Megan Cook won her 11th game for Bellingham improving the Blackhawks to 15-0 on the season but was heavily contested by Allissa Karjel who went 7+ scoreless innings with 7 strikeouts. Juliet Hulme relieved Karjel after a single by pinch hitter Kayse Baker in the 8th, and the games only run would end up coming off the bat of Julianne Kilduff who sacrificed to bring Baker across.

In Hopkinton, we are one of the few towns that have partisan town elections. That means that on the ballot you will see the name of the party that a candidate belongs to and whether that candidate was nominated by their party’s caucus. Having partisan elections usually means that we have more contested races than surrounding towns with non-partisan elections. The two parties work to recruit and elect candidates for local offices. Historically Hopkinton has a larger turn out for local elections than surrounding towns.

During my families' tenure here we experienced the growth of Hopkinton from a small, sleepy little rural community, to a bustling suburban town. My children have benefited tremendously; the addition of Hopkins school, the New High School, and the expansion of new programs and classes have helped insure that our children's future and education ,literally " all starts here!".
