Wellesley Cape leaguers

It seems as though half of Wellesley has migrated to Cape Cod and the islands for the summer, so why not have a few Wellesley reps in the Cape Cod Baseball League?

Virginia Tech’s Henry Weycker is pitching for the Bourne Braves and Harvard’s Jay Driver is tossing for the Hyannis Harbor Hawks. Cheer them on if you’re down there.

12th annual solstice race kicks off summer at Elm Bank

Seventeen humans and one canine turned out for the annual Summer Solstice 5K+ at Elm Bank Reservation early on Wednesday morning. Organizer Sean Milano reports that participants were rewarded with Peet’s coffee and Foley oat bars. “Despite the warm weather and clear skies, there were no takers on a post-race swim in the Charles River,” Milano said.
