Editorial Briefs | Winter sports finishing strong

Wrestling finished another strong season with two state placers and boys basketball got a playoff win for the first time since 2017. The girls face Kansas City Christian tonight and the boys play Jefferson County North at Mission Valley 5:30 p.m. Thursday. It was great to see a return of school spirit, as the parents and pep band participated in an '80s theme Monday night, and it makes us even more excited to eventually pack the gym again.

Rutledge proud of WHS football program’s progress after 4-6 finish

After a season ending 52-6 loss against Centralia, Charger football finished the season with a record of 4-6. 

“A losing season is not something we are happy with, but I am proud of the accomplishments and the direction the program is headed in. We won more games this season than the last three seasons combined and won the first playoff game in 37 years, so those are definite positives,” said head football coach Jess Rutledge. 

“Now, we need to build upon that and take the next step which is to have a winning season and continue playoff success.”
