Roberts named new Jets hockey coach

Mike Roberts is the new head coach of the Lynn Jets hockey team. 

By MIKE ALONGI 

LYNN — Once again, the Lynn public high school hockey team that combines Classical, Tech and English has dipped into its past — both from almost 20 years ago and recently — to fill the position as head coach.

Thursday, Mike Roberts was announced as the new head coach of the Lynn Jets. He has a long history with Lynn high school sports, going to back to the time he played and up until last year, when he served as an assistant for former coach Joe Conlon.

“I feel that it’s unfortunate to see Joe part ways,” said Roberts, regarding Conlon’s announcement earlier this spring that he was stepping down as coach. “But at the same time, I’ve always wanted to be a head coach.”
Roberts was a three-sport athlete at English, playing on the school’s football, hockey and baseball teams. Among the coaches the 1999 graduate played for were Ron Bennett, Gary Molea, Matt Poska and Bob Roland.

“One of the main reasons I always wanted to coach is that I want to give back,” Roberts said. “In my senior year, I always looked to coach Molea for guidance. You’re at a stage in your life when you’re not sure about some of the choices you’re about to make. People like him always helped make sense out of it to me.

“You never forget that stuff,” Roberts said. “You take that with you for the rest of your life. Giving back to the younger generation is what it’s all about.”

He knows he faces some challenges. The Jets graduated Northeastern Conference MVP goalie Jack Stafford in the spring, which means the hunt is on for his replacement in net.

“That’s definitely a priority,” he said. “We have a challenge with the goalie situation. But Kenny Perez, from where he started to the end of the season, was a positive. Hopefully we can get him into some clinics and get him going in a positive direction.”
Roberts said that he’ll know a lot more during the summer league in Peabody, which begins July 31.

Roberts said the luxury of having Stafford between the pipes allowed the Jets to play a more defensive-oriented style — something they may have to modify next season.

“I think every team is different,” he said. “Everybody wants to be offensive-minded, and score a lot of goals. But sometimes, the cast you have won’t allow you to do that.

“We’ve been playing more of a defensive style,” he said. “We could lean on the defense and force them outside, and keep games real tight.

“We may have to look to a more offensive approach,” he said. “I think we’re going to have to put up a lot more goals to win. I like the forwards to carry a little more than to dump and chase.”

Both principals Gene Constantino of Classical and Tom Strangie of English heartily endorse the hire.

“We’re happy to have him on board,” said Strangie. “He tutored well with Joe Conlon, and I’m sure he’ll fill those shoes.

“I was his vice principal when he was a student at English High,” said Strangie. “He was a great player. It’s always good to have one of our own giving back to the school.”

“He’s been in the program,” said Constantino. “He knows the kids … knows the players. He’s a good family man. I was impressed with his interview.

“I think he has the ability to maintain the program the Joe put in place, and hopefully enhance it to the next level. I hope he does well.”

Fenwick’s Buckwell coached with true dedication

COURTESY PHOTO FROM GATELY FUNERAL HOME
Fenwick swim coach Cara Linehan Buckwell died last week at the age of 34.  

By STEVE KRAUSE 

Dave Woods remembers when Cara Linehan Buckwell received Coach of the Year honors from the Boston Globe.

“She was so humbled,” said Woods, the athletic director at Bishop Fenwick High School in Peabody. “We gathered the team around, and we made the announcement in front of everyone. She was embarrassed. Her face got all red. She was so shocked.”

The fact that his swimming coach was stunned at being recognized was no shock to Woods, however. As far as he was concerned, she was everything a coach ought to be — and that all athletic directors hope they can get.

“She’d do things that a lot of people don’t notice,” said Woods. “Swimming’s kind of a tough sport to coach, because we don’t have a pool. So now you have to go out and schedule pool times. They’d practice at 5:30 in the morning. Cara took care of all of that. From an AD’s point of view, she was something you’d want in every coach.”

Woods said that beyond her expertise as a coach in general, and in swimming in particular, “she was just a great person.

“She cared about the kids,” Woods said. “And that’s something you can’t teach coaches. Either they have it or they don’t, and she definitely had it.”

Woods remembers one time when Buckwell came up to him, worried about one of her swimmers.

“She told me that the girl hadn’t been herself at practice, and that she was worried,” Woods said. “She said she was going to talk to the girl’s guidance counselor, but in the meantime, asked if I’d watch out for her.” 

Woods said Buckwell hadn’t been feeling well as the winter sports season came to an end. A coach at the school since Woods became athletic director a decade ago, Buckwell had her first child 10 months ago, and therefore decided to sit the year out as a coach, even though she helped out and was still around the program.

“She wasn’t feeling well sometime around March,” said Woods, “and I think originally, they thought she had pneumonia, and she was being treated for it.”

However, it wasn’t pneumonia. It was lung cancer. Even though she’d been an athlete, swimmer, marathon runner who took care of her body, she was diagnosed with cancer.

“A lot of people didn’t know she was sick, including me,” Woods said. “When I heard, I was literally speechless.

“When she had cancer, I don’t think that was ever made public, except for people who were really close with her,” Woods said.

Buckwell died a week ago Tuesday at the age of 34. She was the second sibling in her family to die, as her younger sister, Laura Linehan, who died at age 20 from liver disease. She ran the Boston Marathon to help raise awareness of the plight of patients waiting for liver transplants.

“Not one bit of this makes sense to me,” said Woods, whose own daughter, Cassidy, was diagnosed with leukemia when she was a small child. Cassidy is now 18 and a graduate of Bishop Fenwick. She will be going to college in the fall to major in pediatric oncology.

“People say there’s a plan, or whatever, but I don’t understand it,” Woods said. “I don’t see it.”

Peabody gears up for Section 4 Tournament

FILE PHOTO
The Peabody all-stars celebrate a run in their 4-3 win over Peabody West. 

By HAROLD RIVERA 

When the Peabody all-stars take the diamond at Wyoma Little League’s Reinfuss Field for Wednesday night’s Massachusetts Section 4 Little League tournament game against Gloucester, they’ll have a tough task on their hands in seeking a win. Gloucester carries a talented offense that’s more than capable of scoring runs, but the challenge of limiting those bats is one that Peabody’s looking forward to.

“Gloucester has a good hitting team,” Peabody coach Justin Powers said. “The good thing is that a lot of kids play AAU together and know each other from different leagues. You always have somewhat of an idea from different people. They’re a big team. It’s going to take a strong effort to take those guys down.”

Peabody clinched its spot in the Section 4 tournament with a 4-3 win over Peabody West in the District 16 final. Although Peabody matched up against a tough slate of opponents in District 16, the all-stars weren’t fazed by the task. Peabody finished the District 16 tournament undefeated.

Jumping out to early leads and dominating all facets of the game have been the two keys to Peabody’s success.

“We get off to pretty good starts and that gives us our confidence,” Powers said. “Overall, we’ve done a good job of throwing strikes and making plays behind our pitchers. We’ve played all three facets of the game pretty well.”

It also helps that playing against talented teams in District 16 has given Peabody a good idea of what it’ll face moving forward. The variety of pitchers and batters that Peabody matched up against has prepared the all-stars for all possibilities.

“The kids have seen a lot of different styles of pitchers and batters,” Powers said. “We’ve gone up against some tough lineups. Our team has seen a little bit of everything. They’ve been through a lot of different styles of games. Hopefully we’re ready for anything.”

Peabody will look to maintain a gameplan similar to the one that worked throughout the district round. Powers has preached the importance of jumping out to a quick lead, holding down the fort in the middle innings and finishing on a high note.

“We got through District 16 playing the same way every game,” Powers said. “We start fast, grind through the middle innings and finish strong. That’s what we preach.

“We’re tough to pitch to and we can run the bases,” Powers added. “Our defense has been great. Everything the other team hits ends up in our gloves. If we keep doing that, we’ll be okay.”

The one area Powers would like to see his team improve on is reducing the amount of runners it leaves on the bases.

“The one thing we need to work on is we need to stop stranding baserunners,” Powers said. “The left on base number is a little too high to get by against better teams.”

Powers also noted that he and his players have been appreciate of the support they’ve received from their fans. Peabody has drawn strong crowds in its games, a benefit that has served to fuel the players on the team.

“The last game we played against Peabody West, that was some atmosphere,” Powers said. “You looked out and you have the whole Peabody West crowd bouncing up and down when they tied the game. When we scored the game-winner it was the exact opposite, all our fans were going bananas. That fuels the kids. The whole Peabody Little League community has come out and supported us and the kids definitely appreciate it.”

First pitch for Wednesday’s game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Peabody then clashes against Andover National and Reading on Thursday and Friday night, respectively. All games are at Wyoma.

Peabody wins intracity battle, and the District 16 LL title

By ANNE MARIE TOBIN

LYNN — Two minutes.  That’s all it took to transform Saturday’s District 16 final between Peabody and Peabody Western, won by Peabody 4-3 in seven innings at Pine Hill’s Gallagher Park, into one that will be remembered for a very long time.

Peabody will now play in the Massachusetts Section 4 tournament, beginning Wednesday at Wyoma’s Reinfuss Field, where it’ll face former District 15 rival Gloucester at 7:30. Games against Andover National (Thursday, 7:30) and Reading (Friday, 7:30) will follow.

The two top teams will play Saturday at 6:30. All the games are at Wyoma.

Through five innings Saturday, Peabody had a stranglehold over West, leading 3-0, thanks to a dominant effort from Peabody starter Justin Powers, who held West to just three baserunners, only one of whom made it past first base, and timely hitting from Carson Browne (leadoff home run) and pinch hitter Matt Richards (RBI single).

