C-C Oust Tide From MIAA Tourney

By Lorenzo Recupero

For the second consecutive season, the Crimson Tide were dropped from the MIAA Division 1 State Tournament at the hands of Concord-Carlisle High School.

The 2-1 preliminary round loss Friday at Concord ended a strong season for longtime head coach Stacy Poste-Schiavo and the Lady Tide, who ended the year 15-5 overall and Greater Boston League Co-Champions.

C-C outlasted the Tide, 8-6, in last year’s Div.1 North Sectional as well.

“This was a tough one because defensively our girls played amazing. Offensively, we just could not get the hits,” said Poste-Schiavo on the stinging loss.

The Tide had a chance late in the game to tie when Bryanna Mason reached first on a 2-out single in the 7th inning but could not muster more hits to bring her round to score.

A View From The Sideline

By Lorenzo Recupero

Legendary former Everett High School Head Coach John DiBiaso has coached-up many great athletes during his numerous super bowl victories at the helm for the Crimson Tide.

In his final act as head coach at EHS, he helped lead newly-drafted NFL athletes Lewis Cine and Isaiah Likely to back-to-back state championships as teammates in 2016 and 2017.

That’s why watching the duo get picked in the NFL’s 2022 draft class is no surprise to DiBiaso.

“Cine is extremely gifted,” said DiBiaso, who recalled a conversation with Boston Herald reporter Danny Ventura during Cine’s freshman year at EHS in which he declared Cine had a chance to make it to the NFL. “It got a few laughs at the time, but I saw [greatness] then,” said Dibiaso. “Cine is extremely fast, with cat-like reflexes,” he said.

Isaiah Likely garnered equal praise from his former coach.

“He has tremendous potential,” said DiBiaso. “He has such great hands. I don’t think I ever saw him drop a pass, not in practice or in a game,” said Dibs while likening Likely’s skillset to that of another EHS alum turned NFL star, Dan Ross, who was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals.
