  • 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.
  • ALL TEMS student are invited to "TAKE THE CHALLENGE" and sign up for this year's AMC-8 competition.

  • TE Field hockey team continued its winning ways with a 4-2 victory over Farmington. 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 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!

  • Tuesday afternoon brought great running weather and 2 victories for the TE boys Cross Country team. Kyle Sullivan took the overall victory, leading the Cougars to a 19 to 41 win over Saint James and 15 to 48 over East Hartford.  Alex Matus ran to his best finish of the season with his 9th placing, and Owen Bushman continued his strong running with a top 15 spot.  Vaishnab Nanda used an impressive finishing kick to capture his best time of the year and Alex Turco ran a great race as he has improved his finishing time in each race so far.  The team will be looking to continue their winning streak next Wednesday when they travel to Ellington.
  • The girls Cross Country team suffered a loss of 15 to 40 and celebrated a win of 15 to 50 at their tri-meet against St. James of Manchester and East Hartford last night at Nevers Park.  Audrey Manning led a strong TE pack taking 6th through 12th place in the race including Olivia Petgrave who came in 5th on the team and 9th overall, not allowing a broken finger stop her from taking 42 seconds off her season best time.  Anneliese Mills and Sophia Peruccio both busted out and had huge personal records by over a minute.  A job well done to all runners!  Good luck at your first away meet against Ellington next Wednesday.  
  • The lady Cougars faced off against East Hartford yesterday afternoon at Cougar Stadium. The Cougars proved to be too well-rounded for East Hartford. The game was one of first's, as three of the goal scorers claimed their first goal as a Timothy Edwards Cougar. In the first half, efforts from Taryn Suffish, Iniya Raja, and Sarah Gordon were too much for East Hartford to handle. Only a few minutes after kick-off, Lexi Wheeler swung a threatening cross into the box finding the foot of the striker Candace Walsh to bring the score to 1-0. After that, the goals tumbled in as Taryn Suffish rounded out the half with another goal finding the bottom corner off an assist from Huntyr Courtois. In the second half, the Cougars evenly distributed the ball throughout the field with great midfield play from Emily Ledger, Emerson Iacovelli, and Rhianna O'Meara. Lexi Lilly found the back of the net twice yesterday proving that she is a valuable asset to the Cougars offense. Lilly's second goal was assisted by the captain, Lexi Wheeler, who led the team with two assists on the day. Shortly after, Emerson Iacovelli helped the Cougars increase their lead with a beautiful solo finish. Rounding off the scoring was was Emily Ledger who was assisted by Abby Peruccio late in the match. Peruccio and Ledger posted their first points as Cougars as well. Scoring chances late in the second half came from Mikayla Evans, Huntyr Courtois, and Sam Wunsch. Rounding out the defensive end, Ellinor Edstrom and Megan Martin were relentless in their efforts to keep the East Hartford offense at bay. Overall, a solid win by the Cougars as they look forward to Sage Park in their last home game of the season. The game takes place on Thursday at 3:30. Come out and enjoy what should be a great game!

Ria Saxena took the shutout with several great saves. In the second game the Cougars fought a hard offense and finished tied with Avery Middle School 0-0.

  • The TE Boys Soccer team took on the Falcons of East Hartford last night and came away with a 1-1 draw on the night.  After controlling much of the play in the first half, TE were unable to capitalize on numerous chances in front of goal.  The Falcons pressed on and scored off a deflected shot in which Keeper Trevor Lussier could do nothing about.  After half-time, the cougars continued to press.  The falcons refuted the cougar attack until midway through the second half.  Ben Bernstein capitalized on a pass back in the box and buried his chance to make the score 1-1.  After continuing to put pressure on the Falcon goal, the final whistle blew as the Cougars felt they could have come away with all three points.  Jaideep Naik, Alex Magarian and Xavier Crane were steady once again in defense.  Jack Stricker and Dylan Hutton provided sparks of the bench.  The Cougars next game is Thursday night at Sage Park, their last away game of the season.

  • The girls cross country celebrated with a 2nd place trophy after the Harry Geraghty Invitational meet at Nevers Park Friday.  Audrey Manning was the first TE runner to cross the finish in 10th overall.  Kaitlyn Dempsky was only two seconds behind taking 27 seconds off her season best.  Nine girls from TE earned medals by finishing in the top 25 overall, including Katelyn Baumgartner who had a great race shaving well over a minute off her personal best.  Brooke Chagnon, Emma Metevier, Olivia Hedley, and Caroline Klein also beat their fastest times on the home course by over a minute.  Sixth grader Aricka Boosa ran her first race Friday after coming off an injury and finished 11th on the team, almost breaking into the top 25 overall.  Congratulations to the boys team who took home a trophy as well for placing first at the meet.  Good luck to all runners on Tuesday at your home meet against East Hartford and St. James.
