Approximately 100 Nauset Regional High School students participated in a school walkout Monday morning to show support for Drew Locke, the varsity boys hockey team’s coach who was relieved of his duties last week.

ORLEANS – Five years ago, when Kaelyn Mayo was in eighth grade, her friends tried to convince her that she should leave the Monomoy school district and attend Nauset Regional High School so that she could play high school hockey for Nauset’s girls team. Mayo’s first reaction was that she didn’t need to leave Monomoy to play high school hockey — she let her friends know that Nauset served as the host school f...

Even while manning the blueline as a defenseman for the Cape Cod Furies, senior captain and Harwich resident Julia Weiner is still determined to use her skills and athleticism to make an impact at the offensive end of the ice. That’s exactly what Weiner did during Saturday’s senior night game against Old Rochester; the blueliner scored two goals and assisted on another to help send the team’s four seniors out ...

If you’ve tuned into much of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics coverage, it’s likely that you’ve caught wind of the biggest trend in winter sports: curling, the game that is centered around sliding a 42-pound granite stone down a sheet of ice in a similar manner to shuffleboard. The sport’s popularity in the United States has boomed in recent decades, as evident by the USA Olympic team’s decision to have the US...

ORLEANS – Stop by Charles Moore Arena on a Monday or Wednesday afternoon and you’ll catch a glimpse of the passion many girls from the Lower Cape share for figure skating. While young toddler-aged girls crisscross from one side of the ice to the other, so too do the members of the Nauset Figure Skating Club, a Nauset-sponsored club team that is also open to high school girls from Monomoy and Barnstable.

It’s not often that athletes have pre-existing relationships with first-year coaches who are hired from outside of the program. Most often, players and coaches need at least a year or two to establish an understanding of the expectations the two sides have for each other. Monomoy Regional High School athletic director Karen Guillemette is hopeful the school’s field hockey team will be able to hit the ground ru...

HARWICH – Josh Wiggin is unapologetically energetic. His passion and energy are among the traits he said he inherited from his mom, Maureen, and they come out on the basketball court, especially when the Cape Cod Tech junior forward is having success. Wiggin was at his best — and most spirited — Feb. 3 when the Crusaders boys basketball team hosted Mayflower Athletic Conference rival Norfolk Aggie. Wiggin scor...

By: Brad Joyal

RANDOLPH – Although the spark didn’t arrive until a little more than midway through the third period, the Mashpee-Monomoy boys hockey team made sure to capitalize on the moment when it finally came. The Monarchs co-op team shook off a slow start Friday afternoon to pull away for a 3-0 victory over Cardinal Spellman at Joseph J. Zapustas Arena after scoring three goals in the final six minutes and 24 seconds of...

HARWICH – The game quickly went sideways for the Monomoy girls basketball team. It seemed as though the squad was destined for a lopsided loss when it hosted unbeaten Dennis-Yarmouth last Thursday night. But the Sharks didn’t waver when the Dolphins exploded for nearly a double-digit lead in the opening minutes. They regrouped and began making stops at the defensive end of the floor, where they forced turnover...

SANDWICH – It’s hard enough being a high school wrestler when everything is going your way. Between training sessions and maintaining your desired weight, the journey leading up to each match provides a grueling test of stamina and mental fitness. With all of the hard work required to prepare, it can feel like a bit more than a gut punch when matches get canceled, a common occurrence as the sport that requires...

HARWICH – While the measure of a team’s success can often be traced to the scoreboard and standings, Cape Cod Tech girls basketball coach Chris Leonard is keenly aware of what his team is up against this winter.
