Greetings Sports Fans!

We had a great night of hoops on Friday night! It was Senior Night, Youth Appreciation Night, and Staff Appreciation Night and the gym was packed with fans. How a Friday Night Basketball Game should be like! A huge shout out to Leanne Van Horn for getting the night together and promoted. A special thanks to the Senior Parents for all that they did to celebrate our Senior Hoopers. Finally, a big thanks to Nick Caldwell and the Wilson Band for performing for both Varsity contests!

We are winding down the Winter Season this week with one more contest on Tuesday with our Men’s and Women’s Basketball Programs wrapping up their seasons against Cleveland High School. The Unified Basketball Team will have their final Tournament at Wilsonville on March 3rd.

The Unified Basketball Team traveled to Grant High School to take on the Generals and come away victorious. They have one more week to prepare for their end of the year tournament at Wilsonville High School March 3rd.

Coach Schmidt and his staff finished off a fantastic Wrestling Season on Friday taking three Wrestlers to the State Tournament on Friday.  The following Wrestlers capped a great year with a trip to State-

  • Cameron Tindell
  • Abdul Mohamed
  • Harun Catic

A great accomplishment for three great student-athletes and kudos to the Wrestling Program for all of their effort this season! We March On!

The Wilson Swimming Program sent four Swimmers to the State Meet with Greta Cannon making it to day two of the event finishing 12th in the 500 Free. The Swimming Program has a bright future with a ton of returners for the 2019 Season. Great year for their program!

The Men’s and Women’s Basketball program battled it out with Roosevelt and Franklin this past week.  The Men battled with a much improved Roosevelt team but came up just short in their efforts. Against Franklin on Senior Night, the Women just couldn’t get a shot to drop and came up short in their efforts while the Men’s Team was on fire from the start and jumped out quickly and got a decisive victory against the Quakers. It was great to see Coach Aker and his family in their return to Wilson High School.  Both programs end their seasons against the Cleveland Warriors.
