[Highlights from last week’s competitions and what’s on tap this week in high school sports.]

Last week, Algonquin Girls Basketball beating Marlborough 51-29, adding a third win to their record. Wicked Local covered that here. Earlier in the week, the Telegram had covered the team’s improved outlook versus recent seasons thanks to a “veteran core”:

After three straight losing seasons, the veteran-laden Algonquin girls’ basketball team has shown early on that the team is looking for a different outcome this winter.

Algonquin (2-1) is led 6-foot senior Danielle Adams, a returning Telegram & Gazette All-Star, but coach Melissa Faustino also has a strong supporting cast that has navigated an early gauntlet against Shepherd Hill, Notre Dame Academy and St. Paul. (read more)
