Defending state champion North Reading is 12-0 after a 5-2 victory over visiting Georgetown in its most recent tilt.
En route to a state championship win last season, the North Reading High School baseball team posted modest numbers at the plate. This year, the Hornets have found their offensive groove, and the results in the standings have been more of the same so far. The defending champions have yet to lose this year, though they were tested during a 5-2 victory over visiting Georgetown on Tuesday afternoon. According to head coach Frank Carey, last year the Hornets had just eight extra base hits as they compiled a team batting average of .280. To date, North Reading has over 30 extra base hits and a team average of over .380 as they have put together a 12-0 record.

A Title IX complaint could be filed if the new high school lacks a softball field.
Right now, the plan for the new high school calls for keeping the current baseball field and building another one. The plan does not include a softball field. Should the Secondary Schools Building Committee reconsider that decision? The local group North Reading Citizens for Equality thinks so. For the last 12 years, the high school softball teams have practiced and played at the Little School. According to School Committee Chairman Mel Webster, the committee had never heard any complaints about the situation until recently. Members of the North Reading Citizens for Equality group believe that the softball team is not being treated fairly and hoped that with the construction of the new school, a softball field would be built on campus. …

With the passing of Tim Chaloux, the win was not as sweet.
North Reading baseball coach Frank Carey is officially the second coach in the state to see a 700th win.

The Hornets beat Newburyport, 9-1, in a Cape Ann League game Tuesday marking Carey's 700th win. Carey is only the second coach to reach the milestone according to the Herald. He was showered with ice water after the game, but other than that Carey didn't want any to participate in any other celebrations. He could barely get speak without getting choked up about Chaloux, the Herald said. “I don’t really feel like celebrating right now. Maybe in a couple of months I’ll appreciate this, but we have other things to worry …
