Monomoy Field Hockey Team Qualifies For MIAA State Tournament
HARWICH – When Monomoy and Carver renewed their South Shore League rivalry in field hockey a few weeks ago, the Sharks walked away feeling completely frustrated. Not only had they dominated, but their go-ahead goal with time winding down was waived off when the officials ruled the ball never actually went into the cage, and the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The Welt Mural
Like many in Harwich, we're disappointed that the Milton Welt Mural that stood for 50 years in the lobby of Harwich High School could not be saved. At press time, it was set to go under the wrecking ball as the last vestiges of the structure get pulled down. The effort to save the mural was mighty, but ultimately lost to too little funding and too much bureaucracy.
