Not a bad Sunday (or Saturday) at all…

Written on June 1, 2009 at 4:36 am, by Eric Cressey

It was a great Sunday all around yesterday.

First, my fiancee officially became a doctor.  Yep, I picked a good one.

Second, Cressey Performance athlete Dede Griesbauer won Ironman-Brazil, setting a course record by ten minutes in the process.  Congratulations, Dede!

Third, Lincoln-Sudbury came from behind to win their D1 second round playoff game, 8-7.  CP athletes Justin Quinn, Derek Lowe, and Erik Watkins all hit homeruns for LS, and Watkins won it with a single with two outs in the ninth inning.


Fourth, CP athlete Sahil Bloom got a win and a save in Weston’s D3 playoff win yesterday.  Sahil struck out nine and walked none in 6.2 innings of work – and went 3-4 at the plate.

Fifth, on Saturday, Wayland upset the #3 seed to advanced to the second round of the D2 state baseball tournament.

Sixth, Tyler Beede pitched a shutout in his team’s opening round win in the D2 state tournament on Saturday.

The week gets off to a good start today, as I’m picking up my new car, and a host of the college guys start training today as the New England Collegiate Baseball League kicks off.  And, we’ve got two CP athletes (who also happen to be good buddies and off-season roommates) going head-to-head in a AAA match-up.  Will Inman (Portland/Padres) will be facing Steve Hammond (Fresno/Giants) in Fresno tonight; I will be pulling for both to go eight innings of shutout ball and get no-decisions!

    Good stuff!

    My only Sunday surprise is that allergy season has officially started for me.

    Congrats on the car — let us know how she is!
