NEWPORTâ€“Despite graduating only one senior last season, it is a year of change for the North Country girls hockey team, and it starts at the top of the program.
The coaching staff has under gone a makeover that has former North Country player and long time Boarder Hockey coach Claude Paul taking the head coaching reigns from four year veteran Tracy Muzerall. Muzerall will continue to be a part of the staff, serving as an assistant to Paul, but realized she needed to focus on other aspects of her life.
NEWPORTâ€“Sports memorabilia enthusiasts gathered at the Municipal Building in Newport on Saturday to buy, sell, trade, and admire a wide variety of sports collectables.
Put on by long time collector Gary Thomas, the event featured collections from Thomas as well as a host of other local collectors.
"We've tried the show here a couple of times, and hoped to get people who have cards to bring them in and try to sell them or just display them," says Thomas, "But I have been in the hobby for at least twenty-five years."
