HANOVER — Senior Charlie Adams added to the legacy of the Hanover High boys soccer program by winning the New Hampshire Gatorade Player of the Year award on Monday.

Adams amassed 23 goals — one more than the Marauders allowed as a team — as Hanover grabbed the NHIAA Division I state championship last November. The awards started rolling after that: Adams earned a first-team all-state spot at midfield from the New Hampshire Soccer Coaches Association, then followed that up with All-American notice from the United Soccer Coaches.

He was also supposed to play in next month’s Twin State Lions Cup match before that event was canceled in April by the coronavirus pandemic.

Adams rewrote the school’s record book during his four years at Hanover, finishing with 64 goals, 54 assists and 118 points. He’ll take his skills to Brown University this fall as a member of the incoming recruiting class for the Bears’ men’s soccer program.

Adams is the sixth Marauder in boys soccer program history to win the Gatorade award for New Hampshire and the fourth player in the last nine years, following Eric Jayne (2011), Daniel Hazlett (2014) and Asa Berolzheimer (2016). Brothers Tommy Clark (1988) and Jamie Clark (1994) are Hanover’s other state Gatorade honorees in boys soccer.

GOLFHunnewell wins at Baker Hill

NEWBURY, N.H. — Carter Country Club’s Andy Hunnewell claimed the senior division title at the New Hampshire Golf Association’s season-opening Players Invitational tournament at Baker Hill Golf Club on Sunday.

Hunnewell posted a two-day, 36-hole total of 9-over-par 153 to win the title over Laconia’s Bill Everett by three strokes, with the home club’s Jim Jankowski third. The Lebanon native opened a three-shot lead with Saturday’s 3-over 75 and never let it get away. His two-round tally also left him tied for fourth place among everyone in the 31-golfer field.

Passaconaway’s John Devito won the overall crown at 1-over 145 (71-74). Hanover’s Pat Pelletier shot a second-day 73 to finish in second behind Devito at 5-over 149.

AUTO RACINGChristian wins CMP opener

CLAREMONT — Ray Christian III grabbed the lead with 10 laps to go and held on for the win in the Granite State Pro Stock Series’ Let’s Go Racing 100 on Friday night, the opening event of the season at Claremont Motorsports Park.

Christian stayed patient through the bulk of the 100-lapper before making his move. D.J. Shaw, Angelo Belsito, Gabe Brown and Joey Polewarczyk completed the top five. Claremont’s Luke Hinkley, the one Upper Valley driver in the field, won his heat race but left the main event after a mid-race caution.

CMP support division winners included Kodi Sabins (Pure Stocks), Eric Lanou (Six Shooters) and Dave Greenslit (Street Stocks).

The show was held without spectators because of New Hampshire’s coronavirus restrictions on large gatherings.

WOMEN’S HOCKEYDartmouth’s Rombaut goes pro

HANOVER — Former Dartmouth women’s hockey captain Christina Rombaut has signed a professional contract with MAC Budapest of the European Women’s Hockey League.

Rombaut, a Canadian, joins the Hungarian side after a four-year Dartmouth career that includes two stints as captain. The Rothesay, New Brunswick, native had a pair of goals and two assists last winter and finished her career with 37 points in 113 contests with the Big Green.

Rombaut didn’t miss a game in her Dartmouth career and was named to the Academy All-Ivy League squad in her last two years.
