Run Gloucester cancelled
The Run Gloucester 7 mile Road Race will not have a third year. The event was cancelled this week by DMSE Sports, the group that runs the event.
DSME Sports released this statement.
"We regret to announce that due to a number of reasons, primarily lack of major sponsorship for the second year in a row and overall limited interest, DMSE Sports and the Gloucester Fishermen Athletic Association have collectively decided it is not wise to continue with the Run Gloucester! race for 2012.
We are very disappointed to have to announce this, but it simply isn't prudent to continue with the event this year if we can't guarantee a successful race. For those few who have already registered for the race, we will be refunding 100% of your entry fee along with the processing fee within the next few days. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience."
For more information on the race cancellation please see Tuesday's Gloucester Daily Times.
No Hit Loss
Post 3 pitcher Adam Philpott was the ultimate tough luck loser on the mound Sunday in his team's matchup with Andover. Philpott tossed a no-hitter Saturday but it wasn't enough to win the game as Philpott allowed a single unearned run in Gloucester's 1-0 loss Saturday, Post 3 drops to 2-1 on the year.
Philpott needed just 84 pitches to get through six innings, he struck out five on the afternoon.
