Canes, Wasps Sending 11 Stars
Castleton, Vt. — Matching 11-0 seasons have netted the Harford and Woodstock high school football teams a total of 11 selections for tomorrow’s Vermont North-South Senior Bowl at Castleton State College.
The Hurricanes will contribute six players to the South roster and the Wasps will send five to the game, which begins at 12:30 p.m.
Hartford, which extended a 2½-year winning streak to 26 games with last Saturday’s 35-27 win over BFA-St. Albans in the Vermont Division I title game, will send Joe Wood, Josh Claflin, Jon Carlson, Michael Dulac, Nolan Frechette and Donovan Kelly to Castleton. The Hurricanes’ championship was their third in a row and fifth in six years.
Woodstock is sending Hunter Schmell, Ed Doton, Will Emmons, Travis Gault and Jalen Peterson to the all-star contest. Now on a 20-game winning streak, the Wasps claimed last Saturday’s Division III title game over BFA-Fairfax 38-18 for their second consecutive state crown.
Luke TanCreti, Windsor’s strong-armed quarterback, will be the Yellowjackets’ sole representative for the South. Oxbow’s Justin Rasnic and Tyler Davidson were also chosen to join the South roster.
NHIAA All-Staters Named
West Lebanon — Hanover High’s first foray into NHIAA Division I boys soccer came one game short of a state championship, but it did net a first-team all-stater in Brendan Barth, who will be joined by Marauder teammate Ian Strohbehn in next summer’s Twin State Lions Cup matches. The two were part of a healthy contingent of Upper Valley athletes who earned spots on the New Hampshire Soccer Coaches Association all-state teams this week.
Barth, a midfielder, and Strohbehn, a forward, were key elements in Hanover’s run to the D-I final, where the Marauders fell to Manchester Central, 2-1. Barth was Hanover’s sole first-team selection in D-I; defender Evan Greenwald and forward Daniel Hazlett made the second team, and Strohbehn was joined by midfielder Xavier Tchana on the honrable mention squad.
Lebanon will send a pair of players, goalkeeper Chrissy Drake and forward Emily Kehoe, to the New Hampshire roster for the girls Lions Cup contest in 2013. Drake was also selected D-II’s first-team goalie; Hanover back Emily Acker, Marauder midfielder Georgia Lubrano and Raider forward Trina Scheie made the second team, and Kehoe was joined by Hanover freshman forward Kelly Brigham on the honorable mention list.
The remaining Upper Valley contributions to the NHSCA all-state field include:
Division II boys: Lebanon — midfielder Donncha Coyle, first team and Lions Cup; goalie Will Sanborn, second team; midfielder Jeff Purdy, second team; defender Ryan White, honorable mention; forward Evan O’Reilly, honorable mention.
Division III boys: Kearsarge — goalie Casey Laughinghouse, second team; forward Andrew VanHooydonk, honorable mention. Mascoma — back Tom Engelhart, honorable mention. Stevens — midfielder Daniel Croteau and back Kieran Cochrane, honorable mention.
Division III girls: Kearsarge — midfielder Shannon Hallenborg, second team; back Haley Brook, honorable mention; forward Gemma Bready, honorable mention. Stevens — back Kelsey Barker, honorable mention. Newport — midfielder Daniel Hubert, honorable mention.
Division IV boys: Woodsville — backs Matt Abrams and Kevin Briggs, second team; forward Dan Roy, honorable mention.
Division IV girls: Woodsville — goalie Abby Simano and forward Dee Martin, second team; backs Ally O’Shana and Nara Burgess, midfielder Paige Martin and forward Louisa Noble, honrable mention.
Brooks 1, KUA 1

North Andover, Mass. — Kimball Union scored in the final seconds of regulation and took host Brooks to a penalty-kick tiebreaker before falling in the quarterfinals of the New England Prep School Athletic Council tournament on Wednesday.
Brooks took the lead in the second half, but Elliot Maker notched the game-tying strike with two seconds left to force overtime.
Kimball Union finished the season with a 10-5-2 record.
Dartmouth Trio All-Region
Princeton, n.j. — Three members of the Dartmouth College field hockey team have earned inclusion on the National Field Hockey Coaches Association’s all-Northeast region team.
Sophomore Ali Savage, junior Olivia Quaglia and senior Lisa Masini all made the squad not only as Big Green selections but also as the only Ivy League players chosen for the squad. They mark the largest class of Dartmouth field hockey stars to make the NHFCA all-Northeast team in program history.
Savage added first-team all-region honors to her recent first-team all-Ivy recognition. Quaglia and Masini both made the all-Northeast region second team after making the all-Ivy first team as well. Masini will also represent Dartmouth at the 2012 Senior Game at Old Dominion University in Virginia later this month.
