Weston High School
Sox vs. Yankees, Bruins vs. Canadians, Patriots vs. Jets, Celtics vs. Lakers, Weston vs. Wayland. These are called deep rooted rivalries. For the past 80 years the Weston Wildcats and Wayland Warriors have been battling on the sports fields. Two suburban towns located just five miles apart share a fanatical pride in the sports teams that represent their town. On Saturday, September 27th these two communities will again come together in the first annual W-Day Challenge.
Over the summer months arrangements were made to set a day aside where each school's fall sports teams would compete. Each of the day's winning teams will receive points and the school at the end of the evening with the most points will be awarded the W-Day Challenge Bucket. This bucket will stay with the winning school until the next W-Day Challenge.
There is much more to this day than just a handful of games. The hope is that not only will W-Day enhance the rivalry between the two schools athletically, but will bring the two communities closer together. There will be a fall captains cookout on Friday evening prior to the start of the boys soccer game at 7:30pm. During halftime these same captains will be introduced by sport walking together to mid-field. Additionally, in an effort to give back there will be large bins throughout the Weston campus where teams, spectators, etc., can drop off used sporting goods. All collected items will be divided and sent to the charity of choice for each school. Both schools hope this becomes a yearly tradition.
This year’s W-Day Challenge will be located on the Weston High School Campus on Saturday, September 27th beginning at 1pm (please see below for a full schedule). Come enjoy a fun filled day that will include great high school athletic compaction, food, music and much more.
