Region – Academics have the honor roll and high school sports has league allstars. The spring season was loaded with many outstanding local performances as the Class of 2007 helped rewrite the sports record books.
Highlighting the list were, of course, state championships for the Hudson's girls softball team and state final appearances by Algonquin's baseball team and Westborough's boys tennis team.
