Local sports roundup
Hudson – Wayne Barry, coach of the Hudson Catholic High School boys basketball team for the last four years – and five years overall – confirmed that he will not be returning next year to coach the Green Wave.
"It's just a timing issue," Barry said. "I was hoping to return, but some issues have surfaced at work that, going forward, are going to require more of my time this winter and I just recently came to the realization that I'm not going to be able to devote the time to the team that I feel is necessary. It wouldn't be fair to the kids for me to demand a full-time commitment from them and then not provide one myself. What kind of example would that be?"
Hudson Catholic compiled a 41-38 record over the last four years, twice qualifying for the Central Mass. Division 3 tournament. In his other year at the helm – the 1999-2000 season – Barry guided the Green Wave to a tournament-qualifying 11-9 mark.
Nine rising seniors and 12 of the 13 players on last year's roster are scheduled to return to the team next season. Leading the way will be seniors Brandon Shea, Mike Condon, Ryan Gilles, Charlie Tocci, Pat O'Connell, D.J. Cormier, Spencer Raphaelson, Nick Walsh and Chris Benevides.
Other returnees include rising juniors Brian Cormier, Robbie Cato and Jeremy Williams.
"Sometimes you hear people grouse about how a coach leaves and leaves the cupboard bare," Barry said with a laugh. "With nine seniors and 12 players coming back off of last year's team, I guess they won't be able to say that about me."
