Last week the West Ashley High School varsity football team officially kicked off the 2014 regular season when they gave the Bishop England Bishops a whipping on the road. Coming into the season ranked #9 in the Lower State, many in West Ashley are excited about this team, and for good reason. It seems as if head coach Bobby Marion has put together a program that is finally competitive with the other powerhouses in the county. This Friday, Sept. 5 they play the first home game of the year when they host Hilton Head High School at Wildcat Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
First-year WAHS principal William Runyon is not only excited about the Wildcats’ football team, but he’s also thrilled about the strides other fall sports are making such as cross country, volleyball, girls tennis, girls’ golf, swimming, and the cheerleading. Runyon, who is a former coach himself, recognizes the importance of sports in developing a bond with the community. That is why he is inviting the community to bring a lawn chair and come out for the WAHS Fall Sports Pep Rally this Thursday, Sept. 4, at 7:30 p.m at the Chick-Fil-A on Magwood Road.
The community-wide pep rally is not something that the school has done before and the WAHS marching band and chorus will perform and they will recognize of the WAHS art studio, NJROTC, Young Gentleman’s Club, and yearbook staff.
Chick-Fil-A is donating 15 percent of all submitted receipts back to WAHS between 5-10 p.m. There will also be a competition, where the winner will receive Chick-Fil-A free once a week for a year. The WAHS Athletic Department will be giving away two Athletic Passes as well as some WAHS merchandise.
The community-wide WAHS Fall Sports Pep Rally will be this Thursday, Sept. 4, at 7:30 p.m at Chick-Fil-A, located at Magwood Road, located at 2013 Magwood Dr. in the Ashley Crossing Shopping Center.
