Greetings Sports Fans!
As we wind down the Fall Season, I can’t say enough about our student-athletes, coaching staff, administration, teachers, and Wilson Community. We truly have an amazing school!
We followed up a tremendous week last week to an amazing week in Wilson Athletics this week. The Volleyball Program celebrated Senior Night and then proceeded to take down the Grant Generals in three sets and then followed up with a big win at Cleveland on Thursday. With those two wins, they secured second place in the PIL with an impressive 13-3 League Season Record. They are traveling to Roseburg on Wednesday for the first round of the OSAA State Playoffs. Game is at 6pm.
The Women’s Soccer Program celebrated their senior class on Tuesday night and had another impressive win over Madison. They have an endowment game on Tuesday against St. Mary’s at Buckman Park. This is going to be a great opportunity for our program to get ready for the playoffs.
Cross Country cleaned up at Fernhill on Wednesday Night as they prepare for Districts on Wednesday. A huge shout out to the Wilson Cross Country Program and their coaching staff for their continued time and energy in their program!
The Men’s Soccer Program celebrated their senior class on Thursday with a great win against a really good Cleveland Program. They travel to Sprague to take on the Olympians in the Play-in Game on Tuesday.
Our Football Program traveled to Jefferson to take on the Democrats on Friday. They continue to battle each and every game which speaks to the character of the student-athletes and coaches. We travel to Lincoln on Friday to wrap up the season.
Finally, I would like to thank the Cheer Program for their continued hard work on elevating school spirit and performing for our community. And a huge thanks to the seniors and their families for their support the past four years!
