  • Pride In Our School
    Fall 2018

    The fall season is in full swing, and we are well on our way to another successful school year at WCS. I wanted to start by thanking Ms. Marchese, Mr. Suleski and their students for helping to beautify the courtyard. Ms. Marchese’s classes helped plant flowers and stained the gazebo. Mr. Suleski and his students fixed and replaced some boards on the gazebo. It is great to see our faculty and students take pride in our school. 

    Our fall sports teams are enjoying success as I write this article. We are very pleased with the effort and dedication of our student-athletes and coaches.

    LetSaw varsity football finished the regular season 6-1 and went into sectionals as the third seed. The team has gelled this year and has dominated most of their opponents. We had key victories over LeRoy and Hornell. I believe this is the first time that we have ever beat these teams. Congratulations to the athletes and coaches for their success and good luck in sectionals!

    Letchworth-Warsaw United boys’ soccer team completed the regular season this year with a 14-0-2 record and secured the second seed in sectionals. This is the second year of our boys’ soccer merger. The players and coaches have proven that dedication and commitment to their sport and each other are the keys to success. Congratulations to the boys on their undefeated season. The team lost 1-0 to Bath-Haverling in the Section V Class B2 championship game.

    Our girls’ soccer team entered the post-season with a record of 12-3-1 and was seeded second. This group of girls played together for years and it showed. After losing the last two years in the championship game, the girls finished this season with a loss to Addison in the semi-finals. 

    Girls’ volleyball won its division and defeated Holley in the first round of sectionals. We have a large number of seniors on this year’s team and they have contributed to Coach Stackhouse’s 300 victories. The girls won on October 13, giving Coach Stackhouse her 300th victory. Congratulations to Coach Stackhouse and team.

    Our Cross Country team this year started with six runners. Coach Fultz has done an excellent job as seven more runners joined the group. We are a young squad as we have one senior and the rest of the runners are in grades 8, 9 and 10. The athletes have been working hard and setting goals to beat their personal best times. Good luck to our runners. Finish out the season strong!

    Our fall cheerleading squad won the Arkport Tournament and placed third in leagues. The squad competed in the Co-Ed Division at sectionals and placed second.

    When you are reading this, the fall sports season will be over. Hopefully we have added some sectional champs to the record books.

    In the fall, I always like to remind students about a few things to do to be successful.

    • Attend school every day;
    • Take pride in the quality of your own work;
    • Help your class out with activities and events around the school;
    • Push yourself; take rigorous courses even if you think it is a bit over your head;
    • Pick up garbage in the halls and use the trash cans;
    • Ask a question even when you think everyone else “gets it”;
    • Learn from your mistakes, own it, don’t repeat it, and move on.
