Highlights:

Our new Team-Directed approach to requesting funds from parents/guardians, has improved  donation amounts over last FY both to specific teams, and to the ABO in general. We anticipate continued strong response and our goal is to significantly increase participation (number of parents giving something) next year.

 

A great example of how the ABO supports and strengthens the Athletics Department overall is our providing $15k to fund the up-front purchase of an electronic/computerized timing system for Track and Field. This allowed the Track coaches to obtain the system in the fall so they could practice using it over the winter and be ready to go this Spring! As Coach Hartford will tell you, the timing system worked great!

Athlete of the Week

Athlete of the week November 5th

 

David Silk

The Athlete of the Week is sophomore David Silk. David is a wide receiver and cornerback on the football team. David has been playing football for three years and feels he is “experienced.” The football team practices everyday, but David takes it upon himself to practice during his own time as well. He balances academics and athletics by practicing good time management. If he could play against anyone, it would be against Jalen Ramsey. David’s inspiration is Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Football has become David’s passion, and he says that for students to strive to be their best, “they should keep working hard on and off the field.” David enjoys playing on the WHS Football team because of the supportive atmosphere and team culture. After high school, David would like to attend a Division I school, play football, and major in business. David’s coach would describe him as “hard working and coachable.”
