  • The boys basketball beat sage park yesterday in Windsor 49-46.  An overall team effort on both the defensive and offensive ends helped the Cougars to the win.  Sage park hit the tying 3 with 10 seconds to play but the Cougars passed it in quickly to Jude Gonzalez and he hit a deep three with less than 3 seconds to give Timothy Edwards the win. 
  • Last night the Sage park Chargers "charged" into TE to take on the Lady Cougars in a CRAL match-up.  Unfortunately, TEMS fell 47-28 in the contest.  The Lady Cougars were led by Nour Abunasra with 10 points on the night.  Sharon Iweka added five, while Reagan Heafey-DeAngelis and Brooke Stapleton chipped in four points a piece.  Rounding out the Lady Cougar attack was Angie Santiago, Catherine Downes with two, and Avery Brochu had one from the charity stripe.  The Lady Cougars have a couple days off then are back on the hardwood away to Ellington on Thursday of next week.
  • Great job to our Cougar cheerleaders at the game yesterday! The team, lead by captains Jannaya Nti, Akenti Wiggs, Maddie Comella, and Kiara Plourde did a great job energizing the crowd!
  • Today for lunch in the Create line you can have Mashed Potato Bowl, in the Grill line you can have Turkey Cheese on a Pretzel Roll  and in the So Deli line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches. Have a great day and do your best to strive for five!
