Join Sam Kurtz each week for his "Then and Now" column.
This week’s “Then and Now” column takes us back to the early days of Westborough. Even though the picture is of Westborough High School, it is the land on which the school is located that tells an interesting story. According to both the short history provided by the high school’s Website and the book, The History of Westborough: Part 1, Thomas Rice, one of the town’s first settlers, built his home at this location in 1675.

Despite having a light roster, the Westborough boys' basketball team gives its best shot.
Westborough High School basketball coach Rahul Shah knew his Rangers were in for a stiff challenge Thursday night against St Bernard’s Central Catholic. The Saints came to Westborough ranked 23rd in the state with a 5-0 record and had already beaten the Rangers 62-39 in Fitchburg just a couple of weeks ago. Then in the afternoon before the game, coach Shah learned that the challenge would be even tougher. Six of the Rangers’ best players would not be able to suit up, as they were home sick with the flu. Given the circumstances, the undermanned Rangers gave a spirited effort. But the Saints seized control of the game early on the way to a 67-47 win. This one got away from the Rangers early and often. St Bernard’s jumped out to a 12-2 lead …