With one out in the top of the sixth and West starter Zach Fisher on first (fielder’s choice), Powers struck out the dangerous Giovanni Guglielmo, and the Peabody faithful was feeling it, it being its first district championship since 1997.

West, however, was also feeling it.

Down to its last out, 11-year-old Nick Villano blasted a 2-run homer over the fence in right and, suddenly, West had new life trailing by just one run, 3-2. Tyler Fawcett followed, smashing a 1-0 fastball over the left field fence to tie the game at 3-3. Villano’s homer was the third in his last three games.

After Fisher struck out Peabody’s top of the order in the bottom of the inning it was on to the seventh, and what a seventh it turned out to be.

With one out and runners at first and third, Powers reached his pitch count.  Browne came on in relief and promptly walked Thomas Fabbo to load the bases for Fisher. Browne caught him looking, then got out of the jam, unscathed, when shortstop Roberts Galvis fielded a grounder and stepped on second for the force.

In the bottom of the frame, Powers reached on an infield error and got to second on a passed ball. Daniel Zizza walked and both runners advanced a base on a wild pitch. With Ryan Brunet at the plate, Powers took off for home on a wild pitch, sliding in safely after the ball took a fortuitous bounce off home plate.

“I think he just saw the ball get away and went for it, he wasn’t going to wait for another chance,” said manager Justin Powers. “I was all ready to take the blame. I called terrible pitches in that last inning (sixth).  Credit to their guys (Villano and Fawcett), they hit ‘em but the guys bailed me out today.  Somebody had to win and somebody had to lose, and I’m glad it was our team that won. “We have talked all year long about how you need to win games in different ways, and today we had some big at-bats from a lot of different hitters.”

Peabody got off to a slow start.  With one out, Powers plunked Fisher, who advanced to second on Guglielmo’s single. Villano hit a rocket that deflected off Powers right to second baseman Danny Barrett, who flicked it back-handed to Galvis to get Guglielmo on the force and fired to first for the inning-ending double play.

Browne led off the bottom of the inning and he sliced a shot over the fence in right to stake Peabody to a 1-0 lead.  It stayed that way until the fourth when Peabody scratched out two more runs to lead 3-0.

With one out, pinch hitter Ryan Rice singled up the middle. Barrett re-entered as a pinch runner and got to second on a wild pitch. Brunet walked and pinch hitter Cam Connolly loaded the bases with a clutch single to left.  A wild pitch brought Barrett home with Connolly and Brunet advancing to second and third, respectively. With first base open, Browne was intentionally walked.  Next up was Galvis, who made West pay with an RBI single that scored Brunet and made it a 3-0 game.

Peabody had a chance to put the game out of reach in the fifth and had the bases loaded with one out, but Guglielmo, who had relieved Fisher after Fisher reached his pitch count earlier in the inning, regrouped and struck out the final two batters to escape the jam and set up West’s wild and dramatic sixth inning.

“We felt that if we won this game we would have carried the momentum into the next game. That kind of energy can get the kids to run through a wall,” said West manager Steve Porcella. “We had our chances in the top of the seventh we just couldn’t push a run through. We were right there I would have loved it , but that’s the kind of ride these kids will never forget.   Too bad it had to end the way it did, but we’re happy it’s another Peabody team that ended up winning, although it will be tough in school when they rub it in, but we’ll come back and get ‘em next year.”

In 6 ⅓ innings, Powers allowed three earned runs on four hits with 10 strikeouts, while Browne walked one, struck out one and allowed one hit in two-thirds of an inning.

Fisher gave up two earned runs in four innings on five hits and struck out nine, while Guglielmo pitched three innings of no-hit ball and struck out six.

Amazingly, neither team committed an error.

Bettencourt earns Bucknell Hall of Fame honor

FILE PHOTO
Peabody native and Endicott men’s basketball coach Kevin Bettencourt will be officially inducted into the Bucknell Athletics Hall of Fame in November. 

By HAROLD RIVERA

Peabody native Kevin Bettencourt has fond memories of his days as a star guard on the Division I Bucknell basketball team.

A two-year captain, Bettencourt helped lead the Bison to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2005 and 2006. In the 2005 tournament Bucknell upset Kansas with a first round victory, the program’s first ever NCAA Tournament win.

In four seasons with the Bison, 2003-2006, Bettencourt scored 1,577 points, which ranks fifth in program history. He started all 123 games in his four years and set Bucknell records for most three-pointers in a game and career.

For his efforts and memorable performances in his days wearing the Bison uniform, Bettencourt was chosen as one of six inductees of the Bucknell Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2017. Joining him are two of his former teammates in Charles Lee and Chris McNaughton.

“I was really excited about it,” Bettencourt, who now coaches the men’s basketball team at Endicott College in Beverly, said. “It wasn’t totally expected. I was thrilled. One of the best parts was getting in the same weekend as two of my teammates. I’m looking forward to seeing my teammates again and spending a weekend with them on campus.”

The six inductees will be honored at a ceremony on Nov. 3, when they’ll be officially inducted.

“It’s a nice testament to my career there,” Bettencourt, a father of three, said. “I was really proud of what I was able to accomplish. It’ll be nice to bring my wife and kids and introduce them to some of the people that were special in my life there. It’s a good reward all because of being part of special groups. It’ll be nice to be remembered.”

Some of Bettencourt’s fondest memories at Bucknell include the upset victory over Kansas. Bettencourt, a junior at the time, scored 19 points and drained five three-pointers in Bucknell’s win.

“The win over Kansas, that’s the kind of moment that put us on the map,” Bettencourt said. “My senior year we got back to the NCAA Tournament and won a game again. We won 27 games and finished the season ranked. Those are some of my basketball memories, we achieved some things that hadn’t been accomplished yet at Bucknell.”

Aside from team wins and personal accolades, Bettencourt, who graduated from Bucknell in 2006, also remembers the bonds and friendships he established while with the Bison.

“When I think back to my time at Bucknell sometimes I don’t even think of the basketball games,” Bettencourt said. “I had such great friends and teammates, and that’s what I think about.”

“My friends and teammates, it was a special group of guys,” Bettencourt said. “That’s kind of what led me into coaching. I’m hoping to bring that experience to others now.”

The memorable bonds he created throughout his career as a player taught Bettencourt a valuable lesson about the importance of team chemistry. That’s a lesson he currently finds himself preaching to his players at Endicott.

“I try to tell them not to measure their careers totally on wins and losses,” Bettencourt said. “My favorite memories at Bucknell come from friendships. The chemistry I was able to form with my teammates led to our success. I don’t know if my personal stats gets me in the hall of fame but achieving things that hadn’t been reached before, that’s what gets me in there. That’s what I try to tell my players.”

Bettencourt’s tenure at Endicott began in 2014. He has led the program to three consecutive NCAA Division III Tournament appearances. This past season saw the Gulls reach the Sweet 16 round, marking it as the most successful year in the program’s history.

“I have no complaints, it’s been a fun ride,” Bettencourt said. “This past season at Endicott was amazing. I was fortunate to have great players. It’s great that some of that success has carried over into the summer for me.”

“That’s the thing about sports though, we have another group that’s coming ready to compete next season,” Bettencourt added. “Basketball has been good to me and I’m still enjoying the competition piece of everything.”

When the fall rolls around, Bettencourt will be seeing a familiar face on campus as his cousin, Katie Bettencourt, will serve as Endicott’s new softball coach. A UMass Amherst graduate, Bettencourt was a star right fielder for the school’s softball team. She’ll be the third Endicott softball coach in the program’s history in taking over for former coach Mark Veilleux.

“With me at Endicott, Katie’s been to a lot of our basketball games,” Bettencourt said. “She developed an interest in the job and it’s nice to see her do her own thing. She’s really excited and it’ll be nice to have her in the department.”

Peabody, Lynn Babe Ruth will have to wait

By SCOT COOPER 

LYNN —  The Lynn 14-year old Babe Ruth all-stars knew going into Wednesday night’s playoff game with Peabody that they had to win it to stay alive in the state tournament.

The weather wrecked Lynn’s plans to put Peabody away, however, and the two teams will pick up where they left off Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Fraser Field.

Where the two teams left off was with Peabody’s No. 5 hitter, Anthony Conforti, up at the dish, leading off in the top of the second inning. A couple of blasts of lightning appeared way past the left field fence during the first inning, but when the blasts got a little closer in the second inning, the game was postponed after a 30-minute delay.

“It’s the same situation, no score, top of the second, their guy is up against our ace (Luke Mannion),” Lynn coach Dave Galeazzi said. “Everything’s the same, we’ll pick things up where we left off, our job is still the same, we have to win the game to stay alive, whether we played it tonight, or tomorrow night, which we’re going to do now.”

“I thought that we came out a little tight in the top of the first really, we walked a guy and he made it to third, but we held, and we really settled down, I think, after that first half inning,” the coach added. “We’ll come back out tomorrow night and try to win it and keep going, picking things up right where we left off.”

Mannion walked Peabody’s Ryan Knight with one out in the top of the first. Knight stole second, but was stranded at third when Mannion induced two infield popups.

Peabody sent Alex Gonzalez to the mound and he went right through Lynn’s first three hitters. Gonzalez will now have a full day to prepare for the bottom of the second.

“The situation is the same for us, there’s no ifs, ands or buts for us, if we win, we’re in, and if we lose, we’re out,” Galeazzi said. “So we’ll come out Thursday night and do our best to come out with a win.”

Lynn Babe Ruth vice-president Jeff Earp said he’s excited that the Babe Ruth tournament is in the city. Earp said once again, Lynn is shining in the spotlight with this baseball tournament after Manning Field delivered when it hosted the MIAA soccer and football playoffs.

