Led by stellar hitting and a potent mixture of renewed chemistry and focus, the Crimson Tide softball team is heading back to the postseason for the first time in three years.
With a convincing, 20-3, decision over Mount Alvernia Monday, the Crimson Tide earned their 10th win of the season, just enough to clinch an MIAA tournament berth with three more games still remaining on the schedule.
The win not only promises a playoff spot, but offers the team a chance to add to their win total that’s already eclipsed their 8-12 records each of the past two years.
Former Crimson Tide star as been an assistant for the last five years
Everett High School didn’t need to look any further than its bench to nd its next boys basketball coach, tapping assis- tant coach and former Crimson Tide standout Stanley Cham- blain to replace John DiBiaso.
Flanked by his wife, Marjani, and his mother, Margarette, and surrounded by members of the EHS athletic department, Chamblain thanked the administration for “allowing me to take over a prestigious program” and vowed to “give my 110 percent.” In making the announcement, Principal Erick Naumann quoted legendary UCLA head coach John Wooden in pointing out that Chamblain has the ability to “give correction without causing resentment.”
Chamblain played for EHS from 2000-2003 (serving as captain as a senior) before playing at Hesser College and Keene State in New Hampshire. He nished his undergraduate work at Lesley University be- fore receiving a master’s degree from Cambridge College. He is a guidance counselor at EHS and has been a Crimson Tide assistant for the past FIve years.
In any competition–especially competitive sports–there’s a saying oft heard around the defeated: ‘you can’t win em’ all’. Although that rings true, experience will teach ‘you can’t lose em all’ either.
The up-and-coming Everett High School Lacrosse team learned that sweet lesson on May 3rd as they defeated Salem, 14-12, to earn the program’s first-ever varsity victory.
Following consecutive changes to the schedule due to rainouts last week, the Lady Tide were finally able to hit the playing field on Saturday, but by then their bats had already gone cold in a 9-1 loss to Danvers.
The defeat drops the girls to 3-5 overall on the season ahead of their eighth game of the year against Medford.
