  • Wolf Pack Pride is going strong! The WMS girls soccer team DESTROYED crosstown rival Swanson Middle School yesterday, with a final score of 5 to zero. With the shutout win, the Lady Wolves remain UNDEFEATED on the season– and they still haven’t surrendered a single goal. What an AMAZING run for goalkeeper Allie H.!! The soccer team now sets its sights on Gunston Middle School, for an away game TOMORROW at 3:15. Keep it up, wolves!! [clap]
