Greetings Sports Fans!
It was another great week of Wilson Athletics this past week! Our Wrestling Program capped off a great year at the District Meet finishing 4th in the PIL up from 7th from last year. Greta Cannon made the podium at the State Swim Meet finishing 5th in the 500 Free! Our Unified Basketball Team had another big game with Wilsonville and what a game it was. Our squad displayed such great sportsmanship throughout the game and had so much fun getting up and down the hardwood. We honored our lone senior on the Men’s Basketball Team, Mason Lommen on Friday night. It was great to see so many of our student body, the band, and our Cheerleaders there supporting Mason and the Men’s Program. The Women’s Basketball Program continues to improve week in and week out with one more week left in the regular season coming up. They will honor their seniors on Friday when we host Grant. We March On!
MAC Scholarship Winner
Wilson High School is pleased to announce Nolan Sottoway as this years’ Multnomah Athletic Scholarship winner. Nolan will get a two-year membership to the Multnomah Athletic Club and a scholarship to go towards the college of his choice. A great candidate and an even greater student-athlete!
The Snowboarding Team was at the Half-Pipe Competition over the weekend at Mt. Hood Meadows and the Women’s Team finished in 2nd place with Carmen Donnerberg finishing 4th in the rankings. On the Men’s side, the team finished in 6th place with Colen Rencher placing 5th. They have two more competitions and then it is off to State!
The Women’s Basketball Program finished out the week with a convincing victory on the road at Lincoln after a tough road loss to Roosevelt on Tuesday. They have a big week coming up as we host Jefferson and Grant this week. On Friday, it is Senior Night so come out and show your support for the Women’s Program this week as they honor their Seniors!
The Wrestling Program capped off a great season in the PIL with a solid performance at the District Meet. The team finished 4th in the District Meet with Henry Williams, Finn Whittaker, Jack Walker, and Jordan Taff all qualifying for state. The team had 10 total Wrestlers place at the meet as well. They include Shaho Meman, Ethan Mershon, Eric Tervo, William Wood, Francesco Bressanin, and first year Wrestler Tavares Tims! What a great performance! The State Meet is February 22nd and 23rd at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
The Men’s Basketball Program battled it out this past week with Lincoln and Roosevelt. Our guys continue to show resilience and toughness as they battle it out in arguably one of, if not the toughest Men’s Basketball Conference in the State. The group is young and is poised to do some great things in the future. They travel to Jefferson and Grant this week.
The Unified Basketball Team hopes to keep its winning streak alive as they travel to Forest Grove on Wednesday. I can’t thank the coaches enough for their time, dedication, and energy for providing such a positive and wonderful experience for the program. It truly is inspirational to watch the program grow!
Spring Sports Parent Meetings
Mark your calendars for March 6th at 6pm for the Spring Sports Parent Meetings. On this night, individual programs will be meeting with you, the parents, to go over the year, expectations, schedules, and any other pertinent information. This is an important night for each program to ensure proper communication and answer any questions that you might have as well.
PCA Leadership Summit
On Thursday February 21st from 330-5pm, the Wilson Athletic Department will be hosting our partners from the Positive Coaching Alliance for a Leadership Summit. At this event, we will be talking about strategies and ideas that our student-athletes can use and help implement in their respective programs and hopefully instill life lessons along the way as well.
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.
If you are planning on going out for a Spring Sport, now is the time to get signed up early. Signing up early allows our office to ensure a smooth transition from winter to spring for our student-athletes but more importantly, it allows the coaches to start their respective seasons smoothly as well without having to worry about who is cleared and who is not. www.familyID.com
