FALLS VILLAGE -- The Housatonic Valley Regional High School girls basketball team was defeated 52-34 by Trinity Catholic in a quarterfinal game at HVRHS Tuesday, March 5.

The loss ends a deep run into the state tournament (Class S) for the Mountaineers.

The Lady Crusaders led 13-2 at the end of the first quarter. Guards Emma Gardner and Caitlyn Scott played their HVRHS counterparts, Sierra O’Niel and Christina Winburn, very closely and were able to disrupt the Mountaineer offense.

O’Niel accounted for HVRHS’ first seven points.

Elegance and speed as Italians arrive for Historic Festival at LRP

LIME ROCK — This year’s Historic Festival at Lime Rock Park over Labor Day Weekend was of course a celebration of the speed and beauty of vintage cars, which competed in races from Friday through Monday. 
But a highlight of the festival is always  the Sunday Concours d’Elegance and Gathering of the Marques, which fills the mile-and-a-half track with cars of every conceivable make and interest (as long as they’re not of a recent vintage).

Pickleball has come to Lakeville

SALISBURY — On Saturday morning, Aug. 24, there were eight players at the Lakeville tennis courts at Community Field — two of which had been painted with lines for a pickleball court within the regulation-sized tennis court lines.
Bill Littauer, a Lakeville resident and dedicated player, was taking a group of players through the steps of how to play the game: serving, scoring, where to position oneself, rules and how best to play certain shots.

A fun workout, and no barberries

SHARON — Until recently, the Sharon Mountain Preserve trail in Sharon was fully infested with barberry bushes. 
For the uninitiated, barberries are the bane of hikers, wielding both thorns and an impressive number of ticks. Tim Hunter, land steward for the Sharon Land Trust, said that if the invasive nonnative plants get too close to the trail, “they increase the chances of hikers getting ticks by up to five times.”

A soggy but satisfying kickoff to football season

There we were, on Sunday, Aug. 18, placidly eating Kelly Roger’s killer dip and waiting on the hot dogs in the parking lot at MetLife Stadium, when some ominous clouds started to form to the south.
The occasion was the Green and White Scrimmage, a rather grand name for an open practice by the New York Jets.
These things used to happen at Hofstra University, and more recently Rutgers, but under the new regime of head coach Adam Gase, the scrimmage was at the home field.

Hiking all the way to Mount Katahdin

It’s a tradition at The Lakeville Journal that every summer we feature some of the many hikers who pass through our area as they hike the Appalachian Trail.
At the end of June, Compass Arts and Entertainment Editor Anne Day chatted with and snapped a photo of a father and three sons who had stopped at Sweet William’s Coffee Shop and Bakery in Salisbury for a snack. 
Ben, Luke and Cale Updegrave and their father, Dave, of Franklin, Pa., had started at the trail head in Georgia in February.

Hitting the sweet spot at area golf clubs

We don’t have a lot of public golf courses in the Northwest Corner, but we do have some of the oldest and most interesting layouts in New England.
I have been fortunate enough to play them all and here’s the lowdown. It shouldn’t matter that most of the courses I will mention are nine-holers. A good golf course is, well, a good golf course — no matter how many holes it has. And you can always make two loops.

Italian cars, Formula Fords and Morgans at Festival

You only need to have an appreciation for fun or beauty or history or all of the above.

How to decide if it’s too hot for trout

Acouple weeks ago I trickled over to the ancestral homestead in Phoenicia, N.Y., for a couple of days.
The river there is the mighty Esopus, a river built along the same general lines as the Housatonic, but a little smaller and a lot cooler.
That’s because for the 11 miles between the Shandaken tunnel (known locally as The Portal) and the Ashokan reservoir, the Esopus is a tailwater, and thus resembles not the Housatonic but the Farmington.

Perfect weather and a bear: a Sharon Sprint for the ages

SHARON — The 12th annual Sharon Sprint Triathlon was held on Saturday, Aug. 10,  with the most perfect conditions imaginable. 
Temperatures and humidity were low enough to keep runners and cyclists comfortable. The  Mudge Pond waters were warm enough to keep swimming a pleasure.
