Plymouth Schools, Police, Fire, and DPW are sponsoring a 5k race to support Boston's One Fund and raise money for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Sign up for the "Run for 1," a 5k race and walk through Downtown Plymouth to support Boston's One Fund. The race and walk is being sponsored by the Plymouth Public Schools, Police and Fire, and the Department of Public Works. School Superintendent Gary Maestas, Police Chief Michael Botieri, and Town Manager Melissa Arrighi are asking residents and businesses to support the race by volunteering as support staff or by running. It's a great way for people looking for ways to support victims of the Boston Marathon bombings to help. "In situations like these, you feel powerless. That’s what acts of terror do," Maestas said. "Having shared that sentiment with several other town departments, we came up with this idea for a race/walk to give the …

The G & G/PSHS Male Athlete of the Week is senior Matthew Kotce.
Kotce has been the leader of defense, picking up slack where the Boys’ Lacrosse Team has been shorthanded due to injuries. In his best play of the year, Kotce picked off a pass from one of North’s players in the final 2 minutes securing the game. Had he not done so, the opposing player would more than likely have had a clear, fast break leading to a tied score. Thanks to Kotce, South’s team retained the ball and won the game.

It's still early, but striped bass are being caught here on Cape Cod. If you fish the right areas this weekend, you too will have a good chance at putting a bend in the rod.
Striped bass fishing is starting to pick up here on Cape Cod. Many of the estuaries in the Cape area have fish, most of them likely holdover stripers that have spent the winter here on Cape Cod. This past week I was fortunate to get outdoors, put a bend in the rod and catch a few of these early season striped bass. All in all it was a fun week of fishing, and I think if you head out this weekend and fish the right areas, you too will have a chance of hooking up. Today was a perfect day to catch my first Cape Cod stripers of the 2013 season. The sun was shining and I could definitely feel spring in the air. Nevertheless it is still very early for striped bass fishing, so I had my doubts regarding whether or not I would find any fish. I set …
