When dozens of current and former members of the Alden High School rifle team entered the school’s library near the end of last Thursday’s school board meeting, it was clear to those already in attendance that something was afoot.
Members of the 2016-17 team had just been honored by the board for their individual accomplishments, each introduced by longtime coach Paul Borkowski.
What happened next caught Borkowski by surprise: The board of education announced that the school’s rifle range would bear his name.
