Sports Update (submitted by coaches- if your team is not below, the coach has not submitted information)

The Golf Team played against Somerville at Tedesco on Thursday. They won 49.5 to 22.5.  Jake Goldman, Ryan Graciale, Max Pegnato, Steven Santanello, Aidan Graciale, Jack Poska, David Quill, and Nate Stern all brought in points towards this win. The next match is Tuesday, Sept 12 vs. Salem High School at Salem Municipal. 

The Boys Soccer Team played their first scrimmage on Monday the 4th. Against Stoneham, they were able to come back from a 0-2 deficit and win 5 to 0 at the end of full time. 

The Volleyball Team did very well this week winning their Home opening match against Malden High taking 3 straight sets and then winning their second match against Winthrop at Winthrop taking 3 straight sets again. In both matches they were down 20-24 in the second set, which meant one mistake would have given the opponent a 2nd set win that could of shifted the momentum to the other side but the team was able to refocus, regroup and get the job done!

Activities Update: no information from class advisors or club advisors has been submitted yet for this week.
