Madol Staying at Trinity

(Updated 6/6/10)
When the NHIAA hoops season concluded in March, questions began to circle about whether certain players would be returning to their schools next season or if they would be going the prep route. Three big names in particular were rumored to be possibly headed to prep schools in David Madol (Trinity), Connor Green (Bishop Guertin) and Steve Spirou (Pelham). It's now official, all three are staying put for their senior year.

Madol was considering transferring to the Holderness School, but instead will indeed return to Trinity for his senior season.

"It's too late now" explained Madol. "The deadline for me would have been back in February."

Madol is currently the #1 ranked player in the NHIAA Class of 2011. With him officially returning, the Pioneers instantly become one of the favorites in Division-I next season. Also remember that Zach Stevens should be fully recovered from his torn ACL innjury by the time the season starts.

Incidentally, the other favorite would have to be BG, now that we know for sure that Green is returning to the fold. Another player who who rumored to possibly be going prep was freshman sensation Dimitri Floras. Floras however, will also be staying in the NHIAA and returning to Merrimack High next fall.

These three star players will be returning to the NHIAA, but there are three notable players who are transferring to prep schools. Kevin O'Connor is leaving Stevens High for St. Paul's, Michael Lombard is leaving Pelham High for Proctor Academy and Tate Jozokos is leaving Kingswood Regional for the Governor's Academy.

Below is the projected 2010-2011 roster for both Trinity and BG:

  1. Madol should be number 1.He is one of the few that plays hard on both offense and defense.

  2. Does Anybody know who got the bedford gig.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Word on the street is that Bedford will be coached by John Langlois who is former coach of Newmarket in the 80's, Somersworth, and just recently spent this season at the collegiate level at Northwood (FL) working under Rollie Massimino.

  4. head to head starting line up
    Holler, Kesty, Green, McClung, McCarthy
    vs.
    Lafond, Hunter V, travis/Zach S, Madol, Aluko

    The top 2 staring fives in the State on my opinion.
    I feel that BG's bench isnt as good as last year, but Trinitys looks very good

    ReplyDelete
  5. No way Holler,Kesty,and Mcarthy start.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Based on talent, Holler and Kesty should start. But Mignault won't start them, based on loyalty to his senior players like Pzyzoka, Cuipa, and Remillard.

    ReplyDelete
  7. don't worry who starts at bg,everyone plays.Their bench will be deeper then last years.

    ReplyDelete
  8. don't forget folger,and wenners for bg.two senior big men.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Remillard was named a captain,so you would think there would be a spot for him.

    ReplyDelete
  10. How can you forget about Mike Kelly?Plenty deep.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Pyscho and remi at guards,2 very good defensive guards.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Remember, this is just Jeremy's opinion.He is on the outside looking in.People in the program know who the players are.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Lokks like bg is going to have lots of depth again.

    ReplyDelete
  14. chartrand and paul shouldn't be overlooked,two very good guards.This is one heck of an athletic team.Far and away the deepest team since the coach has been at bg.

    ReplyDelete
  15. lafounds going to central next year. Descoteaux Dickson and Viscarello are fighting to start as point guard next year.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Saw Brad Holler at Boston Shoot out at BU this weekend, Friday night had 13 on 4/6 shooting way beyond the arc and a couple of key steals, excellent defense and ignited a second half comeback for elite mass rivals win,Today in a losing effort to the Albany city rocks the kid was electric led all scorers with 19pts, 5/7 from beyond NBA range and kept the Rivals in the game till the end (they were missing players today it seemed), Whether he starts or comes off bench for Migs this kid is a big time pick up for BG on both ends of the court and stretches defenses with his unlimited range.Javon Williams also played big for Mass Rivals this weekend, and Floras was good Friday night as well (not there today)Knew Williams and Floras were good, but Holler was game changing good this weekend and seems to be the real deal.

  17. SILLY BOY'S...................BASKETBALL IS FOR MEN.........WHEN WILL YOU ALL LEARN........... IT'S NOT WHO START'S !!!! IT'S WHO FINISHES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Two of my favorite John Wooden quotes."It's not so important who starts the game, but who finishes it", and "you can't let praise or criticism get to you.It's a weakness to get caught up in either one".

    ReplyDelete
  19. Who is going to take the other spot on the bg side? Would it be Matt preskinis or Steve tuscuno.

    ReplyDelete
  20. also for that spot you have austin saremi and paul spinney

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jeremy - Wenners and Folger will definitely be on the BG roster. No doubt about it. They were on the team last year and will be used for their physicality and rebounding. Migs will carry 15 guys. The guys fighting for the last few spots are Preskenis, Chartrand, Corbin, and Toscano.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Last three are all Pelham kids. Pelham would have a real good team if they went there.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Most coaches would pick toscono over chartrand and pick Corbin over preskinis.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Mignault likes to go with the older guys, that have been loyal to him. That's why he picked Chris Lamb this past year. That would favor Preskenis, who is a great kid, and paid his dues as a junior on JV this year. But he's long and has some skill, and could actually contribute in some games.

