Guerra, O'Shea, Notre Dame College bests reigning Champ UC Davis for D1AA title

Mount Carmel's Bobby Seymour proving to be a tough out
Mount Carmel senior Bobby Seymour has been on a season-long tear at the plate. It's one that even Seymour, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound first baseman, has a difficult time explaining. "I've had some really good stretches, but I don't remember anything like this," Seymour said. "I'm feeling pretty good. I'm just trying to keep things simple. I think the biggest thing is that I'm just more mature at the plate. I'm not trying to do too much." Mount Carmel coach Brian Hurry is pleased to see Seymour's hard work paying off. "He really is locked in," Hurry said. "He's had an outstanding year. He's been focused. I know how hard he works and it's good to see it paying off." With the Catholic League Blue in full swing, Seymour is looking to extend his success at the plate. "This is my favorite time to play," Seymour said. "The Catholic League Blue games are the ones you can't wait to play. You get up for these games."
Caravan’s Hoey picks Indiana on Signing Day
Mount Carmel senior wrestler Dillon Hoey can’t pick the best thing he likes about wrestling; he loves every aspect of the sport. A Beverly resident and St. Barnabas Elementary School graduate, Hoey closed an impressive high school career by signing on April 12 with Indiana University (IU) in Bloomington, Ind., to continue his academic and athletic career. “When you’re out there wrestling, it’s just you,” Hoey said. “If you make a mistake, you can’t blame it on a teammate or your team. I love the discipline. It takes so much mental toughness to keep the discipline, work out and make weight. I’ve also met some of my best friends through wrestling.”
