Half of the standing-room-only crowd at Algonquin Regional High was thinking about dinner plans, while the other half was wondering how they would get on the court to celebrate with the winners. The Westboro High girls’ volleyball team wasn’t quite ready to leave.Down in sets, 2-1, the Rangers were on the verge of being blown out by Notre Dame of Hingham before a furious rally forced a fifth and deciding set in the Division 2 girls’ volleyball state championship game. Unfortunately for Westboro, it fell short in the deciding set and the Cougars walked away as state titlists, winning, 3-2, by scores of 25-20, 18-25, 25-18, 21-25 and 15-12. “That comeback was built on playing a (regular-season) schedule that was really tough,” said Westboro coach Roger Anderson, whose roster includes a dozen seniors. “We don’t relent against anyone, and that was never more clear than in game four.”
