Bob Sondheim was a well-known figure in the Sharon community for all his involvement in town.
Fittingly, he was the only athletic director in the Hockomock League with a sailing team. If he had his way, there would have been a crew team, a surfing team, ice fishing team and probably a water polo team at Sharon High. The more time in the pool, the pond or the ocean, the better for him. "My fellow athletic directors call me 'Commodore Sondheim,' "' he said with a laugh a few years back. Bob Sondheim, the longtime swimming coach and athletic director, died Monday at age 63, way too young for a man who had given so much to so many. When Bob took over as the athletic director some 12 years ago, replacing the late Dick Corbirn, he had been working in government for people with disabilities. He was teased about being the new kid and …

A recap of Week 10 football action in the Hockomock League.
Turns out Thanksgiving football in the Hockomock League will just be for pride and bragging rights this year - both of the league's playoff berths were sewn up by the end of week 10. Mansfield (7-3), a perennial playoff threat, clinched the Hockomock League's Kelly-Rex (large schools) Division with a 28-21 win against visiting Franklin this past Saturday evening. Mansfield improved to 4-1 in the division, assuring the Hornets of at least a tie with King Philip, who is 3-1 heading into Thanksgiving. But, Mansfield has the head-to-head tiebreak, beating KP 46-33 on Oct. 20. And, Sharon (8-2), just two years removed from a 1-9-1 season, made history Saturday afternoon, clinching the Hockomock League's Davenport (small schools) Division with a…
