  • Run Newtown 5K At Ohio’s Miami University To Support NICE

    Newtown High School 2010 graduate Samantha Kent knew the weekend after the events of 12/14 that she wanted to create a community run on her current campus, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, that would help support Newtown students’ futures.

    “I was looking for these kids to grow up into a legacy rather than a tragedy,” Kent said this week.

    Miami University, she said, has always seemed to her as an extension of Newtown. Both places have a sense of home, she added.

  • Girls’ Lacrosse Squad Goes For Yet Another Title

    Year in and year out, the Newtown High School girls’ lacrosse team has been the squad to beat in the South-West Conference. The Nighthawks captured their eighth straight SWC championship last spring, ensuring that they are the group everybody will strive to take down again this spring.

    Although many SWC teams have been getting better in recent years, Newtown Coach Maura Fletcher notes, it doesn’t stand to be the least bit easy for anybody to take bragging rights from the Nighthawks.

  • Laxmen Look To Build Off Last Year’s Success

    Returning members of Newtown High School’s boys’ lacrosse team are hungry for a championship (or two) after reaching the semifinal round of both the South-West Conference and Class L state playoffs a year ago.

    That’s the good, encouraging news. The challenge — in addition to other formidable teams standing in the way — is that Newtown lost a large contingent of key players to graduation.

  • Sluggers Have New Look, Same Championship Goals

    Gone from last year’s South-West Conference champion squad are eight team members who graduated. Still in place, however, is the goal to succeed. Newtown High School’s baseball team is striving to repeat as SWC champs and, in fact, go deeper in the state tournament this time around.

  • Girls’ Track Team Seeks Development In Field Events

    Doug Russell is shooting for success in the short term with an eye on building for the future. The Newtown High School girls’ outdoor track and field coach has 70-plus participants to begin the campaign, and he is encouraging those new to the program to develop field events skills, hopeful that it will pay off down the road.

    Newtown has strong sprinters, distance runners, and hurdlers, but has had some struggles in the field events in the past Russell notes.

  • Boys’ Track Team Leans On Distance Prowess

    Led by a group of strong runners from the fall conference champion cross country team, Newtown High School’s boys’ outdoor track and field team is striving for some success this spring.

    “That’s going to be a big plus,” Coach Dan McIlrath said of the wealth of talent overlap from cross country season. “They’re going to really help out and put some points on the board.”
