NWR7 varsity baseball wins over Norwich Tech

WINSTED – Coming off a state finals berth in 2016, the Highlanders were a tough team to pin down this year. Losing several key players to graduation, expectations were certainly lowered, and a middling 10-10 record and a five-game losing streak in April made it difficult to determine just how far the team had regressed.

NWR7 varsity softball team inches closer to title

WINSTED — All season long, the Highlanders (17-2) have refused to let anything get in the way of their goals, racking up win after dominant win on their way to the best record in the Berkshires.
With a chance to clinch at least a share of the league title at home against Lichfield (6-14) on Monday, May 22, the biggest obstacle Northwestern faced might have been the weather. The weather for the game was a drizzling, ugly rain that made balls slippery and threatened to send the teams home early without a conclusion.
The Highlanders would have none of that.

WINSTED – Taking on Wamogo in a double header on Monday, May 8, a depleted Yellowjackets squad (2-11) was swept unceremoniously by the Warriors (11-2), losing 16-0 in the early game and 15-0 in the nightcap. 
With their most experienced and talented pitcher, sophomore Anna King, still out with a concussion, and facing one of the most dynamic athletes in the league in Wamogo’s Cyrena Zemaitis, Gilbert could offer little resistance to the league frontrunners.
