The junior high football teams relax before the Homecoming Parade earlier this year.

Fall is dwindling, and with it, fall sports are reaching the conclusions of their seasons. As tryouts for winter sports begin, let’s recap what went down across the junior high fall sports seasons.

Starting it off on the soccer field, both the boys and girls junior high teams won their end of season city tournament. The boys went undefeated throughout the course of the season with some jaw dropping statistics. They surrendered only four goals all season and scored a total of 55. The girls finished 13-1, winning the end of season tournament with their first goal scored within the first 30 seconds of the championship game.

Taking the ball indoors, the Women’s Eighth Grade Volleyball Team went 7-10.

“We were an okay team and all our games were close. We just [rarely] found ourselves winning them,” Charley Hamon, ‘23, said. “We would have won the league spirit award.”

For the Women’s Seventh Grade Volleyball Team, it was a 7-9 season in their first year at the school.
Men’s Cross Country put together a solid season. The boys managed to place eleventh at the state tournament and third place at the ECC championship meet.

The Women’s Cross Country team had a nice season with a first place finish at the Harrison meet, along with a second place finish at Princeton. At the city meet, the seventh grade girls finished in third place. At State, the girls finished tenth.

“It was a really good season and everyone has made so much improvement,” Kate Stiens, ‘23, said.

The Eighth Grade Football Team did not perform as well relative to their undefeated season in seventh grade. The team was only able to put together a 2-6 season.

For the Seventh Grade Football Team, they were able to come up with as many wins as they did losses, finishing a 4-4 season for the future varsity stars of WHHS.
