The North Shore Sports Desk radio show on 104.9 FM will be broadcasting live Saturday at 8 a.m. at the Capitol Diner in Lynn.
Hosts Phil Stacey and Pete Kelley said the show is coming to Lynn to honor the Division 1 state champion St. Mary’s High girls hockey team. The players and coaches are expected to be on hand at the diner.
Speaking of St. Mary’s, Athletic Director Jeff Newhall has received notice from the National Federation of High School Sports (NFHSS) that the Lady Spartans’ 77-game unbeaten streak and three state titles are national records.
“It’s a remarkable achievement,” said Newhall. “Now every time they step on the ice, there’s not only the pressure of winning state titles, but they’re trying to extend a national record.”

There had been some talk about creating one Pop Warner organization and calling it the Junior Tide (Everett High’s teams are known as the Crimson Tide), but discussions never really got off the ground. In fact, one Everett official said he would consider the American Youth Football organization (no weight limits for each division) before considering a merger.
