The Girls will be competing in the state finals against Southern District Champs, undefeated Needham. The game time isn’t posted yet, but according to Algonquin Athletics, it’s expected to be Saturday, November 21 at Algonquin. (To check for updates, you can visit their website here.)

As I previously reported, Algonquin’s Cheerleaders will host and compete in the state competition this Sunday, November 22. They’ll be competing in the Division 1 & Coed-Large group, which is set to start at 1:45 pm. They’re the 5th team scheduled to perform.

Updated (11/19/15 10:42 am): The soccer finals have been posted and it looks like you won’t be able to cheer on from Algonquin after all. To support the Girls in their quest for the state title, head to Lynn this Saturday. The match is set for 4:30 pm at Manning Field.
