LONDONDERRY 2019 STATE CHAMPIONS!
The 2019 Londonderry Lancers are the Division 1 state champions! Lead by a tough mental approach that never gives up, strong pitching and solid defense- the team came through when it mattered most!
Nolan Lincoln had one of the most dominating post-seasons since Tommy Corey in 2014! He beat #1 Concord in the semis by giving up one run, and shut out #6 Bedford in the finals. The 1-0 score was only the second time in the history of the NHIAA with that score in a final game! Nolan kept Bedford off-balance, they had no clue what was coming and couldn’t adjust when it did come.
Zack Luongo turned in a dominant defensive performance in the outfield that saved numerous runs out there! On offense, the Lancers ran into the top arm they have seen in the post-season in Trevor Anibal! He matched Nolan pitch for pitch, but it was the difference of one hit that decided this on the offensive side. Nick Cote reached on a 2 out single, stole second easily. Sean Cavanaugh worked the count and was able to get a single to RF as Cote took off to steal 3rd! The rbi single was the difference!
The coaches are proud of this team. They worked hard, had their ups and downs, and didn’t give up. It was a pleasure to coach this team and we wish the seniors a successful life!
