Post-season sports: Girls Lacrosse and Boys Tennis to district semis; Track athletes to New England; several teams knocked out

Last I posted on Algonquin sports, ten teams were slated for division tournaments or higher. With several competitions over the weekend, it’s time for an update.

In district tournaments, several teams were knocked out of the playoffs. But there are four teams still going: Girls Lacrosse, Boys Tennis, Boys Volleyball, and Girls Rugby.

Boys Tennis, triumphed in their Quarter Final with 5-0 win over St. John’s. They are scheduled for semis this afternoon at 3:00 pm. (The school’s website lists that on their home court. But the official brackets still list location TBA – and with today’s rain, I’m not sure what will happen.)

Girls Tennis is out after being trumped by lower seed Wachusett 3-2.

In Lacrosse, 6th seed Girls overcame 3rd seed Agawam 12-11 in Quarter Finals. Now they head to 2nd seed Longmeadow for the semi-finals. That takes place tomorrow, June 6th at 5:00 pm.

The 9th seed Boys Lacrosse team couldn’t overtake Top seed Longmeadow in the Quarter Finals. They lost 15-9.

In Baseball, Algonquin lost the Quarter Finals to lower seed Nashoba 1-0.

Boys Rugby was trounced 66-10 by Milton in their Quarter Finals.

The time is now set for Saturdays’ Girls Rugby district Finals against Belmont. That will take place at Endicott College at 4:30 pm.

As previously posted, Boys Volleyball is still set to play in their Semi-Finals tonight. The top seed, undefeated team will host 4th seed Leominster at 5:00 pm.

Outdoor Track made it past districts, all the way to All States on Saturday. That’s the end of their run as a team. The Girls ranked 41 and Boys 46th.

But at least three of their athletes can move on to New England Regionals this Saturday, June 10th, at Norwell High School.

Those are pole vaulters RaiAnn Bu (4th place for Girls) and John Robbins (6th for Boys), and runner Everett Pirtle (6th for 400 meter dash). And, if one of the top 6 runners for the Girls 1 mile is scratched, 7th place Tess Reys can compete. For details on individual performances at All States, click here.