“When I told one of the coaches that we were moving the games from Bowzer to Fraser he seemed a little disappointed, but then he saw Fraser for the first time and just said, wow this is a professional baseball field,” Earp said. “Being from Lynn we’ve heard all the jokes and the stereotypes over the years, so for people unfamiliar with Lynn to come to see our fields at Bowzer and here at Fraser, they’re amazed, we have top notch facilities. We put about ten thousand dollars into Bowzer to get it ready for this season and I think it shows.”

“We are packed with men’s leagues, Babe Ruth, the junior varsity plays its games there, teams are coming from all over to play here (at Bowzer), the fields are always packed, and I think they’re very impressed with the baseball facilities in Lynn,” Earp said. “It’s a lot of work to get this (Babe Ruth) tournament here, but I think the selection committee likes what it sees with our fields and the way we run things here in Lynn. I’m happy to destroy some stereotypes.”

Born in Swampscott, she was the daughter of the late Michael J. and Edna E. Vernava. She attended St. John’s School in Swampscott and was a graduate of Swampscott High School.

Diane lived in Lynn for four years after her first marriage before moving to Peabody where she spent the remainder of her life. She was the widow of Paul L. Muise, to whom she was married for 32 years. She was also the widow of Richard P. Morse, to whom she was married for 13 years.

She was a communicant of St. Ann’s Church in Peabody. She worked briefly as a bookkeeper for O.G. Poor Lumber Company in Swampscott, and also as a receptionist for Community Opticians in Lynn. When her first child was born, she became a “stay at home mom.” She was a former member of the St. John the Baptist Women’s Club of Swampscott, and also a Girl Scout leader at the South Memorial School in Peabody. In her younger years she was an avid bowler who organized many bowling leagues at Candlepin Lanes in Salem, and also at the Lynnway Lanes in Lynn. In her senior years, she became an avid line dancer who performed for many years at the Topsfield Fair with Corine Prigian and the Starlets. She enjoyed playing cards with her friends, and what she treasured most were times spent with family and friends.

Diane was the mother of the late Debra Larson, who predeceased her in January. She is survived by a devoted daughter, Darlene Shedden and her husband Robert of Seabrook, N.H.; and one son, Richard Morse of Wadsworth, Ohio; her son-in-law, Joseph Larson Sr. of Peabody; three brothers, Frank Vernava and his wife Carol of Wolfeboro, N.H., Robert Vernava and his wife Carole, and Michael Vernava, all of Swampscott; two grandsons, Joseph Larson Jr. and his wife Deborah Rosen of Peabody and Matthew Morse of Ohio; two great-grandchildren, Deanna and Judy Larson; four step-great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She was the grandmother of the late Richard P. Morse III.

Lynn bounces back with win over Revere

Lynn’s Aidan Dowe struck out five batters in five innings of work. 

By HAROLD RIVERA 

LYNN– After a loss to Medford on Sunday, the Lynn 14-year-old all-stars were hungry for a win in Monday’s Babe Ruth State Tournament game against Revere. Aidan Dow cruised on the mound and the Lynn bats exploded for 10 runs in a 10-0 five-inning mercy rule win over Revere at Breed.

“We had a major hiccup on Sunday against Medford,” Lynn coach Dave Galeazzi said. “We walked nine and committed seven errors in the field. The boys came back tonight and did what they had to do. Revere’s a hot and cold team, it’s trick or treat with them.”

Dow allowed just two hits and four walks in his five innings of work, while fanning five Revere batters. He also scored the final run of the evening when he raced home on a wild pitch in the bottom of the fifth to seal the 10-0 win.

“He (Dow) did a great job,” Galeazzi said. “He only allowed two hits. In the two years I’ve coached him in Babe Ruth, that’s the best game I’ve seen him pitch. He was very consistent, he kept his arm up, he pounded the strike zone and his curveball was working. He was on all cylinders.”

After Revere stranded a pair of baserunners in the top of the first, Lynn struck for two runs in the bottom half of the frame. Kyle Durant led off with a double and Kevin Pena followed with a single. Nico Galeazzi brought Durant home with a RBI single for the 1-0 lead. A pop-up from Luke Mannion’s bat dropped, allowing Pena to come home and boost Lynn’s edge to 2-0.

Dow worked around a two-out single in the top of the second to keep Revere off the board.

Jared DeFillipo’s two-out double in the bottom of the second turned out to be the start of a five-run Lynn rally that stretched a 2-0 game into a comfortable 7-0 lead. DeFillipo came home on a throwing error to make it 3-0. A balk allowed Shawn Anderson to score Lynn’s fourth run and a delayed steal saw Durant score to bump Lynn’s lead to 5-0. Nico Galeazzi added a RBI double and later scored on another Revere error to make it 7-0.

“We can always preach things and we try to go that extra step,” Galeazzi said. “We worked two delayed steals to perfection. We work on that stuff a lot in practice and it really paid off. We scored a few runs on that and added a couple hits.”

Lynn cooled down in the bottom halves of the third and fourth innings, but plated three more runs in the fifth. Galeazzi led off the fifth with a single and advanced to third on a failed pickoff attempt. A RBI triple off Mannion’s bat allowed Galeazzi to trot home for the 8-0 lead. Dow followed suit with a RBI triple of his own, scoring Mannion, and raced home on a wild pitch on the ensuing at-bat to seal the 10-0 win.

“We told the kids before the game that we just had to put the ball in play tonight,” Galeazzi said. “We played Revere in Districts and we beat them 12-1. We didn’t really tattoo the ball but we put it on the ground and they made some errors.”

Lynn now turns its attention to Wednesday night’s (8 p.m.) matchup at Breed against Peabody. The last time Lynn and Peabody met, in the District round, it was the latter that took home a 1-0 win.

“We have a friendly, nice rivalry with Peabody,” Galeazzi said. “The last four times we’ve played Peabody, the games have all turned out to be 1-0 games. I expect the same.”

Lynn 13’s
Lynn 7, Newton 2

Lynn 13’s pitchers Christian Moran and Anthony Marino worked together to pitch a combined no-hitter. Moran, the starter, tossed the first five innings. Marino came on in relief and pitched the last two innings. Anthony Mateo notched the bit hit of the night with a bases-clearing double in the third inning. Lynn plated three in the third and added four more runs in the sixth. “It was a big team effort,” Lynn coach Brian O’Connor said. “Everybody earned walks and we grinded it out. We grinded out seven runs.” Lynn now awaits the No. 2 seed from the South for Thursday’s game at Breed.

Peabody breaks through to make District 16 LL final

By SCOT COOPER

SWAMPSCOTT — Two unbeaten District 16 all-star teams squared off Sunday evening in Swampscott, and when it was over, homers were the story of the game in an 8-3 Peabody win over Wyoma.

The win propels Peabody into the district final, where it’ll have to wait until the loser’s bracket teams sort themselves out. The final is scheduled for Thursday, with a second game Friday if needed.

Wyoma, which defeated Lynnfield, 7-5, Saturday to reach Sunday’s winner’s bracket final, is back in action Wednesday against a yet-to-be determined opponent.

Wyoma manager Rick Anderson said that it’s not an ideal situation for his squad, but his players will deal with it and bounce back Wednesday.

“Peabody’s a very good hitting team, and unfortunately we gave them two big hits that led to five runs,” Anderson said. “My guys are a resilient bunch, we won three in a row before this game, now we have to go back out and win three in a row starting Wednesday. We don’t know who we’ll play next, but my guys will be ready.”

Wyoma wasted a leadoff double by Brady Bullock in the top of the first. Peabody hurler Carson Browne struck out two batters and got a groundout, ending the threat. Peabody’s Roberts Galvis singled off of Wyoma’s Brendan Falasca, and Joey Raymond smashed a 2-2 offering over the center field fence to put Peabody up 2-0 after one.

Eli Batista singled in Ryan Burnett, who walked to make it 3-0 after two innings. Wyoma scratched out a run in the top of the third. Bullock doubled again, and this time he came in on a single by Falasca.

Peabody put some distance between itself and Wyoma in the bottom of the third thanks to five stolen bases.

Justin Powers walked, stole second, went to third on a pitch to the backstop, and trotted home on a throwing error. Browne cranked a three-run shot over the left field fence, bringing in Batista and Cam Connolly, who both singled ahead of him, for an 8-1 lead.

Wyoma made it 8-2 when Billy Deveux was plunked by Browne and came all the way around on two wild pitches and an error. In the top of the fifth, Wyoma got as close as it would get when Bullock walked, went to second on an error, and came home on a single by Jack Marks.

Browne went 5-2/3 solid innings for the winners, with Michael Ferguson coming in to get the final out.

Peabody manager Justin Powers said his team has been finding ways to win for the past four games.

“I just got through telling these kids that they’ve done a great job winning these games a bunch of different ways,” Anderson said. “We can play whatever way the other team wants to play, we can hit with you, we can pitch with you, whatever has to be done, these kids do it.”

Anderson said his team would shake this one off and get ready to play the next game.

“We knew coming in that whoever we faced it would be a tough pitcher, and it was tough,” Anderson said. “A couple of bad pitches did us in, and we need move on and get ready for the next game, this is a scrappy bunch of kids and they’ll be ready for whoever we play.”

 

Splits the order of the weekend for Lynn Babe Ruth

By SCOT COOPER

LYNN — Whichever team lost Sunday morning’s game between the 13-year old all-stars from Lynn and Swampscott was going to be eliminated from the Babe Ruth State Tournament.

Lynn survived, battling for seven innings and holding on for a 12-9 win at Breed Middle School’s Clancy Field.

Both teams came into Sunday’s matchup at 0-1, Lynn lost to Arlington, 13-2 Saturday, while Swampscott fell 13-5 to Newton. The frustrating part about Lynn’s loss Saturday was that it snapped a three-game winning streak against Arlington.

