If it has to be fall already, at least there are sports….
It has been a nice start to the sports season for both the field hockey and golf teams.
Each team has two wins thus far,
with a Johnstown Moose tourney win under its belt over the past weekend and the defeat of two pretty good teams from larger schools ( schen and johnstown). The trend in the past few years had been to split the tourney and win one, lose the other. Picking up where they left off last year? Just maybe. More to come on this one, surely….
The golf team
haspicked up its first two wins in several years already this season after dropping thier opener. Second year head coach Mark Valentine said he was not sure, but had players telling him they might be the first wins in five years for the program. Coach said he had a good feeling about the season, but was wary of some of the powerhouse teams out there.
Today is the first day of high school sports officially, get out there and show your community and school spirit. If you don’t play, go and watch. If you could play, consider it. not everyone who plays in high school is an all-star. I know I wasn’t. But go cheer ’em on regardless.
Speaking of "Em"
I’m hearing about a poker tourney coming up in Poultney for the Whitehall Elks. Two tournaments. Sounds exciting. More to come on alla dis’….
