  • The role coaches play in local athletes’ lives

    Nobody asked me, but...

    That was the way the late great New York Post sportswriter Jimmy Cannon used to start some of his columns that were as much think pieces as they were straight reportage.

  • PCYBL 8-U and 12-U Pirates continue winning in the WBA

    Go figure!

    For the past three years, the Port Chester High School varsity baseball Rams have been struggling to play .500 ball, getting close this year by going 9-11 and making a rare playoff appearance after finishing up 1-19 the year before.

  • PCYBL 8- and 12-U Pirates teams impress in slugging starts in WBA, tourney games

    Despite their season-long turnaround where they went from 1-19 last year to 9-11 and a playoff berth this past season, the Port Chester High School baseball Rams were still basically a good-field, no-hit team. They had a definite power outage when it came to hitting the long ball.

  • A team of MVPs
    Congratulations to the Port Chester Soccer Club B05C team on becoming WYSL 11U Champions. As the team manager for the last four years, I have seen this team go through a few rough years winning very few to no games during past seasons
  • Athletic scholarship words to the wise to P.C. student athletes willing to listen

  • RB/PC 11/12-U Little League girls make it to district championships

  • Looking for a sponsor to help kick off proposed P.C. Athlete of Year award
    It is déjà vu time with action required on this writer's suggestion for an annual award naming the best Port Chester High School student-athlete, that award to be granted by a community organization such as the Kiwanis, Rotary, 40/40 or sports booster clubs at an annual dinner feting the best of the P.C. athletic best.
  • Yankees beat Rays 3-2 in pitcher's battle for Rye Brook Majors Little League title

    Blind Brook High School senior Brandon Hamlet was named to the Westchester-Putnam All-Section baseball team with fellow senior Max Picker earning honorable mention on the All-Star team, an indication of how good the quality of play is in and around Rye Brook. That excellence extends to the way the girls play the game.

  • Unsung P.C. athletic heroes & heroines 'Rexit' with a thanks for memories salute

    It was a farewell to high school: Goodbye to all those senior concerns about teachers, books, SATS, college choices, dates and tests, academic as well as athletic. Graduation has come and gone from Port Chester High School as of last Friday, but the memories of what the scholar-athletes of the Class of 2016 accomplished on the playing fields linger on like the fleshed out notes of an unfinished symphony. 

  • Golden Dozen Lady Ram selections: Best female athletes in Class of 2016

    It is déja vu all over again with another Port Chester High School graduation coming up Friday (June 24), an annual ritual that includes caps and gowns, pomp and circumstance, speakers and more, all leading up to diplomas and an ending to a high school career with a future beckoning after a four-year rite of passage filled with events none of the grads could have anticipated when their journey began.
