  • Good morning TE. I was looking through last year’s yearbook and I noticed that all three grades chose soccer as their favorite sport. If you were one of those who love the game, I have a treat for you. Next Friday, at 6 pm on the soccer fields at Rye Street, the South Windsor High School Boys Soccer Team is playing their rival, Manchester, under the lights. This is a once a year event that draws over 500 fans, so please come join us. Cost is only $2 to attend, and if you come in your South Windsor Soccer jersey or t-shirt, you get in free. You can’t beat that! Last time we played Manchester, we won 1-0 in overtime, so this game should be a battle. See you then! 
  • Joke of the week: Hello TE, it's time for the joke of the week. Why did the man put a clock under his desk? He wanted to work Over Time!!!!

  • The Cougars matched up against Sage Park yesterday afternoon and took home a 3-1 win. The Cougars played arguably their best soccer of the season dominating possession in the first half with precision passes from Taryn Suffish, Rhianna O'Meara, Emerson Iacovelli, Lexi Wheeler, and Sam Wunsch. The Cougars relentless pressure led to their first goal as Taryn Suffish found the foot of Marybeth Grasso for the Cougars first of the day. Moments later, an ambitious throw in from Lexie Wheeler led the speedy Suffish in to space as she skillfully sped by the Sage Park defenders. The solo effort extended the lead 2-0. Later in the game, Rhianna O'Meara placed a through ball to Grasso giving the striker her second goal on the day. During the second half, remarkable defense from Candace Walsh, Megan Martin, and Ellinor Edstrom maintained the Cougar lead. Outstanding play throughout the game was had by Emily Ledger, Iniya Raja, and Lexi Lilly. The Lady Cougars look forward to their next away game on Tuesday against JFK. 
  • The TEMS Field Hockey team suffered it's first loss in overtime against Stafford Middle School yesterday with a score of 3-2.

Kayden Burke, Josie Foley Maddy Riopel, Maya Lagasse, Grace Reed and Christina Bellizzi did a great job distributing the ball throughout the game.

  • The TE Boys Soccer team battled Sage Park last night, coming away with a 5-0 victory.  The first half was blinding due to the low sun, but the Cougars pushed through to put four past the Chargers keeper.  Ben Bernstein opened up the scoring, followed by Aiden Iacovelli, John Montana, with a Neymar-esque free kick, going just around the wall, and Andrew Bell, who got some time out on the right wing.  In the second half the cougars laid off the throttle and only tallied one additional goal.  Aadi Dey finished nicely with his left foot bringing the Cougars total to five.  The Cougars still have two games remaining next week and serve as host to JFK on Tuesday and Tolland on Thursday.  Hope you can come and cheer on the boys.

  • Yesterday afternoon, the lady Cougars traveled to East Hartford to take on the Falcons. The Cougars started strong with pressure from the midfield and forwards. The Cougars dominated all sixty minutes with goals in the first half coming from Marybeth Grasso, Haydin Courtois, and Taryn Suffish. Assists in the first half came from Candace Walsh and Sam Wunsch. As the Cougars approached the second half, the Cougars were able to seal the win with efforts from Mikayla Evans, Abby Peruccio, Leighana Ferrabelo and Huntyr Courtois. A few Cougar highlights include Haydin Courtois and Arden Sansom scoring their first goals of the season as well as TE's Rhianna O'Meara and Emerson Iacovelli leading the team with two assists. Additionally, Lexi Lilly added to the Cougar tally with two late goals on the day. Maria Galley maintained the shoutout and had two saves during the match. The Cougars look forward to their next match on Thursday at Sage Park.

  • The TE Boys soccer team was in action last night, taking on the Falcons of East Hartford.  The sun was out and the temperature was perfect for a soccer game as both teams scrapped away at each other in the first half.  John Montana was shredding the defense, but was unable to capitalize.  Finally, the Cougars were able to get on the score sheet.  Montana glided through the defense, his shot went off the post and ricocheted off a couple players to the feet of Jack Stricker.  After composing himself neatly in front of goal, he finished his chance smartly.  At the half the Cougars were up justifiably.  In the second half it was the Falcon side who pressed.  Ultimately, the Cougars defense broke ever so slightly after some indecision and communication errors.  The Falcon forward rushed in to take advantage of the situation and brought them level in the game.  Fewer chances in the second half meant that TE would have to settle for the draw, the second one of the season against East Hartford.  The Cougars next play this Thursday against Sage Park after school.  Please come out and cheer on the boys.

