---- — Fishermen knocked out

The Gloucester hockey team saw its state tournament hopes come to an end on Saturday with an 8-0 loss at the hands of Beverly Saturday at Salem State University’s Rockett Arena.

Gloucester (8-10-1) needed at least a tie to stay afloat but ran into a Beverly team that had a lot to play for as it clinched the Northeastern Conference North title with the win.

The Fishermen fought off elimination for the second game in a row Friday night earning a 3-2 win over Saugus. They finish up the season on Wednesday at home against Melrose (6:00 p.m.).

NEC All Stars

Northeastern Conference track and girls basketball all stars were announced last week and Gloucester was well represented.

The state tournament bound Gloucester girls basketball team had two players named to the all star team in senior captain Sophie Black and sophomore Julianna Costanzo.

Black and Costanzo were Gloucester’s leading scorers in the regular season averaging 13.6 and 11.5 points per game respectively.

On the track the Gloucester boys were awarded the NEC Sportsmanship award while Jacob Holscher (mile), Everest Crawford (1,000), Noah Mondello (2-mile), Matt Carpenter (600) and the 4x400m relay team of Mark Horgan, Jeremy Meunsaveng, John Curcuru and James King were all named All Stars.

Bianca Giacalone (300), Liz McCormack (shot put) and the 4x200m relay team of Elle Wierbicky, Timia Buckley, Gloria Kabulo and Giacalone were named All Stars on the girls side.

All of the Gloucester track all stars competed in the Division 2 State Meet Sunday at the Reggie Lewis Track and Field Center.
