Danvers salutes seniors in style
By Jean DePlacido Salem News Correspondent
It was Senior Day at Tiggie’s Field in Danvers yesterday, and the home team wanted its three seniors to leave the field with a victory over Marblehead. Kendall Meehan, Devyn Downs, and Kacey Nestor got what their teammates hoped to give them as the Falcons had 14 hits in a 9-1 triumph. Click here for full Salem News article.
Danvers walks off with Corning Tournament title
For the third time in as many years, the Danvers softball team walked away from the Courtney Corning Memorial Tournament as champions. Yesterday, the Falcons rallied from a two-run deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning to top Bishop Fenwick, 6-5 with a walk-off victory in the title game. When it comes to this tournament, however, it’s more than just a day of wins and losses. It’s about honoring the life of Courntey Corning and the game that she loved to play. The tournament is held each year in memory of Corning, a standout Peabody athlete who was just 17 years old when she died in a car accident in January 2007.

Late surge sends Falcons into Div. 2 North semis
Playing until the final out is one of the oldest cliches in all of softball, but it also wins ballgames. Danvers has learned to do so throughout the regular season this year and carried the motto over into yesterday’s Division 2 North quarterfinal game against Reading. The Falcons rallied in the middle innings to take control of the game, trumping the seventh seeded Rockets, 4-2. “We’ve been saying it all year that it’s a seven inning game, you get 21 outs and you want to use them all,” said Danvers head coach Tara Petrocelli. “It’s tough going down 2-0 in the first inning, but you claw back and that’s what we do. We’re not flashy. We don’t hit home runs. We work and we take advantage of what we can.” Click here for full Salem News article.
