WMS Athletics wrapping up successful first year of play

AS WMS celebrates its athletes at a party tomorrow afternoon, it also celebrates a very successful first year. Over half of the eligible (Upper Elementary and Middle School) students played one or more sports—Zoe S. actually managed to play four sports and compete on the orienteering team! The orienteering team, though not new, had another successful year. Here are all the athletes and the sports they played.

We thank our dedicated volunteers
