“Townie” Sports Update

April 14, 2011

Congratulations to Matignon swimmer Meaghan Doherty for her selection as an All Star in the Catholic Central League…I got a chance to see the Community Center Youth Basketball League playoffs.  Wow!  Karen Sullivan, Ginny Mansfield and the coaches and volunteers did a sensational job.  The gym was packed with lots of parents and spectators and the action was fast and furious.  I didn’t realize just how much “hoop” talent abounds in Charlestown…Kudos to the Under-10 Girls hockey team for capturing the Squirt championship with a thrilling 4-3 triple-overtime victory over Waltham.  Player-of-the-game forward Charisse Flanagan (2 goals) tallied the game winning goal and teammates Micaela Sindoris (goal, assist) and Leslie Schwartz (2 assists) peppered Waltham’s standout goalie with numerous quality shots.
