LOWELL – Leaving LeLacheur Park with a runner-up medal around his neck wasn’t the way Nashoba Regional senior Jack Sarnoski wanted his career to end, but he and his teammates have every reason to be proud of their historic season. And they are. A week ago, the Chieftains captured their first Central Mass. title and on Saturday faced Bridgewater-Raynham for the Division 1 state championship. Bridgewater-Raynham senior left-handed pitcher Mike Bruemmel, who was nearly untouchable, ended Nashoba’s great run. Bruemmel took a no-hitter in to the eighth and struck out 12 and the Trojans claimed their first state crown with a 4-0 win. “Their kid pitched a great game,” Nashoba coach Chuck Schoolcraft said. “I mean, what the heck, he had us off balance all afternoon long. We just couldn’t hit the ball. But our kids have nothing to hang their heads about. They deserved to be here. They did a great job and, hey, maybe next year.” Nashoba finished 21-4.
Bridgewater-Raynham 4, Nashoba 0
