Fall Sports Season Revs Its Engine

Classes started only yesterday at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, but the sports teams are well into the fall season, with a full week of play already under their belts.

Cross-Country Shines at Invitational

Sports action at the regional high school slowed this week, but the fields will again be busy following the Columbus Day holiday. Golf, boys’ soccer and field hockey all have home games this Tuesday, with golf continuing their home stand on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday, cross-country returns to the Island for a dual meet against Somerset.

Hell Week Burns Off the Summer Sloth

The girls of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School soccer team were on their practice field, arranged in a circle and doing leg lifts while holding a soccer ball between their feet. Beyond the trees at the far end of the field, the sun crept into the sky, casting a warm orange light on the team. With what seemed like a collective exhale, the team finished the warm-up exercise and prepared for the next one.

After Capturing EAC Title, Streak Of Wins Ends for Boys’ Soccer

The problem with streaks is that they must all come to an end. Even Joe DiMaggio had to strike out at some point.

Football Takes Center Stage Tonight

The Vineyard fields will be lit up tonight as the football team takes on Coyle-Cassidy and again tomorrow when boys’ soccer looks for revenge against the Nauset squad that handed them their first loss. Girls’ soccer will also be home this weekend, playing Scituate at noon on Saturday.
