23rd Annual Wheeler Cup Saturday at Bowditch Field

NATICK – The 23rd Annual George Wheeler Memorial Soccer Cup is Saturday, October 20 at Bowditch Field in Framingham.

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.

Wheeler will be inducted into the inaugual Flyers Hall of Fame on Friday night, October 19.

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. Admission is $5 and $2.00 for children under 10.

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. at Bowditch Field.

Prior to the varsity games, Framingham United Soccer Club’s 8th grade boys and girls teams will take on Natick.

12:30 p.m. start for boys game and 2:30 p.m. for the girls game.
