It was standing room only at the Fiske Library the evening of Friday, December 11, as adults and some younger folks streamed in to celebrate the coming of the winter solstice with nationally recognized storyteller Diane Edgecomb. Harpist Margot Chamberlain and multi-talented musician Tom Megan complemented Edgecomb’s stories with their music throughout the evening.

King Philip Girls Hockey Hopes to Repeat

The King Philip girl’s hockey team put together a remarkable season last year going undefeated during the regular season, but unfortunately hit a brick wall in the Division 2 State Tournament.  After being awarded the number one seed in the 2015 tournament, the Warriors fell in the first round 4-1 to the 16th seeded Winchester, showing that anything can happen once the tournament starts.

KP Field Hockey Returns to Tourney

Less than a year removed from a 3-12-3 season, the King Philip field hockey squad was looking to forget about that year and move onto this season.

KP Volleyball Rolls On

After five years as a JV coach, Kristen Geuss is getting her chance to coach on the big stage as King Philip’s new volleyball coach. However, things are not going to be easy as over the past two seasons the Warriors have captured the Kelly-Rex division of a very tough Hockomock League. In addition to taking home the league title, KP has posted back-to-back 17-3 seasons where they were eliminated both years in the semi-finals.

Making a Difference, One Meal at a Time

Some people talk the talk, while others walk the walk. Aislynn Rodeghiero would be one of the latter.
In 2003, the Norfolk resident was finishing up her undergraduate degree at Boston College and thought she wanted to be a teacher. Her Jesuit education challenged her to do something to make the world a better place.
