Everett HS Sports Roundup

By Lorenzo Recupero

Boys’ Tennis – First year head coach Steve Gallagher, a 2007 EHS grad, has yet to see his team pick up a win so far this spring. The Tide currently sit at 0-13, but have four more matches still before the end of the season. Coach Gallagher was quick to insert that his team’s overall record, though, is not an indication of the team’s effort and progress. “We’ve actually had a good year, but we play in a really tough conference (Northeastern Conference)” Said Gallagher. “The kids are having fun and getting better with each match. They are determined to play well right now, and the hope is we can carry the development into next year,” said Gallagher. The team will be back in action Wednesday (5/22 @ 4PM) at Medford HS, Thursday (5/23 @ 4PM) at Somerville HS, and finally at Peabody HS (5/29 @ 4PM) to close the season.

Following back-to-back losses to Revere and Lynn Classical, the Crimson Tide are back on track after snapping the losing streak with a convincing, 11-5, victory over Somerville Monday afternoon at Glendale Park.

Led by senior pitcher Jared Corbett, who picked up his first W of the year, the Crimson Tide knocked-off their league rival for the second time of the season.

Somerville’s pitchers never got their footing and the Crimson Tide (4-7) batters took advantage of it, providing the cushion needed with a 7 run first inning. The bullpen held up the rest of the way. Continue reading “Crimson Tide Baseball Snaps Skid, Tops Somerville”

The Lady Tide are rolling, putting together the best start in recent memory for head coach Stacy Schiavo and doing it in total team fashion. The team’s most recent triumph, a 15-2 trouncing of Malden High School.

“This is the best start we have had in a longtime, yes,” said Schiavo, a 20-plus year veteran of the head coaching position for Everett High softball. “The girls being friends, getting along and really wanting to go further in the tournament has been what I think has made them click. They really seem to want to make an impact. We have a great core of experienced players that have been mentoring some of the newer players,” said Schiavo, who only lost two starters from last year’s team.

But with 12 games remaining in the regular season, Schiavo is not ready to say her team has reached their full potential.
