Coach Fisher........."This group dedicated themselves to Strengthening The Team in all areas. The result was the best season in school history and our first trip to the State Championship Game. Thirty-nine of our players made the A/B Honor Roll, many with the highest GPA of their academic career during the first semester of the 2022-2023 school year. The hard work of our WCHS Faculty, our Academic Coordinator Ms. Megan Pawlowski and our young men made this a reality."
