Mya Duhamel, 16, from Pittsfield, competed in the Junior Gold Championships in Indianapolis, Ind, this summer.   The event had more than 3,000 total juniors, competing in four different age brackets. Duhamel bowled in the under-18 girls division with 559 other competitors and finished in 49th place after 16 games in four different bowling centers throughout Indianapolis.   From there, Mya moved on to the first advancers round and finished in 39th, which meant she was on to the final advancers round and needed to place in the Top 16 to compete in match play. But after 10 games she maintained her 39th position and her run was over.   Duhamel now bowls out of Del Lanes in Delmar

LONGMEADOW, Mass. -- The Pittsfield Little League American Division 10-year-olds proved Saturday that there is strength in numbers.   Jackson Boehm, the last of six reserves for Pittsfield to crack the lineup, hit a leadoff single in the top of the sixth to ignite a six-run rally that gave Pittsfield a 9-5 win over Longmeadow in the Section 1 tournament.   No. 3 hitter Aiden Arsenault and cleanup man Cooper Reed delivered back-to-back two-run doubles in the middle of the game-winning rally, but it all started with Boehm, the third player to hit in the No. 8 spot in the lineup.   "It was nice to see Jackson come off the bench, take a nice simple swing, make contact,

BECKET, Mass. — Summer camps took a significant hit during the past year and the Massachusetts delegation has stepped up to support them as they welcome back eager campers.   State Senator Adam Hinds visited the Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA Friday with a giant check for $3,000,000 in hand for summer camps across the state - including $700,000 for camps in the Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin, and Hampden districts.   "This has been a rough year, as we all know.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Coaches always tell players to practice like they play.   B.J. Jefferson is glad things did not work out quite that way.   "The last practice we had, 10 players in a row missed the bunt," Jefferson said after the Pittsfield Little League American Division 10-year-old All-Stars defeated Holden, 10-0, in five innings on Friday.   "Couldn't get a bunt down to safe our life. And all of a sudden ... thank God they're game players and not practice players."   Bunts were critical to the Americans in opening the double-elimination Section 1 tournament with a victory at Deming Park.   In the second inning, Jacob Welch and
