Football Scrimmage Saturday
The Spartans varsity football team and Coach DeSousa would like to thank the entire Spartan family for coming out and showing our school pride yesterday.
Scituate High School hosted Pilgrim High School in the season’s first game plays and drills scrimmage.
The whole experience was made even more special because of Coach Lynn Francazio, Coach Cara Campbell and the Scituate Cheerleaders coming out. They made the day for the players and they were so honored to have them there.
A big thank you to the Scituate Boosters for being a part of the first day of the spring schedule. Thank you to Danielle Fians and her volunteers for their energy and enthusiasm.
The players had an amazing experience against this very strong Division 2 level varsity team. They had more than double the players available to play, but despite that the Spartans were still able to get several touchdowns during the game play period of the scrimmage. It was a fantastic chance for many of the underclassmen to gain some game time contact and practice. Thank you Pilgrim for coming up to our campus, they have a strong organization with potent coaching.
It was a perfect day and we all appreciate the fans and parents who came out. We are looking forward to seeing you next Saturday at 11:00 for our first real game against North Providence High School.
Congrats Rachel Oster! First Team All Division!
Congrats KEENE YENA!
