Simsbury Jamboree is Wednesday
|KEVIN D. ROBERTS/Farmington Valley Sports|
This year's version of the multi-team scrimmage will take place on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at Simsbury High School. The participants are host Simsbury, Gilbert/Northwestern, Avon, Tolland, and Westfield (Mass.). Read more about this year's Jamboree here.
Last year, Gilbert/Northwestern and Simsbury were the local teams that took part in the Jamboree. Avon missed the first two practices that week because of Tropical Storm Irene and elected not to attend the scrimmages.

The Yellowjackets have won the last two meetings between the two teams.
