This time around, in the D3 final, Taconic came up a little short but considering all the seniors who graduated from the state title team the year before, it made for a two-year run of which few schools can boast.   Meanwhile, the Pittsfield High softball team made its own

The hope is that many will use the equipment with friends to make exercise fun. DALTON, Mass. — The Senior Center has made it a bit easier for people to be healthy and fit even later in life.   Through a grant from AARP, a half-dozen pieces of outdoor workout equipment have been installed on the property.   The hope is to make it easier for the seniors to get moderate workouts alongside their peers to stay healthier.   "The purpose of this park is to make exercise fun.

  DALTON, Mass. — One in a long line of successful Wahconah Regional High School athletes was back at the school Thursday to tell the student body to relish their failures.   "Surround yourself in strength," was the theme of Matt Whitcomb, a state high school champion, 1996 Wahconah grad and, more recently, coach on the U.S. Women's Cross Country Ski team that won the nation's first-ever Nordic gold medal at the 2018 Olympic Games.   Whitcomb told the students that no matter what they were doing — whether athletics, academics or some other pursuit — the secret to success is to surround yourself with successful people and feed on
