Getting Revved Up For Fall Sports!

Leader Herald Staff

Few cities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are more renowned for their high school sports programs than Everett.

Coming off the heels of a surprising 2022, the Tide hopes to ramp things up a bit with the kickoff
of their 2022-2023 fall sports season this Saturday at 10AM at Sacramone Park.

At that event there will be free lunch and slush for all athletes and families. There will
also be a punt, pass, and kick contest, face painting, corn hole, yard pong and various
other assorted games.

At the center of the day will be a kickball contest between first responders and Tide athletes. Contestants must be 8+ to play and can sign up at the main hut.

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.

Crimson Tide Basketball Continuing Ascent

Everett Crimson Tide boys’ basketball has a strong core of young talent powering its rise this season.

At 13-2 overall with only seven games remaining, riding a 9-game win streak, the Tide find themselves undefeated at home (6-0) and in the GBL (11-0).

Within the team’s successful mix of talent are guys like second-year player David De Souza.

The junior guard has been a coaches dream in a so far successful season for the Tide.

“[De Souza] was a rotational player for us in the shortened season last year. Started the year playing limited minutes but minutes began to increase once we saw what he brought to the defensive end. Something clicked with him,” said EHS Head Coach Stanley Chamblain. “David built off last season and emerged into our defensive specialist guy we can count on night in and night out. He just plays so tough and hard all the time and with an edge too. He sets the tone for us just off his energy alone. You’ll look at the box score and his name may not pop out at you, but if you’re at the game or manage to catch it on livestream, you’ll immediately realize how vital he is to our team success,” said Chamblain of his high-energy guard.
