Female athletes from St. Joseph's teams will provide skill instruction in their sports at a national girls and women in sports day at the Harold Alfond Center on Feb. 9. Registration for girls grades K-5 begins at 1 p.m. The session will run from 1:30 to 4 p.m. and is free.


The men's basketball team has a three-game winning streak on the line when it plays Little East Conference rival Keene State at home at 3 p.m. Saturday. The Huskies (13-7, 7-2) are tied for second place with Eastern Connecticut, one game behind Rhode Island College (16-3, 8-1). Keene State is fourth (11-8, 6-3). The women's basketball team (19-1, 8-1) bounced back from its first loss of the season Saturday to Western Connecticut with a nonleague victory against Colby and plays Keene State at home at 1 p.m. Saturday. ... Freshman sprinter Nicole Kirk (Scarborough) and hurdler/jumper Peyton Dostie (Standish) will lead the women's track team at the State of Maine championships at Bowdoin College on Friday. Kirk set a school record in the 200 meters with a time of 25.77 seconds at the Terrier Classic at Boston University. Jennifer Durham (Doylestown, Pa.) broke a 16-year-old school record in the shot put with a throw of 38 feet, 11 inches at the USM Invitational.