Lynn jumped out 2-0 in the top of the first against Swampscott’s Pierce Friedman. Aivan Cabral reached on an error and moved up on a single by Aaron O’Connor. Base hits by Anthony Mateo and Ethaniel Almanderez gave Lynn the lead.

Lynn doubled its lead to 4-0 with two runs in the top of the second. Anthony Marino singled and Ty Wilson walked. Cabral drove Marino home and Wilson scored on a hit by Mateo.

Mateo had a huge day at the plate for Lynn with four hits, a walk and three RBI, and he said the work the team did before the game really paid off.

“We’re a good hitting team, and we didn’t show that in our game Saturday,” the second baseman said. “We came out early today and worked on our hitting with our coaches and it paid off for me and the team.”

Swampscott put one up in the bottom of the second when Friedman knocked home Patrick Carroll. Lynn got that run back in the third, going up 5-1 when Jason Donohue knocked in Nolan Mulcahy.  

Swampscott cut it to a 2-run game with a pair in its half of the third. Dylan Dubiel scored on an error, Jake Taylor singled and scored on a hit by Drew Botta.

Lynn kept the pressure up at the plate and scored two in the top of the fourth. Mateo knocked in Cabral and Almanderez drove in Mateo, putting Lynn up, 7-3. Marino, Christian Moran and Cabral scored in the fifth, once again punch at the plate from Mateo and Almanderez did the trick for Lynn, making it 10-3.

Looking at the bad end of a seven-run deficit, Swampscott scored four in the last of the fifth. Taylor and Botta scored on a long double by Joseph Ford.  Carroll went to third ahead of Ford, and scored on a balk, and Leland Howe singled in Ford, making it 10-7.

Swampscott really made Lynn sweat, scoring two in the sixth. Botta singled and scored on an error, and Carroll scored when Friedman was plunked with the bases loaded, making it 10-9.

Mateo and Almanderez singled in the seventh and both came around when Swampscott pitchers walked four straight batters.  Moran pitched the shutout seventh, and Lynn had a 12-9 win, and life for tonight’s 8 p.m. game with Newton.

“It’s a good thing I’m only 40, because if I was any older. I’d have had a heart attack,” said Lynn manager Brian O’Connor. “That was a close one.

“I know we’re a good hitting team, we’ll hit, we just have to tighten things up in the field.”

“It’s tough, but we battled,” Swampscott manager Fred Dubiel said. “Credit to them, they really battled and we came up a few runs short.”

14-year-olds

Lynn beat Newton, 13-2, Saturday, but fell Sunday to Medford, 8-5.

In the Newton game, which only lasted four innings due to the 10-run rule, Luke Mannion went the distance to get the win.

“He didn’t have his best stuff, but he gutted it out for us,” manager Dave Galeazzi said.

Lucas Fritz was 4-for-4, with four singles. and Nico Galeazzi was 3-4. Jared Defillipo played well at shortstop.

Sunday, Galeazzi, Fritz and Aiden Dow scored in the third on RBI singles from Fritz, Mannion and Mark Tobin.

Lynn was down 8-3 in the top of the seventh, but scored two unearned runs.

Lynn faces Revere tonight (5:30).

15-year-olds

The15s also split this weekend, beating host Chelmsford, 5-4, Saturday and losing, 4-2, to Medford Sunday.

“Everybody on the team pitched in for us, it was a great team win (Saturday),” manager John Nerich said. “Carl Finnegan did a great job on the mound, he pitched well, Connor Donahue came in in relief he did a good job and Andy Duverge closed out the win, finishing off the game in the bottom of the seventh with the bases loaded.”

Donahue also hit a homer in the third inning that put Lynn up 3-1.

Sunday, Lynn fell behind 2-0 and 2-1, but fought back to make it 3-2, before Medford added a late run to win it, 4-2.

“We had some jitters early, we dug ourselves a hole,” Nerich said. “We battled, but we couldn’t tie it up when we got it to 3-2, we couldn’t get the runs across when we needed them.”

Brendan Lannon was outstanding on the mound for us, he pitched great for seven innings,” Nerich said. “We’ve got Peabody (tonight, 5) and then we’re back at it on Tuesday (5) against Newton.”

Lieutenant governor a driving force for Peabody elderly

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — The city’s seniors will be riding in style, thanks to a partnership of local, state, and federal agencies.

Lt. Governor Karyn Polito headlined a group of state and local officials at the Peter A. Torigian Senior Center extolling the Mobility Assistance Program Thursday afternoon. The partnership provides capital funding to councils on aging, transit agencies, and other non-profits to buy vehicles for the elderly and people with disabilities.

The program helped pay for six new vehicles for the Peabody Council on Aging (COA); a four-passenger minivan to help expand service in the city as well as five replacement vehicles, ranging from eight to 16-passenger vans.

Polito praised the efforts of city officials working with the state government to bring the grant funding to Peabody. She also spoke about the quality of programs offered by the COA at the Torigian Center.

“This is another milestone to celebrate for this city and also our administration in making sure we are helping our senior citizens get to places like the senior center and then be able to get to their appointments for wellness, to get to a grocery store, to get to some other place that is important to them,” said Polito. “That’s why it’s critical to have a fleet of vehicles that can easily and safely and conveniently help our senior citizens get to where they need to go.”

Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. said the grants will only strengthen the already impressive services the city offers to its senior citizens.

“The Mobility Assistance Program helps cities like Peabody provide the outstanding transportation services for senior citizens and all people with disabilities,” said the mayor. “Without the state and federal funding, we would not be able to provide the transportation services needed in the city.”

The state grants covered $282,847 of the cost, with the $70,712 local match being pitched in by the Friends of the Peabody Council on Aging.

Local transportation such as that offered by the COA and other municipal organizations can often be overlooked, said Astrid Glynn, the state’s rail and transit administrator for the department of transportation.

“This (grant) can give communities like Peabody a lot of flexibility to design transportation plans that meet the needs of the people they are serving,” said Glynn.

COA director Carolyn Wynn said the new vans will help improve service for senior citizens. She also praised the efforts of the Friends of the COA in providing the matching funds for the purchase.

“We have a wonderful Friends organization that understands the mission of keeping seniors independent and healthy,” she said.

The Mobility Assistance Program is a five-year, $30 million effort to improve transportation through vehicle upgrades throughout the state. The Peabody funding was just part of $10 million in funding for 27 organizations that was announced on Thursday, Polito said.

Peabody blanks Woburn, stays alive in Section 2

Abby Bettencourt threw her fifth shutout in six tournament games. 

By ANNE MARIE TOBIN

PEABODY — The Peabody 12-year-old softball all-stars lived to see another day last night at Lt. Ross Park, defeating Woburn 13-0 by mercy rule in four innings in a must-win game to keep its Section 2 title hope alive.

The Tanners left nothing to chance, sending 15 batters to the plate in the second inning, the first nine of whom scored, to jump out to a quick 9-0 lead.

Catcher Isabel Bettencourt had a monster game offensively, going three-for-four with three doubles and four RBI, including a big bases-clearing 3-run double in the second to break the game wide open.

Bettencourt’s younger sister, Abby, took care of things in the circle, throwing her fifth shutout in six tournament games.  She gave up just two hits (one of them in the infield), struck out three and walked three.

“We had that one big inning that we never could put together in  that first game (5-4 loss to East Bridgewater),” said Peabody coach Mark Bettencourt.  “ We left too many on base in that game, but, tonight,  getting those runs early took the pressure off.”

Peabody got off to a shaky start.  With two outs in the bottom of the first, Bettencourt was touched for a single by Kayla Robinson, who reached second on an infield error.  

That was the last time a Woburn runner would reach scoring position until the final inning of the game.

In addition to Isabel Bettencourt, five Tanners had RBIs, including Abby Bettencourt (1-for-4, run), Gina Terrazzano (1-for-3, run), Logan Lomasney (1-for-2, run), Penelope Spack (1-for-1, run), Hailey Roach (1-for-1, 2 walks) and Emma Bloom (2-for-3, 3 runs).

Danielle Mulready (1-for-2), Sarah Broughton and Michaela Alperen also scored.

Lomasney came up with the defensive play of the game in the bottom of the second inning when she saved one, perhaps two runs, with a diving shoestring catch in center field to rob Kaleigh Wilson of extra bases.

“That was a huge catch, just huge,” said Mark Bettencourt.  “They have runners at first and second and if that gets by Logan, that’s one, maybe two runs and that would have let them right back in the game. Making that play to end the inning, was no doubt, the key play in the game.”

Bettencourt also said he was happy with the play of his bench.

“I was pleased that our three subs (Alperen, Paige Ritchie, Maise Dunne) got on base as, collectively, they are very important to this team.”

The win sets up another must-win game this Saturday when the Tanners return to East Bridgewater hoping to avenge a 5-4 loss earlier in the tournament.  If the Tanners can win that game, they come back home Sunday for a winner-take-all game and the chance to move on to play for a state championship.

“Right now, that’s the goal is to get back to  Peabody to play for the section title,” said Bettencourt.  “We will need to play well to do it.”

Robert M. Shorey, 82

PEABODY Robert Milton Shorey, age 82, of Peabody, formerly of Lynn. Reserved, with a sharp wit, a warm smile, and an enduring resilience to care for the ones he loved, passed away peacefully while surrounded by his family on June 30, 2017.

Born in Lynn to Milton and Regina, Robert grew up closely cared for by his older sister, Bobbie. In high school, a friend introduced Robert to the young woman who would eventually become his wife. Myrna’s playful humor and Robert’s steady rationale would bring them 56 beautiful years of love, marriage, and family together. Before settling in Peabody, Bob and Myrna lived with their sons in upstate New York and Fort Wayne.

