  • Inspired Again

    To the Editor:

    Last year, I sent a letter about how inspired I was by the run the Newtown Varsity Girls' Basketball team made at the states championship; it spoke to the heart and spirit of these fine young women. I sent that a day or two before they won it all by beating Mercy at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The feeling that drove me to write it came on the heels of one of the hardest-fought games I've ever seen a team play, the Hillhouse semi-final game.

  • Kolbe Steals One From NHS Girls

    MILFORD — A late-game comeback effort by Newtown High School’s girls’ basketball team to earn a win in the South-West Conference Tournament opener was stolen away by Kolbe Cathedral of Bridgeport on February 18.

    The fourth-seeded Cougars came up with two late-game steals, among their 16 in the contest, to fend off the No. 5 Nighthawks, 49-46, in a hard-fought SWC quarterfinal round clash at top seed Lauralton Hall’s gymnasium.
