Northwestern righty Vinny Tancreti out-dueled Yellowjacket’s senior ace Ryan Sholtis, not allowing a baserunner after the first inning en route to a three-hit, nine-strikeout complete-game victory.

A barometer for both teams early in the year, with the Highlanders one season removed from playing in the CIAC...

Record attendance at 91st Jumpfest

No records were broken by the ski jumpers this year but the crowd attending the Jumpfest competition on Saturday, Feb. 11, was the largest ever. Salisbury Winter Sports Association (SWSA) Director Willie Hallihan said that between 1,100 and 1,200 tickets were sold.
“And that doesn’t include the number of kids who came, which was probably another 500,” he added.
