Baseball beats Suffield to win opener

After a very long wait, the Wilbraham & Monson Academy Baseball team started its 2015 regular season the best way possible, beating archrival Suffield Academy 10-3 April 13.

“It was a great win at Suffield,” Coach Jim Irzyk said. “Steve Fleury ’16 threw five strong innings, struck out six and had great velocity. We played very good defense the first five innings. We had clutch hitting by Anthony Garro ’15 and Shawn Boston ’15; very good at bats by Danzel Williams ’15 and RC Goodman ’15 . . . I believe they walked a total of five times; and Nelly Cotto ’17 came in and did a great job throwing strikes and getting outs the last two innings.”

Anthony and Shawn both had three hits and two RBI, while Tim Quinn ’16 added a pair of hits. The Titans plated three runs in the top of the first and never trailed.

WMA begins a very busy stretch, with five games in eight days. But as the Titans showed during its nine-game trip to Florida in March, they have the pitching to be competitive.

“The boys are ready,” Coach Irzyk said. “They know we’re going to compete and we’re capable of doing good things, with the Suffield game being a good example.”

 

Felchner wins 2 events at NE Championships

Wilbraham & Monson Academy’s Christina Felchner ’16 went to the New England Division III Swimming Championships looking to get her best times. Winning would be a bonus.

Christina earned a double-bonus.

Christina won a pair of events at this year’s championships, touching first in the 50-meter and 100-meter freestyle races March 7 at Canterbury School.

“It’s exciting,” said Christina, who had finished second multiple times at previous New England meets. “It was a little nerve-wracking. To me, winning isn’t everything. I just like to get my times down.”

Christina swam the fastest time in the prelims for the 50 before winning by .6 seconds in 25.19. Her best races, though, came in the 100. She posted the top time and her fastest time in the 100 prelims before doing the same in the final, finishing in 54.91 and easily winning by more than two seconds.

“When I got out of the water . . . it made my whole day,” she said.

Christina earned the team’s Coaches Award at the WMA Varsity Sports Ceremony March 3.

“I like helping the team. It’s fun,” said Christina, who set a pool record in the 50 free in 25.14 at a home meet December 10. “I like cheering on my teammates.”
