HARWICH – You might have seen Sean Gould on the soccer pitch this fall. Don't be fooled. While the Monomoy senior does love the sport, another has captured his heart, which is why Gould recently signed his letter of intention to play ball for Curry College. “I love soccer, but baseball is my first love,” Gould said. “I realized from a young age that this is what I want. I'm going to work at it.” Gould said ...

HOLLISTON – After a stellar 2019 season, the Monomoy girls field hockey team's ride has come to an end with a 3-2 loss to Holliston in the MIAA Div. 2 South first round on Nov. 1. “They really wanted to win today and it was disappointing,” said head coach Jennifer Estes. “The score does not reflect their effort.” Indeed, Monomoy kicked off the game with an early possession in what became a battle for contro...

HARWICH – It was clear from the start of the boys soccer Div. 4 South preliminary game that the Sharks wanted to win, and win they did, sinking Bourne 3-1 in the first tournament victory in Monomoy program history Sunday. “We've lost in the first round every time,” said head coach Keith Clark. “So that was something the guys really focused on, and wanted to make sure they got done.” AJ Williams had a hat tr...

HARWICH – Two well-placed goals made a rainy soccer match that much more worth it for the Nauset girls varsity soccer team, which defeated Monomoy 2-0 in the final game of the regular season for both teams. Monomoy played a hard-fought game, but couldn't get past the quick reflexes of Nauset goalkeeper Brady Deschamps, who managed to keep a grip on the ball in spite of on-and-off rain throughout the game. T...

HARWICH – A handful of Monomoy Regional School District parents got a crash course in vaping on Oct. 16, when Kim Slade, a substance abuse prevention manager and vaping expert with the Barnstable County Department of Human Services, offered information on teen vaping that sent any defense of vaporizer use up in smoke. “From 2017 to 2019 we've seen a 135 percent increase in students vaping,” Slade told parents ...

HARWICH – After a tough start to their 2019 season, all the Monomoy boys varsity soccer team wanted was to make the playoffs. A stellar Senior Night performance against St. John Paul II offered a boost, but it was a scoreless tie against the D-Y Dolphins the following day that clinched the post-season berth. Senior Night offered the team's future graduates a chance to shine, and shine they did, with the Sharks...

HARWICH – It might have been homecoming, but it just wasn't Monomoy's day when the boys soccer team hosted Barnstable in boys soccer action on Saturday, with the Sharks falling to the Red Raiders 2-0. Barnstable came out blazing in the Oct. 19 match, peppering Shark goalie Sean Deveau with shots in the opening minutes of game play, with one soaring high above the net and two more bouncing off the posts. But no...

HARWICH – It wasn't the happiest of homecomings for the Monomoy girls varsity soccer team, which fell 3-0 to Barnstable, but the Sharks turned things around on Monday when they defeated Falmouth Academy 5-0 as they continue striving for a spot in the post-season. Though the Sharks played a strong game on Oct. 19 in the first of a trifecta of homecoming games that day, the Red Raiders prevailed courtesy of a ha...

HARWICH – It wasn't the way Monomoy wanted their homecoming game to go, but when all was said and done, one touchdown was all the Sharks could muster against Martha's Vineyard, as the Vineyarders claimed a 36-8 win on Oct. 18. The visiting Vineyarders kicked off the scoring in the first quarter when Hunter Meader hopped the ball in from four yards out after the team marched the ball downfield, though Monomoy w...

HARWICH – Students approaching the Game of Reality were initially excited to spin the wheel and see what life had in store, until, that is, they realized that more often than not the wheel landed them in a financial hole. This was just one of many lessons passed along to Monomoy Regional High School seniors during the 2019 Credit For Life event, held Oct. 10 at the high school. The event, sponsored by the Cape...

HARWICH – Shortly after the final whistle blew in the Oct. 14 scoreless tie between Monomoy and Mashpee girls varsity soccer, Monomoy head coach Jenn Peterson had strong words for her team. “I think that was the best defensive game you've played all season,” she told the Sharks. Indeed, the team has come a long way since their September loss to D-Y, showing strength and tenacity that the score didn't reflec...

HARWICH – The Monomoy cross-country teams went out on top in their final home meet of the 2019 season, which proved a bittersweet event for the team’s seniors, Margo Dery and Steven Young, both of whom have been with the team since they were in eighth grade. For both it was a day of passing the torch as each came in second to up and coming runners on both the boys and girls teams. In Young’s case, he finished ...

NANTUCKET – When it comes to Monomoy's Oct. 12 football game against Nantucket, it's debatable on which was worse—the choppy, stomach-churning boat ride over or the game itself, which saw the Sharks fall 41-0 in Cape and Islands League Lighthouse action on a damp, blustery Saturday evening. While the Whalers celebrated a homecoming victory, their second win of the season, Monomoy was thwarted at every turn tha...

NORTH EASTHAM – Nearly a month after the Monomoy girls varsity field hockey team dominated Nauset in a 4-1 victory, the teams were back at it. From the outset it was clear that Monomoy was looking for another win, but this time the Warriors put up a solid fight, with game play on Oct. 4 ending in a scoreless tie. Monomoy nearly knocked the ball in several times during the late afternoon outing, the first when ...

HARWICH – The Monomoy boys soccer team hoped that a 4-1 victory against St. John Paul II on Oct. 1 would turn things around, but their season of struggle continued last week with a tough 3-1 loss to Sandwich on Oct. 3, putting the pressure on the Sharks regarding upcoming games as they compete for a spot in the playoffs. Although the home team Sharks controlled a fair amount of the on-field action as game play...

SOUTH YARMOUTH – When the Monomoy girls traveled to South Yarmouth to face the D-Y Dolphins on Sept. 23, the scoring started with a penalty kick and ended with a goal that dropped in as the final whistle blew, but sadly for the Sharks, the win belonged to the home team Dolphins. “I feel like we have a young defense and we struggled to deal with their offense,” said Monomoy head coach Jenn Peterson. “They have ...
