Myles Goulbourne, College of the Desert football
It has been a heck of a journey for the former Crosby star.
After playing for the Bulldogs, and playing well as a 6-foot-5 wide receiver, Goulbourne headed to the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, Calif. A sophomore at the junior collegechool, Goulbourne hauled in 61 passes in 11 games for 625 yards and eight touchdowns. He was named first team American Mountain all-conference for his efforts.
Goulbourne gets to continue his football career at Indiana State University. The Waterbury native recently signed a letter of intent to play for the Sycamores, based in Terre Haute, Ind. If Indiana State sounds familiar, it’s where basketball legend Larry Bird first started making his name.
Goulburne will now get his chance to make his own name.

DeFillippi (Mount Ida athletics)

Joey DeFillippi, Mount Ida basketball
The former Bristol Central standout has struggled with his shot at points this season, but he was on the mark from three-point range in a game on Feb. 7.
Mount Ida lost 86-80 to Albertus Magnus that night, but DeFillippi did his part to keep his team in the game. Always a threat from the outside, the junior buried 7-of-13 three-point attempts and scored a team-high 24 points. DeFillippi also had five rebounds, two steals and one assist.
It’s not the first time DeFillippi has gone off from behind the arc. The game marked the seventh time this season that DeFillippi has hit three or more 3-pointers.
Mount Ida has one more regular season game left, at Albertus Magnus on Saturday. The Mustangs have clinched a home league tournament game, and DeFillippi has been a big part of that. He has started 23 of 24 games and is shooting 37.2 percent from three-point range, plus 85.5 percent on foul shots.

Knox (ECSU athletics)

Haley Knox, Eastern Connecticut State indoor track and field
Three weeks, three different records set in the 1000 meters for the former Bristol Central runner.
Competing at the 20th Annual New England Alliance Indoor Track & Field Championships last Saturday, Knox ran the 1000 in 3:09.91 and finished fourth.
On Jan. 28, Knox first broke the program record with a time of 3:16.77 at the Springfield College Massaoit Invitational. On Feb. 4, Knox broke her own mark for the first time, running a 3:13.16 in the URI Coaches Tribute Track & Field Invitational. That meet featured a bunch of Division I programs.
Knox and her ECSU teammates take part in the New England Division III Championships at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The meet starts tomorrow and concludes on Saturday.

Taylor DiChello, Boston University swimming and diving

DiChello (Boston Univ. athletics)

The senior and former Bristol Eastern standout has been earning points for her team over the last several weeks.
Wednesday marked the first day of the Patriot League Championships, and DiChello competed in 3-meter diving. She finished ninth and earned nine team points for BU. The Terriers were first out of 10 Patriot League teams after the first day of the four-day championship meet. 
It’s the third straight meet where DiChello has earned points for BU. On Jan. 28, the Terriers
went up against Boston College, and DiChello was fourth in diving. 
Before that effort, DiChello finished third in diving at a four-team meet that included Army, George Mason and American. The meet took place on Jan. 21 and was hosted by Army.
DiChello is winding down her career competing for BU, and she is making sure she does her part to help the Terriers succeed.

Chelsea Houlihan, UMass Dartmouth basketball
This Wolcott native and former Holy Cross hoopster has been filling the stat sheets for the Corsairs over the last couple games.
In a Feb. 11 loss to Eastern Connecticut State, Houlihan had 12 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. The junior struggled in a game against UMass Boston on Wednesday night, but she still made an impact. Houlihan made just 3-of-13 shots and had six turnovers, but she also had five assists, four steals and four rebounds. One of her four rebounds came on the offensive glass, and it led to a 3-pointer that cut the UMass Dartmouth deficit to 63-51 with 4:54 left in the fourth quarter. It was the start for the final Corsair comeback to victory.
Rachel McCarron’s jump shot at the buzzer gave UMass Dartmouth a 68-66 win.
For the season, Houlihan leads the Corsairs in assists (97/4.0 per game), turnovers (87/3.6) and steals (tied with 29/1.2 per game). She is second in blocks (10), fourth in rebounds (90) and fifth in points (128/5.3 per game). 
Despite struggling with her shooting, Houlihan has found other ways to impact the game.
UMass Dartmouth plays its final regular season game on Saturday at Southern Maine. After that, the Corsairs will play in the Little East Tournament.
