We are thrilled to celebrate the incredible growth and accomplishments of our Middle School Athletics program during the 23-24 school year under the direction of Mr. Kettler, Athletic Director!

Here are just a few highlights:

New Programs Added: This year, we introduced cheer and softball clubs to our lineup for middle schoolers!

10% Student Participation Increase: The participation percentage of athletes as compared to our total enrollment has grown by 10% compared to last year! It's heartwarming to see so many students getting involved and embracing the spirit of sportsmanship not only from WPMS, but also Merit Academy, local homeschooled students, and our 6th grade boys and girls basketball players.

97.6% Athlete Eligibility Rate: Academic success is a top priority, and we are proud to announce a remarkable 97.6% athlete eligibility rate this year. Our student-athletes are not only excelling on the field but also in the classroom, showcasing their dedication to both academics and athletics.

State Championships: Ten of our Cross Country athletes represented WPMS at the Colorado State Middle School State Cross Country Championships this year and two of them finished in the Top 10 of 171 runners state-wide!

Future Goals: Our journey doesn't stop here. We have ambitious plans for next year, including an integration of cheer and softball into our CHSAA Tri-County League and we’ve got our sights set on adding soccer and baseball programs!

Thank you to our dedicated coaches, supportive parents, and, most importantly, our incredible student-athletes for making WPMS Athletics a beacon of growth and success. Together, we are shaping a legacy of sportsmanship, perseverance, and achievement. Here's to many more victories on and off the field!