    Some tough choices for Migs though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hoop season is a long way off folks,no need to get your panties in a bunch.Summer ball will sort all this out.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Its too bad toscano a pretty good player wont see major minutes till hes a senior if they have brought new kids in.

    ReplyDelete
  27. they didn't bring new kids in... New Kids decided they wanted to get the education and experience that BG brings. No one is bringing in players..

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wouldn't be surprised to see toscano transfer out of bg if he doesn't make varsity. Kesty didn't make varsity his soph year and he was upset so he left. Toscano has talent also so I could see him pulling a kesty on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  29. No doubt kids like toscano, kesty, holler all want to play college ball, so when kesty and holler made a good decision to come to BG why wouldn't Toscano leave. He would only start his senior year whereas at Pelham he would start junior and Senior probably, but then again i dont see holler and kesty starting this year either even though talent may be there. So migs has some things to plan.

  30. My God, when did the NH Notebook turn into the BG Notebook?

    A lot of keyboard tapping for a basketball program that hasn't won a state championship since 1983.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 731, when was the last time your team won?

    ReplyDelete
  32. 7:31,

    Since the author of the site put BG into his story about BG, including a roster, Why shouldn't BG people be posting?

    Winning a title is not the criteria for posting. If it were, then only 4 boys teams a year would be allowed to post.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 8:05 and 9:11: Good responses, but my team has won a championship this century, not last century.

    ReplyDelete
  34. 1029,and the name of that school is?

    ReplyDelete
  35. 10:29 lol, so your new criteria for being able to post comments on this blog is being part of a state championship team ?? That's a brilliant idea. Are you saying that only people that won a state championship have a right to express their views about the game of high school basketball?

    ReplyDelete
  36. The BG lax coach says it best in today's telegragh,you have to check your ego at the door if you want to play for a top program.I don't blame people for being jealous of what TOJO has built in football,Cameron in lacrosse,and now what Migs is building in hoops.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hey 1029, How many seasons did John Wooden go before he won his first at UCLA? What you fail to understand is if BG doesn't win it next year,who cares? The kids love playing for Migs,and that is the bottom line.I am so glad to hear your team won it this century,you must be so proud.

    ReplyDelete
  38. guertin has an unfair advantage.They are a school full of jocks.Just about any sport boys/girls.How many championships have they won this past year? It is not fair because they recruit kids, they should play in the catholic league in Mass.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 8:04
    Salem is not a school full of Jocks and they win plenty of titles in Div1 even. There is no advantage or disadvantage. Look at Guertins Track team, as a team they won the title. As individuals at the meet of champions, they did not do so well for Golds. Same can be said for football, no superstars, just a buch of above average players that feast on D2. Nothing to be jealous about. That lacrosse team that was supposed to be 'all world' lost to two teams locally in NE. Not that great I guess. NH is not a Lacrosse state, so dominating in NH is no big deal. Kind of like Salem winning all those Volleyball games. Not really a big deal. That crazy football streak that is national news, now that is something, you need to be special to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  40. NH is probably has more kids playing college lacrosse than any other sport in this state.

    ReplyDelete
  41. 12:37
    If true, and I doubt it, that would probably be because really, as a whole, lacrosse has not caught on anywhere. It is definitely an inner circle sport. I wouldn't even know if all of these local D2 and 3 schools that most of our atheletes go to have lacrosse as I never ever see anything in the news. Do you mean more kids playing D1 college lacrosse than any other sport?

    ReplyDelete
  42. lacrosse is huge in nh.Jeremy is missing the boat by not covering it.Much more popular then baseball.

    ReplyDelete
  43. bg's 2 losses were to a new jersey team that just lost in their state finals,and duxbury the number 1 team in mass.1131 last time I checked new jersey is not in new england.

    ReplyDelete
  44. EXETER VS BG IN LAX FINALS AT STELLOS WED NITE.

    ReplyDelete
  45. bigger than Baseball? MLB vs Lacrosse have a pro league? I mean I do not see that but good job to BG for gaining some exposure and getting kids to the next level.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This century instead of last century? Now, that was a funny post..... and so true BG fans.

    ReplyDelete
  47. At most high schools these schools have trouble fielding baseball teams but they have 50-70 kids in their lacrosse programs. You cant tell me NH lacrosse is not more popular than NH baseball.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Funny how every post,pretty much turns into a BG blog, doesnt matter the subject. You guys have alot of time on your hands, must be that great BG education.

