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...

Nauset Wrestling Can't Quite Pin Down Barnstable

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...

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...

SANDWICH/MILFORD – It is said that all good things must come to an end, but in the case of the Nauset Warriors 2019 boys varsity soccer team, that end came too soon and once again via penalty kicks that led to a Milford win in the Div. 2 South Sectional Finals on Nov. 17. It was a one-goal game until the final minutes of regulation play, and then, courtesy of a free kick and one well-placed shot on goal, it wa...

NORTH EASTHAM – It's been almost a year since the Nauset boys varsity soccer team won the state championship, and they're determined to do it again. The Warriors edged a little closer to their goal last week when they defeated the Duxbury Dragons 3-1 in the Div. 2 South quarterfinals. Playing in front of a packed house before the rain fell on Nov. 7, the Warriors made it clear from first touch that they were i...
