Suitland High School Varsity Football Team Advances to 4A State Championship
Prince George’s County Council Member Karen R. Toles (D) – District 7, will join Suitland High School Principal Nate Newman and the entire student body for a pep rally in support of the varsity football team as they prepare for the Maryland 4A State Championship game.  The pep rally will take place on Thursday, December 5, 2013, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., at Suitland High School, 5200 Silver Hill Road in District Heights, Maryland.  
The undefeated Suitland High School varsity football team advanced to the Maryland 4A State Championship after defeating Anne Arundel’s Meade High School 45-26.  
“Students in District 7 are doing remarkable things both academically and athletically, and their accomplishments deserve to be celebrated,” said Council Member Toles. “We want the members of the Suitland High School football team to know that we are proud of their accomplishments this season and wish them all the best as they look to bring the state championship home to Prince George’s County.”
“I am very proud of the community and parental support that Suitland has received,” said Suitland High School Principal Nate Newman. “It is through these partnerships that we will continue to have academic and extra-curricular success. I am personally inviting not just the Suitland Community but our entire Prince George's County family to come out in big numbers this Friday night to support our Rams!”

Suitland High School is scheduled to play Montgomery County’s Northwest High School at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 6, 2013 at M&T Bank Stadium, 1101 Russell Street in Baltimore, Maryland.
