The Revere High girls volleyball team continued its winning ways this past week, winning all three of its matches to improve to 7-0 on the season.
Coach Lianne Mimmo’s squad took care of two of their Greater
Boston League rivals, Lynn English last Wednesday and Chelsea this past Monday, with 3-0 shutout victories.
Last Friday’s win over GBL foe Medford proved to be a bit more of a struggle, with the Lady Patriots prevailing in five sets in a see-saw battle, 25-14, 21-25, 25-16, 23-25, 15-8.
Tassaya Dacosta provided 28 assists to her teammates. Gabriela De La Rosa accounted for 15 kills and Ayra Vranic had 12 kills to pace the Revere attack.
The Lady Patriots now will take on Malden, which also is undefeated, in a battle for first place in the GBL this evening (Wednesday) at the Revere High gym.
Mimmo and her crew then will take on another pair of GBL rivals when they entertain Everett on Monday and Somerville next Wednesday.
Two Shutout Wins for RHS Girls Soccer
The Revere High girls soccer team enjoyed a successful week, earning a pair of shutout victories over non-league opponent O’Bryant and Greater Boston League foe Lynn English.
This past Monday, the Lady Patriots traveled to O’Bryant High in Boston and came home with a 3-0 triumph.
The Revere goals were scored by freshman Nataly Oliva, Nahomay Galvez, and Catalina Chizavo. Lady Patriot keeper Nisrin Sekkat recorded her second career shutout.
“We had a lot of great play from our defense and many scoring opportunities vs. O’Bryant, who played us physically,” said RHS head coach Megan O’Donnell. “It was a solid team win.”
Last Thursday the Lady Patriots posted a 5-0 blanking of Lynn English. Galvez led the way offensively, finding the back of the Lady Bulldog net on three occasions for the hat trick.
Freshman Grace Rameriz and Samarah Paiva added a goal apiece. Sekkat earned her first shutout of the year in the net.
“We had great play from Ryesha Mezan, Jessica Galvez, Mycka Charles, Amina Chitaoui, Kimberly Doblado, Tiffany hoang, Luisa Khorsi, Yara Beleguendouz, Jennifer Duarte, Kathy Granados, and Kaylin Oliva,” said O’Donnell.
The Revere girls were scheduled to meet GBL rival Everett yesterday (Tuesday) and will trek to Saugus of the Northeastern Conference on Friday. They will host Malden next Tuesday.
Revere/Malden Golf Team Gets Back in the Swing
The Revere/Malden co-op golf team opened its season this past week, recording a 42-26 victory over Greater Boston League rival Everett and dropping a close 40-32 contest to Medford.
Among the highlights for coach Brandon Pezzuto’s squad was a 6-3 victory by Revere senior captain Ryan Willett in the match with Everett.
Revere freshman Frankie Annunziata, playing for the varsity for the first time, won both of his matches against his Everett and Medford counterparts.
RHS junior Ollie Svendsen tied his match against Medford.
Pezzuto also lauded the play of Revere sophomore Johnathan Wells.
“Johnathan has shown much improvement as a result of his hard work this off-season,” said Pezzzuto.
Other members of the team include junior captain Ryan Coggswell from Malden; junior captain Saul Kruckenberg from Malden; and Malden sophomores Dante Federico and Bo Bogan.
RHS Cross Country Teams Take On Medford
The Revere High girls and boys cross country teams took on Greater Boston League rival Medford last Wednesday.
On the girls’ side, freshman Olivia Rupp ran a strong race with a personal record (PR) pace to finish in second place.
Newcomers Daniela Santana Baez and Salma El Andalosy also ran PR paces. Stephanie Reyes, who keeps pushing herself to improve, also turned in a PR effort.
“We came away with a loss, but just lacked the depth needed to surpass Medford,” noted RHS head coach Katie Sinnott. “Our leaders, Rocio Gonzalez Castillo and Yasmin Riazi, are working hard and supporting every new runner.”
The final tally showed Medford winning by a score of 23-39.
The full results for Revere were as follows:
Olivia Rupp – 2nd overall, 20:50
Rocio Gonzalez Castillo – 3rd overall, 21:11
Yasmin Riazi – 9th overall, 24:58
Salma El Andalosy – 11th overall, 26:58
Daniela Santana Baez – 12th overall, 29:39
Stephanie Reyes – 14th overall, 30:14
On the boys’ side, the Patriots fielded only two runners.
Junior Captain Zaraius Bilimoria ran very well to finish in a time of 19:13, which was good for 12th place.
Senior captain Brayden Shanley, who also ran a very strong race, was right behind in 13th position with a clocking of 19:17.
“Our ninth grader, Luca Shanley, was hurt, so hopefully he’ll be ready for our next race,” noted RHS head coach Mike Flynn.
Both the girls and boys teams were slated to travel to Lynn Classical today (Wednesday) and to Lynn English next Wednesday.
