Cumberland harriers looking strong in 2011

August 24, 2011

Cumberland High coach Tom Kenwood consistently has had top-level squads over his nearly two-decade career heading the boys’ cross-country program.
With several key runners back this fall, including outstanding junior Trevor Crawley, this fall’s team may be among his best.
Kenwood lists Chariho Regional, Bishop Hendricken and La Salle Academy as the schools that will more than likely be battling it out for team supremacy, but he ranks his Clippers right there in the upper-echelon of finishers at the state championships in early November.

August 23, 2011

Chris Costantino made sure not leave any traces of doubt.
Thanks to a strong showing this with the Laconia (N.H.) Muskrats of the New England Collegiate Baseball League, any and all speculation the St. Louis Cardinals had in the 19-year-old Lincoln native fell by the waste side. The fact-finding mission might have encompassed much of the summer, but the Cardinals realized that Costantino’s talents exceeded those of a typical 43rd round selection, which is where he emerged during this past June’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
