Runners Go The Distance

Austin Christmas and Sadie Tharp competed in the "Texas Distance Festival" track meet recently. They both ran in the Elite division against some of the best distance runners in the state.

Austin Christmas ran the 800 meters. He got tripped while challenging the leader at the 600 mark and somehow regained his balance and managed to place 4th with a time of 1:59.

Sadie improved on the school 3200 meter record that she already held by 12 seconds! She placed 2nd in the Elite crowd with a time of 10:54.

Softball News

Softball recently played and lost to Keller High 19-9, however the girls did hit very well. They managed to score 9 runs despite having to overcome quite a few defensive errors. This is a very big deal considering Keller is the back to back 6A State Softball Champions. 9 runs in any other game would have probably sealed a win.

Our softball program is very competitive, and these kids work very hard both during the season and over the summer and fall to get better. These ladies are responsible, academically oriented, and talented.

WHS is proud of these ladies. This is a good team, WHS just happens to be in one of the most competitive Softball districts in Texas.

We did win the Championship of the Stephenville Tournament March 8-10. Kristen Kamnick was nominated for the athlete of the week after collecting 5 home runs in that tournament.

Keep up the good work, ladies!

News from Homeplate

The Kangaroo Baseball team got into the win column in district last week by beating Keller Central 12-0. The Roos has a great pitching performance by Zach Swain going the distance for the 1 hit shutout and striking out 5 Charger hitters. Offensively James Moreno had a two run home run, Blake Burrows, Jake Seglem, and Ashton Ross all had doubles. Chance Ragsdale also had two singles and three RBI’s.


Then the Roos played again last Friday and got a big win Friday night after scoring 5 runs in the top of the 7th inning to beat Keller Central 5-1. Philip Zamarron drew a walk to lead off the 7th inning. Pierce Morris then got a one out single to move the pinch runner Chris Molina to 3rd base. Molina then scored on a throwing error by the catcher to tie the game. The Kangaroos then loaded the bases with 2 outs when Jake Seglem walked for the game winning RBI scoring Morris. Mason Hilton got the win on the mound striking out 10 and allowing 2 hits and 1 run. Morris came on to pitch the 7th inning striking out one hitter to close it out for the win. The Kangaroos will be back in action next week vs Timber Creek.

Good job, Roos!

Jefferson-Polk and Huggins Recognized

Anna Jefferson-Polk played in the Chicken Express All-Star game in Mineral Wells this past Saturday. More importantly, Anna was just named to the AAAAAA All-State Team by the TGCA (Texas Girls Coaches Association).


Also, Gabbie Huggins was named 2nd Team Academic all-state by the Texas High School Coach's Association (THSCA) this week. Gabbie lead the Lady Roos in rebounds with a 10.1 rpg avg. and was the second leading scorer at 7.9ppg. She also carried a 100.68 gpa on a 100 pt scale conversion.


So proud of Anna and Gabbie!

Boys Soccer Results

The Varsity Boys Soccer team overcame two deficits at Old Birdville Stadium to defeat Haltom 3-2 last Tuesday night. Trailing 1-0 in the first half Juan Villanueva scored a great goal off a direct kick to tie up the game. Down 2-1 at half the Roos showed tremendous effort and fought their way back when Vincent Santibanez scored the equalizer off a throw in by Will Cowan assisted by Jesus Hernandez. With 10 minutes left in the game Vincent Santibanez scored the game winner on a breakaway assisted by Jesus Hernandez.


Then last Friday, the varsity boys ended their season with a 6-1 loss at Central on Friday. Down 4-0 at half the Roo Varsity team showed great heart and effort in the final 4O minutes. Waki Ebake scored the only goal assisted by Juan Villanueva.
