – Madelin Prak, Kelsey Kane, Megan Lizotte, Kira Guantt, Amber Houle

Highlights:The Cougars defeated the Orioles to advance to the Division III semifinals. Kearsarge will host No. 3 Prospect Mountain on Tuesday.

Coach’s quote: “Conant’s No. 1 is unstoppable, so we knew it meant we had to win in the meat of the lineup, if possible. Missing our No. 2 due to injury, the team rose to the occasion and proved every ounce of their worth. I’m constantly amazed at what they accomplish together. On to the next one.” – Kearsarge’s Jay Stadler

Records: Kearsarge 13-2; Conant  8-8

D-II Girls’ Tennis

Highlights: The Falcons’ season came to an end in the quarterfinals at the rackets of D-II’s top team.

Coach’s quote: “We had a good season and improved on our first match against Oyster River, earning a second point. We are excited to have our top three (all sophomores) back next year.” – Bow’s Steve Langevin

Records: Oyster River 15-0; Bow 9-7


Belmont 17, Hopkinton 2

Key players: Belmont – Liam Waldron (win, 1.1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 0 R, 2 K; 3-for-5, triple, 2 doubles, 3 runs, 4 RBI), Wyatt Divers (save, 5.2 IP, 6 H, 4 BB, 2 R, 4 K), Jaxson Embree (3-for-5, triple, 2 stolen bases, 2 runs, 2 RBI), Anakin Underhill (double, 3 hits, stolen base, 3 runs, 2 RBI), Alejandro Jimenez Gonzalez (2-for-2, double, stolen base, run); Hopkinton – Cody Charron (2-for-4, run), Mike Pantano (1-for-2, 2 walks, run), Tyler Czarkowski (3-for-4, triple, 2 RBI; 3 assists from 3B)

Highlights: Belmont scored five runs in the first inning, three in the second, and one each in the third and fourth, and seven in the seven with two outs. The Raiders banged out 18 hits and limited defensive miscues. The highlight of the game came when Alejandro Jiminez Gonzalez got the offense going with a double, his first varsity hit, with two outs in the seventh after a lack luster 2.2 innings. Once he got the hit the bats came alive to the tune of 7 runs, capped off with a Jiminez-Gonzalez single in the same inning. Czarkowski’s 2-run triple in the fifth provided Hopkinton’s only runs.

Coaches’ quote’s “It was a good day and nice to get a boatload of hits and runs just before our season ends. We hope to be hitting the playoffs in stride, as we know we’ll have our hands full as we play the top teams in the division.” – Belmont’s Matt LeBlanc

“I am very pleased of how we battled as a team, getting at least one runner on base every inning except for the sixth. Unfortunately, we stranded 10 runners on base, including with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh. But more importantly, I’m very proud of how well Drew (Dumont) played for us today in his senior game to end his high school playing career. He should be extremely proud of himself with how he played in Hawks green and white for the last time.” – Hopkinton’s Kevin Hill

Records: Belmont 10-5; Hopkinton 1-15

Highlights: The Giants played excellent defense and killed off a 2-minute penalty committed by goalie Brayden Murphy. Backup goalie Trenton Eldridge came off the bench cold and didn’t allow a single goal. 

Coach’s quote: “It wasn’t the prettiest day of lacrosse, we have some things we have to clean up before our playoff game, but I will take it. The boys played hard today and pulled out a victory to get us to the playoffs and that’s what counts.” – Bishop Brady’s Frank Lamparelli

Highlights: Leuci and Norton played well on the draw and circle, while Ava Phibrook, Payne, Branch and Beaujouan grubbed for a lot of ground balls.

Coach’s quote: “It was a hard-fought game from start to finish. Neither team was about to give in to the other. But it was Concord’s senior night game and they played their hearts out, making some big defensive stops when they had to, and moving the ball through the midfield with precise passing. It was a total team effort and a great way to finish the season.” – Concord’s Terry Anderson – 

Records: Concord 4-13; Salem 2-15
