22nd Annual Wheeler Cup Saturday

NATICK – The 22st Annual George Wheeler Memorial Soccer Cup is Saturday, October 21 at Natick High School.

There is an entrance fee, but the money raised from the event supports four awards given to Framingham and Natick High graduating senior soccer players.

George Wheeler was an outstanding and highly respected athlete, teacher, coach, mentor, friend, parent, and grandparent who taught Physical Education and Health in Framingham for 31 years. He coached both boys and girls varsity soccer teams that won several Bay State League Conference Titles and one State title.

George Wheeler passed away in 1994 following a tough fight battling lymphoma and later leukemia. Coach Wheeler always encouraged his players to work to their potential both on and off the field. The recipients of the George Wheeler Memorial Cup Awards exemplify this trait.

At 4 p.m. the boys soccer teams from Framingham High and Natick High will battle.

The girls are scheduled to take the field at 6 p.m.
