Girls’ basketball preview: Who can stop Bishop Guertin?


The only question worth asking in Division I girls’ basketball this season is the same one circling the league the last two seasons: Who is going to put an end to Bishop Guertin of Nashua’s reign of d’

Another one. The complete details.

Bishop Guertin’s Ava Owens, center, drives through Pinkerton Academy defenders Jesse Ames, left, and Brooke Kane during last season’s Division I championship game at Southern New Hampshire University. BG won for its third straight title. Owens returns to a strong Cardinals squad, while Player of the Year Kane and Ames return to the Astros, who are expected to contend.

Hanover’s Maddie McCorkie goes for the hoop past Hollis/Brookline’s Elizabeth Bonnette during last season’s Division II girls’ basketball semifinals. McCorkie and Bonnette are back, and their teams are expected to contend again.

Oh Canada! South alum Finkelstein finds a title at McGill | News, Sports, Jobs

Courtesy photo Former Nashua South pitcher Zach Finkelstein, left, is all smiles after helping McGill Univierity win its fifth straight Canada University World Series championship this fall. Canadian colleges play their regular season in the fall rather than the spring.

Baseball players are usually creatures of habit, and that was certainly the case with former Nashua High School South pitcher Zach Finkelstein, who decided a year ago to take an offer to attend and pitch for McGill University in Montreal.

Just one catch ‘ Canada’s collegiate season is in the fall, where in the U.S. Fall ball for colleges is basically a brief exhibition season. But in Canada, it’s the main deal. And Finkelstein is glad it is, because McGill won its fifth straight Canadian University World Series Championship last month in Ottawa, beating the University of New Brunswick.

Eagle-Tribune Girls Basketball All-Stars – Eagle

JOSEPH PREZIOSO/PhotoGrace Efosa (23), our Eagle-Tribune girls basketball MVP, did a bit of everything for Whittier this winter.

The 5-foot-10 Whittier sophomore from Haverhill did a bit of everything for the Wildcats this winter, and coach Kevin Bradley believes she is one of the best to come through the program.

‘She stacks up with them,’ said Bradley. ‘The good thing about Grace is that she improved every game. She wants to dominate, and she’s very driven. She wants a basketball scholarship. She really has that drive.’

Efosa, our Eagle-Tribune MVP, averaged an area-high 23.4 points per game, which was 6.5 points more than the second-highest scorer. She scored 20 or more points in 16 of 21 games, and 30 or more points four times. That is the highest scoring average the area has seen since Methuen/Boston University great Rashidat Agboola averaged 24.9 ppg in the 2009-10 season.
