  • We begin today with Wolf Pack Pride!!  The WMS Wresting Team wrapped up a great season last week — and came up BIG in the County Tournament.  NINE wolves reached the finals — and THREE were crowned County Champions:  6th graders Braeden M. Cambyses K., and 8th grader Wil T.  Great job, champions, and congratulations to everyone who competed this year.  Way to go, wrestling wolves!! [clap]  And one last thing — wrestlers, be sure to return your singlet to Mr. Mencarini as soon as possible — and PLEASE wash it first.

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with the WMS Dive team, who made a “splash” in their first match of the year last Thursday– beating Jefferson Middle School by 20 points! For the boys — Rayce W. took 1st place and Porter P. took 2nd; while for the girls Arissona W. won 1st place and Elise M. won 2nd. The entire team did great.  Way to go, diving wolves! [clap]
