Hi Folks, I am back from vacation and ready for the fall sports season to get underway, so start looking for previews of our area teams in the coming days.
Here is what was going on this week that caught my eye.
1. Starting with the Red Sox, the hiring of Dave Dombrowski and the leaving of Ben Cherington has definitely shaken up the baseball operations side of things.
It will be interesting to see who Dombrowski goes after pitching-wise in the off-season.
2. Out on the links Ryan Jacobs and Sylvain Gagnon took home a win at the 40th Annual Arthur Mandros Tournament.
ORLEANSâ€“Ryan Jacobs and Sylvain Gagnon won the 40th Annual Arthur Mandros Golf Tournament. For more, see the Express on 8-17-15.
NEWPORTâ€“The Northeast Kingdom Junior Golf Tour made its second to last stop of the tour at the Newport Country Club.

Local golfer Lauryn Goulet took part in the Drive Chip and Putt Sub Regional Qualifier at the Framingham Country Club in Framingham, MA on Tuesday. For More, see the Express on 8-5-15.
ST. ALBANSâ€“ The Vermont Pride U-14 softball team traveled to St. Albans this past week-end to play in the 16th annual Vermont Rockets Invitational Tournament.

Howdy once again from glorious Newport, VT.
Here is what was going on this past week that had people in the sports world talking.
1. Starting on the local front, Lake Region has a new girls soccer coach, as Emily Poginy is making the leap from JV to varsity.
2. Turning to the world of MLB, the trade deadline was this past Friday, and it would be hard to argue that both the Royals and the Astros were the kings of the deadline deals.
DERBYâ€“The Northern Vermont Soccer School is in full swing at the North Country Junior High School. For more photos from the camp, see the Express on 7-30-15.
GREENFIELD, MAâ€“The Vermont Pride U-14 softball team recently traveled down to Massachusetts to take part in the Coachâ€™s Classic U-14 ASA Girlâ€™s Fast Pitch Tournament where they took second place.

We just about ready to enter the dog days of summer, but there is still plenty of things going on to talk about.
Here are my Top Three picks from the week that was.
1. Everybody knows that the Newport Women's Soccer League is a popular activity in our area, and on Sunday, Team Colombia Forest bested Newport Optical 5-1 to take home the League crown.
2. Tough weekend for the OEC Legion Team, as they were eliminated from the play-offs after entering the season as the top ranked team.
