Strong Week for RHS Volleyball
The Revere High volleyball team won three of its four matches this past week to improve to 10-7 on the season and clinch a berth in the post-season state tournament.
After dropping a 3-0 contest to undefeated Lynn Classical last Monday, coach Lianne Mimmo’s squad reeled off three straight triumphs against Greater Boston League opponents.
Last Wednesday, the Patriots shut out Lynn English, 3-0. Two days later, Revere edged Medford, 3-2. This past Monday the Revere squad celebrated Senior Night in fitting fashion with a 3-0 blanking of Chelsea.
“Each set in our match with Classical was competitive, but we were unable to hang onto our leads,” said Mimmo. “In the contest with Medford, which is a very good team, we had lots of great contributions from Gianna Mahoney, Tassaya DaCosta, and Ayra Vranic.”
Mimmo and her squad will close out their regular season this coming week. They will play at Malden today (Wednesday), trek to non-league opponent Winchester on Friday, and travel to Everett next Wednesday.
Golfers Compete Against Lynn Classical
The Revere/Malden co-op golf team competed against Lynn Classical this past week at the Gannon Municipal Golf Course in Lynn.
Seven members of the Tornado Patriots took part in the match: Alexio Trichillo, Saul Kruckenberg, Jacky Summers, Bo Bogan, Cristian Lynch, freshman Chase Branzell (who competed in his first varsity match and earned a 4.5-4.5 draw with his Classical counterpart), and Colby Parker.
The final score showed Classical coming out on top by a score of 47-25.
Coach Brandon Pezzuto and his crew were scheduled to take on Lynn English yesterday (Tuesday) and Medford tomorrow (Thursday).
Bizarre Cross Country Race for RHS teams
Both the Revere High boys and girls cross country teams competed against Malden on the latter’s home course at Pine Banks, but poor marking along the course resulted in members of both teams losing their way and ultimately running much further than they should have.
“Over half of the team got lost due to some ambiguous markings along the course, resulting in girls running almost 3/4 of a mile extra,” said RHS head girls coach Katie Sinnott. “As a result, three of my top five finishers finished in places that wouldn’t have really been their place.
“I believe we may re-score the results here at the league meet since these are rather unofficial,” added Sinnott. “The best I can make out for a score is Malden 27-Revere 35, though it may also be Revere 27-Malden 28. There is one time that I am not sure whether it was for a Malden girl or not.
“If no one had gotten lost on the course, I believe we would have won,” continued Sinnott. “Rocio Gonzalez was leading the race until the point of getting lost, but that then caused her and two other runners to go the extra distance, pushing their places back at least four or five spots.
“Despite getting lost, these runners did not give up and pushed through the rest of the course. Knowing you are already out of the race and already behind, but not giving up on it, is huge,” Sinnott added. “This shows how mentally tough the team is and the grit and heart that these girls have. So despite some disasters along the route, I am proud that the girls didn’t quit. Now we are more motivated to go out strong in the league meet!”
The individual results for the girls were as follows:
Carly Bennett – 25:41
Rocio Gonzalez – 29:01
Yasmin Riazi – 29:01
Christy Ly – 29:30
Samantha Solis – 34:52
Maajda Louaddi – 34:53
Jessica Medina – 46:20
Coach Mike Flynn’s boys also took a wrong turn along the course. “Unfortunately, three of my five runners got lost on the course, so we couldn’t score it,” said Flynn.
Both the boys and girls teams are scheduled to host Chelsea today (Wednesday) and will trek to Somerville next Wednesday.
Mixed Week for RHS Boys Soccer Team
The Revere High boys soccer team engaged in four matches with Greater Boston League opponents in the past 10 days, dropping two, tying one, and winning the fourth.
In a 2-1 loss to Malden, Keny Guerrero Alvarez scored the Revere goal, assisted by Brayan Henao.
After dropping a hard-fought 1-0 decision to first-place Everett and deadlocking Somerville to a nil-nil standoff, the Patriots broke into the win column with a 3-1 triumph at Lynn Classical last Thursday.
Junior Felipe Maia scored two goals for coach Manny Lopes’s squad, with teammate Jefferson Pineda Mejia also reaching the back of the Classical net. Captain David Paiva, Kevin Rivas Flores, and Keny Guerrero-Alvarez all were credited with assists.
Lopes and his crew were scheduled to play at Lynn English yesterday (Tuesday) and will host Medford tomorrow (Thursday). They will entertain Chelsea next Tuesday.
