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. "It

ROXBURY, Mass. — Some of the best high school girls basketball players in Western Massachusetts went east with one simple mission: to show the world that Berkshire County hoops is legit.   Message delivered.   The West came up a little short on Sunday evening — literally and figuratively — in a Bay State Games gold medal game where the Bostonians' height proved decisive.   But after going 5-1 over three days and splitting with the Metro team that won the title, 78-65, on Sunday, the Berkshire all-stars have nothing to feel down about.   "I think the biggest thing is these kids came out here just wanting to prove they can play," West coach

And on Sunday, they will look to end the debate.   The West team at the Bay State Games will play in the Gold Medal game Sunday afternoon at Roxbury's Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center after posting a 4-0 record on the first two days of the tournament.   Mount Greylock's Lucy Barrett and Pittsfield's Peyton Steinman have been among the leaders of the squad, made up of six girls from public high schools and six prep school athletes.   "I'm so proud of this group of kids," West coach Matthew Ward said.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Daniel Martinez was a wire-to-wire winner at the PGA Junior Series event at Taconic Golf Club this week.   But it was not easy.   Martinez, of Austin, Texas, gave away most of his five-stroke lead coming into Thursday's final round but rallied to win by a convincing seven stroke margin.   "I had to settle in," Martinez said after securing an exemption to this month's Junior PGA Championship in his home state.   "I made a huge putt on 10, probably a 15-foot curler for par from above the hole, which is not where you want to be. After that, I got into a little bit more of a rhythm. Everything after that felt a little

SUTTON, Mass. -- The Williamstown 10-and-under Cal Ripken baseball all-stars fell to 1-1 in pool play at the state tournament with a 7-6 loss to Hudson on Saturday afternoon.   Williamstown rallied from a 6-4 deficit to tie it in the top of the sixth thanks to a one-out RBI single by Alex Axt and a bases loaded walk drawn by Miles Cece. Hudson pitcher Brady Stewart fielded a line drive back to the mound and got a strikeout to end the threat.   Hudson then won the game in the bottom of the inning.   Axt ended up going 1-for-3 with a pair of RBIs. Jake Cangelosi and Landen Jamula split time on the mound. Cagelosi started and went 4-1/3, striking out two with three
