HARWICH ─ The Monomoy boys baseball team was slated to host Sturgis East in their final home game of the season. Instead, it became the game that wasn't, bringing to a close the team's 2017 season with a rainout and a laugh. While not every team was rained out in their last games of the spring, most Monomoy teams wrapped things up recently, with a handful of exceptions. Members of the track team enjoyed a pr...

HARWICH ─ With just a few games left in their regular season, the Monomoy girls softball team is continuing their dominating run with an 11-0 shutout of the St. John Paul II Lions on Thursday in which the Sharks' bats were sharp and Mollie Charest's pitching was near perfect. Charest allowed just four hits in the seven-inning outing, with only two walks and seven strikeouts. Meanwhile, at bat she went 2-for-...

HARWICH ─ At the start of his 2017 season, Monomoy boys track coach Don Bates had two goals: to win the Cape and Islands League title and to compete in respectable fashion against tougher opponents. Bates was thrilled when his team accomplished both goals, this week winning the league title with a 72-57 victory against Sturgis in a rain-soaked home meet. The rain began just as the meet started but didn't dam...

HARWICH ─ Each time Monomoy athlete Ryan Meehan sets foot on the soccer pitch or prepares to race down the track in a meet, he savors the moment and gives it his all. Mostly it's because he loves sports, but it's also partly because he knows there is a chance he might not play again. When Meehan was days old and about to be discharged from Cape Cod Hospital, medical personnel from Bass River Pediatrics decid...

When the Monomoy boys lacrosse team finished its Monday practice, they decided to show some love to the girls team, which was currently doing battle against Sacred Heart on the turf at MRHS. To say they were loud is, well, an understatement. But rude? Not so much, which is why when they rankled an official and were tossed out of the stadium, the move rankled others, including me. Having been on the sidelines o...

SOUTH YARMOUTH ─ They say that attitude is everything, and in the case of the Monomoy girls lacrosse team, it is. It’s been a bit of a challenge making their way through their first season as a varsity squad, but even after a tough 18-6 loss to Sturgis West on Tuesday, the collective team attitude was one of determination. Along with a number of successful faceoffs, Emma Mawn netted a hat trick in the travel...

CHATHAM ─ With the winds blowing steadily across the fairways at Eastward Ho! Country Club on Monday, the Monomoy girls golf team drove, chipped, and putted their way to a 4-2 victory against Nauset.

Completing the circle was Jane Howar...

HARWICH ─ After the Cape Tech boys baseball team took a four-run lead following the opening inning in last Thursday's game against Monomoy, the Crusaders were hoping to cruise through the rest of the game in good shape, but the Sharks had other plans and rallied back to claim a 10-6 victory.
