Lowell Track, Wins. Again.

In other news, in an effort to improve parity, MVC officials announced that all teams in the MVC will be allowed to wear Rollerblades and Healey’s when they run against Lowell. It’s a decision not just for raising the self esteem of opposing athletes, but for reducing the amount of ore and precious metals that are mined every year to keep up with this Red Raider trophy run.

Does anyone want to play the Red Raiders right now?

Rumor has it that after this weekend, a group of parents in Andover have sought legal counsel with regard to the removal all score boards from MVC athletic competitions.
Making matters worse is that the scope of LHS renovation project just changed dramatically with the requirement for more square footage in the trophy room.

Move over Yankees and Habs…there’s a new sheriff in town. It’s Red Raider Cross Country. And for those in the “x-country isn’t a sport” crowd, you may be right. But serving an annual shit sandwich to the rest of the MVC is a sport, and they obviously excel at it.

Congrats fellas. I hope you’re all getting the Lance Harbor treatment around town.

Not the Chelmsford Football I used to know…

CHELMSFORD, Mass. (AP) — Authorities are investigating an alleged hazing incident by a Massachusetts high school football team at a New Hampshire summer camp.

Officials say the alleged incident took place at the end of August when members of the Chelmsford High School football team attended Camp Robindel in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.

Not the Chelmsford I used to know. Not the Chelmsford that used to count MVC crowns in twos, and the Chelmsford that out-of-town kids used to accuse of “fertilizing the turf with steroids.” Hazing? Please. You think an elephant walk or broom stick in the bum at Camp Robindel could slow down those lion squads? It just made them tougher.

It’s clearly the dawn of a different era. We’re learning that new bleachers and field turf are things that now lead the scrapbooks & yearbooks of our neighbors, and the only squad in the league with some stones plays on Douglas Road.
