Thank you to Annie Cohen for passing this along about the Wrestling team’s edition of the “Polar Plunge” called the “Monk Dunk” which will take place tomorrow morning at 10 am at Morse’s Pond. On behalf of this blogger here’s hoping for a successful Plunge and also stay warm!
In honor of the end of the year 2016, I asked the question yesterday what Raider team last played a game on either December 31st or January 1st? The answer is… Girls Hockey, who played on December 31st of 2013 and were victorious over Canton 5-0. No one got the correct answer so the Dunkin gift card goes unclaimed yet another week but we will try again next week!
It’s the final Raider Friday Trivia of 2016 and there is a Dunkin Donuts gift card on the table so let’s see if we can end the year off with a bang. Today’s question is… Who was the last Raider team to play a game on either December 31st or January 1st? Get those answers in and the answer and hopefully prize winner will be posted tomorrow!

Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend, and now that Monday has sprung it is time for another edition of Monday Poll. First off the results from last week were that 2 votes were cast, both for girls basketball as the team people thought would have a better regular season this winter season. Today’s question is also winter sports themed, the question is… what winter sport do you prefer watching/playing, basketball, hockey or other? Please comment with your answers and the results will be announced in next week’s Monday poll!
Despite the fact that there is no school this week, as we enter the final week of 2016, there is a good amount of Raider action to look forward to both home and away. Let’s take a look at what this final week of the year has in store for your favorite Raider teams!

Lastly, here’s hoping that 2017 is another successful year in Wellesley sports and I can’t wait to be a part of it!
So yesterday I asked the question of what team the Raider girls basketball team beat last year to win the Rockland Holiday Tournament. The answer is… Rockland, yes the hosts who the Raiders beat 49-39 to win the tournament title a year ago. The Raiders will look to repeat as champs as they travel to that same tournament this coming week. No one guessed the correct answer this week so no prize, but we’ll try again next week.
It is the holiday season, and in the spirit of the holidays I have restocked my Raider Friday Trivia prize arsenal so one lucky reader will receive a Dunkin Donuts gift card! Today’s question is…What team did the girls basketball team beat last year to win the Rockland Holiday Tournament? Answer will be posted tomorrow!
