  • And finally today — Wolf Pack Pride is going strong! Yesterday, the WMS girls soccer team completed a HISTORIC season — defeating Kenmore 4 to nothing and winning the County Championship!
    .
    But that’s not all, this incredibly talented group of athletes accomplished something that has LITERALLY never been done in Arlington before: they went UNDEFEATED and UNSCORED upon all season long. You heard right — they didn’t give up a single goal!!
