  • Golf Team Rolling, Eyes Match With Pomperaug

    During the preseason, Coach Bill Flood already had his sights on the April 30 visit to Heritage Village Country Club and a clash with South-West Conference rival Pomperaug of Southbury. As that date fast approaches, both Flood’s Newtown High School boys’ golf team (6-0 heading into Thursday’s meet with Notre Dame-Fairfield) and defending regular season conference champion Pomperaug (2-0 in the early going) continue to look like the best teams in the conference, Flood said.

  • Laxmen Fall To Conard, Bounce Back In Conference Play

    After a 12-7 setback to nonconference foe Conard at Blue & Gold Stadium on April 19, Coach Glenn Adams’ viewpoint was that if his Newtown High School’s boys’ lacrosse team’s first loss was just a “bump in the road,” and his team rebounded, there was nothing to worry about. Fast forward a couple of days to the team’s return to South-West Conference play and a visit to Pomperaug of Southbury. Newtown didn’t allow that bump to turn into a bouncy ride, and won 12-3.

  • Girls’ Lacrosse Team Rebounds From First Loss

    Locked up in a tight battle at Blue & Gold Stadium on April 17, Newtown High School’s girls’ lacrosse team pulled away in the second half for a 15-9 triumph over Weston.
