“Quality over quantity” has been the motto of the Hopkinton High School girls tennis team this spring. In the program’s first season since 2019, the Hillers have just eight players on the team, including six returners and two newcomers. But that has not stopped HHS from ranking among the top teams in the Tri-Valley League.
This week’s edition of Senior Snippets includes information on transportation options, exercise classes and other programs at the Senior Center, which is slowly reopening to in-person activities.
