BOUCHER GETS FIRST WIN AT PJ

New Pope John XXIII High School head basketball coach Leo Boucher began the next chapter of his stellar 20-plus year coaching career, guiding the Tiger squad to an opening-night 71-46 pounding of Lowell Catholic last week. The 3-time “Coach of the Year” (and former St. Anselm standout) landed on his feet at PJ after the sudden closing of St. Clement High last year, where Leo established a legacy as an astute Xs-and-Os tactician. With a 2013 Division 4 state title on his resume, Boucher hopes to bring an already strong PJ program to new heights. GO TIGERS!!!