After graduating from Lynn English High School, Robert served in the United States Air Force. He was supported by Myrna while he completed General Electric’s Apprentice program and his Master’s Degree from Boston University and Union College. He had a long career with General Electric as an engineer architect of the quality control systems.

While raising his three sons with Myrna, Robert was Scout Leader of Troop 37 in Lynn, an active member and leader of Broadway United Methodist Church, a member of Center Congregational Church, and Jordan Masonic Lodge A. F. & A, M., for which he was recently received his 50 years medal. Family, friends, and the ocean were weaved into every effort and pastime of Robert’s life. He loved sailing in both New England and the Caribbean. In his later days, he was known to still point out and share stories about each harbor on the North Shore, the location of past moorings he and Myrna once owned, and the different sailboats they had enjoyed in each of those spots. Along with sailing, home repairs and woodworking were just some of the many talents Robert would share and teach his sons.

Throughout his life, Robert was steadfast in attending nearly every sport or activity each of his children and grandchildren would participate in. You could find him at little league to minor league baseball games, track meets, dance recitals, lacrosse, and soccer games. Robert would travel across Massachusetts, and even the country, to support his grandchildren in all of their endeavors.

Predeceased by his loving wife, Myrna Jean (Barke), Robert leaves behind a sister, Bobbie Shorey; sister in law, Barbara Barke; three sons and daughters-in-law, Dana and Michelle, Brian and Runxin, James and Carla; six grandchildren, Mark, Cara, Alicia, Taylor, Morgan, and Jason; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Peabody Higgins continues to move upfield

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — For students and staff, the first year is in the books at the new Higgins Middle School.

But that doesn’t mean work on the $92.6-million project is over. Over the summer, work will continue on the school’s athletic field, with the hope that the grass turf will be strong enough for use by next year.

“Depending on how the seed takes, we’re still looking at the fall of 2018 to be able to use that field,” said School Committee member Beverley Ann Griffin Dunne. “But, so people know, it could be the spring of 2019. That’s only so we have a good permanent solid field. If we do have to wait, it will end up being worth it in the end because no one wants to be playing in the mud.”

Although it will be at least a year before the athletic field is in use, Dunne said there has been major progress made in the past month.

“By the end of (this) week, the seeding should be completed on the field,” said Dunne. “If you drive by there now, you can really see the field. They took down some of the piles of dirt and all of a sudden you can see the whole thing. It will be beautiful for the whole city to use.”
In addition to the athletic field, landscaping and seeding is also taking place in several other areas around the Higgins during the summer. One landscaping issue that hasn’t been quite up to par, according to Dunne, is the bioretention area in front of the school.

“One of the things that happened there is that there are four different types of seed,” she said. “We will be working on an overall plan on how it is to be mowed and maintained. Certain areas of that bioretention area were designed to be very low maintenance, and we’re trying to adjust that to make sure that’s what happens.”

Inside the school, there are a few issues needing some minor tweaking.

“We’ve been having an awful time with the faucets,” Dunne said.

The company that installed the faucets has replaced them and will be checking to make sure the new faucets work properly either this week or next.

Construction began on the new school, only feet away from the old Higgins Middle School, in the summer of 2014 and was occupied by students during the recently completed school year. The Massachusetts School Building Authority is covering just under $44 million of the project cost.

By KATIE MORRISON

I have to admit, I’ve never been much of a golf fan. It was a sport that seemed inaccessible to me; my town didn’t have a course and my school didn’t have a team. I didn’t have any clubs and really didn’t know anyone who played golf regularly.

The few country clubs I’d been to, I’d found a little too proper for my tastes. So I was, perhaps, a little biased against the sport.

That being said, I wasn’t necessarily clamoring to cover the U.S. Senior Open last week. While I figured it’d be fun to photograph, I was nervous that I wouldn’t know what I was doing.

As it turns out, I had a blast at the Open. I was beyond impressed with the hard work put in by the tons of volunteers that turned out to make the event the best it could be. There’s so much that goes into hosting an event on that scale that most of us don’t see; the hospitality for the golfers, caddies, and other visitors, keeping the course and club spotless, providing anything the fans and attendees might need, accommodating the media, running shuttle buses for parking…a lot of people are needed to keep things running smoothly.

I know it’s not the first time Salem Country Club has hosted a USGA championship like this one, but each time, it’s a once-in-a-decade (or longer) chance to showcase the club, the course, the city and the area. Think of how many eyes were on Salem CC over the past week, in person and on TV or online. From what I understand, the folks over at Salem have been preparing for this for the past few years, and I bet everyone who had a hand in making the Senior Open a big success are happy to finally be able to step back, take a breath and be proud of how the club and the city of Peabody were represented.

Part of what I loved about the Open was how different golf championships are from other sports. I followed a group of golfers through about five holes during the third round Saturday before staking out a spot near the clubhouse, and it was interesting to see the different ways fans chose to take in the Open. Some wouldn’t have to go the gym later, having followed certain golfers around all day. One woman I spoke to said she’s already walked 27 holes, and the day wasn’t over yet. Some grabbed a drink and parked their group along the ropes of one of the greens and waited for the golfers to come to them.

All in all, the Senior Open is an event that I likely wouldn’t have ever attended had it not come to the area. But I’m glad it did, and thank you to the people at Salem Country Club for hosting a great event.

Like I said, golf isn’t really my sport. Baseball, however, is. And while every level of the sport, from Little League to the majors, is my cup of tea, I’m especially drawn to the semi-pro and minor league levels. I love the schtick, the family-friendly feel, the silly entertainment between innings and watching guys who truly love to play the game and are working toward a higher goal.

So, naturally, the Futures Collegiate Baseball League, which includes the North Shore Navigators, is right up my alley. The league has really piqued my interest this year because it’s made some rule changes that mess with one of my favorite parts of the game: extra innings.

The FCBL became the first league in the country to adopt a home run derby format to decide extra inning games. When tied after 10 innings, the game will be decided by a home run derby. The idea is for it to be like a shootout in hockey. The manager from each team chooses up to three players to hit in the first round. Each team gets a three-minute round with two 30-seconds timeouts. After each one of those timeouts, the manager can swap in a new player to hit, or stay with the current hitter. The team with the most home runs wins.

If it’s still tied, they’ll go to a two-minute second round with one timeout. If STILL no winner is determined, a final round with one player from each team will hit for one minute.

Also, like hockey, this means that the league is determining standings off a points system. Once a game reaches the point of the derby, each team gets a point, and the winner will get another point.

Now, the FCBL has some very good reasons for making this change. Unlike in the minors or pros, the collegiate leagues struggle to find enough pitching to last them the entire summer. Extra-inning games can force managers to use pitchers on short rest, and it’s especially crucial to preserve the arms of these young pitchers.

Of course, there’s always another factor at play as well, and that’s entertainment. With the current debate over how to improve the pace of play in the MLB, extra innings have been an area where leagues can chop some time off the game and (hopefully) inject a little more excitement.

For example, in the World Baseball Classic this past March, new rules were tested. Starting in the 11th, each team will start with runners on first and second base. I was vehemently against the rule change; I’ve always loved the close calls and final payoff that come with extra-inning games.

So when I heard about the FCBL’s rule change, I was intrigued, but skeptical. I’ve yet to actually witness these new rules in effect, but the Navs have benefitted so far; they’ve been involved in three derbies, with slugger Alex Brickman powering them to a victory in two of them.

The Navs and the Bristol Blues played a 21-inning game last year that had to be stopped in the 17th and continued on another day because of the league’s curfew. I was spoiled and was there for the conclusion, a win for North Shore at Fraser Field.

And that was a really fun time. But I didn’t have to sit through the first 17 innings, so that’s easy for me to say. But I’m curious, if anyone has been at one of the games decided by a home run derby — what did you think? I’m still on the fence, but I’d have to see it in action and in person to really know how I feel. But if you want to share your thoughts, write to me at kmorrison@itemlive.com.

Peabody golf thief gets clocked

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — A Peabody man allegedly tried to make off with a golf cart full of U.S. Senior Open swag from Salem Country Club early Saturday morning.

Matthew S. French, 31, of 500 Northshore Road, Apt. 2A, was arrested on a warrant later that morning and charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime to commit a felony, breaking into a depository, and six counts of larceny over $250.

At about 4 a.m. Saturday morning, Sgt. James Harkins was working with PGA security to set up barriers and get traffic barriers in place for the third round of the U.S. Senior Open tournament. While working the detail, Harkins came across several items scattered on the course that appeared to have been stolen from the country club, including Rolex clocks used at the tees for the tournament, according to Peabody Police Captain Dennis Bonaiuto.

Harkins alerted the station, as well as PGA security, who reviewed videotapes from the clubhouse. It didn’t take police long to identify French as the suspect.

“Earlier in the morning, just before 1 a.m. on July 1, we got a call about a suspicious person walking in the vicinity of Pilgrim Rehab at 96 Forest Street, stumbling around the area,” said Bonaiuto. “Our guys identified the person and determined that he had a little too much to drink. Other than that, there wasn’t too much going on. At this point, the officers felt that there was a safety issue and provided transportation for him home.”

But the following morning’s investigation by Officer Timothy Sullivan alleges that there was more going on than a little drunken stumbling around. According to police, French attempted to steal several Rolex clocks that were on the course, a portable security radio, clothing, about 30 tickets to the tournament, and a ticket scanner.

“It also appears that he attempted to steal a golf cart,” said the captain.

French was arraigned in Peabody District Court on Monday morning.

