Edelman Hit-A-Thon 2017 Fund Raiser



Coaches from the winning teams, Tim Faulkner from baseball and Alexa Daines from softball, receive their awards from ABO president Eric McCrystal.


Thanks to everyone who participated!


On Saturday March 18th, Bradley Stadium was alive with the sounds of over 100 Woodside athletes bat-smacking footballs along the football field for distance, glory, and fun! Fifteen of our 18 sports teams were represented and contributed to the fund raiser, netting nearly $9000; money that will be distributed to the Athletic department, on behalf of our teams and programs. A huge special thanks to Eric McCrystal for doing the lion's share of organizing and to Zeke Mead for helping to run the event.


Softball kicked some serious gluteus max and brought in the most donations at $2700! Great job girls!


The longest hit of the day was a mighty blow delivered by Varsity Baseball Senior Tim Goode measuring 291 incredible feet. (OK, he got lucky on the roll… but a massive effort, none-the-less!)   Demonstrating her all around athletic mad-skillz, sophomore swimmer Kaia Anderson clobbered a football 204’--representing for the women! 


The winners of the longest hits by class are as follows:



Duncan Vaughan

Kassidy James




Max Moreno

Kaia Anderson




Cole Gabrielson

Paige Blackwell




Tim Goode

Gillian Persons





For the Home Run Derby, our winners are:  (Both Sophomores!!)


Max Moreno - Baseball

Kaia Anderson - Swimming


Extra Special THANKS to Athletic Director Chuck Velschow for BBQ-ing up a storm for everyone!


We are looking at ways to make the event even more fun and inclusive for next year, so please feel free to send your suggestions to president@woodsideathletics.org. 


Awards and prizes will be distributed early next week.

You will be notified and can pick them up from Mr Velschow.



Athlete of the Week

Athletes of the Week December 4th, 2017


This week’s Athlete of the Week is the Girl's Varsity Cheer team!

According to senior Jade Jones, “The team set out to get a bid to nationals at one of our competitions, and we did at our first one.” Clearly the team aimed high and successfully placed 4th, earning their spot in Nationals. Their new coach, hard working Jaymie Guillena, has played a massive role in the team's success as she stepped up and coached both teams, demonstrating her love for cheer. Without Coach Jaymie, the cheer team wouldn’t have come this far and they are very happy to have her as their coach. Additionally, one of their best performances thus far includes the Sequoia performance because both teams performed as one and clearly had a blast, as pictured above. Clearly the cheer team has risen to a whole new level and their success is unmatched, congratulations to the Girls Varsity Cheer team and good luck at Nationals!
