TWO CELEBRATIONS IN ONE

Sport:   Posted: July 3rd, 2008 by Tom Nolette

July 3, 2008

The Charlestown High School boys track team and St. Mary’s girls hockey team continued the MBR On The Air Summer of Champions Wednesday by joining Mike Shalin and Danny Ventura at the Marina Bay studios of 1510, The Zone.

“This was the first of many shows that celebrates the accomplishments of two champions,” Shalin said. “We have a lot of teams to honor before the fall sports season gets going and Danny has booking two teams per show. It makes for twice the fun – and both these teams were a lot of fun.”

Charlestown’s Kristyn Hughes, whose boys’ team won the All-States, was in during the first hour, along with athletes Kareem Cutler, Sheldon Allen, Omar Aden, Yaovi Jondoh and Kamel Riley – a great group of kids who talked about their marvelous rise to the top. Cutler impressed the hosts to the point where he was invited back during the summer as a co-host.

“The kid does a great job on the air,” Ventura said. “He’s a natural.”

Pagliuca, who also won a state title with the Lexington girls’ softball team (which will also be honored in the near future) was stuck in traffic with key players Abby Gauthier, Caitlin Gottwald and Christen Hart. Before they arrived, St. Mary’s athletic director Jeff Newhall phoned in from his car to talk about the team and his coach.

The hockey team joined the Plymouth North baseball team as an undefeated honoree on the champion Summer of Champions.

“What they did was special,” Ventura said. “Going through any sport without a loss is special and these girls did it in style.”

Gauthier noted the end of the Patriots’ undefeated run was something that was brought up before the final games. But nothing could stop these girls.

The players sent a birthday shout-out to teammate Bridget Mini, who was invited to call in. Her dad, Bob, was soon on the line, with Bridget then joining her teammates on the air.

Two-time Herald All-Scholastic Alison Walshe, who finished 31st in the recent U.S. Women’s Open in Edina, Minnesota, opened the show via the hotline. Still an amateur, she tied Lorena Ochoa and finished two strokes behind Annika Sorenstam in the tourney.

Later in the show, new Newton North girls’ coach Hank DeSantis joined via the hotline.

The Summer of Champions was set to continue Saturday morning (10-12) with North Cambridge Catholic Division IV boys’ basketball champion and the Everett High Division 1 Super Bowl football champs.

Continuing what coach Dwayne Follette called his team’s “victory tour", the Division II State Champion Plymouth North baseball team was honored Saturday as MBR On The Air’s Summer of Champions continued on 1510 The Zone.

Follette, accompanied by outgoing seniors Evan Martinsen, Keegan Grabhorn and Jared Canney, spent an hour with Mike Shalin and Danny Ventura at the station’s Marina Bay studio – as accolades for a 26-0 team continue to pour in.

The team will be honored again, this time by its town, during Plymouth’s July 4 celebration.

“Imagine that – Plymouth, Massachusetts on July 4; it doesn’t get much better than that,” Shalin said. “We only had three players from the team with us in studio, but you can tell this is a great group of kids – and it takes a great group to pull off a 26-0 run.”

The show also welcomed, via the hotline, Lincoln-Sudbury baseball coach Kirk Fredericks, who is coaching the Ruffnecks during the summer, new Billerica athletic director Dave Lezenski, and Boston College associate director of athletics Barry Gallup.

As the wildfire that is this new and exciting show continues to spread, Shales and Danny V. will welcome a pair of champions this Wednesday. Charlestown High boys track coach Kristyn Hughes and some of her All-State champion boys team will be in for the first hour, while Frank Pagliuca, who coached the Lexington High School girls softball and St. Mary’s girls hockey teams to titles, will join the program for the second hour. He is expected to be joined at least by hockey star Abby Gauthier.

Word of the show, just completing its first month on the air, continues to spread like wildfire throughout the Massachusetts high school community.