    ReplyDelete
  49. 343 this post was about bg.

    ReplyDelete
  50. HaHa Lacrosse bigger than baseball. Now that is funny. Lets push soccer next. Within the lacrosse circle, lacrosse is huge I'm sure.

    I personally, nor anyone that I personally know of, have never even see a SINGLE game. I just asked 12 people here at work (time to kill) and none of them has seen a game either. Now, that is HUGE!!. Absolutely everyone I know has seen a baseball game in one sense or another. Lacrosse bigger than baseball, that is rich!!

    You guys need to focus on the championship game tomorrow. It seems that the arrogance level is so high that the Pinky score was only 8-4, with a single goal scored in each of 3 periods/qtrs/rounds. Maybe that title is not a guarantee like the Basketball title was... oh wait... that's right, sorry I forgot about the basketball thing.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sorry 343,but this is a NH high school SPORTS BLOG, and the truth is Bishop Guertin will be mentioned quite a bit because they are usually quite good in any sport played in the NHIAA.Perhaps you should spend a little more time touting your school instead of ripping BG.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've never seen a lacrosse game either. It appears similar to field hockey. Its probably fun.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I know in Pelham their lacrosse is much better than their baseball at high school level and they just started youth this year and their baseball youth leagues are decemated. Pelham once dominant in baseball 10 years ago is no longer a baseball town during the spring but a lacrosse town. Maybe 4:19 needs to get out more and stop hanging around with the old yuppies. Lacrosse is the single fastest growing sport in the country. Those are the facts.

    ReplyDelete
  54. 4:31
    Not only is it off the charts, but it is off the blogs. I just went to NH Sports Page and NH Sports Forum and nothing. I did find soccer though. That makes for a lot of ignorant people.

    ReplyDelete
  55. 4:51
    You really need to let people know its so popular then, its a well kept secret. LOL. I just went searching for 'HS Lacrosse anything' in NH and found nothing at all. There is an LAXPower site, but it is national. Seriously, you guys are part of a private lacrosse circle, similar to soccer (the most popular youth sport in the US by the way). At this time, Lacrosse and Soccer are only popular to those that play, it is what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  56. LOL, its a game in which they give you a stick and its legal to hit people with it. What more would you want in a sport!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lacrosse is one of the oldest sports in the US as it was played by the American Indian. Great sport and very popular in our town. Very popular at the college level also - I've seen Sports Illustrated write about it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Just because the blogs don't cover it,doesn't mean it's not popular 528.You really should get out more.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 528, my son plays baseball,and it is pretty common knowledge amongst all the parents that lacrosse has overtaken baseball in popularity.Just because Jeremy has not covered it,does not make it a fringe sport.Go to the finals wed and see what I mean.If I knew it was such a fun physical sport years ago,my son would have had a stick in his hand instead of a glove.The funny thing is I am a huge baseball guy ,so for me to be giving kudos to lax is saying something.

  60. BG GIRLS STATE CHAMPS IN LAX TONITE.

    ReplyDelete
  61. How many kids are playing basketball in college in NH to how many kids are playing lacrosse in college? A lot more scholarship players out of lacrosse. Thats a fact.

    ReplyDelete
  62. 8:57
    Jeremy is not the only one that does not cover it. NO ONE covers NH HS lacrosse. What is so hard to understand that it is still only popular with the players and those involved with those players. Baseball is certainly on the downturn at the youth level over 12, but it is still mainstream. Lacrosse is on the upswing, but it is still not mainstream and never will be more than likely. It has been around for ever as someone pointed out and has just not caught on. If it was as popular as you peeps try and make it sound, I would certainly see coverage somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  63. 10:34
    Even if that was true, what does it have to do with the popularity of the sport?

    9:39
    Congrats BG girls

    8:21
    If it is not on Blogs or the News etc., how is it popular? Not too sure I understand that. I have no doubt that the people involved like players, parents, family and so on love it and find it exciting, but the same can be said for soccer. Would you say that HS soccer is a popular sport?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well ESPN obviously does not get it. I mean if its not Mainstream why would ESPN have it on TV. I am willing to say Baseball overall at all levels except youth right now is the most popular. But remember those youth will be in high school in a few years and college after that. Hell baseball is americas past time how many americans are actually playing professional baseball.

    ReplyDelete
  65. 120 boys on 4 bg lacrosse teams,total boys at bg is 400,you do the math.Just a tad bit more popular then soccer or baseball.I am surprised Jeremy doesn't cover it, the socio-economic base for lax tends to run on the wealthy side,hence sponsors to be found for this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  66. 7:22
    So, BG is representative of NH? At Salem, they can barely field a JV and Varsity team. Also, you can't have 120 baseball players. Its kind of like basketball, small numbers with very very good players not making it. Using your math, Lacrosse might be the most popular sport period. "wealthy side"... lol, I see BG posterss claiming that they are not wealthy... you blew thier cover... lol.