  • The Girls Cross Country team ran against Ellington yesterday and suffered a loss of 22 to 35.  The cougars had a fantastic start to the race, with only one Ellington runner in the top 6, and TE ended strong on the steep downhill finish.  Coming in first overall was Audrey Manning, out front and all alone by 17 seconds.  Mayee Mavillapalli and Ella Heredia both had excellent races as they moved up several spots on the team.  Also running well was Amritha Suresh, who had one of her best performances ending the race in an all out sprint.  Speaking of all out sprints, the Drenga sisters, Katelyn and Alyssa, both had three Ellington runners right on their heels at the finish, but they must have made a pact to show no mercy as they both out sprinted the Ellington runners by mere seconds.  Captain Sophia Hollister cheered her heart out with Ciara Turco and Samantha Rowell who remain spirited despite persistent injuries.  A big thanks to managers Tracy Doan and Varsha Chilakapati who have been so helpful running the home meets and also came to our away meet to support teammates.  Great job to all runners, and good luck at your upcoming league meet! 
  • The Boys Cross Country team added another victory to their season total on Wednesday afternoon when they had a strong win over Ellington Middle School.  Kyle Sullivan held off a sprinting Nikhil Kikanamada as the duo took the top 2 overall spots in the Cougars' 19 to 42 win.  Max Plunske crossed the line in the top 20 , followed closely by Nathan Grilli, both having their best finishes of the year, and Alex Belardi gave it his all on the finishing downhill for his fastest time of the year.  The win has the boys finish the regular season with only one loss and the team gets 2 weeks to prepare for the league championship race on the 25th.
  • Our second annual TEMS Walk-A-Thon was a great success!   Students, staff, and the Cougar all had a fantastic time! Shout out to Mother Nature for holding off the rain.  We have big news to share today. As of last night, we exceeded our $18,000 school goal! Thank you to all TEMS students, staff, family and friends for your support in making our fundraiser a success! We will declare the individual, team and grade winners after the close of the pledge period next week.  But in the meantime, a shout out to Team Garnet for joining the $2,000 plus club and reaching their goal!!!  Vincent Ryder is still holding strong as the 6th grade leader.  Tony DeMartino is in the lead for 7th grade, and Richard Collins currently has the lead for 8th.  The Lime Team currently has the overall lead for the pizza party, but The Scarlet Team is close behind them! Keep up the great work!  Remember the pledge period will close next week on Monday October 16th.

  • The TE Boys Soccer team played host to Ellington last night only to fall 3-0 to the Wildcats.  The first half started off like the last game against Illing, only the Cougars were unable to put a scare into the Wildcats as they stormed out to a 3-0 half time lead.  However, in the second half the Cougars ramped up their intensity and declawed the Wildcats attack, keeping them at bay for the second half.  Alex Magarian, AJ Faust, Xavier Crane, Aadi Dei, and Aryan Kalia pushed hard through the midfield and intercepted passes one after the other.  John Montana and Jake Gattuso pressed up front and gave the Wildcat defense trouble most of the second half.  The Cougars fall to 2-5-1 on the season with 4 games to play.  Up next the cougars play East Hartford next Tuesday.  If they win the remainder of their game they will finish above .500 on the season.  Come out and cheer on the boys.
  • The Lady Cougars matched up against longstanding rivals Ellington in a physical game ending in a 1-0 loss. Throughout the game, the Cougars had a number of chances on cage, but couldn't seem to find the back of the net. Outstanding defensive play came from Megan Martin and Ellinor Edstrom as the duo consistently drew pressure and cleared the ball up the field. Scoring attempts in the game came from Lexi Wheeler, Emily Ledger, Marybeth Grasso, and Taryn Suffish. However, as it turned out the Ellington defense was too strong for the Cougar offense. Chances were had on both sides, but it was ultimately Ellington who took the victory. Cougars deserving recognition for their outstanding play included Maria Galley, Candace Walsh, Rhianna O'Meara, Lexi Lilly, Haydin Courtois, and Ella Suppicich.

Kelli Mann came away with a hat trick with Kayden Burke finalizing the win with a goal in the final seconds of the game. Maliya Haddock controlled the midfield and also had an assist in the first half. Kayden Burke assisted on two of Mann's goals. Zoe  Calhoun played well at mid and in the circle. Molly Frank, Grace Reed, Maya Lagasse, Tori Jarvis, Kaitlin Hardy, and Grace Rich all played well keeping the ball outside their defensive circle. Giana Bellody, Nicole Mann, Alexis Dabrowski demonstrated superb passing on the offensive line. Isabelle Goodrich, Abby Bergstrom, Alexa Parada and Amanda Kozuira displayed great hustle on both ends of the field. TE travels to Suffield today.

  • The Timothy Edwards Cougars faced off against the Sage Park Chargers yesterday afternoon. The game started evenly match with both sides threatening to score. However, the Cougar press was too much for the Chargers to handle as Taryn Suffish intercepted a pass and found the foot of Sam Wunsch. Wunsch was cool, calm, and collected as she poked the ball into the back of the net bringing the score to 1-0. Outstanding tackling came from the 7th graders Iniya Raja and Emily Ledger as both players never quit and worked hard throughout the game. Additional chances in the first half came from Candace Walsh and Sarah Gordon. The Cougars came out a bit slow in the second half, but maintained the clean sheet with outstanding defensive play from Ellinor Edstrom Megan Martin, Haydin Courtois, and Ella Suppicich. In the second half, midfielders Rhianna O'Meara and Taryn Suffish contributed to the Cougar attack as each held three shots on the day. Late in the second half, Lexi Wheeler found the lower left corner off a penalty kick. The third and final goal came from a free kick as Wheeler demonstrated true composure again, sailing the ball over the top of the defending players and into the back of the net. The goal was said to remind fans of the blistering free kicks from the Real Madrid superstar Christiano Ronaldo. Maria Galley rounded out the team in goal making four saves on the day. Galley's exceptional play has kept the Cougars in close games and for the last two, she has kept two clean sheets. Galley's outstanding play has been vital to the Cougar's success. The Cougars attend their first away game against rivals Illing at 3:30 on Tuesday. Come show your support!
  • The the boys soccer team played their final away game last night, traveling to Windsor to take on the Chargers of sage Park. The contest was settled early with five goals being scored in the first half. On the scoresheet were John Montana, Sam Melashenko, Andrew Bell, Brian Fishman, and Ben Bernstein. The second half was very similar to the first, however, the Cougars were more patient and probed well in attack. Four goals in the second half were scored by Andrew Monteserin who scored two goals, Dylan Hutton, and Jake Gattuso.  Trevor Lussier and four others were credited with the shutout. The Cougars next game is their first one at home this season on Tuesday. Come out and cheer on the boys!
