QMJHL players to be handed 15-minute penalties for fighting

LONGUEUIL, QUE.—The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has approved new rules that dole out stiffer punishments for fighting.

All players involved in a fight will now receive a 10-minute misconduct penalty and a five-minute major. Previously, players were assessed only the five-minute major penalty.

Anyone deemed to be an instigator will also get a two-minute minor.

Syracuse, N.Y. — As imposing as the hurdles put up by the coronavirus have been for high school athletes the past few months, the career momentum crafted by Gracie Britton and Fran Tortora has been powerful enough to plow right through them.

Britton and Tortora, both attackmen, are two of the best young girls lacrosse players in Section III. They established themselves as Division I college prospects during their freshman high school seasons, Britton at CBA and Tortora at Cicero-North Syracuse.
