Monomoy Field Hockey At The Head Of Its Class

By: Brad Joyal

HARWICH – Before the Monomoy field hockey team began its season, Kathryn Andreoli, the Sharks’ new coach, stressed the importance of conditioning.  ​“She pushes us a lot,” junior Helen DiGiovanni, a Harwich resident, said of Andreoli. “We run so much. We do running on the weekends when we have no practice just to make sure we’re conditioned. It helps a lot.” ​All of that conditioning was on full display Sat...

​NORTH EASTHAM – The first sign that things were going to be different for this year’s Nauset volleyball program came during tryouts. Sixty-six kids attended, which, according to varsity coach Kaleigh Powell, was more than any other fall program at the school. ​It was only a handful of years ago that the Warriors were able to only field a varsity team; now the program has varsity, junior varsity and a freshman...

HARWICH – For the first time in the Pals For Life Foundation’s 26-year history, the PFL hosted its annual golf tournament without its founder, the late Richard Costello, the former owner of the Chatham Squire who died in May. Costello’s memory and spirit were in attendance, however, during the 25th annual tournament, which was held Oct. 6 under pristine, sunny conditions at Captains Golf Course in Brewster. ...

HARWICH – The Monomoy girls soccer players feel like they are hitting their stride at the perfect time — right as the team is eyeing a playoff push.

NORTH EASTHAM – It wasn’t the end result the Nauset football team had hoped for, but the Warriors returned to the gridiron, and that’s what mattered most to the team’s players and coaches. One week after Nauset had to cancel its game against Mashpee scheduled for Oct. 1 due to too many injuries, the team returned to the field Friday against visiting Sandwich. The Blue Knights spoiled the Warriors’ return to pl...

HARWICH – Thanksgiving came early for the Monomoy and St. John Paul II football teams. The rivals met in an early preview of their Thanksgiving morning clash Friday night at Monomoy Regional High School, and they provided their respective fan bases with an exciting back-and-forth affair complete with plenty of highlights that will long be remembered. Although it was the host Sharks that got on the scoreboar...

NORTH EASTHAM — One of the best – and worst – aspects of high school sports is that each team faces a revolving door at the end of every season. It’s almost always a bittersweet process as teams watch some memorable and impactful seniors graduate and leave the team while newcomers join and take their place. The Nauset Regional High School boys and girls cross-country teams are both going through changes, thoug...

Heading into the high school football season, it was apparent that the Lower Cape teams were facing some obstacles to fielding football programs. Attendance numbers are down across the state, but it’s an even bigger issue on the Cape. Nauset’s varsity team had to cancel Friday’s scheduled game at Mashpee because of a lack of players. However, the Warriors weren’t dealing with a COVID-19 situation – instead, th...

HARWICH – The Monomoy boys soccer team’s unbeaten streak was in jeopardy of being snapped Thursday afternoon when the Sharks hosted the Rising Tide Herons. After giving up a goal in the first half, the Sharks ramped up their pressure in the offensive zone during the final 40 minutes of play. The increased pressure paid dividends with 5:30 remaining, as senior captain Troy Olson netted Monomoy’s lone goal to ev...

BREWSTER – It’s not often that a senior high school athlete would turn to a freshman for inspiration or guidance. However, there aren’t too many freshmen with the athletic ability of Jack Martin. Martin, a Yarmouth resident, has been a standout for the Nauset golf team this fall despite being just one of two freshmen on this year’s squad. While he has played an integral part in the team’s 7-3 record, Martin’s ...

HARWICH – For the first time in a few years, the Cape Cod Tech girls volleyball team is feeling a sense of stability. Between the addition of first-year coach Rachel Crooker and a rejuvenated outlook among the players, the Crusaders began the season with a 4-2 record and continue to improve each time they take the floor. “We had a lot of team issues last year but we have all kind of gotten past that and we’...
