The volleyball team defeated Tantasqua yesterday improving their record to 12-4. Liv Smith had 7 kills and 5 aces, Sarah Bishop 14 kills and 6 aces, Carly Poirier had 7 kills and 3 aces and Ellie Moore had 6 kills and 2 blocks. Congrats on a great team win. Good luck today vs Algonquin.

The girls' freshman soccer team came away from a well-played game against Nashoba yesterday in a 1-1 tie to bring their season record to 5-1-1. Excellent teamwork was once again a defining characteristic of Wachusett play, highlighted by quick passing and good ball movement.  Aoife Fitzgerald capitalized on a beautiful pass from Madison Senecal to sink the Mountaineers’ goal.  Come see the girls as they continue their season with two more home games this week, one today against North Middlesex and one on Friday against Algonquin. GO GREEN!
