  • A Rye Brook man rests his fingers after 63 years at Corpus Christi’s organ

    He couldn’t have guessed that a tattling older sister would be the reason his life changed forever.

    Anthony Austin was 7 years old when his sister dragged him over to Father Alfonso Volonte of Corpus Christi Church and told him that Austin was so bad and Volonte needed to do something about it.

  • Rye Town Park and beachgoers won’t go hungry this summer

    It was an uphill battle for the Rye Town Park Commission, who learned in November 2016 that Rye Town Park will be without a restaurant and concession stands after Seaside Johnnies owner John Ambrose walked away from their offer of a 1-year lease. But the six commissioners can now see the top of the hill as they, with the help of JGL Food Service Consultants, have unanimously chosen a new vendor.

  • B.B. girls’ hoops season ends with playoff loss to Bronxville

    The Blind Brook girls’ varsity basketball team faced off against the Bronxville Broncos on Saturday, Feb. 18 for their post-season sectional matchup. As of Tuesday, Jan. 10, the Broncos were ranked among the top 25 in the state, so the Trojans knew they would face a competitive team. 

  • Garcia wrestles into state championships looking to make P.C. history as 2nd seed

    Port Chester Rams freshman wrestling phenom Ivan Garcia will try to go where no other Ram wrestler has ever gone before in the state wrestling championships Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25 in Albany, but he will have his hands full in his history-making bid to come out on top. 

  • 3 T&F top talents running & jumping their way into Armory state qualifiers

    From senior Dennis Almeida to sophomore Erika Yupangui, exactly 90 runners and jumpers participated in fall/winter Track & Field events for the Port Chester Rams and Lady Rams. Of that number, featuring almost as wide a variety of talent as there are letters in the alphabet, just three performers from three different years in a 2-3-4 grouping made it into the indoor state championship qualifying rounds Friday, Feb. 24 at the New Balance 168th St. Regiment Armory in New York City.

  • P.C. basketball saga has a poetic zing without the ring-a-ding-ding this year
    With apologies for paraphrasing the poet T.S. Eliot, this is how it ended, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with a clang that will echo in their collective minds at isolated times for as long as they live, the clang of a basketball banging off the rim, ricocheting off the backboard into a missed rebound snared by the opposition after yet another missed layup, that desperate carom passed on into the hands of a rival gunner who hit a trey from somewhere around Yonkers Raceway that against all odds swished through the net to give Yonkers a one-point buzzer-beating win over the Port Chester basketball Rams in a season-ending away game that P.C. had to win to make the playoffs.
  • #11 Trojans pull off upset over #6 Valhalla

    As we approach the beginning of March, the biggest basketball month of the year, many begin to get eager to fill out their brackets and enjoy the madness that surrounds the NCAA tournament. Upsets are always a given and no team is guaranteed to make it to the next round. The same can be said for the high school Class B sectional playoffs. The #11 seed Blind Brook Trojans just busted a lot of brackets with their huge upset win over the #6 seed Valhalla Vikings.

  • Near misses forecast future success for budding P.C. Ram swimmers
    It all came together yesterday (Thursday, Feb. 16) for the Port Chester Rams swim team in a very different kind of after school pool, a scheduled celebratory gathering at Frankie & Louie's Restaurant & Pizzeria on Willett Avenue where they pooled their memories of how far they had come during their third consecutive winless season. 
  • Lady Rams wind down hoop season with 3 losses
    Chicken Joe's yummy fast-food specialists from Greenwich may be one of the Port Chester Lady Rams basketball team sponsors, with residents Joe and Nina Marini supplying P.C. with all kinds of goodies gratis to sell at their home games to raise funds for the team, but P.C. sure ain't chicken when it comes to booking quality opponents. 
  • RTH Titans skate into playoffs

    The Rye Town/Harrison Titans were hoping to head into the playoffs coming off two big road wins but failed to win either of them and went 0-2, finishing the ice hockey season with a record of 11 wins and eight losses. They look to bounce back from their late season slump and make a deep run in the playoffs. 

  • Garcia wins sectional wrestling title

    Up until last week Port Chester had a "Magnificent 7" when it came to Section I Division 1 wrestling champions dating back to 1967 when heavyweight George Smith became the first to qualify for the state championships. He was followed over the years by Bill James (wrestling in the 126-pound weight class in 1979), George Tucker (132 in 1982), Declan Josephson (171 and 189 in 2002 and 2003 respectively), Joe Facciola (189 in 2006) and Josue Cardenas (189 in 2009).

  • B.B. boys’ hoops finish 10-10, hope to reach county center
    After an impressive road victory over Rye Neck, the Blind Brook boys’ varsity basketball team returned home feeling confident and ready for a tough rematch against Bronxville. The Broncos had defeated the Trojans by 13 points earlier in the season, giving them an even greater desire to get revenge.
