Nashoba Girls Lax Grows Up

By Ellen Oliver

Nashoba Girls (youth) Lacrosse is in a boom mode with 90 girls signing up for the 2013 season. “We’re growing steadily,” said NGL President Gigi Lengieza. Now in its sixth year, the team offerings have expanded from one for each level to two at the U15 level.

Open to girls from Stow, Bolton, and Lancaster, the youth program mimics the high school team by drawing teams from the same geographic pool as well as playing many of the same Central Mass opponents. “The teams we play in youth lacrosse are a lot of the same ones we play at the high school level,” said Lengieza.

In a report on school council activity at Nashoba Regional High School, Principal Dr. Parry Graham focused on how the school has been working toward two major goals in its school improvement plan. Student Council Rep. Brendan McMullen outlined some of the steps taken regarding the first goal of better understanding and addressing safety concerns and perceptions. These included talking to the Bolton Police about the possibility of putting in a school resource officer, arranging an upcoming safety presentation for juniors and seniors by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, and collecting data from other high schools on their safety set-ups.

The Independent Clause

 I’ve often said that one of the best things about small town government is that a resident can see the direct impact of their voice through their participation and vote at Town Meeting and Elections. I’ve also said things along the lines of “If you don’t vote, you can’t complain.” With less than 200 registered […]
