Monday Poll

It’s the last Monday in February and with the start of another week, it’s a good time for another edition of Monday Poll. In last week’s poll I asked you if you liked the new Wellesley High turf football field, and out of the 5 votes, 3 did not like it, while 2 did. This week’s poll takes a bit of a look forward as spring is fast approaching and thus spring sports as well. The question is… which spring sport do you the reader enjoy playing/watching the most? Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse, or other? Submit your votes and the results will be announced next week.
