Last week, ARHS Boys Basketball turned around a season with a rocky start. They beat Shrewsbury 51-47 on Friday and now lead the Mid Wach A league.

A lot can change this week with three games scheduled. But all three competitors are bottom of their leagues, so the Boys’ chances of turning the past two wins into a streak are strong.

Algonquin Wrestling has had a very strong season. But with three losses this month, they slipped down to second in the Mid Wach league, below Nashoba. (That rank seems a bit deceiving though. Nashoba’s record is a paltry 6-3 compared to ARHS’s 14-3. So I still say our Boys rule!)

They head back to the mats this week for a match against Quabbin on Wednesday and a tournament on Saturday in Methuen.

Algonquin Boys Hockey fell from the top of the Roy Conference League. They suffered two losses last week to Shrewsbury and Nashoba. That places them third in the league.

They’ll hope to start turning that around when they face bottom ranked Westborough on Wednesday.

Girls Swimming scored two wins last week against Tantasqua and Wachusetts. That brings them up to second place in the Mid Wach rankings.

Here are the ARHS varsity games on tap for the week.