$1.2M grant funds waterfront development

Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy addresses the crowd during her annual update to the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce at the Porthole Restaurant on Friday.

By THOMAS GRILLO

LYNN — The city received a $1.2 million state grant that will create a new entrance to the city’s first waterfront development in decades.

Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy unveiled the award Friday in her annual update to the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce. The cash, under MassWorks, a state program that provides funding to support economic development, will be used to build a southbound turn into the former Beacon Chevrolet site on the Lynnway. The $80 million project featuring 348 waterfront apartments is expected to break ground in November.

“These dollars have not only assisted the developer in making the project a reality, but those funds will also help to connect the downtown with the waterfront, creating a walkable, livable community with great housing, businesses, and open space,” she said.

Kennedy, who is seeking a third term this year, never mentioned the race or her opponent, state Sen. Thomas M. McGee (D-Lynn).

Instead, the mayor focused on what she called a series of accomplishments to keep the city moving forward.

North Shore Community College’s (NSCC) $21 million expansion project is nearly complete, the mayor said. Staff has moved into the new space and students will take their seats in new classrooms in September.

“The expansion is testimony to how vital NSCC is to Lynn,” she said. “Much like our K-12 public schools, the college is bursting at the seams and the expansion will go a long way to provide an affordable college education to North Shore students.”

On Washington Street, construction is underway by the Lynn Housing Authority & Neighborhood Development on Gateway Residences, 69 units of affordable housing and retail space which, she said, will fuel the city’s effort to revitalize a gritty section of the city.

“It will act as a catalyst for other development,” Kennedy said.

The only applause in the 15-minute speech came when the mayor hailed Lynn YMCA’s plans to expand. She said the city has deeded a 35,000-square-foot portion of Wheeler Street to the nonprofit to be used for the facility’s expansion.

So far, the Y has raised more than $7 million in tax credits and another $7 million in donations for what will be a 70,000-square-foot Y, she said.

“A groundbreaking is coming,” she said. “Lynn will surely have the best YMCA on the eastern seaboard. Take that Peabody, Lynnfield and Marblehead.

Other projects she noted include 23 Central St., better known as the Flatiron Building. Quincy-based MG2, formerly the Mayo Group, is converting the former office building in the downtown into 49 market rate apartments. Tenants in the $12 million project are expected to move in this fall, she said.

The mayor and staff have been meeting with the new owners of the former Item building where apartments are planned for the upstairs and retail on the ground level.

“They plan to keep the printing press and we have been talking to them about having them open a microbrewery called the Press Room,” she said.

Kennedy also mentioned smaller projects such as the makeover of the Lynn Marketplace, the strip mall on State Street, and Hacienda Corona, a family-owned restaurant that features traditional Mexican dishes on the Lynnway, is expanding to the downtown.

The mayor blamed the city’s recent financial woes on the growing public school enrollment. When she took office in 2010, the city had 13,625 students and the school budget was $107 million. This year, there are more than 16,000 students and the budget has swelled to nearly $144 million, a 30 percent increase.

“At the same time, some of the city departments have been level funded,” she said. “It’s been quite a struggle to try to keep city services at the current level while at the same time making ends meet.”

Kennedy said the Lynn Auditorium continues to expand with more shows than ever. Donny and Marie are coming this year. The mayor also mentioned the opening of Market Basket at the former General Electric Factory of the Future.

“We will continue to lead the way and make Lynn, Massachusetts all that it can and should be: a great place to live work and play,” she said.

James Cowdell, executive director of the Lynn Economic Development and Industrial Corp., the city’s development bank, said the city recently received a $200,000 grant to clean the contaminated 15,000-square-foot Whyte’s Laundry site.

That could clear the way for redevelopment of the shuttered Anthony’s Hawthorne Restaurant in the downtown, he said.

Peabody raises stink over Big Pig in Lynnfield

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — The smell of barbecue wafting down Route 1 might not be to everyone’s taste.

Big Pig Barbecue and Catering of Lynnfield is looking to bring its business, complete with a $20,000 smoker, to 108 Newbury St. But residents of the nearby Huntington Woods condominium complex and some city councilors are concerned about odors that might come with the smoker.

On Tuesday, July 18, the City Council will continue a special permit hearing for the catering business. Council President Joel Saslaw said he hopes the business owners have answered questions about the ventilation and heating of the smoker.

Last week, the Zoning Board of Appeals approved a variance for Big Pig being within the buffer zone for Huntington Woods. Although there have been several restaurants at 108 Newbury St. in the past, the special permit from the council is needed to run a catering business out of the building.

Councilor-at-Large Anne Manning Martin said she was concerned about the location and ventilation of the smoker at the business. The smoker is an indoor/outdoor unit attached to the building.

“My main concern is for the residents,” Manning-Martin said. She said it wasn’t clear at the ZBA meeting that the smoker and ventilation would be partly outside.

“This is a new piece of information and I think people should reflect on that,” the councilor-at-large said. “People do not want the smell of smoking meats wafting to their area. This is a valid concern and a concern that was not aired properly at the ZBA.”

Big Pig co-owner Jon Hambrecht said the doors to the smoker are inside the building, with the body and smokestack of the unit outside. He said the smoker has been used at their locations in Wilmington and Lynn with no complaints.

“It’s a fine line between supporting business and also making sure the quality of life of residents is not affected,” said Saslaw.

The residents of Huntington Woods are being sent notices about the July 18 hearing. In addition to additional information about the smoker, the board of health will be visiting the site to vet the odor situation.

In an email to the condominium complex residents, Saslaw said he will be reaching out to the Big Pig owner to see the smoker in full use.

The focus of the business will be on catering, but Hambrecht and co-owner Chris LaBella said the plan is to open up Big Pig to restaurant sales and use the existing drive-through window within the next three to four months.

Claus and effect at U.S. Senior Open: Lynn couple serve as marshals

ITEM PHOTO BY SPENSER HASAK
Jay Richards, serving as a marshal at the Salem Country Club for the U.S. Senior Open.

By STEVE KRAUSE

PEABODY — It doesn’t take much imagination to squint and decide that Jay Richards, with his long, bushy beard and white hair to match, looks like someone very familiar.

Hale Irwin, a professional golfer who is at Salem Country Club this week to take part in the U.S. Senior Open, picked up on it immediately.

After teeing off on the eighth hole during a practice round, Irwin sidled up to Richards.

“What do I have to do?” Irwin asked him, Richards said.

“I thought he wanted to know what he should do on his next shot,” said Richards, who is familiar to local sports fans as a hockey and lacrosse coach for Lynn Tech and several other schools. “So I started to tell him what I’d do.

“I’m a 29-handicap,” said Richards, with a laugh. “I’m terrible.”

Before he could go on, Irwin, according to Richards, said, “Oh, no, I mean what do I have to do to get on Santa’s list. I’ve always wanted to be on Santa’s List.”

Such is the life of a gallery marshal at a championship golf tournament. Most of the time, they stand on the fringes of the action, putting their hands up to admonish the crowd to be quiet when golfers putt or tee off, and opening and closing the roped off walkways that lead from one hole to the other. Often, marshals are tasked with finding errant balls that miss the in-bounds parts of the course completely and land in the woods.

Both Richards and his wife, Colleen Kelly Richards, a retired dance teacher who taught in Lynn, are at Salem Country Club this week to act as gallery marshals. They did it in 2001 too, the last time the tournament came to the club.

“Marshals make sure the crowd stays pleasant,” said Colleen Kelly Richards, who was on the second hole this week. “This is my third time doing this. We were here once before, and the other time at Ferncroft (in Danvers) with the ladies.”

She is no stranger to Salem Country Club. Her family belonged to the club since she was a child, “and I started swinging a golf club when I was 5 years old.”

But when her parents divorced, she stopped going to Salem. These days, she belongs to Gannon, “where I golf just about every day.”

Her husband, also a member at Gannon, was the varsity hockey coach at Tech during the 1990s, and later assisted at both Bishop Fenwick and Peabody. He later was Tech’s varsity lacrosse coach until three years ago, when he stepped down. Although he has retired from teaching and coaching, he is still active in the Lynn area as a plumber.

He too is a golfer at Gannon and tries to get out three times a week. Otherwise, he said, “I’m like most people, I’d say. I love to watch golf on Sunday afternoons on TV.”  

He says he always enjoys the interaction with the pros while he’s serving as a marshal.

“The last time we had this here (2001), Raymond Floyd hit a shot that landed on the top of the green and rolled all the way down to the bottom.

“He was furious,” Richards said, “He says ‘what the heck do you have to do to get the ball to bite on this course?’”

LYNN — Power has been restored to the neighborhood on the Peabody line after a tree fell and shattered four light poles, a transformer, and sending power lines into the street.

The lights went out at about 11 a.m. Thursday when neighbors heard a giant boom.

National Grid said power was lost to 50 customers on Sunset Road, Betty Terrace, Cannon Rock Road, and portions of Den Quarry Road. But by midnight, crews had removed the  tree and electricity was back on.

US Senior Open is a homecoming for Johnson

ITEM PHOTO BY SPENSER HASAK
Chip Johnson speaks with his caddie and wife Pam while he hits on the practice tee following his first round of the U.S. Senior Open. 

By BOB ALBRIGHT 

PEABODY — Precious few touring pros can claim that they qualified to play in a pair of national opens in their home state.

And when you factor in the number of club pros to accomplish that lofty feat the number becomes infinitesimal.

Chip Johnson, however, is the exception.

The Salem-born golfer and longtime Hatherly CC (Scituate) head pro came out of nowhere as a wide-eyed 25-year-old to qualify for the U.S. Open at The Country Club in 1988 and nearly three decades later, once again punched his ticket to play in this week’s U.S. Senior Open.

