Kerrie Bourque

Sloane Brazina of Rutland Street, a CCHS sophomore, won the MIAA Division I Diving State Championship at Harvard University on Sunday, February 22. Overall, the CCHS Girls Swim/Dive team placed fourth in the competition.

• Kerrie Bourque of Hutchins Road, a student at Brimmer and May, was named to the NEPSAC C/D West (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Central Division West) All Star team based on votes received from opponents’ coaches. Bourque has also been named to the All-IGC team (Independent Girls’ Conference). The girls’ varsity team defeated Cambridge School of Weston 42–40 to win the IGC finals on Friday night.

A junior, Bourque has given credibility to the term “scoring point guard.” Bourque has been a work horse on the court, averaging more than 29 minutes per outing. She led the league in scoring during the regular season.

Carol Malcolmson spoke with the Mosquito recently about the flowers planted in memory of her husband (See page 1) that her children Geordie and Hazy helped plant. She notes that Geordie was in 7th grade when the flowers were planted and he is now a student at the UMass Medical School, while her daughter Hazy works in corporate law.
