On an individual level, both Graham Macklin and Sarah Tully qualified as individual "wild cards" for next week's All-State Meet to be held at the Gardner Municipal Golf Course. This meet is the best of the best and making the cut is no mean feat. This will be Graham's second trip to All-States; prior to his qualification in 2014 no male runner from WHS had made it since 2010. In punching her ticket to Gardner Sarah completed four years of finishing among the top five overall at the Division 4 meet. This is something that no other athlete, male or female, has done over the past four years in Division 4.

In addition, I received the following note from the Wayland Boosters:
Wayland Boosters exists to help our student-athletes, but once a year we need to ask our student-athletes for help!
We need 5-6 members of your team to come to the school for one hour.
During this hour each player will receive a list of families who have athletes in our program. We need you to call each family (about 10 per player – less if we can get more volunteers) and remind them about our annual Boosters appeal.
We will have a script that you can follow, making the call easier for you. We can supply a phone if the player is uncomfortable with using their own. Food will be provided! And, we will be SO grateful for the help!
We are meeting on 2 nights this week:
Monday, November 14th from 5:00-6:00pm and Tues
day, November 15th from 5:00-6:00pm.
If you're interested in volunteering (and getting free food) please let me know by noon Monday.
