The regular season is winding down for North Reading teams, with multiple Hornet squads hoping to position themselves for postseason success in the final week-plus of the regular season.
First on Monday, the boys hockey team hopes to improve on its 7-5-2 mark with a road tilt against Pentucket. Puck drops at 4 p.m.
Tuesday is a busy day with both basketball teams taking on Hamilton-Wenham. The girls team is on the road in a 6:30 p.m. tilt while the boys team hosts Hamilton-Wenham at 7 p.m. The boys team hopes to extend its unbeaten start, entering the game at 17-0.
