    A couple of ties, followed by a tough-to-swallow loss to begin the season, left Coach Marc Kenney talking to his Newtown High School girls’ soccer team members, perhaps for the longest of the postgame evaluations that will take place this fall.

  • Gridders Seek Another SWC Trophy, Striving To Make Bigger Statement

    Members of the back-to-back South-West Conference champion Newtown High School football team have three-peat on their radar, but they’re also hoping for even more playoff success this fall. A state title has been on the minds of the coaches and players, and they believe that with the right work ethic, winning both championships is well within reach.

  • Boys’ Soccer Team Begins Season With Win

    The Newtown High School Boys Soccer team kicked off the regular season at Blue and Gold Stadium on September 10 with a 4-0 win over the Bunnell Bulldogs.

The defense also proved stingy as strong defenders junior Jamie Cochran and senior John Carlson, among others, stopped most of the Bulldog penetration throughout the game.
