RIVERTON — A fog hung close to the Farmington River, somewhat obscuring anglers as they took part in Saturday’s annual Riverton Fishing Derby. But the fog didn’t prevent smiles popping out like little rays of sunshine on the youngsters and adults participating in the hallowed event that traditionally kicks off the start of a new fishing season.

Water polo: quite possibly the world’s hardest sport

karaw@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Few sports require as much endurance as water polo. For the match, athletes are not allowed to touch the floor of the pool at any time. They must tread water or swim and can only rest during timeouts.
The Hotchkiss School girls water polo season is now at its halfway point. The team has yet to chalk up a win, but coach Laura Barrosse-Antle is optimistic.
“We’re a really young team with a lot of talent,” she said. The team is made up predominantly of freshmen and sophomores, and, “We’re going to be looking at a lot more improvement as they get more game experience.”

LIME ROCK — Lime Rock Park held an open house on Thursday, April 21, and enthusiasts of fast cars braved the chilly winds and overcast skies for the chance to take a ride with a driving instructor, learn how to come out of a skid, and take a couple of laps around the track.
Nuno Peres of Woodbridge, N.J., was making his first trip to Lime Rock. He had just finished his three laps with an instructor at the wheel and was grinning from ear to ear.
Peres said the instructor “was talking to me the whole time. Watch the guy in front, watch how to take corners.”

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.
