HARWICH/EASTHAM – When it came to holding graduations during the COVID-19 pandemic, area seniors were clear — they’d rather wait or hold a graduates-only event than celebrate virtually. The good news for the Class of 2020 is that each of the area high schools has a graduation plan, and none are virtual. Cape Cod Tech will hold its graduation June 4 at the Wellfleet Drive-In, Monomoy Regional High School will h...

ORLEANS – As Nauset Regional High School makes plans for graduation ceremonies in July (see related story), planning is under way for the fall semester. “We’ve already started conversations about next year,” Principal Chris Ellsasser told the regional school committee May 14. “My feeling is we will need a remote version (of instruction), a blended version, face-to-face, and one that does all three. We’re estab...

ORLEANS — In the midst of a pandemic, Principal Elaine Pender told the elementary school committee last week that she has many reasons to give thanks. There’s the feeding program run by cafeteria and lunch program director Susan Murray and “our amazing” Lisa Chappel, the cafeteria manager, who are “behind the scenes producing massive amounts of food every day” for pick-up by families and handing it out in all ...

HARWICH – With the COVID curve far from flattened in the United States, and Massachusetts continuing to see new cases, it came as no surprise when Governor Charlie Baker canceled schools across the state on April 21, but Monomoy Superintendent Dr. Scott Carpenter was ready. “It’s one of those things that on some level I think was a bit of a relief,” he said. “I, personally, went into this thinking it was going...

Shortly after Governor Charlie Baker announced on April 21 that schools across the state would remain closed through the end of the academic year, Monomoy baseball catcher Sean Gould drove to Whitehouse Field, crouched down behind home plate, and held his arm out as if prepping for one more catch. It’s a catch that won’t be coming. On April 24, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) vote...

Student athletes across the state gave a cautiously optimistic cheer on Monday afternoon when it was announced that the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association approved a shortened spring season for all sports. The MIAA Board of Directors held a two-hour phone conference, voting 12-0, with one abstention, to hold a shortened spring season to begin upon the planned reopening of schools on May 4, at w...

As the COVID19 crisis continues to impact people across the globe, students in local districts got back to the business of learning thanks to modern technology and dedicated educators in the Monomoy and Nauset school districts, as well as at the Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School. Monomoy Superintendent Dr. Scott Carpenter said he began working with district administrators on remote learning several weeks ago ...

The halls of local schools are largely empty this week after concerns about COVID-19, the virus that causes coronavirus, continue to impact communities at the local, state and national level. In an email to parents from Superintendent Dr. Scott Carpenter, the Monomoy Regional School District announced Saturday that schools would close as of March 16, likely through the end of the district’s April vacation, wit...

The Boston Marathon might have been delayed due to COVID-19, but neither that nor living with cystic fibrosis is going to stop Nauset High graduate Anabelle Parada-Poignand from tackling the 26.2-mile course in September, even if running isn’t her favorite activity. Parada-Poignand’s decision to take on one of the country’s most popular marathons came during a visit with her doctor at Boston Children’s Hospita...

EASTHAM/CHATHAM – Spencer Rushnak has something of a secret. When he first started playing soccer as a kid, he didn't like it. Then, as a freshman at Nauset Regional High School, Rushnak watched the 2016 team cap off an undefeated season with a state championship victory, and decided he wanted to do that, too. Fast forward a few years and Rushnak recently committed to continuing his career with the Roger Willi...

EASTHAM – It came so close to being the perfect comeback, but time just wasn't on the side of the Nauset girls varsity basketball team in their Feb. 19 game against Archbishop Williams, with the Warriors falling to the Bishops with a heartbreaking 49-48 final score in spite of one heck of a comeback. The Lady Warriors found themselves in trouble early in their final game of the regular season, falling behind 1...

By: Kat Szmit

NORTH EASTHAM – The statistics are sobering: One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18 th birthdays, but only one in 10 will tell someone about it. Children's Cove has been working to change that through their Teen TASK (Taking A Stand for Kids) Force, which this year has come to Nauset Regional High School. The program originally got its start in 2016 with a partnership wi...

NORTH EASTHAM – The records have been falling like dominoes with each event the Nauset girls indoor track team competes in, but recently the Warriors accomplished a goal that will belong to the 2019-2020 team always: they won the Cape and Islands League title for the first time in program history. “It's exciting,” said head coach Moira Nobili. “It's the whole team and the whole season that builds up to that. T...

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...

By: Kat Szmit

NORTH EASTHAM – Four Nauset wrestlers won by pin in one of the Warriors only home meets of the 2019-2020 season on Jan. 8, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Barnstable Red Raiders, who went on to win 51-28 in a Cape and Islands League meet. Henry Rank was the first to win by pin for the home team Warriors, defeating Barnstable opponent Jacob Coyne during regulation wrestling in the 126 class. Coyne offered ...

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...