“How many guys can say that,” he asked with a chuckle. “I can remember what a big deal it was back in ‘88 to see these same guys when they were just starting their tour careers and now it has all come full circle again. It’s a thrill.”

And through nine holes Friday Johnson appeared that he might even pull off an even more impressive exploit by making the cut just as he did on the testy fairways in Brookline back in ‘88. Sitting right on the projected cut at 2-over-par through the first nine holes, thanks to a terrific short game, four bogeys on the back nine effectively ended the impressive run for Johnson, who finished 1-over for the day and a very solid 4-over-par (144) for the two days. That’s not too bad for a guy who was running a youth clinic with his wife and caddie, Pam Kerrigan, at his Scituate club just a few days ago.

“To be a father and keep track of 300-and-something members at Hatherly, I think it’s amazing that he can just come out and compete like this,” said Kerrigan, a former LPGA player herself, who had her husband on her bag for many of her tournaments during her career.

“I try to keep him calm. I can read him and know when he’s getting frustrated.”

Although Johnson may have moved from the North Shore to the South Shore when he was just in diapers, you would never know it by the sprawling galleries he attracted both rounds.

“I was playing a practice round the other day and a guy came up and old me that he used to play golf with my father (Ken) all the time at the North Shore Country Club,” Johnson, 54, said with a grin, of the popular old course in Peabody that now is the site of Bishop Fenwick High School. “The crowd support has been great.”

Johnson’s late parents, Ken and Anne Johnson, grew up on the North Shore before moving to the South Shore, where Ken took a school administration job. Ken Johnson grew up in Peabody, caddied at Salem, captained the Peabody High golf team, and eventually met the love of his life, Anne Clancy, from Salem. Add those sturdy roots to the 300-plus members Johnson caters to in Scituate and he was not lacking for support.

“The gallery was awesome, they kept me motivated,” said Johnson after finishing up his first round on Thursday that saw him hit just four fairways, but still somehow manage to card a 3-over-par 73.

“Pam gave me a verbal lesson about the 17th tee box and I striped both of them after that,” said Johnson, who qualified at Kernwood and who has now remarkably qualified for five majors on the PGA and Champions Tour.

“I’m like most husbands, I just try to do what she says.”

Gonzalez, Peabody blank Lynn

By HAROLD RIVERA

PEABODY — The Lynn District 1 14-year-old Babe Ruth team proved it could hit the baseball hard in Thursday’s game against Peabody at Bezemes Diamond. Sometimes, however, hitting the ball hard isn’t enough to win if the opposing defense is making plays.

Behind a complete-game effort from pitcher Alex Gonzalez, Peabody needed just one run to take the win, 1-0, and claim the District 1 Tournament Championship.

“Alex was on from the beginning,” Peabody coach Jarrod Hochman said. “He was hitting spots all game long. He was sensational. He was throwing what he throws but hitting spots with his pitches and challenging batters.”

Add in a terrific effort from Peabody on defense and the winning formula proved to be a success.

“That’s what Alex was told to do,” Hochman said. “Pitch and pound the zone. We have a great defense behind him.”

The lone run of the game was scored in the bottom of the second inning. Matt Bottelo doubled to lead off the inning and advanced to third base on a groundout from Chris Faraca. Kyle Maglione hit a high pop-up that spelled trouble for Lynn, allowing Bottelo to race home from third for the 1-0 Peabody lead.

From there, both pitchers settled in.

Peabody’s Gonzalez tossed seven innings of shutout baseball, allowing just one hit and tallying four strikeouts.

Lynn’s Luke Mannion also turned in a stellar effort on the mound. In six innings of work, Mannion allowed three hits and fanned four Peabody batters.

“From the very first pitch of the game, Luke was pounding the strike zone,” Lynn coach Dave Galeazzi said. “He was just in total control. Gonzalez from Peabody was equal to him. It was an unbelievable baseball game from 14-year-old kids. You don’t see too many 1-0 games.”

Although Lynn was kept off the scoreboard, the bats were putting the ball in play for the majority of the game.

In the top of the third inning, a Peabody error, it’s only one of the evening, allowed Andrew Luciano to reach second base with two outs. Gonzalez forced a groundout to second baseman Maglione to escape the jam.

“The back half of the game, we were just hitting rifle shots,” Galeazzi said. “Peabody was just making the plays and we have to give them credit. We had too many flyouts and, especially with the wind, we had to keep the ball on the ground. That was my only criticism. It was an unbelievable baseball game.”

A two-out double off Mannion’s bat in the fourth inning gave Lynn another chance to tie the game. Again, Maglione supported Gonzalez with a nice play at second base to end the jam.

“I can’t say enough about our defense,” Hochman said. “We play good defense. That’s what this team’s about, pitching and defense.”

Gonzalez forced Lynn to go down in order in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to seal the win for Peabody.

“We expected this to be a 1-0, 2-1 game,” Hochman said. “We know Mannion’s a good pitcher, we know Lynn’s a well-coached team that plays good defense and puts the bat on the ball. We expected a close game.”

Despite the loss, Lynn’s Galeazzi was proud of his team’s effort.

“We told them that there was nothing to hang their heads about,” Galeazzi said. “It was just an incredibly played game. We’ll face them again in the state tournament. The last four times, we’ve played them were all one-run games. We won two, they won two. You can’t get any more consistent than that.”

Miezwa going strong at US Senior Open

Bernie Miezwa, a 70-year-old caddie at Salem Country Club from Danvers put down the bags and took a job for Fox Sports calling out what clubs players were going to hit on the 3rd hole during the first round of the U.S. Senior Open.

By BILL BROTHERTON

PEABODY – When Bernie Miezwa caddied for Susie Berdoy in the 1984 Women’s U.S. Open at Salem Country Club, little did he know that 33 years later he’d still be lugging a bag around the treasured Donald Ross-designed course.

Even in 2001, when he assisted Oregon dentist Jeff Lienasser during the USGA’s previous Senior Open at Salem, he probably envisioned that’d be it.

Yet here he is, at age 70, still left holding the bag.

Miezwa, a Salem native and former Peabody resident who now calls Danvers home, has been caddying for more than 55 years. He’s older than nearly every player in the 38th U.S. Senior Open Championship, which began yesterday.

“At my age, the hills are getting higher or my feet are getting shorter,” he said, with a grin. “At 200 pounds and 5-foot-2, I seem to be shrinking.”

In practice rounds earlier this week, the retired Sylvania employee caddied for amateur David Schmidt of Virginia and pro John Hearn of Hawaii. Yesterday afternoon, he was working as a spotter for Fox Sports, standing on the 3rd tee, compiling data on the players’ club choices on the 149-yard par-three hole.

He can still be found in Salem’s caddie barn most weekend mornings, along with another long-timer, Jimmy Byrne of Peabody.

“Way back when, I cut my eyeteeth at Kernwood. I’d walk a couple of miles from my home, wait all day, while the older kids got all the assignments. If I was lucky, I’d get a bag by day’s end. But I loved caddying right away. Why would any kid want to work in a store or flip burgers, when you could be outdoors, on a beautiful course.”

Miezwa said Salem’s caddie program is the best around, and the commitment and support from members is unprecedented. “They take it seriously. So many members at Salem caddied here growing up, and they know what a difference it can make in a young person’s life.”

Miezwa caddied every year when the LPGA’s Boston Five Classic was held at Ferncroft CC in Middleton and in subsequent years when the tourney got new sponsors and moved to courses in Canton and Agawam. He used vacation time to do this, no doubt problematic for his then-wife; they eventually divorced after 16 years of marriage. He’s been with his current girlfriend for 24 years.

The going rate when Miezwa started caddying was 75 cents to shag balls and about $2 for 18 holes. At Salem and most local courses today, caddies get $40 per bag plus tips per round. “When I got out of the Army, I started working at Sylvania in 1978. I made 80 bucks for a 40-hour week,” said Miezwa, a natural-born storyteller if ever there was one.

“I’m old school. A caddie shuts up and keeps up. Today, a caddie has to keep up with technology, but I’m spot-on when going up against a laser (to determine yardage). I won’t use them. I step off the yardage, and I’m every bit as accurate as a laser,” said Miezwa.

How much longer will Miezwa caddie? “My feet hurt. My back aches. I am feeling my age; my body’s wearing down. But you come here in May and June, early morning, birds are chirping, the grass is wet with dew, there’s no better place on earth than Salem Country Club.”

He adds: “You pay to go to a fitness center. Here, I get my exercise and I get paid to do it. You can’t beat that.”

Bettencourt, Peabody shutout Wyoma

Abigail Bettencourt pitched a gem in the circle for Peabody in Thursday’s win. 

By MIKE ALONGI 

PEABODY — The Peabody All-Star softball team has been rolling through the District 16 tournament for the past few weeks, and it all culminated in a 5-0 win over Wyoma to capture the District 16 title on Thursday evening. Peabody outscored its opponents 35-0 over the tournament, showcasing solid hitting and great pitching.

“I thought we played really well out there,” said Peabody coach Mark Bettencourt. “We stayed aggressive, we didn’t make any mistakes to help them out, and we got lucky on a few plays to help us out. And the way these girls have played over the past month, it just speaks volumes about how much they care about this and how much they want to win. This is the team that won the 9/10 year-old state title a couple years ago, and they want to get back there this year and do it again.”

The great pitching came from both sides, but Peabody’s Abigail Bettencourt got the upper hand eventually. Bettencourt tossed a complete game shutout, allowing only three hits with five strikeouts. On the offensive end for Peabody, Abigail and Isabel Bettencourt each had one RBI in the win.

