Tewksbury High baseball team made the post-season tournament with a 9-1 win over Dracut.
Upperclassmen are supposed to come up big when the chips are down and that's exactly what Tewksbury High senior pitcher Ryan White did Tuesday afternoon at Strong Field. With his team running out of chances to qualify for post-season play, White came through with a complete-game masterpiece, holding Dracut to just one run on three hits through seven innings, and leading Tewksbury to a much-needed 9-1 win over the visting Middies. The victory clinches an MIAA state tournament berth for the Redmen for the first time since 2008. "I'm so happy for these kids," said TMHS coach Ron Drouin afterward. "Every one of our seniors deserves this. They've given so much to this program over the last three or four years, it would have been a shame to see…

Valiant comeback attempt falls short as TMHS baseball team loses to Peabody, 9-6.
As his team packed up its equipment after Friday afternoon's frustrating 9-6 loss to Peabody High School, Tewksbury High baseball coach Ron Drouin struggled to hold back his emotions. Drouin had just watched his team spot the visting Tanners a seven-run first inning lead, then claw its way back into the game, eventually closing to within one run in the sixth inning, only to fall short and suffer its ninth loss of the season. "It was a good baseball game to watch and I'm proud of how far we fought our way back, and all the feel good stories feel good," Drouin said. "But the bottom line is, if you're gonna climb the mountain, stick the flag in. And I'm sick of climbing the mountain and getting to the top and not putting the flag in." The …

McCarthy leads Redmen on the mound and at the plate.
For Tewksbury High senior Sean McCarthy, the first month of his final season in a Redmen baseball uniform had not been what people had expected out of the returning Merrimack Valley Conference all-star. A disciplinary suspension for a non-baseball incident had forced McCarthy to miss his team's first five games, and the right handed pitcher/first baseman had returned just in time to join his teammates in a mid-season swoon that saw the Redmen drop three out of the first four games McCarthy played in. But all that changed on Friday afternoon, as McCarthy threw three innings of strong relief to pick up his first victory of the season, and also went three-for-four at the plate in leading TMHS to an exciting, come-from-behind, 7-6 victory over…
