Weekly Athletic Update, 5/27/19

A successful season is in the books and uniforms and equipment – for the most part – have been collected and already we look ahead to the summer, early fall and another year of Athletic competition here at WA. Certainly we want to thank our coaches and staff and congratulate our athletes for their work and accomplishments over the past 9 months. Seniors are busy with graduation projects and underclassmen are preparing for exams as we anxiously point towards graduation ceremonies on June 7.
