In years past, Towson High School Athletics hasn’t impressed a whole lot with any flashy equipment or gear, besides our beloved turf field.  But other than that, Towson isn't the type of basketball team to roll up in matching Nike shoes, or the football team with four different sets...

On Monday December 11th, the baseball world as we know it was drastically altered when the Yankees acquired National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins. Stanton was the home run leader in the 2016-2017 season, and put a below-average Marlins team on his back for most of th...

For Towson's girls' soccer team, the Loch Raven game was just another game for them. Another game that they always win, year after year. But, there predictable outcome didn't seem to occur this year.
