Greetings Sports Fans!
We are entering the last couple of weeks of the regular season for most of our Winter Sports. Wrestling will wrap up their regular season this week as they prepare for JV and Varsity Districts this week. Men’s and Women’s Basketball are in the final weeks of their regular seasons and the Women’s Program is looking to make a late season push in league play. Swimming wrapped up their regular season with their final meet on Friday at Districts. Unified Basketball has two more regular season games before they head off to the State Tournament in Wilsonville and the Ski and Snowboarding Teams have a couple more meets before they compete at their State Races. We March On!

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.

Team Just Cure It! - Wilson High School student athletes are raising money to help fight cancer!
Wilson High School sophomores Emma Laboe and Lily Conway are heading up team Just Cure It! as part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Student of the Year campaign. This is a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Emma, Lily, and their team are asking for your support in helping them raising money for this incredible cause.
Funds raised will not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.
