Our National Honors Society students of WGHS made food baskets to support our families in need through Willow Glen Cares. Great kids making a difference in our school community.
Congratulations to Waking Bailey and Grant Chiponis for receiving October Athlete of the Month honors. Waking Bailey was a regular highlight reel for the Rams his season. Accumulating over 1000 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns on the season, Bailey was a consistent home run threat. Bailey flashed some of that brilliance in the final CCS game for the Rams as he scampered for an 82 yard touchdown run in the third quarter versus Leland High School. His hard work and team first attitude has helped guide the football team this season. Grant Chiponis made a big splash for the Rams this season holding down the Hole Set position. Not sure what occurs under the water, but above the water Chiponis could be seen consistently shredding the net. The 6’4 beast netted 105 goals on the season while adding in 19 assists and 25 steals. The mild mannered captain for our Boys Team was a beacon for guidance all season long.
Congratulations to our Varsity Field Hockey team for capturing Willow Glen’s first CCS Academic Team Championship with a team GPA of 3.8148. That leads all other CCS qualifying schools, which range from San Francisco to King City. Great job on the field and in the classroom. Go Rams!
