Friday night lights brings a fight for more

The varsity football team faced Lincoln-Sudbury on Friday, Oct. 6 at Wayland High School. Wayland lost the game 27-0. Currently, the Warriors’ season record is 4-2 after their victory over Waltham on Oct. 13. Their next game is Friday, Oct. 20 against Bedford.

As October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Mentors In Violence Protection (MVP) Club collected money during the Wayland vs. Lincoln Sudbury game to help raise education awareness around domestic violence. Both members of the Wayland and Lincoln-Sudbury MVP Club worked together at a tent where they sold cotton candy to raise funds. The club ended up raising over $900 from the fundraiser, which will go to the Lauren Dunne Astley Fund. Astley was a Wayland resident who passed away in 2011 at the hands of domestic violence.

MVP Club is composed of current seniors who took the MVP Wellness course their junior year. The Wayland chapter of MVP Club was formed when students who had taken the course wanted to share what they learned with others in 2015.

The Community Engagement Coordinator Sydney Carter from REACH: Beyond Domestic Violence was also at the game to answer questions about dealing with situations of domestic violence. In the past, REACH has given presentations to Wayland students about maintaining healthy relationships. Carter was at the game to assure students that REACH, in addition to the MVP Club, is a local resource that students can turn to should they need help in their relationships.

The game marked the MVP Club’s return to WHS after a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19. As the school year goes on, the club plans on holding events that engage with the student body, such as panel discussions. They also plan on giving presentations to juniors who will take the MVP course as their Wellness class.
