Glen Field honored
Last night, Glen Field received the Ted Damko award from the Massachusets Secondary Schools Athletic Director's Association at their annual awards banquet in the Bass River Room at the Sheraton Hyannis Resort. The award is presented annually to an athletic director with three to five years experience "who has exemplified the highest standards of their profession and has made significant contributions to their school and community."
No question that Glen Field fulfilled the highest standards and contributed much. Always a gentleman, he constantly set an example of dignified sportsmanship to coaches, athletes, and their parents.
Last year, at his retirement, he told The High School View, "If you set the bar high and you believe in the kids, then they can achieve outstanding things." He did, and so did they.
Plante is perfect
Mark Plante of West Tisbury broke 100 clay pigeons in a row at the MV Rod and Gun Club, Saturday, while warming up for this Sunday's skeet shoot at South Warren, R.I.
It was the first perfect game (100 targets) ever shot at the club.
Mark said that he was a little nervous before reaching the 75 mark but then relaxed while shooting the fourth box of 25 to reach 100.
Mark's name will be added to the R&G Club's Straight Target plaque and his hat will be peppered by fellow skeet shooters as a token of his accomplishment.
