"Normal" may still be a long way off.   But some of the usual suspects were back in their normal positions, at the top of the heap, during 2021's sports seasons.   The state's high school athletics governing body went 14 months without awarding a state championship. And once it did, a Berkshire County dynasty claimed another one.   The trend continued in the fall when one perennial power defended its state title and another earned a return trip to the biggest sports venue in New England.   Here is a look back at some of the athletes and teams making headlines in 2021.   Taconic baseball Coach Kevin Stannard's program earned its fourth straight

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — After receiving an extensive makeover, Ski Bousquet will open this winter with many new — and some old — features.

The most obvious renovation is the modern 15,000-square-foot lodge that greets visitors from Dan Fox Drive.  

A far cry from the original, more than 50-year-old facility, it features a gathering space, expanded dining options, a full bar, and plenty of outdoor seating. The building was designed by Allegrone Construction.

Skiers and snowboarders can still frequent their favorite trails such as Drifter, Russell, Parker, Main Street, and the intimidating Icicles if they dare.

The chairlifts will also maintain their original titles as

  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Deciding where you are going to go to college can be a long, painstaking process that stretches out over months.   Or, sometimes, you just know.   Taconic senior Sam Sherman has known for a long time that he could play college baseball, and he had been talking to several different schools about his future plans.   Merrimack College was not one of those schools until very recently.   "It was one of my last fall games, I just reached out to them, I had never talked to them before," Sherman said. "He said, 'Yeah, we'll come see you play.'"   The coaches liked what they saw, and Sherman
