This afternoon, four Algonquin teams are playing in MIAA state tourneys. Two of them are advancing after winning Round of 32 games since I posted on Monday. Two other Titans teams’ journeys ended.
ARHS Baseball were the underdogs headed into Monday’s game against 6th seed St. Johns. As the Telegram wrote:
The 27th-seeded Titans, after falling behind by four runs, rallied to tie the score in the fifth and then scored two in the sixth as they defeated the No. 6 Pioneers, 7-5, on Monday afternoon to keep their improbable season alive.
It was the sixth straight win and 10th in the past 12 games for Algonquin, which improved to 13-10. . .
“It’s there; we’re good,” coach Brian Doherty said of his players’ resilience. “We didn’t play that well, but … they played with a lot of heart. A lot of heart. To battle back like that at this place, against that team, that’s impressive.”
(Click here for the full story.) This afternoon at 4:00 pm, they’ll play 11th seed Central Catholic in the Round of 16. That’s at Greater Lawrence Tech.
On Sunday, the team tweeted a congrats to players who graduated, including four who will plan to play Baseball in college next year. (See image right.)
In Division 1 Boys Tennis, the 18th seed Titans played 15th seed Franklin yesterday. They prevailed 4-1. Today, they head to 2nd seed Lexington for the Round of 16. That’s also at 4:00 pm.
The Girls teams are out for both Tennis and Lacrosse. The 32nd seed Tennis team lost to top seed Lincoln Sudbury, 5-0. In Lacrosse, the 21st seed team fell to 12th seed Acton-Boxborough, 16-11.
As I previously posted. . .
19th seed Boys Lacrosse heads to 14th seed Lexington today for their Round of 32. That’s at 6:00 pm.
There is one team you can watch at Algonquin today, though you’ll need to buy tickets here. Boys Rugby is in the Division 2 Semi Finals at 5:30 pm. They host 3rd seed Hanover.
The last time Hanover came to Algonquin, the Titans demolished them 33-5.
