NWR7 varsity baseball wins over Norwich Tech

WINSTED – Coming off a state finals berth in 2016, the Highlanders were a tough team to pin down this year. Losing several key players to graduation, expectations were certainly lowered, and a middling 10-10 record and a five-game losing streak in April made it difficult to determine just how far the team had regressed.

NWR7 varsity softball team inches closer to title

WINSTED — All season long, the Highlanders (17-2) have refused to let anything get in the way of their goals, racking up win after dominant win on their way to the best record in the Berkshires.
