EHS Boys Basketball Set for Season-Opener
Coach Stanley Chamblain and the Everett High boys basketball team were scheduled to open the defense of their Greater Boston League title with their 2023 season-opener last night (Tuesday) at GBL rival Revere.
“The pre-season went fairly well,” said Chamblain, whose 2022 squad was a perfect 14-0 vs. GBL foes last year. “We have a lot of new faces on this year’s roster, but they have shown the ability of really getting after it and wanting to be coached up.”
The Crimson Tide will be led by senior captains Steven Cordero and David De Souza.
“The leadership of our veterans, Steven Cordero, David De Souza, and Kevin Ruiz, has been tremendous,” noted Chamblain. “They have held their teammates accountable from day one. This is an extremely fun group to coach thus far and I’m really excited to see what this season brings.”
The full varsity roster for the 2023 team is as follows: Kamarri Ellerbe, David De Souza, Alex Callejas Portillo, Steven Cordero, Leison Ruiz, Anderson Joseph, Giacobbe Ward, Lian Santos Do Rosario, Cleevance Erilus, Allsin Desruisseaux, Steve Nunes, Adam Penaflor, Kevin Ruiz, Aidan Volquez, Jomanuel Desruisseaux, Aidan Duclos, and Sebastian Bryan.
Chamblain will be assisted on the sidelines by assistant coaches Gerry Boyce, Lawan Swain, Brian Benson, Devante Santiago, and Pierre Valmera.
After last night’s season-opener, Chamblain and his crew will play at GBL foe Medford tomorrow evening (Thursday) and then will make the short trek to GBL rival Malden next Tuesday.
EHS Girls Basketball Looking Forward To Season
The Everett High girls basketball was set to tip off its 2023 season last night (Tuesday) with a contest against Greater Boston League (GBL) rival Revere.
“We’re super-excited for the season to begin,” said an enthusiastic EHS head coach Riley Dunn. “We have a strong core group of returners who have been playing together for over two years now and continuing to gel. A few seniors are now healthy and will make some important contributions now that they are back.”
The 2023 Lady Crimson Tide will be led by a pair of captains, senior Kayley Rossi and junior Kaesta Sandy.
In addition to that duo, returning varsity players are: Emilia Maria-Babcock (Soph), Nehemie Lucien(Sr), Lamiah Wyzard (Sr), and Japhnie Pierre (Sr).
“We’re also very excited for the new wave of varsity players,” noted Dunn, a group that includes Malaica Guilaume (Jr), Taisha Alexandre (Jr), Gleidy Tejada (Jr), Tatiana Moran (Sr), Brooklyn Acevedo (Sr), Tanaeja Elie (Sr), Nehemie Joseph (Sr), Olivia Lavaud (Jr), and Malica Guilaume (Jr).
The Lady Crimson Tide scrimmaged two tough teams in Haverhill and Stoneham last week. “They are great programs,” noted Dunn. “A lot of hard work and hustle was seen on the floor by all of the teams.
“I’m very lucky to have all my coaches coming back,” Dunn added. “Their dedication and commitment to this program is immeasurable. My assistant, Courtney Meninger, JV Coach Michelle Fenelon, and freshman coach Haileys are all EHS alumni.
“It’s so important for our girls to learn from them and see them as role models, as we continue to help these girls become better athletes, but more importantly, strong and confident young women in this world,” Dnun continued. “I’m very grateful for my coaches. It is a TOTAL team effort this year.
“I’m very excited and this group has a lot of potential,” the coach added. “Everyday they show up and soak up the information like a sponge and are really working on competing with each other this year. Our focus is to compete every day.”
After last night’s opener with Revere, the Lady Crimson Tide will entertain GBL foes Medford tomorrow (Thursday) and Malden next Tuesday.
