Walker's Teams Prepare for the Fall Season
As the fall season looms just days away, two programs at Walker's have taken advantage of the last weeks of summer to spend time together. Twelve members of the soccer program, along with Coach Todd D'Alessandro, took part in a five-day program at Camp Cedar in Casco, Maine.

Katahdin.
