Greetings Sports Fans!
The Fall Sports Season is officially over and what a Fall Season it was! Our school and community has so much to be proud of about the trajectory of Wilson High School. Our teachers, counselors, support staff, and administration have done an outstanding job of supporting Wilson Athletics this year. Our coaches continually work on creating inclusive, fun, and competitive programs that are so much more about the outcome of a contest; winning is a goal but not out purpose. In addition, our student-athletes are doing amazing things in the hallways, the classrooms, and for our community. Great time to be Wilson Trojan! We March On!

Women’s Soccer: The Varsity Women’s Soccer run came to end at West Salem in the 2nd Round of the OSAA State Playoffs. The team had a great game plan but could not quite find the back of the net. The program had a great year with a ton of returning players that made an impact this year. Huge thanks goes out to Coach Richards and his staff this year for creating a fun and competitive program this year!
