A quick look at Needham High School sports action over the past week.
USA Today's High School Sports site is looking for the Best High School Rivalry in the Commonwealth, and Voting ends on Dec. 3. After that, the contest searches for the best rivalries in four regions across the nation, with voting until Dec. 13.
The contest winners, who will be named after National voting closes on Dec. 19, could score $10,000 split between the rival schools. The USA Today team will show up to cover, live, the 2013 game as well.
