Post image for This week in sports: Fall season officially kicks off

The real season for Algonquin fall sports starts today. (No more scrimmages.)

Of course, while we call them fall sports, it’s technically still summer. We shouldn’t hit the 90s this week, but it’ll still be mighty hot when Golf, Soccer, and Field Hockey hit the greens and fields. 

In local media, Field Hockey coach Dan Welty told a reporter that despite losing 10 seniors, he’s excited at his team’s prospects. Southborough Wicked Local writes:

With a good mix of youth and veteran leadership, as well as a strong sophomore class this season, Welty thinks that the Tomahawks have a very good chance to repeat as sectional champs.

ARHS football helmets (tweeted by @THawk_Football Following Following @THawk_Football)Gonk football’s prospects also got more coverage, this time by the telegram. The post shows that last year, the team started out strong with a 35 to 14 win against Worcester North. It’s the same team they face for this season’s official open. That’s Friday night under the Thawk’s lights.

On twitter, the team and Coach Taylor Allen shared thanks for everyone who helped them acquire their 30 new helmets.

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