  • It’s A Runaway For Girls As Hawks Claim Cross Country Title; Boys Place Fourth

    With state championship meets still ahead, the season may not be over, but all of the hard work and training members of the Newtown High School girls’ cross country team have put in this fall has already paid off. The Nighthawks raced to the South-West Conference title in the 12-school championship meet, at Bethel High School, on October 21. Runners were treated to a balmy-for-fall afternoon with temperatures in the low 70s, a backdrop of turning leaves serving as the only reminder it’s getting toward the end of October.
