For the 4th year running, ARHS Gymnastics won the Mid-Wach league title. The Telegram covered Sunday’s league meet at Algonquin:

The Tomahawks, who went 10-0 in dual meets this winter, amassed a 144.35 first-place total in this annual league meet, a battle for the top post among six schools. Marlboro, with its highest team total of the season, finished second at 137.2. . .

Leading the Tomahawks Saturday morning was talented sophomore Lizzy Debroczy and her first-place all-around performance, with a score of 38.15, repeating as the overall champion.

They’ll be hosting that meet and the February 29th state championship. (You can also get a better look at the tweeted team photo right.)

The ski team had a good time on the slopes last Thursday. ARHS Athletics tweeted:

With Thursday’s W, Girls Ski finished with an undefeated season. Boys finished 8th. 6 girls qualified for states-Rudy Utzschneider, Luciana Postizzi, Mina Utzschneider, Lauren Dratch, Jula Utzschneider, and Elly Beauchesne. M Clark qualified for the boys team.

Gonk Boys Ice Hockey has had a much rockier season. But they had a week worth celebrating with 3 straight, significant wins.

The team won the Matt Bruce Cup over Westborough on Wednesday. According to the Community Advocate’s coverage the event was an annual ALS fundraiser in memory of:

Matt Bruce was an avid hockey player and Algonquin graduate who died in 2014 at the age of 26 from ALS.

On Saturday, the team won another game of personal significance to the school – the Brian Arsenault Memorial game. That event raised funds for the scholarship fund that honors the memory of another former team member that died in 2014. Arsenault was Killed in Action in Afghanistan. The Community Advocate covered the game here. ARHS Athletics tweeted pics along with the message:

ARHS Boys Ice Hockey Arsenault Memorial game (tweeted by ARHSAthletics)Boys Hockey earns the win vs. West Springfield 8-1 in the Brian Arsenault Memorial game. Great job Thawks and everyone involved for making this such a special event. Thank you Terriers for your generous donation to the Brian Arsenault Memorial Scholarship Fund!

On Sunday, the team secured its place in the playoffs with a 5-0 win over Hudson.

ARHS Wrestling is another team that struggled this season. ARHS Athletics tweeted some good news on Saturday:

The boys finished 5th as a team at sectionals today. Congrats to the following who are moving on to States next week:

Rafael Knapp 1st at 132 lbs.
Joey Czechowicz 3rd at 182 lbs.
Michael McEvoy 3rd at 195 lbs.
Timothy Goddard 3rd at 170 lbs.

The school’s aquatic athletes competed at their States on Saturday. The Gonk Girls Swim & Dive team ranked 14th out of 26 overall, but Lizzie Meschisen finished 2nd place for Diving. The Boys apparently didn’t qualify a team score, but you can check out results for individual swimmers here.

Indoor Track teams competed in their sectionals last week. The Girls team ranked 12 out of 24 and Boys 17 out of 25. Austin Mowry had a 2nd place high jump for Boys and Priscilla De Carvalho came in 3rd for Girls. The Girls 4×200 Meter Relay squad also placed 3rd. You can see those results and more here.

On a different note, Wicked Local ran a nice piece on Southborough’s Karmyn Shreeve. After she and teammate Julia Kardos stepped up to fill in for the missing national anthem singer at the league meet, the reporter followed up with her. Turns out that in addition to being an MVP and Daily News All-Star, the runner is working on a career as a singer-songwriter. You can read about her here.

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