On the night of Feb. 1, there were 11 teams in boys and girls basketball and boys and girls hockey we went into action with an unblemished record.
While none of those teams lost that night, only three made it to the end of the season with the undefeated record intact, and only four of those teams went on to win their respective division. Here’s a look at how it all shook out. Read the rest of this entry »
They didn’t win a high school boys basketball title this season, but Merrimack’s Eric Gendron and Manchester Central’s Troy Pelletier took home some hardware.
Meghan Green added to her list of accolades this week, as the Bishop Guertin High School senior was named Miss New Hampshire Basketball and the Division I Player of the Year.
Trinity held on late to defeat Bishop Guertin and win the Division I boys basketball championship 50-46 on March 16, 2013.
Pembroke finished the season 22-0, beating Souhegan 49-41 in the championship game on March 16, 2013.
The high school boys and girls hockey teams from Manchester Central, Merrimack, Berlin and Lebanon may have come up short of a championship, but each one got a bit of a consolation.
All four teams featured their respective division’s Player of the Year, as selected by the New Hampshire High School Hockey Coaches Association.
DURHAM – For Carmen Giampetruzzi, Saturday’s Division I championship game felt like a long time coming.
As a freshman two years ago, Giampetruzzi and his Trinity High School boys basketball teammates lost in the final to Bishop Guertin. Last season, the Pioneers were the No. 1 seed, but lost in double overtime to Manchester Central in the semifinals.
DURHAM – Matt Alosa was waiting for the right time to turn on the press.
When his No. 1 Pembroke Academy boys basketball team had done so in the first half of Saturday’s Division II championship game, No. 7 Souhegan picked it apart.
DURHAM – Brandon Len has gone crashing through the lane too many times to count.
Sometimes, it means taking a hard foul and ending up on the floor, but when Len was knocked down early in No. 7 Souhegan High School’s Division II boys basketball semifinal game Wednesday against No. 3 Lebanon, it looked like the senior was finally down for the count.
Steven Toscano scored 19 points and Jeff Lunn had a double double to help lead the Bishop Guertin High School boys basketball team to a 55-53 win Tuesday over Spaulding in the Division I semifinals.
