HS sports teams to resume action

WESTFIELD – The high school sports schedule was whipped into a frenzied mess yesterday as teams scrambled to postpone several games due to the hurricane. But with some student-athletes returning to school across the area today, it is once again game-time as the tournament season lurks just around the corner.
The unbeaten, reigning five-time defending champion Westfield Bombers gymnastics team will look to continue its streak of dominance this evening when it travels to Huntington to take on the Gateway Gators. The meet is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
As of press time, local athletic directors were also sorting out details in regards to sites and times for a smattering of soccer games today.
One team that already knows its road it must travel is the Westfield High School field hockey team. The sixth-seeded Bombers travel to Northampton Friday to take on the No. 3 Northampton Blue Devils. Time and location for the game is TBD.
“I feel pretty good,” said Westfield coach Karen Gomez, who also serves as the school’s athletic director. “I know we can beat them. Sometimes the third time is the charm.”
Westfield lost to Northampton twice during the regular season, 1-0 and 3-0.
The soccer field will be announced tomorrow, and girls’ volleyball seedings will be determined Thursday.
The cross-country championships will be held Saturday at Stanley Park. The girls will begin at 3; the boys at 3:40.
