The last time the Cape Cod Tech boys soccer program had a season was in 2019, when the Crusaders finished with a 12-7-2 record after advancing to the semifinals of the Division 4 South sectional tournament. That group was full of experienced upperclassmen — an advantage this year’s group doesn’t possess. The Crusaders boast a young roster during the Fall II season, with just three seniors and two juniors on a ...

Main Street Bogs Eyed For Agricultural Education

By: William F. Galvin

NORTH HARWICH — There may not be much of a future for farming on Cape Cod, but teaching students about agriculture imparts skills valuable in other environmental fields that do have a future on the Cape. That's one of the chief concepts behind a proposal to create an agricultural education center at the 33-acre town-owned Main Street cranberry bogs in association with Cape Cod Regional Technical High School. ...

PLEASANT LAKE — Cape Cod Regional Technical High School students have a history of helping Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, and now they’re looking to take the people who live in Habitat homes for a ride. A bicycle ride, that is. Students at the Pleasant Lake school are repairing and restoring bicycles to give to Habitat residents. The project is part of a SkillsUSA Week community service initiative the schoo...

ORLEANS – The Cape Cod Tech-Cape Cod Academy co-op boys hockey team nearly went extinct. After not fielding a team during the 2019-20 season due to a lack of players, the two schools, bonded by their shared mascot, the Crusaders, have returned to the ice during the Fall II season. “I just feel lucky we’re able to have a season this year and lucky to get it in during the March-April window,” said Cape Tech-C...

ORLEANS – Although hundreds of students are enrolled at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School, Anna Bartolomey holds the distinction of being the school’s only student-athlete. Well, for this season anyway. Cape Tech opted out of interscholastic sports for both the fall and winter seasons due to upticks in COVID-19 cases, however, Bartolomey, a junior at the school, was given permission to compete for the...

Cape Cod Furies Skate To Ties Against Nantucket, D-Y

By: Brad Joyal

ORLEANS – It wasn’t for a lack of shots. That much is sure. Despite registering 34 shots on goal, the Cape Cod Furies couldn’t find the back of the net against Nantucket and its senior goaltender, Shea Harnishfeger, on Saturday at Charles Moore Arena. Two days later, the Furies skated to a 1-1 tie against Dennis-Yarmouth after Nauset Regional High School sophomore Emily Underhill scored the only goal for th...

Winter sports have gotten the green light at Monomoy and Nauset Regional High Schools, though Monomoy's season will see a bit of a delay due to the school's recent closure in the wake of new cases of COVID-19 among students. Originally, winter sports were supposed to start with tryouts and practices on Dec. 14, but two positive cases at MRHS necessitated the closure of the school until after the holiday break....

As I sit before my screen, fingers hovering above the keys, myriad song lyrics ping-pong through my mind. One from Eminem about having one shot, one opportunity. One from “Hamilton” about not throwing away my shot. Even one from Sinatra about doing it my way. But the truth is, while I'm excited about my next chapter, turning the page is also bittersweet. A little more than five years ago, I arrived on the Lowe...

PLEASANT LAKE — When students return to Cape Cod Tech this week, it’ll be anything but normal. They’re in a new building, but some of the classrooms aren’t completely finished. Parking is limited because the old school building has yet to be demolished. And, of course, there’s a pandemic that will limit the school to 50 percent capacity for the time being. This week will be an orientation period, with students...

Not only will the students at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich have a new building to check out on their first day of school, but they’ll also have a new way of doing pretty much everything, as will students at Nauset Regional High School in Eastham. The new routines are part of the districts’ plans for the reopening of schools, which they must send to the state no later than Aug. 14. The ori...

WELLFLEET – Members of the Cape Tech Class of 2020 might have been the last class to graduate from the soon-to-be demolished school building on Pleasant Lake Avenue, but they were the first to hold their graduation at the Wellfleet Drive-In, and while the venue was born of necessity due to the COVID pandemic, the event was one to remember. Graduates and their families rolled into the theater lot on June 4 with...

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...

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...

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...
