NHS Athletics: Rockets Review

This upcoming Tuesday, State Representative Denise Garlick will be coming to Needham High School to recognize the accomplishments of our Fall State Champion Teams; Boys Soccer and Girls Cross-Country!  The ceremony will take place in the A gym at 2:45!

Saturday Night was a special night for Needham Baseball as they celebrated the career of longtime Coach, John Freitas.  The Rockets had an alumni game followed by a reception to honor Coach Freitas and his 40 plus years of service to the NHS Baseball Program!
