Tinker to Pereira to the Big Dance
Christy Tinker, who wrote a weekly journal for us last year, was named the conference player of the week after leading Tufts to the NCAA tournament. Tinker, from Amity High, led the Jumbos offensively during the 2007 NESCAC Softball Championship, hitting .667 (6- for-9) with a home run, six RBIs and three runs scored.
She went 2-for-3 in all three games over the weekend, picking up a home run and three RBIs in Friday’s 11-2 victory over Wesleyan.
She plays in the NCAA’s starting Thursday at Rhode Island College.

Last week I wrote about West Haven’s Joe Pereira who will be playing hockey at Boston University next year. Look for Pereira to battle for ice time right away with the Terriers.
According to sources he was regarded as the fastest skater in all prep school hockey. Some people also ranked as the overall No. 1 prep school player in the east.
The SCC tournament schedule is out. Checkhttp://www.southernconnecticutconference.org/ for the details.
The high school volleyball rankings will be released on Friday. Check this blog to see if there’s any changes.
