And for the guys, the Putnam Wolfpack looks to be rolling into their QVJC tournament. They secured the No. 1 seed May 24 with a win against Pomfret . Derek Coderre (I refer to him as the “Joe Toree of Middle School Baseball”) has his middle squad in tip top shape with two games left to play in the regular season this week. May 29 they played  against Lisbon on an away game.  They play Canterbury at home June 1.
The last time the Wolfpack faced both teams they came out with two victories. The Wolfpack is 8-2 at this time. Jack Rindge, Avery Pederson, Carter Morrisette and Cooper Livingston have performed well on the hill for the Pack and Zack Belleville behind the plate has held his own this year. The infield lead by the middle tandem of Livingston and Karson Bates have shown good chemistry when the two are together. Ben Northrop anchors first base and when Morrisette isn’t pitching he’s anchored 3rd base down. Pederson and Rindge along with Nick Renshaw patrol the outfield. It seems that coach Coderre has a real good chance of getting four more wins. That will get the coach and team another plaque for the gym hallway — and to make it a back to back championship season.
The Putnam Clipper achieved what they said they would do from the first week of practice: Compete and make States. Last week the Clippers went into extra innings against Wheeler and came away with a loss .
But May 23 the Clippers traveled to Groton for a double header that put their season on the line. And the Clippers came away with two wins. That got them to nine wins overall for the season, finishing their independent season at 9-11.
That allowed the Clippers to head down, May 29, to face a well-balanced Old Lyme team with a 13-7 record and ranked #11 in the State S tournament
