Somers senior Teagan Lucchese plays attack and midfield for the varsity girls lacrosse team. She also was on the field hockey squad. Lucchese will continue her lacrosse career at Drexel University.

How old were you when you started playing lacrosse and how did you get started?

I officially started in second grade, but I have had a stick in my hand since birth. My dad played the sport in college and coached a boys high school team after graduating, so it was only natural that he introduced lacrosse to me and my siblings.

What are the team’s goals/expectations this season under two new coaches in Alexa Lucchesi and Tori Doyle?

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
