There was an added incentive to swim/bike/run as fast as possible on Saturday morning, Aug. 11, at the 10th Sharon Sprint Triathlon sponsored by the town’s recreation department and organized by Rec Director Matt Andrulis Mette.

The sky was cloudy and threatened rain (something new and different); anyone who wanted to miss the downpour was going to have to finish quickly.

The triathlon started in the relatively warm waters of Mudge Pond at the Sharon town beach. Fifty swimmers plunged in between the docks on one side and the water lilies on the other, then swam out to...

Ultimate rises in popularity at Marvelwood

karaw@lakevillejournal.com

KENT — The Marvelwood School started its ultimate team seven years ago, and Athletic Director Glenn Sanchez says that the team is “one of the best things I’ve ever added.”
The game, which was invented in the 1960s using a Frisbee disc, only started to rise in popularity recently. In the past, the sport (which is called simply “ultimate” due to trademarks) was almost entirely restricted to informal play on the campuses of high schools and colleges, in intramural or club leagues.

Age: 15

Years on varsity: one
How did you start playing baseball? My mom was always a baseball fan. I’ve been playing for fun since I was 4.
What made you try pitching? When I was younger, the coaches used to test out different players as pitchers. They put me on the mound one day, and I guess I was OK at it. I started pitching more and more often.

Bitter cold but ‘it was worth it’

First day of fishing
cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Normally, fishermen try to outdo each other with tales of their magnificent catch.
But on a chilly first day of fishing season (April 16), most of the fishermen and women tried to outdo each other with tales of how cold their hands got while trying their luck out on Lake Wononscopomuc.
Certainly plenty of trout were hauled in on lines dangled from the shore and from boats of many shapes and sizes. The state had stocked the lake with 6,000 fish in March. Lakeville Town Grove Manager Stacy Dodge said they were, “beautiful, a very nice size.”

Special Olympic swimmers inspire

LAKEVILLE — Every athlete, and certainly every Olympic athlete, has a story to tell, of dedication, love of their sport and the process of moving up through the ranks, seeking success and avoiding elimination.
Perhaps this is true to an even greater degree for the Special Olympians, a group of athletes who must overcome the challenges of their own disabilities as well as the challenges that mainstream athletes face.

Sharon bridge scores April 7

SHARON — There were four full tables for duplicate bridge at Good Neighbors on Low Road in Sharon on March 23. The crowd was reduced because the van at Noble Horizons dared not venture out, fearful of the threatened snowstorm, so we missed some very popular players who could not join us.
We used the Howell Movement instead of the more customary Mitchell Movement due to the small number of players. The average score was 42.
