No state glory for Algonquin this fall.
ARHS’ Girls Cross Country can boast having made it to the state championship competition this Saturday. But the journey ended there when the team placed last out of 19.
Coach Brian Kellett shared his recap of their season:
The Algonquin Girls Cross Country Team advanced to and participated in the the Division 1 State Championship Race as a team for the first time in 4 years by placing 3rd out of 20 teams in the Central Massachusetts Division 1 Championship.
The team’s success in the District championship capped off a season with a 5-2 record that included a 2nd place finish in the Midland A League. Megan Walsh, Kyra Shreeve, and Kendyl Finelli were all named league all stars.
The team was led this season by captains Shreeve, Walsh, Stephanie Fox, and Maddie Partridge. Running for Algonquin in the District and State Championships were Walsh, Shreeve, and Finelli, as well as Alexandria Madamba, Amanda Pageau, Laura Sacco, and Kelly Wendt.
That leaves Football as the last fall varsity sport still going. They lost again Friday night, 56-21 at Watchusett. Now their final game will be next week’s Thanksgiving Day Classic, 10:15 am on their home field.
The Tomahawks will be looking to repeat last year’s win over Westborough. Both teams will fight to end on a high note after lackluster seasons with matching 2-8 records.
