ST. JOSEPH'S COLLEGE
Women's basketball coach Mike McDevitt passed the 400 milestone in career wins earlier in the 2012-13 season. The accomplishment went unnoticed, perhaps, because the low-key McDevitt wouldn't call attention to the number. Maybe the college is waiting for McDevitt to reach 400 victories at St. Joseph's. Twenty-two of his career wins did come when he was the head coach at the University of Southern Maine a few years back when Gary Fifield took a short retirement.
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MAINE
Freshman Anthony Pistone (Farmingville, N.Y.) was named the Pilgrim Wrestling League Rookie of the Week after a pair of wins last weekend. Wrestling at 165 pounds, Pistone beat Torin Zonfrelli of Worcester Poly, 3-2, in the match that gave the team win to USM. Wrestling at 184 pounds, he pinned Taylor Lozier of Plymouth State for his fifth pin of the season and helping USM to another dual-meet victory. Pistone is not related to longtime USM coach Joe Pistone.
Three wrestlers are ranked in the top six in the New England Wrestling Association individual rankings: Mike Arangio, 6th, 125; Logan Russell, 6th, 157; Dan Suarez, 3rd, 285. Russell is 20-7 overall and 13-3 in dual meets with a team-leading 12 pins. Suarez is 18-3 overall and 12-1 in dual meets and Aragnio is 16-3 with a 12-3 record in dual meets. Logan is from Bath, wrestled at Morse and is one of the team captains.
USM hosts the LEC/Alliance Championships in indoor track and field on Saturday. The USM women have swept the championship the last 12 seasons. The New England Alliance championship meet features schools representing the Little East Conference and the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC).
