The Week in Sports

On Sunday, ARHS Girls Basketball beat Tantasqua 53-36 in the 1st round of Westborough’s Invitational Tournament. They took on the hosts yesterday in the 2nd round and won, 46-39. (You can read the Telegram’s coverage here and check out their photos here.)

Tonight, the Girls will face Medway for the tournament Championship.

It’s the last of regular season varsity games.

Brackets should be coming out soon for Basketball and Ice Hockey MIAA tournaments. Other teams have begun competing in high state championships.

Four Gonk Wrestlers took part the Division 1 State Championships. While the team only came in 12th place out of 47, two members wrestled their way into the All State Championship Tournaments this weekend. Timothy Goddard won his weight class and Rafael Knapp came in 2nd for his. (You can read about that here.) For links to event details and updates click here.

The Titans also sent athletes to the Indoor Track Division 2 State Championships last Saturday. Both the Boys and Girls teams won the High Jump thanks to Brogan Madden and Priscilla De Carvalho. (You can read about that here.)  They’ll be heading to the All States Meet of Champions this Saturday, along with April Davis who came in 7th in the Long Jump.

On Monday, ARHS Gymnast Mia Gorman came in 9th in the State Individual Championships for All Around. (The school will host sectionals this weekend, but won’t be competing in them.)

This weekend, nine Titans will be swimming in D1 State Championships. Monica Doherty and Leona Sungkharom will compete for the Girls on Saturday. Seven members of the Boys will swim in relays on Sunday. 

Cheer is competing twice at Shepherd Hill this week. Tonight’s is the Mid Wach League Championships. Saturday’s competition is an invitational tournament.

Gonk Boys Hockey lost their CMADA Semi-Finals 3-5 to Marlborough over the weekend. Girls Ice Hockey played in a postponed Christmas Tournament earlier today. They lost 3-4 to King Philip Regional.

Beyond ironic that the least vulnerable, the elementary school students, are under a mask
mandate until mid March while all municipal buildings, churches, offices and higher grades are operating on a “as you see fit” basis. The “system” has really failed these young people thru no fault of their own.

Jeff,

The elementary school students should never have been masked, should never ever be masked in the future. There has never been any science behind it . They say they are going to take the 2 weeks to emotionally support them before they take the masks off. You know the same kids who 98% will not wear a mask for a 10 day stretch and go back to school and have to wear a mask. Try explaining that to one of these kids. The Superintendent and School Committee are too caught up in their own bubble. Hopefully they snap out of it soon. I really feel bad for them.

My guess: Elementary students have lower vaccination rates, so other preventatives are needed.

Curious what do the vaccines have anything to do with this? We were told it was to stop transmission but the vaccine has nothing to do with that. Has there been evidence presented yet that vaccines do anything for kids under 10 years old? Is there any evidence that kids were ever at risk?

Congratulations to all the athletes at Algonquin for persevering through a difficult season dealing with Covid restrictions.

Do you know there are any restriction currently on parents or other spectators attending inside events at the high school?

Beth, With all these covid mandates lifted, why are town hall BOS and other meetings closed to public attendance, still Zooming? Any indications of when meetings will be back open for business with the public able to attend? Even with masks on, if needed? Could you maybe do an article updating on this? Thank you.
