It feels strange to celebrate Thanksgiving without the annual Falmouth game. This year has been full of tough changes for the team, including the loss of our usual fundraising activities. Please read the letter on our fundraising page, and consider donating to the team. Thank you for supporting the kids and coaches!
January 19, 2020 – Congratulations to the Barnstable Powerlifting Club for their strong showing at the 7th Annual St. John’s Classic. The event was held at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury and was attended by a number of clubs from New England with 58 lifters in total. This was the inaugural event for the Barnstable Powerlifting Club and 5 of the 10 member team totaled enough weight to qualify for this year’s National Tournament in Texas.
The team won 9 medals on the day.
3 Gold Medals – Ayden Edwards (JV – 83 kilo), Colin Fay (JV – 93 kilo), and Brenden Dowling (Varsity – 120 kilo)

2 Bronze Medals – Jacob Nikas (JV – 74 kilo) and Owen Bright (Varsity – 105 kilo)
In addition to the weight class medals, Alex Saladino had the 2nd best squat of the day at 463 lbs, Brenden Dowling had the 3rd best bench of the day at 292 lbs and Ayden Edwards had the 3rd best squat in relation to body weight at 2.35 x body weight.

Go Big Red!!!
The second half of last night’s game against Dennis-Yarmouth was near perfect with huge plays from almost everyone. From J’adaro France’s incredible catching skills and Brian Frieh’s determined rushing to Nick Wilson’s quick wits and the speed of Luke Locascio and Collin Marczely, Barnstable’s offense was on last night. The defense assisted in the effort by nearly shutting D-Y down last night. If you weren’t there, you missed out on the perfect Homecoming game! The final score was Barnstable 34- Dennis-Yarmouth 10
Special congratulations to Declan Moriarty, who was crowned Homecoming King at half-time. Today, the freshmen and JV players hope to continue the effort against the Dolphins.
The media coverage was quite complimentary of our boys in red:
Unfortunately, the Red Raiders dropped their second away game yesterday to the New Bedford Whalers. The Red Raiders were plagued with costly injuries, turn-overs, and tough competition. Next Friday, they travel to Eastham to face the Nauset Warriors in in their first Cape Cod League match-up.
