Allen excited and ready to step into Algonquin’s head coach position

August 24th, 2017

Northborough – Meet the new coach. Same as the old coach. Almost.

When highly successful and much admired Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS) varsity football head coach Justin McKay resigned his post in May to accept the same position at Worcester’s St. Peter-Marian High, it was stunner to many Tomahawk fans who watched the team earn a berth in the Division 2 District championship game last fall. Few saw this coming leaving many questions to be answered as to who and how to fill the void.

Hudson dance team looking to expand with official status

August 7th, 2017

Hudson – They don’t lift weights, kick oblong objects through goal posts or use sticks as scoring implements. They don’t crash into boards, throw circular objects through hoops or even draw the greatest number of spectators. Theirs is not a conventional sport, but don’t try to tell the Hudson High School (HHS) dance team that their chosen competition is any less challenging or any less worthy of being designated a high school sport.
