Townie Sports

That’s a Wrap

Another Townie who put the finishing touches on a fine collegiate hockey career was UMass-Dartmouth rugged defenseman Patrick Wrenn. Pat emerged as the Corsairs enforcer where opponents learned the crease area was not a fun place to be. While accumulating team-leading penalty minutes getting this message across (as well as sticking up for teammates), Pat had an uncanny offensive flair for making plays with the game on-the-line.

Rowing into the Future

Townie rower Halle Alitz, who immersed herself in the sport while at Boston Latin High School, posted a stalwart career for the Miami Hurricanes in both the 4-person and 8-person boats. Like happened to so many other athletes, the COVID-19 pandemic cut short her 2020 spring season.

Under the Radar…and then Some

With the COVID-19 pandemic putting a huge damper on the Class of 2020 athletes, let’s not overlook the sensational story Salem St. graduate Rose Sullivan left on both the lacrosse and hockey programs. Despite a shortened spring lacrosse season, Rose is amongst the all-time career Lady Viking leaders in ground balls (9th all-time) and forced turnovers (8th all-time) in addition to posting 30 goals and 13 assists. On the ice, Rose (along with fellow Townies Danielle Kelley and Jacqueline Sindoris) has her name amongst the leaders in most every statistical category.

All’s Well That Ends Well!!!

Another talented Townie collegiate athlete who wrapped up his career was UMASS-Amherst soccer striker Christian Labeck. Christian’s perseverance allowed him to emerge as a team leader and one of the elite forwards in the Atlantic-10 Conference.

Bison No More

Nichols wide receiver Eddie Evers is another example of the plethora of Townie talent at the collegiate level. Eddie, who graduated as a Dean’s List student for the Bison, epitomizes the “hard work gets rewarded” mantra and far surpassed anyone’s expectations on the gridiron.
