The week in sports

A last look at fall sports and looking ahead to the start of pre-season winter sports. Plus, kudos to seniors with college athletics commitments.

Last week, Algonquin celebrated ten students’ commitments to compete in college sports next year. And, after a tough season, Gonk Football went out on a high note.

Last Tuesday, ARHS Athletics tweeted photos of its annual signing ceremony. The school included a list of the following student athletes who secured a place on college teams next fall:

  • ARHS College athletics commitments (photo from @ARHSAthletics tweet)Lacrosse:
    • Jake Pryor – Malone University
    • Gigi Rhind – Assumption University
    • Ava Wilde – University of Vermont
    • Audrey Richardson – College of Wooster, Ohio
  • Soccer:
    • Mia Lochead – Boston College
    • Maddie Faucher – Hobart & Williams Smith Colleges
    • Gabriela Miranda – Liberty University
  • Field Hockey Grace Ammon – Ohio Wesleyan University
  • Baseball Jack Gamache – Western New England University
  • Wrestling Rafael Knapp – University at Buffalo
  • Crew Karoline Crippen – Northeastern University

(In answer to a question the last bullet on the list might prompt — No, Algonquin doesn’t have a crew team.)

The student council sold raffle tickets for the honor of stuffing a cream pie in the face of a few school celebrities. You can see the pics right of ARHS Principal Sean Bevan taking one for the team.
