If the weather holds, the fields at Auburn High will be packed this afternoon. Aside from JV baseball and boys varsity tennis that are scheduled to play away at Southbridge, varsity baseball, varsity softball, and girls varsity tennis will face Southbridge teams at home.
Additionally, boys and girls track will compete against the Advanced Math & Science Academy from Marlborough while girls varsity golf will hit the links at Pakachoag and face Wachusett Regional HS.
Girls tennis had a rough outing on Friday as they lost 5 matches to visiting Grafton. The Rockets are still adjusting to the new team and Coach Erik Berg is finding the right alignments for the girls. Auburn’s best performance was by the doubles team of Carolyn Jeffries and Kennadi Ohman who lost 6-4 and 6-3.
Boys varsity baseball looked like they had their second win in the bag after putting up 4 runs in the first three innings of Friday’s game against visiting Grafton. It all changed when the Indians tied it up in the sixth.
It took 5 extra innings for junior Conor Scully to drive in Ryan Mulcahy for the winning run. The Rockets have started their season with two impressive wins against Millbury (7-2) and Grafton (5-4), and this team has some real potential.
The players are flexible with their positions, and they have the depth on the bench to pull this off. Stay tuned.
