Wheatland Middle School Fall Sports Success
The Wheatland Middle School has completed yet another great Fall Sports Season. Our student-athletes really worked hard to showcase their unique talents and demonstrate their work ethic. It is always great to see our students competing and being involved in something they are passionate about and their involvement benefits them in many ways. Thanks for all of the support shown for our Bulldogs along the way. We appreciate your involvement!
The Seventh Grade volleyball team had an outstanding year. Their hard work and love of the game allowed for the 7A team to bring home the Conference Title from Newcastle over the weekend. What a great way for these young ladies to cap off a great year. The 7B team finished in third place. These girls will be recognized at the WHS Varsity Volleyball game on Thursday, October 17.
Eighth Grade Volleyball was lead by a strong group of student leaders and their season was filled with many highlights. They were determined to have a successful season and they peaked right at the Conference Tournament. The 8A team finished in third place in a tough bracket and showed their grit by battling back after a tough first-round loss. The 8B team made it to the Championship but lost a hard-fought third set to finish second. The coaches did a great job in preparing these young ladies for a productive season.
The Wheatland Middle School Football team combined their efforts this season in order to make the most of their scheduled contests. The boys worked hard throughout the season and were fun to watch. There is no better way to cap off a season than the way these players did….UNDEFEATED! Their untarnished 5-0 record for the year will be one to remember. They knocked off Torrington in their final game to remain perfect, and that has not happened for many years! These boys will be recognized on Friday night at the conclusion of the first quarter of the WHS Varsity game. Kickoff is at 6 pm.
The Wheatland Middle School has an outstanding Cross Country program. This is a fairly young program in the making and our students are building a strong program under the direction of our coaching staff. This group is comprised of students in grades 6-8 and were able to compete in multiple events this season. Unfortunately, the last event of the season was canceled due to the weather and the season came to an abrupt end. Student race times improved each race and the amount of growth in these students was tremendous!
We are super proud of our student-athletes and we are looking forward to the great things they will accomplish in the years to come!
