Athletic Fields Renovation Update from CC at Play - Upcoming Votes

CC at Play has an approved, vetted plan for renovating the lower athletic fields at CCHS to increase durability, multi-sport playabilty, high-impact safety and all-season, all-weather access.  This project is long over-due and will benefit many, many athletes.  To move, forward voters need to approve funding at Town Meeting this month.

There is opposition to this project and we need the athletic community to turn out in support.  Please forward this email and encourage your (voting age) players, parents and supporters to attend Town Meeting to Vote:

Yes on Monday, April 13th Article 30 (Concord)

Yes on Monday, April 27th Article 14 (Carlisle)

Additionally, Concord voters will be asked to vote to ban synthetic turf on public land in Concord.  If passed, this will stop our effort to turf the CCHS football field so that it can be used for multiple sports.  It could also prevent the Doug White turf fields from being re-turfed in the future.  This would be catastrophic to our youth and high school sport programs.  We urge Concord voters to Vote

No on Article 4 Tuesday, April 14th (Concord)

Our sports community rose to the occasion in 2008 to build the Doug White turf fields.  Let’s do it again!

Thanks, and for additional information please visit www.CCatPlay.org

Gamechanger

FYI, CCHS Varsity Softball will use Gamechanger, a web based application which provides real-time game updates to users who wish to follow games over the web.  Game box scores are created as well as automated game summaries.  Statistics over the season are also available.

You can connect to the CCHS Gamechanger page by clicking on the "Gamechanger" title to this article.  Some information is available for free, but the service is most interesting if you pay a monthly fee.  This you can do for whatever period you wish, for example the 2-3 months of the season.

CCHS Players and Alumni in the News

Attached is an article about Galen Kerr and the Varsity Softball team that appeared in the Boston Globe - Metro West on Sunday. A very nice article that highlights how hard the team works. 

link to Boston Globe article

Also, below is a link to 2 video clips of Georgia Guttadauro class of 2010. She is a junior at UPenn and played on ESPN this weekend in the Regional Qualifiers for the Div 1 tournament. She was given a lot of shoutouts during the Arizona game and made the top 10 plays for the day.....they lost to Arizona and have been knocked out, but Penn qualifying for the tournament is quite an achievement! 

ESPN clips:  https://plus.google.com/106952361390582498422/posts/FZXXeiDUaB1

 Last.... but not least....  Emily Beineke class of 2009, is a senior and Captain of the Tufts Softball Team. Her team is currently 45-3 and playing for the Div III Championship on Monday. (note, Lisa sent on Monday, but I did not post until Tuesday, Tufts won!)  No ESPN footage.... but here is a photo of her cheering on a teammate and if you want to read more about Emily and her teammates, here is a link to the Tufts website http://www.gotuftsjumbos.com/sports/sball/2012-13/releases/20130519rqz6bd .

 I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with these girls and to see them develop as players and as people.

Hope you enjoy!

Congrats to Georgia Guttadauro (CCHS '10) and Penn Quakers

This past Saturday, CCHS alumna Georgia Guttadauro, now first baseman for the Ivy League champion Penn Quakers, hit a clutch 2-out 2 run homerun against Arizona in the first round of the NCAA playoffs.  Our congratulations go out to Georgia and her team for an outstanding year and showing in the playoffs.  The hit gave the Quakers a 2-0 lead against the heavily favored Wildcats.  Unfortunately the lead did not hold, with Arizona tying the game with 2 outs in the 7th, then winning in extra innings.  

Penn posted video of the post-game interviews, with Georgia, her coach Leslie King and the Penn pitcher,  Alexis Borden.  The video is located here.

At Bats or Buddy Tournament this weekend!

This weekend the CCHS Varsity and JV teams will be participating in the At Bat for Buddy Tournament.  The tournament raises money for the At Bat For Buddy Scholarship Foundation which has awarded college scholarships to worthy high school softball players annually since its inception in 2010.  In 2013 the foundation will award 2 $1,000 scholarships.  For more information, please visit http://www.atbatforbuddy.com.

The games will be played at Bishop Fenwick High School in Peabody, MA.  On Saturday, the JV and Varsity teams play Billerica HS at 9 AM.  On Sunday the Varsity team returns to play Beverly HS at noon.  There will be a number of teams participating in the tournament this year: in addition to CCHS, Beverly and Billerica, there will be Bishop Fenwick, Danvers, Shawsheen, Reading, St. Mary's and Winthrop.

The foundation was founded to honor Ed "Buddy" Henry and continue his legacy of supporting young athletes.  Coach Henry was a highly successful and influential softball coach at Bishop Fenwick.  He coached CCHS Varisty coach Lisa McGloin at Fenwick in the '80s and she returned as an assistant coach for him in the '90s.  In May of 2010 Coach Henry died after a long illness. 

On May 17 the Salem News posted a nice article about Coach Henry and the tournament.  It is accessible at http://www.salemnews.com/sports/x1169352592/Late-great-Fenwick-coach-Henry-remembered-in-upcoming-tourney.

Coach McCaffrey-Clark Named Top Chemistry Teacher

On Thursday evening, April 25, the New England Institute of Chemists held its annual awards dinner where it named Coach MC as the recipient of its NEIC Secondary School Teacher Award for Massachusetts. Since 1994 the NEIC has identified and named those chemistry teachers it considers most outstanding.  Today six teachers are recognized each year, or one from each New England state.  This is a great achievement, yet it is not even the first time Coach MC has been recognized as an outstanding teacher.  In 2010 she was named to the Aula Laudis Society, a "Hall of Fame" for HS chemisty teachers that is awared by the northeast section of the American Chemial Society.  Congratulations coach!
 
Here is Coach McCaffrey-Clark, with former student and now fellow CCHS chemistry teacher, Rebecca Rotti holding her NEIC Teacher Award.

Coach Lisa McGloin Wins 250th Game with Concord-Carlisle

image_name2
 
With a 15-3 victory over Beverly this past Sunday, Concord-Carlisle softball coach Lisa McGloin secured her 250th win of her career at CCHS. The previous week McGloin registered her 200th Dual County League win with a victory over Lincoln Sudbury.
 
 McGloin began her coaching career at CC in 2000 with her team posting 22-3 mark. McGloin's teams have won 20 or more games eight times during her tenure with the high water mark coming in 2001 when the Patriots finished with a record of 25-1.
 
Now in her thirteenth year at the helm, McGloin's overall record stands at 250 victories against just 37 losses. Her Dual County League mark is even more impressive where the Patriots have accumulated a mark of 200 wins and eight losses. McGloin's teams have won 11 DCL championships, won the Massachusetts North Sectional six times and have appeared in the state semi-final six times. McGloin was selected Boston Globe Coach of the Year in Division II in 2003 and the Lowell Sun Coach of the Year in 2009.
 
Fittingly, McGloin achieved this mark at Bishop Fenwick High School in a tournament to honor her mentor and former Fenwick coach Ed Henry who passed away in May, 2010. McGloin played for Henry at Fenwick from 1985-1988 before continuing her stellar career at the University of North Carolina.
 
McGloin herself has mentored hundreds of players at CCHS, many of whom have continued their playing careers at collegiate level.
