Saturday, February 4th, Nashoba’s top runners, jumpers, hurdlers and throwers all expected a good competition. Three people from each event were entered to compete against the other Division B schools, Westborough, Fitchburg, Marlborough, and Groton-Dunstable. Hosted by Fitchburg High School, these five schools came to bring their all and leave with the coveted MidWach League Champion plaque.