For Wyoma, pitcher Lily Newhall also pitched a complete game, allowing five runs on five hits with five strikeouts. Newhall, Kaelyn Jennings and Katie Miller each had hits on the offensive side.

“It’s tough, because we’re an aggressive team and sometimes it works out and sometimes it burns you,” said Wyoma coach Jay Newhall. “We had some hits early, but we knew if we had a chance to win the game we had to take it. We just couldn’t do that tonight, but I’m still very proud of what these girls did over these past few weeks.”

The game was a classic pitcher’s duel from the start, although Wyoma was making good contact early on. Wyoma notched all three hits in the first two innings, but its trademark aggressive baserunning came back to haunt it when it got caught up in two double plays over that span of time. From there, Abigail Bettencourt locked in.

Newhall was solid on the other side, retiring nine of the first 10 batters she faced. In the bottom of the fourth, Peabody broke through.

After moving runners to second and third with two outs, Peabody scored back-to-back runs on passed balls to take a 2-0 lead.

“I think we were played a little tight when it was tied in the later innings,” Bettencourt said. “Once we got those first couple runs, I think everyone loosened up a little bit and started to hit the ball to give us some insurance runs.”

With the pressure lessened, Peabody added three more runs in the bottom of the fifth. Abigail Bettencourt got things started with an RBI single, then came around to score on a fielder’s choice from Reese Brinkler to make it 4-0. Isabel Bettencourt smashed an RBI double to drive in Brinkler and make it 5-0.

Wyoma gave it one final shot, getting runners to second and third in the top of the sixth, but Abigail Bettencourt struck out the final two batters she faced to seal the title.

Next for Peabody will be the sectional tournament, which starts early next week.

Fahey propels North past South

By KATIE MORRISON

LYNN — The 6th-annual Agganis All-Star Girls Lacrosse game had plenty of storylines to watch. For one, it was a rematch of sorts for coaches Annie Madden (Marblehead), who was on the South sideline, and Kerri O’Connor (Ipswich), in charge of the North. The Tigers topped the Magicians, 12-8, in the Division 2 North semifinal.

The game was also a chance to watch some of the best players in the area, if not the state, like North MVP Grace Fahey, who will continue her lacrosse career at Syracuse. Fahey scored four goals en route to a 14-9 North win.

“It’s a coach’s dream right there,” O’Connor said of her team. “They played well together, and most will be playing in college, but a few aren’t. So we were talking ahead of time about how it’s the last game for a few of them, but the rest of them, they kind of thought of it as the last time representing their town and home before they’re off to the big college leagues. So they played well together, they did a great job.”

Central Catholic’s Cara McCarthy got the scoring started for the North seven minutes into the 30-minute half. Winchester’s Isabel Bush, who won the South MVP, responded with two goals in quick succession, one on a free position, to give the South a 2-1 lead.

That wouldn’t last long, as the North rattled off six straight goals to grab a 7-2 lead. Ipswich’s Julia Glavin knotted the score at 2-2, and her Tigers teammate Kelsey Daly gave the North a lead it wouldn’t relinquish at the 17-minute mark. The South held off the North’s offensive attack for a few minutes, but Bishop Fenwick’s Molly Camelo added to the lead with 9:30 to play. Two minutes later, Melrose’s Shannon Jones made it 5-2 North, and then Fahey won the ensuing draw and took it straight to the net for a 6-2 lead. Belmont’s AnnMarie Habelow added another before the South could get back on the board, as Winchester’s Maeve Hickey found the back of the net to make it 7-3.

Peabody’s Lauren Wolff scored on a free position with 15 seconds left to make it a three-goal game heading into the half.

Winchester’s Siobhan Hickey’s goal coming out of the break got the South within two at 7-5. But then the North turned up the heat once again and scored five straight to take a 12-5 lead. McCarthy, Camelo and Fenwick’s Hannah Durkin each scored once during the streak and Fahey added the other two.

Goals from Bush and Wolff made it 12-7, but McCarthy and Camelo responded with goals to make it 14-7. Bush capped off the scoring with two late goals.

O’Connor said there wasn’t much coaching required given the level of talent on her team.

“It doesn’t require too much coaching, it’s more about getting them excited,” O’Connor said. “They realize they’re playing against a group of all-stars so they gave it their all, and most of all they had a great time playing the sport they love to play. It was an honor, I had a great time.”

Madden expressed similar sentiments.

“It’s always a pleasure to come to the Agganis game and see the talent from all over the North Shore,” Madden said. “Coming out and giving them one last game to represent your school and team one last time. I played in high school, and I love the cause behind everything.”

Wyoma downs Marblehead in continuation game

By MIKE ALONGI 

LYNN — It took one extra day, but the Wyoma Little League softball All-Star team kept its tournament fight alive with a 10-4 win over Marblehead at Lynn Woods Wednesday. The contest was a continuation of Tuesday night’s game, which was delayed due to lightning and rain in the fourth inning.

“Last night, nothing was going our way,” said Wyoma coach Jay Newhall. “We had the bases loaded a couple of times and hit balls right at them, and then we made some mistakes on our end, so things weren’t looking great. I guess if anyone needed it to rain last night, it was us.”

Wyoma fell behind 3-1 before the rain started. Newhall noticed that his team didn’t have the aggressiveness it showed in previous games.

“We focused on being aggressive on the basepaths like we usually do, which we didn’t have last night,” said Newhall. “I think that aggressiveness really plays to our advantage, and once we were able to get some people on base and start running, we were able to score.”

The aggressiveness certainly came back Wednesday, as Wyoma threatened in the top of the fourth by moving runners to second and third with two outs. Although Marblehead pitcher Emma Hortaridis escaped the inning without any damage, Wyoma was on the verge of making a run.

After pitcher Lily Newhall moved through the bottom of the fourth without allowing a run, Wyoma came up for another chance to score. Wyoma succeeded this time around, eventually taking the lead. It started with Reese Brinkler’s RBI sinle to cut the deficit to one run, then Allie Fritz tied the game with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly. A run then came in on a passed ball, and Wyoma was out in front, 4-3.

After a quick bottom of the fifth thanks to Newhall, Wyoma came back up to the plate in the top of the sixth and put the game away. After Heather Holey doubled to lead off the inning, Gianna Nikolakopoulos’ RBI single to centerfield to made it 5-3. Two batters later, with runners on second and third, Brynn Bullock smashed a two-run double to go up by four runs. Brinkler notched her second RBI with a single to bring in Bullock, then Newhall drove in Brinkler with an RBI triple. After Newhall scored on a passed ball and the dust finally settled, Wyoma was up in firm command at 10-3.

Marblehead got a run back back in the bottom of the sixth when Juliet Poss scored on a passed ball, but Newhall was able to work out of further trouble and sealed the win.

The win keeps Wyoma alive as it tries to escape from the loser’s bracket. Next up will be Peabody, the team that Wyoma lost to last week to end up in the loser’s bracket.

“All we really are focusing on right now is Peabody, and that’s all we can focus on,” said Newhall. “We’re not even taking it one game at a time, we’re taking it one inning at a time now. We’ve just got to buckle down and keep playing like we’re capable of playing.”

Lynn’s Dufour has important role in US Open

By MIKE ALONGI 

PEABODY — With the real golfing at the US Senior Open ready to officially get underway early tomorrow morning at Salem Country Club, multitudes of volunteers are continuing to work as hard as possible to bring fans and golfers an unforgettable experience. Perhaps one of the hardest workers this week is SCC member and Lynn native Dave Dufour, who is in charge of the cart house and all vehicles used for the tournament.

“We have about 80 vehicles that we’re responsible for, and we serve everyone from the USGA people, the committee, the vendors, the police, the firemen and more, so we have a big role,” said Dufour. “We’ve also been doing shuttling for golfers to bring them from the range to the tees and things like that, so it’s been a full week already.”

Dufour was hit with challenges right away this week, as several carts started to break down throughout the day on Monday during practice rounds.

“We had some carts come over from the US Open in Wisconsin that the USGA brought and they had some issues, but we got them charged up and we’ll be fine for the week.”

This isn’t Dufour’s first rodeo when it comes to volunteering at a major USGA golf tournament. Dufour, who has been a member at SCC for 18 years now, was barely two years into his membership back in 2001 when the Senior Open was last in Peabody. He volunteered to take part in that tournament as well, drawing the role of a walking scorekeeper for the pros. He even got to keep score for legendary golfer Gary Player on one of the days.

“It was really a cool experience walking inside the ropes with the players, especially taking score for Gary Player,” said Dufour. “I also got to walk with the third-to-last group on the final day with (Tour pro) Allen Doyle, who’s back here this year, so it was really an exciting experience.”

This time around, Dufour finds himself with a much larger role in the tournament, but he’s having just as much fun there.

“Last time, I just signed up for any committee and was able to get on, and since I was a new member they didn’t have me do too much,” he said. “This time, as more of a senior member of the club, they asked me if I’d run this group we have here and I was all for it.”

Dufour supervises a crew of 45 people who run carts all over the course for all purposes from 5:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. for the entirety of the tournament. And while he is mainly in a supervisory role, he’s still gotten some time to interact with some players.

“Doing some of the shuttling work you get to talk to the players, which is always cool,” Dufour said. “They’re all always very cordial, and they thank us for letting them use the course and tell us how nice it is and all that stuff, so it’s a great experience.”

But above all, Dufour simply feels pride seeing his club used for such a big tournament.

“The most positive thing about it is that so many people can come and see the course, and when they start telling you the things they like about it and all that, it feels really good,” he said. “It’s certainly an honor to have them here, and I hope everyone continues to have good things to say about our home course.”

Now, with the actual tournament ready to tee off tomorrow morning, the real work can begin for Dufour and his crew.
