Raider Recap 9-30-15

Well on this last day on September heavy rains in the first part of the day certainly wreaked havoc with the schedule as the Boys and Girls Cross Country tri-meet with Natick and Brookline was postponed to tomorrow at 4 pm at Elm Bank. However boys golf was able to get their match in at Newton North so let’s see how they did.

Other Ranked Raiders

Following my previous post I looked through the rankings for the other sports and found that Raider field hockey also has a place in the polls this week coming in at 15 in the Globe’s top 20 rankings. For that poll see the following. http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/schools/rankings/field-hockey

Wellesley Football Gaining Steam (And Ranking)

With a 3-0 record following their 7-2 victory Friday night against rival Natick the Wellesley Raider football team finds itself tied atop the Bay State Herget Division with Milton with a 1-0 conference record. This week also saw the Raiders in more unfamiliar territory as the team jumped into the Boston Herald’s top 25 rankings for the first time in a long time. The team will be back on the road this Friday night against Dedham.
