NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — All summer, Al Giorgi is the face of basketball in the Steeple City as commissioner of the outdoor basketball league named for his father.   In the winter, Al Giorgi shows his passion for the game in a lower profile way that just might have a higher impact on area basketball courts.   "I'm about teaching the kids how to play the game before teaching them different plays and sets," he said. "Let's get back to the basics.

WEST LEBANON, N.Y. — Three Berkshire County drivers figure to be in the mix on Thursday, Aug. 14, when the Mr. Dirt Track USA tour makes its annual stop at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

The event is part of the Super Dirtcar Series that kicks off each February in Florida and ends up back below the Mason-Dixon Line at the Dirt Track of Charlotte in North Carolina in November.   The Lebanon Valley stop is always one of the highlights of the track's season and certainly one of the richest nights.   "It pays $17,500 for the winner ... and pays all the way back to, I guess, $300 or $500 for the last spot," Lebanon Valley owner/promoter Howard Commander said this week.

ROXBURY, Mass. -- The girls of the West squad came home from the Bay State Games with silver medals around their necks.   But the experience of playing for that team was as good as gold.   For a little more than a month, 12 girls from six different schools throughout Berkshire County sweated together it out in the gym at Pittsfield's Miss Hall's School, forming a cohesive unit that was able to hold its own against all-comers at the Boston sports festival.   Making the team allowed the girls to work on their game on the court and form bonds off the court.   "I think it was a great opportunity," recent Drury High graduate Emily Moulton said.
