The New England champion 5th grade football team of Jr. Raiders from Wellesley won their first game down in Kissimmee, Fla., on Monday and play again Wednesday now as part of the National Championship tourney. Wellesley’s team topped Michigan’s 32-13 by getting off to a fast start in some serious heat (80 degrees on the field, and sunny) and are set to play Gainesville, Fla.,’s team next. Looks like if they win that, they’re in the finals.
And in case you’re wondering, the kids need to check their teachers’ websites while in Florida to get their homework, and are doing homework/reading while away.
What a great day for Wellesley Youth Football!! So proud. pic.twitter.com/8eOrj6HKP1
