NHS Athletics: Rockets Review

NOTE: The highly anticipated matchup between our #1 Girls Lax team at #2 Westwood HS has been postponed from Monday to Wednesday night at 7:00PM on the Westwood HS Stadium Turf Field.

Congrats to Jack Strollo, Derek Howes, Alex Turner & Will Ashenfelter who won the 4x400 Relay at the Andover Invitational on Saturday with a time of 3:25.25! Their time was good enough to break a 44 Year Old NHS School Record!

Thursday Night was the NHS Booster's Celebrity Basketball Game with the New England Patriots.  It was a fun night with the Super Bowl Champs! Running Back LaGarrette Blount stuck around afterwords and took some pics.  Here he is with Steph Magni, Cara Cole and Nina Schofield!
