Raider Friday Trivia Answer and Wellesley South Recognized

So yesterday I posed the question what division did both Wellesley based colleges (Wellesley and Babson) play in? The answer is… Division 3 with both schools actually competing in the same conference (NEWMAC)! Again there was no prize this week but thank you to all of you who played along at home! In other news the tale of Wellesley South’s run this summer to the Williamsport regional tournament added one last chapter this week as Unpage Publications ranked them 42nd in their annual top 50 Williamsport US teams from this past summer! Congratulations again to the players and coaches on quite the memorable run!

Football Preview

In our last installment of fall sport previews we take a look at the Raider football team who has been on the practice field for a week now getting ready for the new campaign. The team is coming off of a very exciting, successful 2015 finishing 6-5 and earning a playoff berth before losing in the quarterfinals to Braintree. The team will have some big shoes to fill including the loss of 2 year starting quarterback Jake Mohan as they make the jump this year from division 2 to divison 1a, but with Jesse Davis back at the helm for his 5th season as head coach you can bet the Raiders will battle all season long, as they look to make a second straight playoff berth!

Raider Friday Trivia

It’s the last Friday in August, which means almost time to go back to school and also time for another edition of Raider Friday Trivia! Unfortunately no prize today, but still get those answers in. Today’s question is…what division of NCAA competition are both Wellesley colleges (Babson and Wellesley) members of? Answer tomorrow.
