  • Another congratulations goes out to the girls cross country team for their win against JFK yesterday.  Shennyn Giannelli was up front and all alone crossing the finish in just over 11 minutes.  Molly Caron pushed her way into the second position overall followed by Taylor Lord in third, both helping the team to their 15 to 47 win.  Two standout runs were made by 6th graders Sophia Gordon and Sophia Holovatska, who both moved up several positions within the team rankings.  The cougars look forward to the Harry Geraghty Invitational this Saturday at Nevers Park.  Good luck to all runners this weekend!  Just a reminder, there will be no cross country practice today, so please go home on your regular buses.

Avery Yelle scored twice, including a beautiful one time rocket shot with an assist by Rachel Turrer. Also scoring was Hailey Deptula, Sarah Stoddard, Meredith Pinto and Jillian Yelle.

  • The lady Cougars hosted their first home game of the season vs. Tolland yesterday afternoon. The game proved to be a true battle as both teams were fit and worked extremely hard. The Cougars struck first as Leighana Ferrabelo slotted a goal into the bottom corner to take the lead. The Cougars played exceptional in the first half with great passing in the midfield from Isabelle Beaulieu, Elise Suffish, Sam Grodovich, and Emerson Iacovelli. Shots on goal in the first half came from Arden Sansom and Katelyn Roux, with a few coming close to finding the back of the net. In the second half, the tides turned as Tolland found the net twice bringing the score to 2-1. Despite the outcome, the Cougars deserve much of the praise for all their hard work including amazing defensive efforts from Haley Testa, Sidney Montana, Huntyr Courtois, and Mikayla Evans. Goalkeeper Haley Butler recorded 12 saves on the day. The Cougars match up against JFK at home next Tuesday. Come out and support the team!

  • The Timothy Edward boys soccer team were back in action last night taking on the Tolland Eagles. The game was back and forth all night, however, the Cougars came out on top by the score of 2-1. The Cougars scored goals in both halves. The first was by Naol (Na-hol) Nifessa off a nice feed from Jake Gattuso. The Eagles scored a mere two minutes later bringing the score line to 1-1. The second half, the Eagles poured it on, however, the back line of Eric Montes de Oca, Vaughn Bizier, Jacob Gordon, and Alex Ezedine thwarted every opportunity they had. Jude Gonzalez made an appearance in goal and made three saves on the night. The second goal was scored by Taylor Legault of another feed from Gattuso. The Cougars are now 2-0 on the season. Congrats on the great win.

  • Congrats to the girls cross country team on their 22 to 39 victory over Ellington Tuesday.  The cougars took 8 of the top 10 positions with 6th grader Shennyn Giannelli finishing 1st overall in a time of 12 minutes and 12 seconds.  Alyssa Drenga left an Ellington runner in her wake with an intense kick up the final hill of the course coming in 3rd overall with Riley Baker not far behind in 5th place.  Rachel Richard had a strong performance at the finish as she out sprinted an Ellington runner at the last second.  The team looks forward to their next meet at JFK this Monday.  Good luck, ladies! 

  • The boys cross country team had their first meet of the season on Monday afternoon, and if this race was an indication of things to come, the team should have an outstanding season.  TE traveled to the hilly Ellington course and came out looking impressive as Sean Habeeb flew down the finishing hill to take the overall victory, with Aidan Walsh right on his heels.  The Cougars, sporting their shiny new uniforms, had 10 of the first 12 runners to cross the line, as TE took the 21 to 40 victory. Colin Grip, Ollie Durbois, and Max Plunske rounded out the top 5 for the team, and Stewart Christophel ran to a solid 14th place finish as the first 6th grader to finish. The boys are back in action on Monday afternoon when they travel to Enfield to face JFK.

  • The TE boys soccer team was in action last night taking on the Illing Rams of Manchester.  It was a gorgeous day for a game and the home team didn't disappoint.  Jake Gattuso led off the scoring onslaught six minutes into the contest.  Mason Layaw then assisted on a ball to Monteserin just one minute later making it 2-0.  Vaughn Bizier added a third before half time.  In the second half, Gattuso found the net two more times and Monteserin added his second of the game.  Illing score off a penalty in the second half but didn't trouble returning keeper Joey Bemis in goal that often.  The Cougars play on Thursday night at Tolland in the CRAL.
