Week in Review: March 5 - March 11
Here is a look back at the past week.
Heading into this past week, three Oliver Ames athletics teams were making runs at a state title. At week's end, none remain. But, coaches and fans alike have praised the phenomenal seasons and tournament runs of the boys' basketball, girls' basketball and hockey teams.
The boys' basketball team was knocked out of the tournament on Monday night by Hopkinton. The girls' team was knocked out on Tuesday by Scituate and the hockey team fell in heartbreaking fashion to Franklin on Wednesday evening. We also had coverage of the Oliver Ames track and field team, which finished a successful season under head coach Mike Darling.
On Monday, Patch featured the Brown Billone Tennis Club, which recently opened it's doors under new ownership. The Tennis Club was formerly known as the Easton Tennis Club.
On Tuesday, while we learned that all Easton liquor selling establishments passed a recent sting, we also learned that Easton would have its' first contested Board of Selectmen race since 2005.
On Wednesday, the District Attorney in Westchester County, NY moved to drop charges against the friends of DJ Henry, who were arrested in the aftermath of Henry's shooting in Pleasantville, NY.
And, we learned about town officials this week, who pondered whether or not to approve a "Local Initiative" project on Foundry Street near New Pond. Officials and residents cited environmental and traffic concerns.
Our columnists brought us down memory lane and offered some insight this week, beginning with Avery Lee Williams, who wrote about school days at Furnace Village Elementary. Christine Iaccobucci wrote about finding homemaking happiness. Bob Havey wrote a column about nothing. Ross Muscato put together his Oliver Ames Hoop second team, spoke about some athletic history he missed in the past, and wrote about some people in Easton who were willing to bare it all.
