There wasn’t much for Holly Mastronardi to build upon when she accepted the position to be Cape Cod Tech’s first full-time athletic trainer. After years of hiring emergency medical technicians or paramedics to work its games, Cape Tech made history in January when it hired Mastronardi, a Barnstable native and 2014 Barnstable High School graduate, as its first full-time athletic trainer in school history. “I...

By: William F. Galvin

PLEASANT LAKE — Over the past two years, working through a state grant, approximately 30 Cape residents have had the opportunity to graduate from a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) training program at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School. Only they’re not high schoolers. The HVAC program is run through The Community School program, which oversees adult education at Cape Tech. The intensive e...

HARWICH – For the first time in a few years, the Cape Cod Tech girls volleyball team is feeling a sense of stability. Between the addition of first-year coach Rachel Crooker and a rejuvenated outlook among the players, the Crusaders began the season with a 4-2 record and continue to improve each time they take the floor. “We had a lot of team issues last year but we have all kind of gotten past that and we’...

HARWICH – Every graduating class is unique. Each group of seniors has its own collection of students who excel in the classroom, on the field, stage or in their own respective area of interest. Each class has its own inside jokes; the students share happy memories and even some sad ones, too. Cape Cod Tech Regional High School’s class of 2021 will always hold the exclusive distinction of being the first class ...

There’s something to be said about heading into the offseason with a victory. That feeling of ending a season on a positive note can carry over into offseason workouts and help set the tone when a new year begins. For the Cape Cod Tech football team, which dropped its first three contests of the Fall II season, Saturday’s meeting at Bishop Connolly was crucial for that reason. The Crusaders made the most of th...

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...
