Gary Jankowsky has spent the past three years as varsity boys basketball coach at Montabella. That term ended in March. Jankowsky submitted his resignation after the 2014-2015 season ended. The season ended with the Mustangs going 5-15 overall and 1-8 in the Mid-State Activities Conference.

By now everyone has seen the reports about the “Deflategate” report and the subsequent punishment doled out by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell against the New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady. I have a problem with the report — and the punishment. And the two go hand-in-hand.
Carson City-Crystal’s baseball team had a game to remember in the finals of their own baseball tournament Saturday. The Eagles beat Delton Kellogg 1-0 in the championship game to take the trophy, but more than the trophy was the way the game was played.
