Four races into the season and nobody on the girls side has been able to top Mohawk Trail’s Taylor Loomis.

The senior dashed down the mountain at Berkshire East in a time of 25.31 seconds on Thursday, good for her fourth straight victory at PVIAC Alpine Race No. 4.

Addie Loomis (26.16) joined her sister in the top 10 with a sixth-place finish. Emily Sisum’s run of 26.61 seconds earned her an eighth-place finish while Ellie Pinkham (27.18) was just outside the top 10, placing 11th.

Amelie Rowehl (17th), Sofiya Slocik-Gritzner (23rd), Lydia Sargent (37th), Caroline Makosiej (40th), Myah Grant (44th) and Cali Price (46th) all cracked the top 50 in what was yet another impressive performance for the Warriors. 

On the boys side, Ben Martino and Weston Den Ouden both placed in the top 10 for Mohawk Trail, Martino taking eighth with a run of 35.35 and Den Ouden just a tick slower, placing 10th with a time of 35.61. 

Phineas Tuttman’s time of 39.12 placed him 19th while Gage Patenaude came in 23rd with a run of 42.26. 

Reid McCoy (31st), Travis Russell (40th), Owen Heilman (56th), Liam Green (84th) and Alex Schreiber (90th) all completed the course. 


Babson women’s basketball

Greenfield’s Sam Smith came up big in the clutch for the Babson College women’s basketball team against UMass-Dartmouth on Wednesday.

With the game knotted at 64, Smith converted a layup with 1.2 seconds left on the clock that turned out to be the game-winner, lifting the Beavers to a 66-64 non-conference win. 

Smith, now a sophomore, helped Babson improve to 3-0 on the season. The squad next hosts Bryant & Stratton of Buffalo on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Greenfield hockey rolls

Midway through the second period late Wednesday night, it appeared the Greenfield hockey team was headed for a nail-biter with Southwick.

The teams were tied 1-1 at the end of the first period, the lone Green Wave goal coming from Jacob Bryant off a dish from Aidan Roche. Shane Prusak’s goal early in the second period was answered by a Ram goal midway through the second period, evening the scoring at two apiece.

That’s when the Greenfield offense came to life.

The Wave tallied three goals in the closing half of the second period before lighting the scoreboard up four times in the third frame to come away with a 9-2 lopsided victory at Amelia Park Ice Arena in Westfield.

“We were buzzing around and outshooting them early,” Greenfield coach Adam Bouchard said. “The final score doesn’t show how close the game was for a while. We weren’t playing the style of hockey we want to play. We came out of the gates a little slow but as we picked up our pace, you could see the fore check, cycling and passing that we want to have.”

The goals came quick and fast for the Green Wave once they got rolling. Devin Niles scored on the power play off an assist from Prusak, and two minutes later Niles scored again, with assists credited to Roche and Prusak. 

Two minutes after that, in the closing minutes of the second period, Roche found the back of the net off dishes from Bryant and Niles to make it 5-2 Greenfield. Prusak scored twice to notch a hat trick in the third, while Sammy Knight and Trevor Kuchieski (first career tally) also scored in the final stanza. Joshua Bordeaux picked up 16 saves in the win, as Greenfield outshot Southwick 37-18 on the night.
