Greetings Sports Fans!
We are moving into the second half of league play for most of our Winter Sports Teams and it has been great to watch the coaches provide a positive experience for their respective programs and watch the student-athletes continue to compete and represent Wilson High School with great pride and respect. The Winter Season is the longest of the three seasons and I appreciate the coaches taking time to find ways to balance the demands of practice, competing, school, and life. Great things continue to happen here in our community and I can’t thank our coaches, student-athletes, teachers, and parents for all of their dedication to our school! We March On!
Spring coaches are offering Winter Conditioning for those athletes that are not playing a Winter Sport. Make sure to reach out to the Spring Coaches for opportunities to get a jump start on the upcoming Spring Season.
Wilson High School is excited about offering Women’s Rugby as a new Spring Sport. They have been out on the field and the hallways getting tuned up for their upcoming season. If you are interested or have more questions, please stop by the Athletic Office or see Mr. Guthrie for more information.
A huge thanks to the Wilson Student Body, Teachers, Coaches, and Wilson Community for coming out to Silent Night on Saturday Night. We had a great turnout and what a game for the Women’s Basketball Program and what a shot by Shawn Sussman at half-time!
The PIL/MLK Showcase is being held at the new Viking Pavilion at PSU on Monday. Going to be a great day of High School Basketball. You can visit www.pilathletics.com or www.osaa.org for the schedules.
It is never too early to sign up for Spring Sports. Please visit www.familyid.com to sign up for a Spring Sport. The Spring Season starts February 25th and will be here before you know it.
A huge thanks goes out to Elena Miller and all the work she is doing to capture some really great pics of our student-athletes. You can see her work at the following site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/63953015@N06/albums
A message from the Booster Club:
Volunteer for concessions today! The Wilson Booster Club manages concession sales at games. All profits are returned to Wilson clubs and sports. In order to offer concessions, volunteers are needed to prepare and sell hot dogs, popcorn, etc. Sign up to help today at http://signup.com/go/VJ19f3. No experience necessary! If you are new to concession volunteering you'll be trained when you arrive. This is a fun way to give back to the Wilson community.
Our Unified Basketball Program hosted Cleveland High School to tip off the season and what a game it was. The Trojans came out on top after a battle back and forth between the two squads. We will host Parkrose on February 5th. Tip-Off is at 3:30pm.
We are hosting the Grant, Jefferson, and Roosevelt Wrestling Programs on Thursday. Come out and support the Wrestling Program. Doors open at 4pm.
The Men’s Basketball Program traveled to Lincoln on Saturday and continue to battle it out in league play. They fell short in their efforts but continue to battle week in and week out. We host Jefferson on Wednesday and Grant on Friday. The first two of a five game home stand. Come out and support the Program and pack the house!
Our Swimmers picked up another win on Friday night at Dishman. The Swim Program chose Maggie Strecker for Swimmer of the Meet. The Program would also like to recognize the Wilson Staff for recognizing the Swimmers in their classrooms. The next meet is this Friday at Dishman and if you have not been to a swim meet, I highly recommend it. They are a blast!
Women’s Basketball continues improve as they enter the final stretch of the first round of conference play with an impressive win over Lincoln. They will travel to Jefferson and Grant this week in the first of two out of five on the road.
