Algonquin girls and boys lacrosse both prevailed in back to back wins at their respective district quarterfinals on Saturday.  They advance to the semifinals this Wednesday.

The top-seed girls lacrosse team dominated 8th-seed Nipmuc 20-4, and will take on 4th-seed Groton-Dunstable in the semifinals. Fifth-seed boys lacrosse bested 4th-seed Littleton 7-2, and on Wednesday will try to get by top-seed St. John’s in the semis.

In other postseason news, Bridget Owen of Algonquin won the pole vault at Saturday’s All-State meet at Westfield State, clearing an impressive 11 feet.

A 20-4 win in girl’s lacrosse is just plain bad sportsmanship. The coach should have used the lopsided game as an opportunity to give playing time to players who don’t play often.

Poor leadership by the coach. Sports is much more about teaching the kids than running up the score.

1. The girl’s game is 7PM today at Foley
2. The Algonquin coach did in fact play the non-starters
3. There were some extenuating circumstances w/ the Nipmuc team
