REGION – The fall sports season is in full swing, marking the second slate of games in just a matter of months for football and volleyball programs, in particular, which played earlier this year in the MIAA’s abbreviated Fall II season.

When speaking with the Community Advocate, Westborough girls volleyball coach Roger Anderson said his team is glad to be back to a normal fall schedule. 

“The reality of a post-season is a big difference,” he said.

During the Fall II season, teams played schools in their immediate area and did not participate in a playoff tournament.

“The opportunity to determine how good we really are by facing the toughest opponents across the entire state in the State Championship tournament is a motivating factor for us,” Anderson said.

The Rangers were already off to a 4-0 start as of Sept. 17.  Two of those wins came last week when Westborough shut out Bishop Feehan and Wachusett on Sept. 13 and Sept. 14.

“We have great kids who love the sport of volleyball and work hard,” Anderson said of his team this year.

“Our veteran, returning players model the values of our program and lead by example,” he continued.

Off the volleyball court, the Westborough High School football team found redemption in the second week of their season, beating North Middlesex by a score of 13-12. That came after Shepherd Hill dealt the Rangers a difficult 53-6 defeat in their season opener on Sept. 10.
