By a Slim Margin, the Tide Defeats the Bulldogs Once Again

in Sports by

Hearts pounding. Nerves rattling. Football is just a game, right? Wrong. Tears, confetti, fans fleeing and fists in the air. One is a champion and one fell to defeat. This game was not an ordinary conference championship game. It meant more. There was history between the coaches, the teams and the fan bases. On the field, battling it out to decide the others fate, and the victorious champions of the SEC are the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Money flying in the air, did someone just waste it or spend it wisely?  Alabama and Georgia were back at it again. As for Georgia fans that phrase leaves a bitter taste in their mouths. And, for Alabama fans, it is always sweet. This was supposed to be revenge in the Benz for the dawgs, but they failed to complete the mission.

The Wet Wolves started their season with a splash, in the beginning of November. Since then, the swim team has been doing dry lands, taking laps in the pool and eating pounds of pasta, which are just a few of the things that make swim season “the most wonderful time of the year.”

The Wrestling Team Seeks to Defeat This Winter

in Sports by

As many fall sports come to a close, the wrestling team prepares to kickoff the winter season with passion, intent and victory. Along with a new season comes a new list of achievable goals and a set of guidelines to help the team perform to the best of their ability.

Head wrestling coach and Bible teacher Brian St. James said, “We have had a massive amount of success over the past two seasons under coach Stromie. We are a much younger team this season after graduating 10 state placers in the last two years. My goal for our team this season is to win the area dual tournament and have 4 individual state placers. We have a great group of underclassmen who I hope can gain invaluable experience this season by filling in some key varsity positions.”

Ending the last softball season with a State Championship set the bar high for the 2018 season; however, the Wesleyan Softball season has gone above and beyond with their season so far.

The team kicked off the road to state with a Region Championship win for the sixth year in a row, and they are entering into the state tournament in the first seed. The Wolves defeated Landmark Christian School 7-2 and junior Madison Kerpics pitched the entire games, “while striking out 18 people to earn the win in the circle” (Gwinnett Prep Sports). “Our team really worked together to win the region game. Everyone played well and our ability to work together is what really helped us throughout that game and the season,” said senior Savannah Sommer. The win for the team was impressive, but what came with the win was even better. “After the game, we got new golden cleats as a deal with our coaches, which was almost as great as winning the game,” said senior Jennifer Nolan.
