ADAMS, Mass. -- In its first year hosting the River Valley Athletic League cross country championships, the teams from BArT Charter were hospitable.   The course at the Greylock Glen? Slightly less so.   “We definitely have the hardest 5K course in the county, I think,” Berkshire Arts and Technology coach Bennjamin Griffin said on Wednesday afternoon. “There’s 550 feet of elevation gain, and there are four significant climbs on it. I think some of the kids come in a little underprepared if they’re from other schools.”   That cannot be said of individual champions Mac Sloan-Anderson of Greenfield’s Four Rivers and Delaney Bullock of

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Soccer Domain Academy's travel teams managed four wins in five matches on the road around the commonwealth the weekend of Oct. 22 and 23.   From the outset, SDA controlled the game with greater amount of possession leading to a range of opportunities for SDA to score. The organized and structured defending limited GPS to very few attacking opportunities. SDA took the lead around 10 minutes before the break following another exciting attacking play by the team.   As the second half got under way, SDA continued to maintain the ball and achieve a higher possession percentage, the visitors created opportunities but couldn’t convert.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Family YMCA has taken over the administration of the Catholic Youth Center, keeping the programs operating the same as they always had.

  In July, the CYC and the YMCA reached an agreement in which the YMCA will handle the business end of the programming from program registration to managing the finances. The YMCA has put the CYC staff on its payroll to continue the youth sports programming the center has offered for years.   "Program-wise, it is the same people running it as last year," YMCA Executive Director Randy Kinnas said.   Since July, the two groups have run a flag football program as well as a volleyball season.

Professional park builders will lead the efforts that began on Friday.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It was almost a year ago exactly when Eddie Taylor went before the Parks Commission and said the renaming of Pitt Park was "reigniting a fuse."   Rosemary and the Rev. Willard Durant had inspired community and were a positive inspiration to many on the West Side and a packed room last October of supporters rallied behind changing Pitt Park's name to honor the former AME Price Memorial Church pastor.   The name change for those in support was not just a name, it was the start of a movement.    "This is bigger than the park name.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Highland Park will now be renamed after the late Christopher R. Porter.   The Parks Commission approved the renaming after a hearing on Tuesday. Porter owned and operated C.R. Porter Builders, working on many of the city's parks, and was known in the community for his philanthropy and voluntarily maintaining the park. He died last December at age 54.   A group of citizens banded together to push for not only the renaming of the park but to also improve it.    "We've already raised $4,000 in a heartbeat. It was simple. It is going to be one of the nicest parks you could ever imagine," former Mayor Gerry Doyle said of the

Weyessa “Ace” McAlister is making a big impact on the Trinity College men’s cross country team this fall.   The 2015 Monument Mountain graduate, who did a post-graduate year at Northfield Mount Hermon, placed 11th for the Bantams on Saturday at the Connecticut College Invitational in Waterford, Conn.   His 8-kilometer time of 25 minutes, 11 seconds was about a minute off the pace set by the meet’s winner. But McAlister finished 28 places ahead of the next member of his Trinity team, which finished in the middle of the field, ninth out of 20 schools.   Earlier this season, the Great Barrington resident was named one of the school’s Bantams of the

DALTON, Mass. — Michaela DeFoe put a whole new spin on the term "beach volleyball."   Earlier this fall, the Wahconah volleyball captain recruited her teammates to help her tackle a big problem in her hometown of Becket.   "Basically, the beach was redone a few years ago," she recalled on Friday. "They put gravel above the old beach and then a tarp and then the sand. After one one winter, it started to erode, and all the stones started to come up through the fabric."   DeFoe, a lifeguard at Becket Beach and a Senior Girl Scout looking for a service project for worthy of the organization's Gold Award, decided to take on the problem of

It was an amazing weekend last week for Soccer Domain Academy, which earned maximum points with teams playing at Berkshire Community College and those travelling around the state.   After a tough start to the season, the girls looked better organized and more disciplined, limiting the visitor’s attacks. SDA took their chances well and went into the break ahead 1-0.   SDA continued this performance into the start of the second half, remaining defensively organized as well as the midfield looking to win the ball back quickly and high up the field. Through this hard work SDA claimed its second goal, winning the ball on the halfway line before creating another
