Naugatuck sinks Woodland in the pool

0
BEACON FALLS — Knowing the next day they faced one of the Naugatuck Valley League “big dogs,” as Woodland head coach Tom Currier put it, the Hawks gathered Monday night for that time-honored team-building ritual: the team dinner. But as of Tuesday, the Black and Gold may be in the market for a new tradition—and it’s not because they lost to three-time defending league champ Naugatuck, 94-85. “We had some bad meatballs last night, so a lot of [the boys] were sick today,” Currier said, laughing. “We’re trying to track down who made the meatballs.” The Greyhounds showed little mercy for their unhealthy hosts, until the meet was in hand and they swam the last three events as exhibitions. Naugy won the first eight swims, led by Kyle Conrad and Chris Branco, who captured two apiece.

NHS girls’ tennis tops Wilby on senior day

NAUGATUCK — It was Sunday night, less than 24 hours before senior day, and Greyhounds girls’ tennis coach Jodie Ruccio had a dilemma on her racket. “I was saying, ‘What do I do for senior night for tennis?’ the first-year skipper, better known as a hoops coach, said during Tuesday’s home match against Wilby, which Naugatuck won, 7-0. “You know, for basketball, it’s you get on the PA, you say something before the game, you do the flowers and the basketballs and all that sort of stuff. So I called a couple of the girls, and they’re great. They took care of everything. We have a very strong sophomore class. So the sophomores did a bunch of things, we got some flowers, the parents are here. It’s nice.”

Diver honored at PJF opening ceremony

NAUGATUCK — The sky above Peter J. Foley Little League Stadium alternated between sunshine and cloudiness Sunday afternoon, a sort of organic reflection of the sentiments shared by the venerable building’s several hundred patrons. The opening ceremony of the league’s 61st season showcased both ends of the emotional spectrum: Joy in the baby-toothed smiles of ballplayers bounding across the diamond for the first time this spring, and sorrow in the wistful tears of almost everyone who knew Dustin Diver, the former borough baseball standout, who died unexpectedly in December, at age 31.
