Anyone who says Meredith's flag football Superbowl isn't serious
business, didn't watch the Super Bowl on Wednesday, Sept. 27! The
bowl, sponsored by Meredith Recreational Assocation, set second
Barefoor against second Heilman in some first-rate flag football. As

to 18, the seniors of second Barefoot prevailed. Congratulations to both
teams for making it to the Meredith Superbowl!!
