Shawn Kenney Commits to USM

Shawn Kenney (Braintree, MA) had an outstanding year at Bridgton Academy as a star member of both the ice hockey and baseball team. He has recently committed to the University of Southern Maine where he will be a two sport Husky.

Shawn could not be happier with his choice calling it “an opportunity to play two sports which I never thought I would have.” He continued saying, “everything about the school clicked for me. I am going to play the two sports I love, while receiving a quality education at the same time.”

Coach Izaryk sees the potential in Shawn saying, "Shawn is a winner in every sense of the word. He's a national champion hockey player here at BA, and has been a huge contributor on the baseball field to our success this spring. He plays the game with poise and intensity, which will serve him well in the very competitive Little East Conference. I am very excited to send Shawn to USM and Coach Flaherty, I think his speed, defense and table-setting ability at the plate will give him a chance to contribute right away."

Wolverines Win Season Closer

While the Wolverines started the spring season off with a rocky start, they pulled it together to end on a nine game winning streak with an overall record of 9-4. The Wolverines faced off against Kents Hill for their final contest of the season and ended the game 10-0 in just five innings.

Christian Lavoie (Hopkinton, MA) threw all five innings for BA without giving up a single run. Not only did Lavoie pitch, but he stepped up to the plate earning his first hit of the season. Other Wolverines who did well at the plate included Jason Hudson (Raleigh, NC) who went three for four with a double. Shawn Kenney (Braintree, MA) had a multi-hit game which included a double, and Dan Concannon (Everett, MA) tallied a double of his own.

Here are a few shots from the game...

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the Wolverines! It was a great season!!

Baseball Chops the Lumberjacks

The baseball team traveled to Hebron Academy to take on the Lumberjacks in hopes of keeping their streak alive. The rain held off, and the Wolverines won their eighth straight game 11-3. Ben Callahan (Exeter, NH) went the distance on the mound throwing a solid game. Shawn Kenney (Braintree, MA) had three hits including a double. Austin Wood (Naples, ME) also had two hits while Brad McGovern (Haverhill, MA) added a hit and two runs scored.

Up next the Wolverines will travel to Southern Maine Community College to play on Wednesday at 4:00 P.M. They then have their final game of the season at home on Friday against Kents Hill at 4:00 P.M.
