“Each year, players participate in a playoff game in August to wrap up the WayCo season,” Oppenheim wrote. “While the season comes to a conclusion, the games will happen the following summer, and it seems like there is not an end in sight for the local love for WayCo.”

“Fall sports are officially kicking off,” Libenzon wrote.

Editor Talia Macchi informed students on the blackout psych for the WHS football team’s opening game in the latest edition of “What the Warriors are Wearing.”

“As Wayland colors are black and orange, it should be quite easy for most to find an outfit,” Macchi wrote.

Opinion:

Co-Editor-in-Chief Genevieve Morrison shared her opinion on Wayland town meetings and whether they are actually democratic.

“I’m disappointed that we didn’t get a new field, but I’m even more angry that our local democratic processes cannot and will not represent their people,” Morrison wrote.

Broadcast:

Editor Deirdre Brown produced a video about the new social media platform BeReal, and students’ feelings about it.
