HIGH 5 OF THE WEEK: Guilmette homers in three straight games for CCSU

Guilmette (CCSU athletics)
Central Connecticut State University senior Mitch Guilmette homered in three straight games during a recent stretch.
On Sunday, March 11, Guilmette smacked two home runs in a 4-2 loss to UMass in Northborough, Mass. The left-handed hitter was far from done.
In the Northeast Conference opener at Long Island University-Brooklyn on Friday, Guilmette homered to lead off the seventh inning. He drove in a run and scored two more in the 10-7 victory.
On Saturday, Guilmette homered in the seventh inning of a lopsided loss to LIU.
The former Bristol Central standout wasn't the only hot hitter for the Blue Devils.

Stephens (CCSU athletics)

The freshman is 11-for-23 in his last six games with six RBI and four runs scored.
Four of Stephens' RBI came on a grand slam he hit in the 10-7 win at LIU on Friday. The home run was the first at CCSU for the former Sacred Heart standout, and what a way to get on the board. Stephens hit his slam in a five-run third inning that put the Blue Devils ahead 6-2.
In Sunday's 5-3 loss to LIU, Stephens was 3-for-4. He has had four multi-hit games so far this season, including three in the last six contests.
Stephens is hitting .400 with seven RBI for the season. Of note, he made his first start on the mound on Tuesday in CCSU's home opener against UConn.



Matt Warren, Albertus Magnus College baseball

The sophomore lefty hit the ball well during the Falcons' time at the Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Through eight games this season, Warren is hitting a solid .345 with two homers, three triples, 12 RBI and six runs scored. On March 13, he had two triples and three RBI against Clarks Summit. Warren hit a three-run homer against Lancaster Bible on March 15 and a solo homer against Wells on March 17. He had four RBI in the Lancaster Bible game and three against Wells.
Warren was a standout for Tary Scott at Wolcott High.





Gallino (Marist athletics)
Peter Gallino, Marist swimming and diving
The career of this senior Red Fox ended in a NCAA Diving Zone meet, but not until he had collected more honors.
Gallino was ECAC Diver of the Meet in each of the last three seasons. The former Sacred Heart High standout was MAAC Diver of the Week five times during his career, including four in his senior season. 
Gallino was a team captain in each of his last two seasons at Marist. He leaves the program ranked second in the one-meter and three-meter dives. Only Brian Bolstad is ahead of Gallino in both dives, and that's by a small amount of points in each event.
Marist called Gallino's diving career "spectacular," and there's no better way to describe it.


Borecki (CCSU athletics)
Sam Borecki, Central Connecticut State University indoor track and field
This former Holy Cross athlete capped off his Blue Devil indoor track career with a second team All-NEC nod.
Borecki finished second in the pole vault at the NEC championship meet with a mark of 4.75 meters (15 feet, 7 inches). The senior helped CCSU win the NEC championship as a team, and he looks for more success in the outdoor season. The Blue Devils have won four straight outdoor conference titles, and Borecki was first team All-NEC in pole vault as a junior.
Borecki is a Cheshire native.
