Since the re-districting of the Greenbelt, MD school system in 2004, the rivalry between Eleanor Roosevelt and Dr. Henry Wise has only gotten stronger. That tradition continued on Saturday during the Great American Rivalry Series presented by the US Marines. Eleanor Roosevelt’s double overtime 26-20 victory over Dr. Henry Wise was played on an extremely muddy field following a hard rain storm on Saturday morning but the conditions did not deter the intensity of the rivalry.
