Post image for This week in sports: New coaches speak up (Updated)

Above: Several players, and a coach, moved on from Girls Lacrosse since this photo was tweeted by @ARHSAthletics last spring.

ARHS Girls Lacrosse lost their first game of the season 7-8. But new coach, Vanessa Larareo, told the Telegram she was impressed with team’s “talent coming together”, given only two returning starters and 14 members new to varsity.

You can see that talent for yourself this week. Two home games are scheduled for 911 field on Friday and Saturday. (Hopefully, the snow will be gone by then!)

The Harbinger also featured interviews with new varsity coaches.

Algonquin recently brought in “seasoned veteran” Matt Nofsinger to coach Boys Lacrosse. He’s charged wtih filling the shoes of Richard Luongo. “Coach Lu” retired in the fall after 11 years of coaching the team, leading them to three district titles.

For Softball, the school promoted former coaching assistant, and Health and fitness teacher Kristen Morcone. She’s challenged with a team that lost 5 of its 9 starters from last year, including their pitcher.

Now, here are the ARHS varsity games on tap for the week. 

Tennis and Baseball were cancelled for this afternoon, but Softball is still listed as playing.

You can look for updates on that (plus JV and freshmen match ups) here. (Follow these links for the Assabet sports schedule and the St. Mark’s sports schedule.)
