Greetings Laker Nation,

Come see ARHS’s rendition of “The Great Gatsby.”  The ARHS Players, under the direction of Ms. Kristen Lippincott, are sure to entertain.  Remaining shows are Friday, November 3rd and Saturday, November 4th.  Both performances begin at 7:00 pm.  Admission is $8.00 for students and seniors and $10.00 for adults.  Check out this great picture and promo!

Mitch Kuliga, retired ARHS teacher and basketball coach, will be inducted into the Massachusetts Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame Banquet this November.  Coach Kuliga spent 25 years as the ARHS head boys basketball coach accumulating 369 wins and 168 losses from 1975 thru 2000.  During this time, the Lakers made the MIAA tournament for 22 consecutive years, while enjoying 2 Mayflower Championships, 6 South Coast Conference titles and a record 54 consecutive regular season wins.  Congratulations to Mitch! We wish Mitch the best as he receives this well-deserved honor!

Way to go Field Hockey!  The Lady Lakers put up an excellent fight against Dedham.  Although taking a loss in the first round of tournament play, Coach Cuthbertson and the team demonstrated great skill and exemplary sportsmanship.

A shout out to Laker Volleyball!  The Lady Lakers faced Sandwich during tournament play this past Thursday.  The Ladies won 3-1 and will be advancing to the next round of tournament play.  Check out our site for game details.

Best wishes to Lady Laker Soccer as the team faces a competitor this coming Monday, 11/6, at 6:00 pm during a first round home tournament game.  Come join us for what promises to be a thrilling match.
