Lisa Zanchi has seen first-hand the results of the Pan-Mass Challenge.
North Reading resident Lisa Zanchi is proof of the power of the Pan-Mass Challenge. In 2006, Zanchi's cousin Molly was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Her family members decided to form a team and ride the PMC. Zanchi was unable to join the team that first year, but the following year, she joined and she will be riding for the fifth consecutive year this year. "That first year there were six people," said Zanchi. "And it grew to 20 people in one year. This year we'll have about 10 people riding."

Second-half surge propels Hornets to semifinals.
After being forced to come back against Austin Prep in its first-round game, the North Reading boys lacrosse team needed to make a statement. The Hornets did just that against Archbishop Williams on Sunday. In front of an enthusiastic home crowd, the Hornets erupted for 10 goals in the second half to bury the Archies 15-6 in a Division 3 quarterfinal at Kenney Field. “They’re a good team,” North Reading Coach Chuck Campobasso said of his squad. “I think some people overlook them a little bit. We had to match Archbishop Williams’ intensity, kind of find ourselves a little bit, and at the end of the day play some basic lacrosse.” Senior star, and Eastern Connecticut State recruit, Cody Carbone led the charge for the Hornets in the second …
