YARMOUTH PORT — Monomoy girls golf coach John Anderson was a little nervous when he first saw junior standout Jennie Grogan moments after she finished playing her round at Monday’s Cape and Islands League girls golf championship at Kings Way Golf Club. “When I saw her come in, she had this look on her face that I didn’t know what happened,” Anderson said. “She was like, ‘Ah, I didn’t play that well, I shot a 6...

BARNSTABLE – The Nauset girls lacrosse team felt it had been knocking on the door for a few games. They knew it was only a matter of time before they would get rewarded for their hard work.

The win marke...

CHATHAM – Leslie Gillis knew she needed a hobby to supplement the time she spent teaching eighth grade math at Walsh Middle School in Framingham. When her own children became college-aged, Gillis turned to golf. “I don’t consider myself athletic, but I don’t feel you have to be athletic to play golf if you enjoy people and being outside,” said Gillis, a 75-year-old retired Chatham resident who serves as the pr...

By: Brad Joyal

Throughout most of the Nauset girls lacrosse team’s season, Warriors coach Heather Stevens had grown accustomed to sophomore Sienna Reeves being a key contributor toward the team’s success at the offensive end of the field. Reeves has established a reputation for being a strong facilitator, as someone who can spot open players cutting toward the opposing net and place the ball on their sticks to put them in a ...

NORTH EASTHAM – If you find yourself at Nauset Regional High School during after-school activities some afternoon, you might hear a cheer from one part of campus one minute and a roar from another part of campus a few moments later. Nauset’s top student-athletes are used to being celebrated, though they rarely have the opportunity to be honored in one place at one time. On Monday, Nauset celebrated its 15 s...

HARWICH – When Monomoy boys track and field coach Don Bates looked at the team’s schedule before the season, he couldn’t help but feel as though the Sharks might be in trouble against the rest of their Cape and Islands League competition. “We’re the smallest team in the league,” explained Bates, “so I looked at the schedule before we started and I thought, ‘Well, we’ll be pretty hard-pressed to win a meet.’” ...

NORTH EASTHAM – The Nauset softball team chose the perfect time — and the perfect opponent — to have one of its best performances of the season. After suffering an extra-innings loss at Barnstable on April 27, Nauset got a little revenge Friday afternoon when it cruised to a 14-2 victory over Barnstable in a five-inning mercy-rule contest. “When we came into this game, we knew our issue in our last game was...
