LONDONDERRY HIGH SCHOOL
Senior Nick Beaton has had a very strong start to the season in both singles and doubles. More importantly, he has brought a strong sense of team and enthusiasm for excellence to the team this season.
Junior Cassie Burbine is off to a great start (2-0) with both perfect 8-0 wins against her opponents from Memorial and Spaulding. With her doubles partner Amanda DePasquale, she holds a 2-0 record at number 1 doubles with 8-0 and 8-1 scores in consecutive matches.
Erin Coutts had six goals and an assist in the season opener last week as the Astros knocked off defending Division 1 champion Concord, 18–6, at home. Against Portsmouth, Erin had two goals and two assists in a tough defeat.
Matt Marchman had three key hits in the Astros' season-opening, come-from-behind, 9–7 win against Alvirne. With his three hits, Matt drove in 4 runs. Against Londonderry later in the week, he had some key hits and plays defensively to help spark a comeback that fell just short.
