Riding a 2-game win streak, the Lady Tide are above .500 for the first time this season.
With shutout wins over Malden (16-0) and Chelsea (15-0), they’re now sitting at 3-2 ahead of the GBL’s inter-league tournament scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Revere.
The Everett bats and pitchers have heated up during the win streak, posting 31 runs and allowing none during the frame. In the June 2 in over Malden, Celeste Fuccillo led the way with 7 K’s over five innings and in the June 3 win over Chelsea sophomore Kristi Skane provided 4 innings of relief that included 10 K’s.
The Crimson Tide took care of Lynn Classical Friday, 42-12, wrapping up the abbreviated 2020- 2021 season undefeated.
In the end, a three-game season just meant three more wins for Everett High School football.
With all three victories this season coming against Greater Boston League opponents, Everett could be crowned league champions, but head coach Robert DiLoreto doesn’t believe it’s necessary.
“I honestly don’t think there needs to be a league champion in a season like this,” said DiLoreto, who expressed his joy of winning and said being a part of Everett football is a more meaningful reward for both student-athletes and coaches alike than getting a banner.
The Crimson Tide crushed Revere High School, 43-6, in the last home game of the season at Veterans Memorial Stadium Friday.
It was a special night for 12 seniors including Josaiah Stewart, Samy Lamothe, Brandon Gibbs, Tyrese Baptiste, Tyler David, Egan Gouveia, Ali Fountain, David Matthias, Brendon Previlon, Jasheem Rivera, Donrae Richardson, and RadJiwa Norestant who were cheered on by family, friends, and teammates as they donned Everett crimson for the last time.
First-year head coach Robert DiLoreto said they exemplify the strength of Crimson Tide football.
“All 12 of our seniors have been outstanding leaders,” said DiLoreto. “They have committed themselves to working hard and buying into the team mentality. I am so proud. It has been a pleasure to coach each of them,” he said.
Winter Sports at Everett Public Schools will remain on freeze until further notice, with no formal decision being made to allow school sports to resume in the city as of Tuesday night.
In December the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and the Everett Public Schools administration, including coaches agreed to allow Winter Sports to commence at Everett High School given a strict schedule and modified rules be implemented but a last-second blocking from the City prevented it from happening due to concerns about rising Covid-19 numbers.
If the City of Everett authorizes HS sports to continue, a 10-game basketball season could start the week of January 18 but it would come at the cost of hyper-modified gameplay and an NBA bubble-like schedule.
