The full 2019-2020 Hornets Calendar from the Manchester-Essex Regional Middle and High Schools. All three seasons, JV and Varsity, Boys and Girls.

This year, Team Lombardi topped the twenty-one foursomes of men and women who participated in the 11th Annual Manchester Club-Cape Ann Savings Bank Golf Tournament on Monday, September 9 at The Meadows in Peabody, a challenging golf course. Brett Crane’s team placed second, followed by Scotsman Jimmy Clyde’s group. Club President Bruce Heisy, in awarding the prizes, noted that the tournament’s first all-woman’s team placed well-up in the ranks.

The Hornets are not playing in the Cape Ann League this season but are tackling (pun intended) several new teams in an independent schedule. A low-number roster last season led to the Hornets playing schools with much deeper squads. This year, they will play with similarly sized benches.

In the first of a regular Cricket sports feature, Bob Masella chatted with Harry, who next month will be off to play Division-I baseball at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. Masella learned the team’s success came with lots of teamwork and, not surprisingly, years of preparation. 

The Manchester-Essex Varsity Baseball team and Coach BJ Weed snagged a historic win on Saturday when they took the MIAA Division 4 State Final against Tahanto Regional of Boylston—the program’s first-ever state title.  The Hornets were victorious in the championship, ultimately securing a 5-2 lead over their opponents. 

It was a fantastic end to a great season.  Finishing the year, Manchester-Essex has a 20-5 overall season record while Tahanto Regional is 17-7 on the season. It was a game that won’t be forgotten, and it marked a joyful end to the seniors’ high school athletic careers.

The Hornets sailing team finished the Spring sailing season on a high note. In a two-day competition at the MIT Sailing Pavilion on the Charles River, the Hornets pulled off a remarkable recovery and surged into second place at the end of the Massachusetts State High School Fleet Racing Championship.
