Coach Ashley Mize and your WHS Varsity Basketball Cheerleaders are gearing up for another amazing season! The basketball cheerleaders are already busy practicing and learning new cheers to keep fans and players pumped up during what promises to be a wonderful season for Woodstock! We are bursting with energy and so ready to hit the court alongside our Varsity Wolverines in November. This squad loves to show their school spirit and pump up the crowd with high-energy cheers and volume you just cannot ignore. The seniors are working hard to make this the best year yet. This year the team is the most spirited we have had and they are eager to cheer both teams to victory. Last year we were there to cheer both teams on during history making seasons—this year we are excited to show the state that we Woodstock was just warming up and now we are here keep making history! The WHS Basketball program is a welcoming and wonderful program to be associated with and it is an honor to be at the games to support them. This team is blessed to be a part of this family! Please help me in welcoming the 16-17 WHS Varsity Basketball Cheerleaders: Katrina Basto, Katilyn Boyer, Alicia Carter, Cateria Donaldson, Kristina Drones, Sha’Reece Gates, Daija Heard, Dymond Henderson, Taylor Lucero, Kelly Maloney, Ashley McMunn, Shae Ridley, Allyson Seyden, Grace Sumner and our awesome Manager, Sidney Hinton!
I remember being at a home game and the fans of the opposing teams call our Lady Wolverines Barbie Dolls. I couldn't help but to yell back," yes they are and we will take that. As if that was an insult lol!!!" Needless to say our Lady Wolverines are brains, beautiful, and were the toughest Barbie's to beat on the court. I watch these young ladies fall on the floor for balls and get back up with ease. They can shoot the ball, take it to the hole on you, and cross you up to break them ankles like only Lady Wolverine Barbie's can do. They reach mile highs in the 2015-2016 season and I was one of their biggest fans. So to the Barbie's who are no longer with us and the Barbie's who are still here, continue to let your feet and hand actions show what real Barbie's can do!!
What an awesome season! We had so many victories and some defeats, but we never gave up. The two teams built bonds on and off the court. We wish our 2015-2016 seniors well in their first year at college and on the courts at a college level. Our head coaches were both named Region Coaches of 2015-2016 season and Coach Clark was named Cherokee County Region Coach of this season. Coach Crowe was Woodstock High School Teacher of The Year for 2016-2017. Coach Lack also was named Rookie of The Year for 2016-2017. Coach Michea completed his first year as a teacher and assistant coach for the boys. Coach Michea had the opportunity to even coach a game or two as head. Along with Coach Michea came two little boys Cooper and Gray, that stole the players hearts. Coach Glasper retired after serving as an educator and coach to many including the entire girls coaching staff. To top the cake we finally have Coach Hightower engage to his beautiful fiancé Kelly Breeden. Thanks to all the coaches families who support them behind bench, without you who will keep them grounded! Thanks to our parents and tip off club for all that you do. We are Woodstock Strong, Family First, Team Strong!!!! Special Thanks/Praise to our Principal Mark Smith and our Athletic Director Tonya Sebring for their continued support and being the biggest cheerleaders we have!
IS IT HERE YET!!!!!!
Woodstock wolverine basketball teams say that basketball season can't get here fast enough. Last season they did not go as far as they would have liked to, but this season they are determined to handle unfinished business. Over the 2015-2016 season, everyone seen these young ladies and men grow and develop new basketball skills, and this year will be even better. Coach Julie Crowe and Coach Kingston Clark Jr., head coaches, have expectations that they really want the girl’s and boy’s teams to reach in this season.
Both head coaches have higher expectations for their more seasoned players to set examples for the newcomers. Overall these players and the coach are very excited to start a new season and as they say, “We are Woodstock!!”
