Wellesley-Ludlow Update

So yesterday’s snow storm did manage to wreak a bit of havoc on the state final schedule, due to an unplayable field surface at Worcester State. Wellesley and Ludlow will now square off at Manning Field in Lynn tomorrow at 4 pm. That’s right the same Manning Field where Wellesley just won their state semifinal Wednesday.

4 Raiders Sign Letter’s Of Intent

The college selection process can often be both the most rewarding and most stressful part of a high school student’s senior year. For four Raider student athletes that process came to an end today as they signed their national letter’s of intent to play at the Division 1 level. Henry Weycker (Virginia Tech, Baseball), Brooke Baker (California, Girls Lacrosse), Maddy Balter (Northwestern, Girls Lacrosse) and Maggie Donahue (Georgetown, Cross Country) all signed on the dotted line today at a ceremony at Wellesley High School. Wellesley Sports Blitz would like to congratulate all 4 on this tremendous accomplishment and wish them all the best in the rest of their senior year and beyond!
