HARWICH – For years, Annalise Langelier has been drawn to behavioral science. Her curiosity about the way the mind works blossomed as a youngster, when her father Brian, a detective for the Marlborough Police Department, would present her with police cases or unusual scenarios designed to make her ponder how her father and his colleagues might respond in order to crack a case. “We kind of got in this ro...

Little by little, the Monomoy Regional High School winter cheerleading team performed portions of its routine during the school’s boys and girls home basketball games in Harwich.

     At long last, Monomoy Regional High School is back with an in-person production, and this one is worth the wait. “The 25 th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is a musical comedy that will deliver laughs while setting your toes tapping.

HARWICH – The game quickly went sideways for the Monomoy girls basketball team.

They regrouped and began making stops at the defensive end of the floor, where they forced turnover...

A lot went through Connor Brickley’s mind when he took over as head coach of the Cape Cod Furies co-op girls hockey team featuring girls from Cape Cod Tech, Monomoy and Nauset Regional High Schools.

HARWICH – All throughout the preseason, Monomoy’s first-year girls basketball coach Brian Tomasini has been preaching the importance of defense to the Sharks. His players took his message to heart during Friday’s season opener against Cape Cod Tech.

HARWICH – The Monomoy Regional High School boys basketball team isn’t interested in backing down from any challenges.

By: Brad Joyal

HARWICH – All the Monomoy field hockey team needed was a spark to get going. For 45 minutes, the top-seeded Sharks’ offense was stagnant. The team created a handful of scoring chances against eighth-seeded Littleton during the first three quarters of Saturday’s Division 4 state tournament quarterfinal, but it wasn’t until a corner at the end of the third frame that Monomoy senior captain Caroline DiGiovanni sc...
