Berlin Girl's Golf plays great but loses first match of the year to rival Farmington.



Farmington 155, Berlin 166

The Berlin Lady Redcoats Golf Team tasted defeat for the first time this season on Thursday losing to a dominant Farmington team 166 to 155. The highly anticipated match did not disappoint with four players, two from Farmington and two from Berlin, breaking 40. 

Sisters Jenn and Kelly Whaley lived up to expectations shooting outstanding scores of 36 and 38 respectfully. Jenn Whaley's 36 was good for Medalist honors. Berlin was led by Julia Kemmling with a 38 and Emily-Anne Deutsch with a 39. Other Berlin scores included Victoria Fagan with a 43 and Ashley D'Attilio with a 46. Farmington's record is perfect at 12-0, Berlin is now 11-1.

"I expected Jenn and Kelly Whaley to shoot low scores and they did. What I didn't expect was for Farmington's number three and four players, Michelle Sangeloty and Haley Campbell to post their best scores of the year, 41 and 40," Berlin coach Jim Barnes said. "A team score of 155 is about as nasty as it gets.  Congratulations to George Devita and his girls. They really showed up big today.

"I'm very proud however, of how our team competed. We battled all the way.  I told the girls to hold their heads up, 166 is a great team score. We have a lot of positives to take away from this match. Julia continued her outstanding play and Emily-Anne had her best round of the year. I know Victoria, Ashley and Emily Stickel are all capable of better rounds than they played today. We get Farmington on May 30, this time on our home course at Timberlin. Today, Farmington put everything together. Maybe we can do the same on the 30th."


Berlin 95, Morgan 42

Girls track finished the regular season with a win at The Morgan School in Clinton 95-42. 

"We had planned most of this week's practices as recovery so we were looking for our times to start to drop in preparation for the Championship Meets coming up," Berlin coach Steve Soucy said. "Our 4x400m relay team of Alex Carbonell, Kristen Madeia, Kaylene Sylvain and Catherine Voelpel ran a season best 4:10 in their victory.  Catherine also posted season bests in the 400m (58) and 200m (26.06) winning both."

Nicole Grieco posted a season best performance in the 3200m finishing a strong second in 12:50.

"This was also the last meet for many of our seniors," Soucy said. "Three of our seniors finished their time at Berlin High with career best performances. Briana Cass qualified for class MM with a Triple Jump of 32'. She needed exactly 32' to qualify and made it on her final attempt. Carly Cohen and Emily Baroni finished the 3,200m race dropping their times by nearly a minute each. 

"All three of these girls have worked incredibly hard not only this year but over their entire four years and were able to finish with their best ever performances. As a coach, I can't ask for more than that, they all put everything they had into their final race or event and to see them succeed was a really great feeling.  All three were really happy and a little bit surprised by what they were able to do.  I couldn't be happier for them."


McGee 3, East Hampton 0

The McGee Baseball Team kept the winning streak going by defeating East Hampton by a score of 3-0. 

Andrew Charboneau was fantastic on the mound pitching a one hit shutout.  Charbonneau had his no hit bid spoiled with two outs in the seventh inning.

Jake McCarthy, Jake Loiselle, Jared Zima each had important hits in the Spartans three-run first inning. Brenden Ebert and Nick Naples played well defensively.
