Join Young Men's Club!

Are you missing hanging out with friends? Without the cafeteria for lunch or Jawsome - it is a challenge to meet new friends or just talk about sports or cars or movies or music.


The Young Men's Club is an answer! We meet online once a week - no heavy commitments - just a place to hang out and maybe get some ideas on a summer job - to pay for that sweet car you have been dreaming about!


Email Mr. Sowpel at gsowpel@monomoy.edu for more info (he is the remote teacher some of you have for seminar).

WINTER SPORTS ROUNDUP

The winter sports season comes to an end this week with the first ever Cape and Islands League Tournament!


Girls Basketball finished the regular season with an 8-3 record and third in the Cape and Islands League Lighthouse Division. The girls won their first Cape and Islands League Tournament game but unfortunately lost in the semi finals to CCA. Great season girls!


Boys Basketball finished the regular season with a 9-2 record and second in the Cape and Islands League Lighthouse Division. The boys travel to CCA tonight at 5:00 for the Cape and Islands Lighthouse Division Tournament Championship. Tune in to Cape Cod Academy’s Facebook live page to watch the live action tonight! Go Sharks!


Girls Ice Hockey finished the regular season with a record of 2-4-5 and fourth in the Cape and Islands League. The Furies won their first Cape and Islands League Tournament game last night in double overtime, 2-1 over DY/CCA/SJP. The team will travel to Falmouth on Saturday to take on the Clippers at 3:30 in the Cape and Islands League Tournament Semi Finals. The game will be available for viewing on LiveBarn.


Boys Ice Hockey finished the regular season with a 1-6 record. Unfortunately their hopes of Cape and Islands Tournament redemption were spoiled due to Covid protocols. The boys worked hard all season and showed great improvements. They should be very proud of how far they came in a short time.
