ESPN Debut: Greg Tremblay '75

ESPN Television Debut: Greg Tremblay ‘75
Greg Tremblay ’75 made his television debut in August 8 on ESPN as Plate Umpire for the 2019 East Region Tournament on the road to the Little League World Series.

Greg, a referee for over 15 years, began officiating in Little League after being involved in youth sports as a coach when his children Greg, Jr., Jennifer ‘08 and Mary Margaret were younger.

Greg came to the attention of the East Region of Little League based upon a recommendation from local administrators. The selection process to become a Regional umpire is lengthy and rigorous. For the 2019 season there were over 250 referee recommendations; Greg was among the 12 selected for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

When not umpiring, Greg, who received his BS in Business Administration from Merrimack before becoming a CPA, is with Mahoney Fiorentino & Company in Wakefield.

Greg resides in Danvers with his wife Jane and remains active in the Fenwick community.

Congratulations, Greg!

Zac Nardone '11

Congratulations to Zach Nardone '11 named as one of Salem News 2018-19 Winter Sports Coaches of the Year.

Salem Evening News
Bishop Fenwick

The Crusader boys (and girls) had a terrific season in Nardone’s first year as indoor coach. He began working with the current crop of seniors as an assistant coach four years ago.

“This is the first class I’ve had the pleasure of coaching through all four years. It’s amazing to see their growth during that time and how it paid off this season with a Tri-County League (Division 2) championship,” said the 26-year old Stoneham resident.. “Going to invitational meets, such as the Dartmouth Relays, East Coast Invite and states, having our team excel at these meets among high caliber competition shows the effort put in over the last four years.

“I’m thankful to the athletes and coaching staff who have dedicated themselves to the team. None of the success and enjoyment this season would be possible without the dedication of the athletes and coaching staff.”

The combined boys and girls team scored 151 points for Fenwick, which was 25 more than the second place squad to easily win the TCL championship.

A history teacher, Nardone said assistant coaches Steve Czarnecki, Jocelyn Testa, Michael Ford and Pat Cahill, who worked with the team on a day-to-day basis, were instrumental in the team’s success.
