Gritty in pink: Lady Rangers to host charity hoops tournament

Westborough - The Rangers girls" varsity basketball team will host the 12th annual Westborough High School Invitational Tournament over February break in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. However, just because the tournament is for a good cause and will take place in a gym decorated in pink streamers and balloons doesn's mean these games won's be meaningful or hard-fought. The double elimination tournament is approved by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association, which means the wins/losses will affect the playoff picture. Teams that haven's already solidified their playoff spots will come in very motivated as it's one of the last opportunities to improve their district standings. Those teams that have already clinched post-season berths will use the tournament as a great opportunity to test drive some of the teams that they'sl face in the playoffs. Unfortunately, due to some key early-season injuries and a couple of lackluster fourth quarters, the Lady Rangers find themselves in the aforementioned group.
