The Carlisle Mosquito Online

· Matt Zezima, formerly of Bedford Road, is stationed with the army in Afghanistan and sends word that everyone on base is reading the Carlisle Mosquito."They all say it reminds them of home, even the guys from New York City." They particularly like to have it in hand, so every week several copies are sent overseas. What do they turn to first? "The Police Blotter, what else?"

Leave the car at home Sunday, May 20

Leave your car at home on May 20. Some of us at the First Religious Society will be walking or biking to the 10:30 a.m. church service instead of driving. The purpose of this very informal event is to raise awareness about our dependence on automobiles, and to get a little fresh air and exercise in the process. Our only goal is to have fewer cars in the FRS parking lot that morning. All members of the community are welcome to participate, and no advance sign-up or other arrangements are required. Contact Kathy Varney at the church office (1-978-369-5180) with any questions. We hope to see you on the road!

CCHS spring sports update of April 28
Senior co-captain Lisa Debruzzi cracks a double in C-C's recent win vs. Newton South. Lisa is widely regarded as the top catcher in the state. Uncommon at the high school level, Lisa independently calls every pitch for Kim Miner, enabling Kim to lead the state with a 0.0 ERA and CCHS to be ranked #1 by the Boston Globe.

On May 2, the Concord-Carlisle softball team played a fantastic game and came out with a win over Dual County League (DCL) rival Acton-Boxboro, 7-0. This was a highly anticipated game because last year C-C and A-B finished the season as co-champions of the DCL. Kim Miner of Concord had an amazing game, throwing a no-hitter all the way to the sixth inning. Senior Meredith Popolo played a strong game and had the first C-C hit coming in the third inning. Georgia Guttadauro scored the first of three C-C runs scored in the fourth inning. On May 4, C-C gained another win, this time against Weston, 8-0. Miner threw a perfect game with 14 strike-outs. On May 7, C-C beat Newton South, 16-1. Senior Eliza Jacobellis hit for the cycle, getting a single, two doubles, a triple and a home run.The mercy rule was invoked in the fifth inning. The softball team continues to be undefeated.

The boys tennis team also remains undefeated. On May 1, the team beat Lincoln-Sudbury, 5-0 and on May 4, beat Boston Latin, also 5-0. The girls tennis team beat Bedford 3-2, on May 2, but then had their first loss of the season to Boston Latin, 2-3 on May 4.

The baseball team won both their games last week beating Bedford 6-1 on May 2, and Boston Latin 8-6 on May 4.

On May 1, the girls lacrosse team came out with a win over Newton-South, 18-13. The boys team had an incredible week, crushing Newton South, 12-4 on May 1, and on May 3, they upset powerhouse Lincoln-Sudbury with a 6-4 win.
