Edward Little’s varsity boys soccer team ended their season this year with a loss to Mt.

Sophomore Brittany Jalbert’s go-kart was totaled after a wreck during her last race of the season in late October.

The final go-karting race of the season was just about underway at Richmond Karting Speedway on Oct. 20. Edward Little High School sophomore Brittany Jalbert, a regular racer, was preparing to enter the first lap of what seemed like any other race. The normal feelings of anxiety and excitement rushed through her head as she waited impatiently for the race to start.

As soon as the racers took off, Jalbert’s nervousness was replaced with pure adrenaline. This particular race was her first time without the aid of a restrictor plate, which is designed to limit the speed of the vehicle for beginning drivers. As drivers become more experienced, they are allowed more speed. This was the first race Jalbert could go as fast as the engine would allow.

Edward Little High School’s boys ice hockey team will be starting their season November 18. Senior Colin Benson believes that his coach, social studies teacher Craig Latuscha, will have high expectations of the team just like he has in previous years. “Latuscha is always hyped up and even more now seeing as how we have the new rink,” Benson said. “He’ll want a great opening season from us as a team. So yeah, he will push us.”

Matthew Grenier, sophomore, is very excited to get the “family” back together for this upcoming hockey season. “The closeness of the team this year will assist us with building our strengths as the season goes along, and will help them defeat the teams they should beat” said Grenier.

Junior Zachary Gosselin, returning goalie, thinks that as long as the team works very hard, they can give any team in the league a “run for their money.”
