Before I get to last week’s results, it looks like eleven Algonquin Athletes have commitments to play for colleges next year. The school tweeted the following Congrats (click to enlarge):
After a one week delay, Algonquin Basketball made it to the Garden on Saturday. Both the Boys and Girls took on Nashoba at the special invitational on the Celtics’ home court. The Girls triumphed, 48-43. The Boys were beaten 38-52. Thanks to Owen Jones Photography for his shots below. (There are many more, and much larger, on his website here. And for Wicked Local’s gallery, click here.)
Currently, the ARHS Girls have a 9-4 record and the Boys 5-9.
In other special competitions, Swimming & Diving and Indoor Track competed in their MidWach League Championships last week.
On Thursday, the Gonk Boys Swimming & Diving team remained undefeated. They came in 1st out of 12 schools. The Girls ranked 9th. You can check out Metrowest Daily News’ photos from the event. (The first pic below is of Branden Yan competing in the individual medley.)
