  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS girls basketball team was UNCONSCIOUS yesterday — scoring a double-digit win on the road against Kenmore Middle School.  The offense was ON FIRE — with 12 different players getting baskets.  Scoring was paced by 8th graders Brooke S., Grace M., Maddie S. and 6th grader Helene L.  7th grader Olivia N. led the team in rebounds, and 8th grader Grace M. had 5 big steals. Way to go, baller wolves!! [clap]. Next up, WMS takes on Jefferson on TUESDAY at home. Let’s make it FOUR in a row!!

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with the WMS Wrestling team.  Our athletes put up a good fight, and put on a great show, but ultimately dropped their first wrestling match of the year — 36 to 51.  Highlights include big victories from Cambyses, Michael, Gian, Aidan, Will and Cale. Way to go, wrestling wolves — you’ll get them next time!! [clap]. The next match is scheduled for next THURSDAY at home against Gunston.
