Splashing Into Season

West Clermont High School swim team is diving into its first-ever season starting in November when they get to take the plunge into the school’s brand new competition pool.

The swim team wants to get up to 50 people on the team this year, and that will include students down to 6th grade. There are no tryouts for the swim team, so everyone will make the team.

Swim team member Lily Wilfert said all you need to know is how to swim to make the team. Lily was on the Amelia swim team last year, so she has some experience. “I am very excited for the season and can’t wait to start a new chapter for West Clermont,” said Wilfert.

Tori Bell agrees. “I am very excited for the season to start up,” she said. Tori also added that she made great friends as a swimmer last year and can’t wait to make more this year. Her opinion is that the Wolves will “do great this year!”

There are two teams, one for varsity and one for junior Varsity (jv). The girls’ coach is Coach Bowling, a 7th grade teacher at West Clermont Middle School. She was a swimmer at a young age, so she has plenty of experience. The boys coach is Coach Mayne, and he is a choir teacher at the high school.

The Wolves first meet is November 21, but before that they will be working on getting into shape. Starting on October 23, the team will host three days of swim clinics (at a cost of $20 each) to help students work on stroke technique. The clinics start at 3:15 and will last until 4:30 at West Clermont High School. Continue reading Splashing Into Season

Wolves football recap

It was a sad weekend for both the West Clermont football team, and their fans. After losing Friday night to the Anderson Redskins, 34-42, the Junior Varsity team played Saturday morning and were not able to pull out a win either, losing just 30-48. West Clermont was tied for first place with Anderson and winning the game would’ve knocked the Redskins down to second place. The Wolves were down 27-6 at halftime, but fans never lost hope. “I thought we didn’t give our best in the first half and there needed to be adjustments. They came out at half like a new team and played much better overall. You could see the excitement in everyone when we made a comeback. We had their backs the entire game. We never gave up on our boys” states West Clermont fan, Jules Miller.

Wolves Football Is One Hot Ticket

 

 

Fresh off a big Homecoming win in front of a huge crowd, the West Clermont Wolves football team is off to a great start!

The stadium’s home-side stands were filled Friday night as the team beat Withrow High School 37-7. The bleachers were filled with recent graduates, older alumni, parents and grandparents. And everyone could hear the students in the student section howling away and supporting their team.

“The wolf pack is the best student section in the city” said James Collins, the athletic director for West Clermont High School. Mr. Collins also said that West Clermont has one of the best crowds at away games.img_0770

The attendance at the Wolves’ first football game drew the best crowd yet. Local media estimated the crowd at between 4,000 and 6,000. That night they won against Princeton 28-13, it was a very exciting game.

West Clermont has been having great attendance ever since that game. Even when they played Winton Woods in the pouring down rain, West Clermont fans still came out in their raincoats and rain boots to support the team. The Wolves ended up losing that game and the next game but they did win the last three games after that giving them a record of 4-2!

The Wolves recently had our first Homecoming game against Withrow High School. Collins estimated that they sold between 1100 and 1300 tickets, not including the season passes that run from 600 to 1000. The tickets were sold from Wednesday to Friday at school and also at the game Friday night. Continue reading Wolves Football Is One Hot Ticket

But in the end the girls came out with a win, winning 3 out of 4 games.

The Golden State Warriors refuse White House Invite

      It is tradition for championship teams of all sports to attend The White house after their wins. The Golden State Warriors have elected to not accept President Donald Trump’s Invitation, after winning four to one in their seven game series against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 NBA Finals. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are among

stephen-curry-has-replaced-lebron-james-as-the-best-basketball-player-in-the-world donald-trumpthe most notable of players from the team to be in favor of not attending. The NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant expressed his rationale for his unwillingness to attend, in an interview with ESPN “I don’t respect who’s in office right now, so my voice will be heard by not doing that.”. The White House, under the Trump Administration, has already welcomed other teams such as The Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, as well as The World Series Champion Chicago Cubs in order to honor their titles.
