New Fall Athletic Offerings

The athletic department announced that two new athletic teams will be offered to students beginning with the fall of 2017.  A middle school cheerleading team and a freshmen / middle school girls volleyball team will be offered to go along with boys’ and girls’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ cross country, coed golf and the two girls’ volleyball teams that have been operating for many years.  It is expected that close to 200 students will register and participate in a fall athletic experience.  Registrations are handled online at www.familyid.com and must be completed prior to attending any tryout session.  It is important to register now in order that you will receive pertinent information regarding dates, locations and times for all sessions which do begin prior to the first day of school.  If you  have any questions please call the athletic department at (413) 783-2600 x121.

Daily Update

David Marsh put on a clinic for net play last night and Austin Benoit recorded his 1000th career assist as your boys’ varsity volleyball team defeated Central High by a score of 3 – 1 and advanced to the next round of play in the MIAA post-season tournament. Benoit and Marsh were helped greatly by the play of Colin Fairman, Joseph Torres, Esias Valentin, and a number of others. It was a great team effort. The guys will play again on Tuesday night at Chicopee Comp and Coach Chappell and the guys are looking for a big fan base over at Comp. Today the softball team will hold senior day with a 4:00 PM game against Smith Academy. If rain forces the postponement, the game will be played tomorrow. Good luck to all. Let’s get ready to fill the stands with Bulldog fans. Attention all students in grades 6 through 11. Informational meetings for all fall sports will be held beginning in early June. If you want to learn about boys or girls soccer, girls volleyball, boys or girls cross country or the golf team, please plan on attending one of the sessions. Remember all sports begin prior to the first day of school next fall.
