Fuccillo Spins a Perfect Game and a No-Hitter for EHS Softball Team
Amidst all of the exuberance in the past week surrounding the 300th career victory of veteran Everett High head softball coach Stacy Schiavo, her star pitcher, Celeste Fuccillo, tossed a pair of no-hit games within a span of three games over six days.
Celeste’s most-impressive performance was a perfect game against Greater Boston League rival Lynn English in which she struck out 11 enemy batters in five innings — the contest ended early because of the mercy rule — which means Fuccillo got 11 of the 15 outs via a strikeout.
Five days later, Celeste spun another no-hitter in a 21-1 rout of Somerville (which marked Schiavo’s 300th win) in which she fanned seven and walked only one. The lone Somerville run was unearned when a Lady Highlander reached on an error, stole second, and eventually scored on a ground-out.
Leading the way for the Everett offense in the win over English were Kayley Rossi with a single and a double and Kristi Skane and Emma Longmore with a base hit apiece.
In the big Somerville triumph, Skane had three hits, including a home run. Emilia Babock had a single and a double, Gianna Masucci had two doubles, Longmore had two hits, Bryanna Mason had a single and triple, and Rossi added a double.
Schiavo and her crew have a busy week. They took on Medford this past Monday and will make the short trek to Malden today (Wednesday). They will entertain non-league opponent Weymouth on Friday at Glendale at 4:00 and then entertain Chelsea on Monday. They will travel to Lynn Classical next Wednesday.
EHS Baseball Team Tops Gr. Lawrence, 13-9
The Everett High baseball team earned a 13-9 victory over Greater Lawrence behind the pitching and hitting of junior Matt Turilli.
Matt picked up the win on the mound and contributed mightily to his own cause at the plate with five RBI and two base hits.
Omar Marshall, Brian Gibbs, and Nordeivy Santana also had multiple-hit games for the Crimson Tide.
Everett then came out on the short end of a tough 2-1 decision in extra innings to Greater Boston League (GBL) rival Somerville.
Marshall turned in a stellar pitching effort in going seven-plus innings. Omar also provided all of the Everett offense, accounting for the Tide’s only two hits and scoring the lone run.
In an 11-1 loss to Revere, the Everett bats once again were quiet.
Frankie Velasquez had an RBI single to cut the deficit to 2-1 in the third inning, but that would prove to be all the offense that Everett would muster on the day.
Revere broke open a 4-1 game in the sixth thanks to a combination of Everett miscues and timely hitting.
The loss dropped Everett’s record to under-.500 for the first time this season at 3-4.
Coach Joel Levine and his crew were scheduled to host Medford this past Monday and to entertain Malden today (Wednesday) at Glendale at 4:00. They will make the short trek to Chelsea next Monday and return home to face Lynn Classical next Wednesday.
Boys Track Drops Decision to Malden
Although the Everett High boys outdoor track and field team came out on the short end of an 82.5-52.5 decision to Greater Boston League opponent Malden last week, a number of Crimson Tide turned in fine individual performances.
Everett captured six of the individual events: junior Patrick Bien Aime in the 400 dash in 58.4; senior Wensley Monpremier in the 800 in 2:29.2; senior Lilian Pochot in the long jump with a flight of 19’-7.75”; senior Donovan Gaskins with a shot-put toss of 38’-9.75”; senior Jareid Celestin with a discus spin of 91’-0”; and senior Seth Sylvain with a javelin throw of 97’-5”.
Adding three points to the Everett cause with second-place performances were: Gaskins in the discus (85’-6.5”); Adail Costa Fernandes in the triple jump (33’06”); Pochot in the 200 dash (25.4); Shinay Aristhene in the 100 hurdles in 19.4; Samuel Desir Mafouana in the mile (5:39.1); and Mompremier in the two-mile in 11:57.
Contributing single points with third-place finishes were: Adam Penaflor in the 400 hurdles (1:08); David Huezo-Erazo in the two-mile (14:35.5); junior Fludy Moise in the 400 dash in 59.6; and junior Reklov Lageroy in the 200 dash in 26.5.
Senior Darryl Monvil added a half-point in the 100 dash when his sprint of 12.7 tied a Malden competitor.
The Crimson Tide will host GBL archrival Chelaea tomorrow (Thursday).
