Barrett sets a record
WESTFIELD — Westfield State guard Lucy Barrett, a former Mount Greylock basketball standout, was named to the All-Tournament team in the Eastern Connecticut Tip-Off Tournament. Setting a career high helped get her there.
She scored 28 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor in a 104-88 win over SUNY-New Paltz in the first game of the tournament. Barrett was 9 for 9 from the foul line and 5 of 6 from three-point range.

Trinity's defense held Barrett to 13 points. She was 3 for 13 from the field and 1 for 8 from outside the arc.
MCLA loses softball coach
ALBANY, N.Y. — The search is underway for a softball coach at MCLA because Jamie Trudeau has resigned to take the head coaching position at Division III Sage Colleges.
"Coach Trudeau brings a wealth of playing and coaching experience to Sage," athletic director Sandy Augstein-Collins said in a statement.
Trudeau was 11-22 last year at MCLA and 26-44 in her two years at the helm.
In 2015, Trudeau guided the Trailblazers to their first NCAA Division III tournament berth since 1995. MCLA beat Salem State 6-0 to win the MASCAC title, but then went 0-2 in an NCAA sectional at Williams College.