    ReplyDelete
  67. 120 boys on 4 lacrosse teams at BG? No big deal. Just because a lot of them can walk, chew gum and play lacrosse at the same time doesn't mean it's impressive with the numbers. Lacrosse is only popular to those who play. A lot of other people just go yawn, yawn, yawn when it comes to lacrosse.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My knowledge of lacrosse is extremely limited, but it seems like a very exciting, fun sport from an outsider's perspective. When lacrosse is on TV, I would much rather watch that than baseball. It's a high energy game that seems to involve great dexterity and skill to play. It's certainly a sport on the rise that I would have liked to try if it was more popular/available to smaller schools.

    ReplyDelete
  69. 10:34 FLAWED FACTS:

    I just saw the WMUR9 report on the 99 NH athletes going to D1 colleges. #1 was track but it didn't get much press because it isn't really that much of a sport outside of Oregon. #2 was Soccer with 10, #3 was field Hockey and they didn't even mention lacrosse although two boys were mentioned. Pinkerton had 3 boys going D1 Football though and SHS a couple. There were quite a few baseball D1 kids. You lacrosse peeps need to stop making stuff up, really.

    Video is available on WMUR website.

  70. 440 d2 offers scholarships.

  71. thats cause tons of the lacrosse kids are either going for other sports because they are that multifacetated or prep school

    geesh

  72. 6:22
    I was only responding to the post that said that most D1 scholarships out of NH are for Lacrosse. That was so far from the truth it wasn't funny.

    *****************

    Gosh - I'm sure that those who are playing basketball, baseball, football, track,...etc... only played one sport or never attended a prep school. Lacrosse is growing in popularity, but it is not the sport of choice for the majority of high school atheletes just yet.

  74. TIME TO UPDATE THIS BLOG SITE. THE CLASS OF 2010 IS GRADUATED,OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW.GOOD LUCK GRADS.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Here is a list of kids from one NH AAU team that is already committed to play lacrosse at their respective schools. The list includes 7 Division 1 players, 2 Division 2 players and the rest D3. Very impressive. Someone might want to tell WMUR to research before they post stories. Remember this list is only for NH Tomahawk players I am sure there are others I am missing. Anyone know others. Lacrosse is one of top if not top. So you WMUR peeps need to stop falsefying info to the public.

  77. 12:19
    The post was not about 'kids playing sports in college' it was a response to "Lacrosse gets the most D1 Scholarships" for NH athletes. Your list does not apply to the conversation. Not even sure what point you are trying to prove with it. Lacrosse players go to college? Is that your intent? I can give you a list of non athletes going to college, even bigger than that.

    ReplyDelete
  78. 142 not my list,but if you paid attention the list was kids playing lax in college.Once again,what school do you represent?CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE.

    ReplyDelete
  79. These players are playing lacrosse at these schools.

    ReplyDelete
  80. 5:33
    Again.... the post was a response to someone saying that LAX earns the most D1 sports scholarships in NH. That was simply not true. So now, for some reason, someone is posting every single LAX player that is going to college. You could make the same list for any sport, or even any non-sport. LAX supporters just don't seem to get it. This is my last post on the subject, you can't argue with ignorance.

    ReplyDelete
  81. 11:14 what you dont seem to understand is that these players are signed and committed to play lacrosse at these schools. How much money they are getting I dont know but they have signed to play at these schools. How is that ignorance!

    ReplyDelete
  82. If you want to be factual on this, You have to remove the kid going to Dartmouth. They do not give ANY athletic money for ANY sport! The IVY league does not give out athletic money.

    The same is true for the Air Force Academy. You have a commitment to the US Air Force in return for your eduacation being paid for.

    Since the discussion was basedon scholarship moines, you would also need to remove all of the D3 players since D3 has no athletic scholarships either.

    ReplyDelete
  83. obviously they are not getting athletic scholarship money but their education is probably free (wink, wink) either way its an impressive list and like I said its only off one AAU team. I am sure there are others.

    ReplyDelete
  84. 3:00pm , there is no wink, wink. If you have been through it there is none! Only exception would be getting into a school not the money.

    ReplyDelete
  85. As far as Lax kids getting athletic money there is some but not a ton compared to the other sports like football or hoop. Lax kid might be getting $5000 in athletic money where a football kid probably getting somewhere between $15,000 to $20,000. Obviously not in all cases but there is less athletic money in Lax unless you are talking about the national powers.

    ReplyDelete
  86. WMUR story did have one NH LAX scholarship kid going to Duke, I think they are a power.
