Having coached tennis at St. John's for 22 seasons, Metropolis led the Eagles to one of their best seasons in recent history, winning the Division 1 North championship before falling in the state semifinals to Needham. This season marked the sixth Div. 1 North title for Metropolis and the first since 2002. "We had some good talent," said Metropolis, who has guided the Eagles to four state championships in his tenure. "We knew we had a shot at winning the state title, and that's always exciting." Metropolis was especially proud of his team's two wins over Lexington once during the regular season and again in the Div. 1 North final. "Beating somebody twice isn't always that easy," Metropolis said. Metropolis admits that his secret to such a successful career can often be found before each respective season begins. "If you want to win a state title, you have to come in ready," Metropolis said he tells his players. "Don't expect to get better during the season because it's so short. Come prepared, come ready." He also noted that the flexibility allotted by a smaller conference schedule in the Catholic Conference allows him to line his team up against the strongest nonconference teams the state has to offer. His numbers speak for themselves: 22 seasons, a 33561 overall record including a 1602 mark in the Catholic Conference six Div. 1 North titles and four state titles. GIRLS TENNIS COACH OF THE YEAR Entering his sixth season as head coach, Stonecipher knew his Marblehead girls tennis team would be strong this spring. When he saw newcomer and eventual Salem News Player of the Year Ashley Noyes had transferred from Pingree to her hometown high school, he knew they could be great. The Magicians proved Stonecipher prophetic, winning the third Northeastern Conference title under his watch and going all the way to the Division 2 North final, where they eventually fell to unbeaten powerhouse Winchester. "Having Ashley at No. 1 made everyone else that much better playing down one spot," said the 35yearold Stonecipher, who loses just one starter from this year's 192 squad. "Our year was all about winning the NEC title and reaching the North final to face Winchester which is exactly how it turned out." His lists his favorite matches of the season his team's two wins over arch rival Swampscott ("it's always a good season when you can check those matches two off as wins" he said) as well as the Magicians beating Manchester Essex for the first time, 41, on the Hornets' home courts. Stonecipher is married with two young sons and lives in Marblehead. He is a guidance counselor at the Marblehead Middle School and will become Dean of Students there this fall. The father of four daughters who played on numerous state championship teams at Bishop Fenwick under the late Ed Henry, Lyman is completely tuned in to the program's illustrious history. So no one could blame him for coaching with more determination than ever this season. The Crusaders hadn't qualified for the state tourney in three years, so Lyman couldn't have been happier as Fenwick went 175 with Division 1 North state tourney victories over Everett and Malden. It was the team's best postseason performance since 2005. "I thought our team exceeded expectations," said Lyman, 57, a Salem resident who coached at Wilmington High for 12 years and took over the Fenwick program in 2001. "It was very gratifying to see what the kids did. The kids did it with class, too." The Crusaders did it with veteran players who peaked, especially senior pitcher Taylor Ahearn of Salem, who went 175 with a 1.07 ERA and 194 strikeouts. Lyman has had strong coaching ties to Bishop Fenwick. He's been an assistant football coach at the school since 1991, working under various head coaches. Overall, he's been coaching football (Shawsheen and Austin Prep before Bishop Fenwick) since 1976. He deflects a lot of the credit for the softball success this season not only to his players but to assistants Jackie Collier, Tom Begin, Paul McInnis and Jamie Kidney. Collier, a former star at Bishop Fenwick and Endicott College, was the only paid assistant. Since Toomey took over as Marblehead girls' coach two years ago (he also coached the Magicians in 2005), the program has been highly successful. Amazingly, the team won three meets in the final race thanks to their outstanding 4x400 relay team of Madeline Piela, Maura Tubridy, Paige Ferrucci and Courtney Maher including a huge Northeastern Conference win over league powerhouse over Beverly that led to a league title. This spring Toomey greeted the largest number he ever had with lots of freshmen and sophomores. The squad was very balanced with strength in the sprints and distance events. Seniors led the way, but the younger girls also contributed to another very successful season. "I think our team had as much talent as anyone, but what was so impressive about this group was that they loved to race and compete. When you get a bunch of athletes excited to compete, anything can happen," said Toomey. "Coaching at Marblehead is very special to me, and they have certainly made me a better coach. I have 70 girls ready to go; and we expect the other's best. It will be sad to see our seniors go, but the future looks very bright." Since Braz took over the helm 12 years ago, he has put Peabody on the national map. Once again this season the Tanners kept getting better and better, culminating with some school record breaking performances at the big meets. They excelled at the New Balance Outdoor Nationals led by junior Zack Grube, who won the Emerging Elite high jump and the outstanding third place 4x800 relay team. Peabody finished the year with a 61 record not losing again after a season opening setback to Marblehead (Peabody's first defeat since joining the NEC four years ago). They avenged that loss with another NEC championship, scoring 152 points with seven first place finishes to walk away with the title. "We started by losing to a better team; Marblehead was more prepared, more intense, and better coached. As a result we regrouped with a mission to be better prepared for every practice, meet, and challenge ahead," said Braz. "The team got sharper, coaches worked harder, and a winning formula was exhibited for the remainder of the dual meet season. "I am very proud of the studentathletes and staff for identifying, the necessary adjustments, and their unconditional hard work. We successfully finished the championship season on a very positive note."
