Going wire to wire in sports, beginning the season as No. 1 and finishing as state champions, can be like a high-wire act. Slip or make one wrong move, and it can be over in the blink of an eye.   Bishop England boys’ coach Ed Khouri knows the scenario all too well. Last year, the Bishops...
Given back-to-back winter storms, my fishing has been somewhat curtailed. When I have braved the elements, the redfish bite in the shallows has been pretty good.

“Outstanding!” said Robert Musso, this week’s winner of the Pigskin Pick'em. “I play every week, but I haven’t even been close since winning a couple years ago,” he wrote by email. “I watch a lot of sports and the contest makes the weekend a lot more interesting.”   His NFL division round 7-5...
Nate Gowan didn’t have much time to celebrate when he was named the first coach of the Philip Simmons High School boys’ lacrosse team last winter.   The Iron Horses were fielding a team for the first time in the school’s brief history, and Gowan was selected to guide the program. He was named...
