Beasley first picked up a lacrosse stick somewhere around fifth grade and was immediately hooked. “I'd never touched a stick before that,” he said. “I caught on pr...

There might be some controversy regarding the outcome of the Iowa Caucus, but for the Monomoy Regional High School students that made the trip to see U.S. politics in action, it was an experience they won't soon forget.

HARWICH – The Monomoy After Prom Planning Committee needs help and they're not afraid to ask for it. Unfortunately, as the 2020 Junior Prom approaches, the answer to numerous requests for financial support for the annual After Prom event has been largely in the negative, which has committee members scrambling to raise the funds necessary to keep the program afloat. The After Prom is a special post-prom event l...

HARWICH – The Monomoy girls varsity basketball team might have fallen to Sandwich with a lopsided score of 57-35, but head coach Pete Richer told the team he thought it was their best game all season. “I told the girls after the first quarter that was the best quarter of the year, and I told them after the game it really was our best game of the year regardless of the score and considering the competition,” Ri...

HARWICH – Quiet leadership and dedication to sport have worked well for Monomoy's Connor Deveau during his high school lacrosse career, so well in fact that Deveau recently celebrated his official signing to play for Regis College next fall. It was none other than a confident Deveau that secured the attention of Regis College Men's Lacrosse head coach Matthew Sweeney by sending an email with his own lacrosse h...

ORLEANS – Between interrupted breakaways and pucks that simply refused to slide into the net, the annual Codfish Cup between the Monomoy/Nauset/Cape Tech Furies and the D-Y Dolphins just didn't go the Furies' way. No doubt given the level of intensity the home team Furies brought to the ice at the Charles Moore Arena, the 2-0 loss carried a bit more of a sting, as did several questionable calls by on-ice offic...

HYANNIS – The lucky number was seven in the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs boys ice hockey game against Wareham/Carver on Monday, but it wasn't the Monarchs who were lucky.

We've been having a hard time gettin...

HARWICH – Monomoy might have had the home court advantage, but when the Sharks faced the Nauset Warriors for the second time this season, this time the game belonged to the visitors, who, led by a stellar performance from Bobby Joy, played to a commanding 57-35 win Jan. 4. Joy topped all scorers in the Saturday afternoon outing, netting 28 points overall after getting started with a three-pointer in the openin...

HARWICH – It's rare in high school sports to have every available team member see playing time in a game, and rarer still to have each player score, but that's exactly what happened in the Monomoy girls varsity basketball team's 57-23 victory against Rising Tide on Dec. 18. The 2019-2020 Shark squad is a decidedly young team, boasting no seniors and only two juniors, with eighth graders, freshmen and sophomore...

ORLEANS – Sandwich might have come away with a win against the Cape Cod Furies on Dec. 21, but that doesn't mean the home team made it easy for them. In spite of the score, the Furies skated furiously, playing with a tenacity that had their head coach smiling at game's end. “I thought we battled really hard,” said Furies head coach Addie Weeks following the 3-1 loss. “Sandwich is always strong, but I'm really ...

EASTHAM/HARWICH – Two games. Two tough opponents. Two huge finishes for the Monomoy Sharks, who kicked off their 2019-2020 season with big wins against Nauset and Sandwich. Monomoy traveled to Eastham on Friday night for their season opener against the Warriors, the tension around which had been brewing since the stale bread flew during a fall football game. With a host of Sharks fans staging a whiteout in the...

ORLEANS – When losing a number of seniors through graduation, a rebuilding year might be expected, but when the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs boys ice hockey team faced the Nauset Warriors on Dec. 14, there was little to suggest either team was struggling. Instead, it was a fast-paced contest at the Charles Moore Arena when the first and hopefully annual Lower Cape Showdown commenced. Part fundraiser to benefit the...
