Go Whalers – Local Spotlight – Nantucket Booster Club
Filed under Island Times
The Nantucket Booster Club has been around since the early 1960s and has been supporting the Whaler Athletic Department and student athletes ever since. The Booster Club can be found organizing fundraising events, selling tickets into sporting events, and supporting the home team.
The Nantucket Booster Club is the reason we all get to enjoy Whaler Athletics all year long. They put on fundraisers of every scale. They sell tickets and Whaler swag at sporting events. As well as they can be found at the Nantucket Homecoming parade through town and so much more.
The Whaler Athletic Department has something for every spectator to enjoy. There is always something going on from football on Friday nights, cheering on the Whalers’ undefeated golf team (way to go Kai Ottani), to watching the kids sail around the harbor in the spring (wave hi to LRE’s own Joe Lloyd). The Island Cup is this weekend versus Martha’s Vineyard. This year, our Whalers, are traveling to the other island for the game. If you aren’t making the trip the Vineyard to cheer on the boys in person, you can listen to the game on 97.7 ACK FM. Click here for a full calendar of events so you don’t miss out cheering for the home team!
