Eagles clipped by Mustangs

SHEFFIELD — In Western Mass. Division IV girls’ basketball, few teams carry the reputations of the Mt. Everett Eagles and the Monson Mustangs in recent seasons.

New coach eases Spartans into season

New Monument Mountain boys’ basketball head coach Randy Koldys is no stranger to the Spartans program, but there has been a slight re-introduction period.

Winston’s big day paces Wildcats

Winston’s big day paces Wildcats

In each game this season, the Lee Wildcats have found a new way to win a game. Sometimes it’s the defense smothering its opponents. Sometimes the running game carries the load for four quarters.
