Odds and ends: Two-time defending Division 1 finalist Pinkerton was hit hard by graduation, losing Eagle-Tribune defensive MVP Gannon Fast, Eagle-Tribune All-Stars linebacker Jackson Clark, defensive back Gennaro Marra and offensive lineman Robbie Fahey and top contributors like Nick Lombard, Allen Gault and three-year starting QB Aiden Goujon. ... Running back/defensive back Brady Day has committed to play baseball at Kansas State. The Eagle-Tribune All-Star hit .440 with 24 runs and 15 RBIs in the spring. He also averaged 8.8 points and hit 40 3-pointers in basketball last winter. ... Promising freshman Cole Yennaco is the son of area baseball legend Jay Yennaco (Pinkerton class of 1995), who was drafted in the third round of the 1995 MLB Draft out of high school by the Boston Red Sox. The two-time Eagle-Tribune baseball MVP (1994-95) advanced to triple-A with three different organizations. ... Kicker Brandon Roy made two field goals and 19 extra points last fall. ... Gavin Auger is not a member of the legendary Pinkerton lacrosse family.
