Algonquin’s Boys Basketball is starting the season strong. Last week, the Boys won their opening home game v Doherty and followed up with another win at Milford. Covering the opener, the Telegram wrote:

The Algonquin Regional boys’ basketball team wasted little time in validating the opinions of many who feel the team has the potential to contend for championships this winter.

It was far from perfect and far from easy, but the Tomahawks passed their first test, holding on for a 66-60 win. . .

Freshman Alex Karaban led Algonquin with 26 points, while senior captain Nick Redden finished with 17. (read more)

One of Gonk’s stars from the fall is already making her mark again this winter. Tess Reyes broke the 2 mile record at Indoor Track’s first meet of the season. Unfortunately, both the Boys and Girls teams lost the meet to Wachusett Regional.

Wrestling kicked off the season with a Quad Meet on Saturday. The Boys lost to St. John’s but bested both Weymouth and Essex Technical.

This week’s schedule features more official season openers and special competitions, including the Borough’s Cup for Boys Hockey.

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