TOWN NETS SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS AT AUCTION: The Town of Stoughton put four parcels up for auction on March 14, and came away with $60,000. Two of the parcels—a 10 acre lot on Central Street, across from the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, and a 2.5 acre lot on Sumner Street not far from Cedar Hill Golf Course—got bids that were not the minimum that Town Treasurer Donna Erickson, Town Manager Francis T. Crimmins, Jr. , and Town Counsel Jena Munoz were looking for. That figure on each was $100,000. A bid of $50,000 was received for the 10 acre parcel, for example. Two of the parcels were auctioned, however. A 3.6 acre parcel of vacant land on Central Street near the Brockton line, sold for $55,000 this year to Alfred J. Peterson, whose family owns…

Town Meeting members approved up to $100,000 to resurface the track in June. The School Committee voted Tuesday night to accept a bid from Cape & Island Corporation for $97,400. The hope is the project will begin in mid-August.
The School Committee unanimously approved the bid to resurface the track at Stoughton High School at their meeting Tuesday night, after Town Meeting members approved up to $100,000 to resurface the track in June. While the approved bid—$97,400 from Cape & Island Corporation—came in under the $100,000 spending limit, it was not the lowest bid the School Department received. Tracklite Systems submitted a bid of $81,975, but after concerns were raised over their quality of work, the School Department opted for Cape & Island, Joel Harding, Supervisor of Support Services for the Stoughton Public Schools, told School Committee members at Tuesday’s meeting. Harding said he ended up speaking to about 15 different schools regarding Tracklite …

The Stoughton High School swim team hopes to take a challenging season head on.
In her second year at the helm of the Stoughton High swim team head coach Jennifer Kelly is focused on continuing a long climb in the Hockomock.

With a new coach this young team looks to step up in the Hock.
Underneath Stoughton High School, there is a dank maze of whitewashed corridors connecting locker rooms, trainer's offices and supply closets. After a few minutes you get used to that locker room smell—decades of damp, concentrated sweat crusted onto tile floors and spread by the warm air from industrial-sized heaters. This is where Stoughton High wrestling practice begins. "Usually, we start with 10-15 minutes of stairs," first year coach Justin Leonard explained gesturing towards the 20-plus adolescents gasping their way up and down a staircase at full speed, "as a little warm-up," he added without irony. Once school ends at 2:12 p.m. student-athletes have a brief period to check in with teachers and collect their things. Then they …
