SHREWSBURY, Mass. — The boys and girls varsity basketball teams at Shrewsbury High School started off this season as winners - both came away victors from their openers Tuesday night.
The Colonials boys team beheaded the Highlanders in Doherty's home opener at 56-52. Tuesday's victory may fulfill predictions that this season will be better than last year's, when the team had a dismal 2-18 record.
The boys play at Westborough on Friday at 7 p.m.
The girls team certainly didn't disappoint during their home opener against Groton-Dunstable. The Colonials – who had a fantastic 18-4 season last year – crushed the Crusaders, 53-36.
The girls host Westborough on Friday at 7 p.m.
