Hawks hope strong win will set course for remainder of season

January 6th, 2017

Hudson/Marlborough — At 0-4-2 entering the holiday break, it was time for a reversal of fortune, a signature contest that would remove the team from early-season life support, and it needed to happen quite rapidly.

Getting back to those glory days of yesteryear has not been easy for the Hudson High boys’ varsity ice hockey team, but if its 9-2 Jan. 2 trouncing of Nashoba Regional at Marlborough’s New England Sports Center is any indication, good things may indeed be on the way for this rejuvenated Hawks squad.

Algonquin swim team poised to continue winning legacy

December 27th, 2016

Northborough – The Algonquin Regional High School co-ed swim team is just one year removed from one of the most renowned consecutive win streaks in area high school sports, and from appearances at the team’s opening meet versus Nashoba Regional High School at Clark University Dec. 13, there is very little slippage from that past accomplishment.

And when the streak ended with the beginning of the 2015-2016 season, it did not conclude with a loss as is the customary manner for when win-streaks are snapped, but rather a competition format change.
