This season of sports has truly been one for the record books as many incredible and memorable events have transpired in the Wesleyan community. In two fall sports this season Wesleyan made a run for the state championship in the single A classification. Thanks to the hard work of the athletes and the leadership of their coaches, the Wolves have once again achieved excellence in the opening season of the school year.


For starters, in Columbus, Georgia on Oct. 28, the Wesleyan softball team played in the class A state championship against Tattnall Square Academy. This match was a nail biter as both teams were exceptionally skilled and well prepared for their respective opponent. By the bottom of the eighth inning the score was 4-4 with Wesleyan freshman Reece Holbrook at bat, the tension was high as the wolves already had two outs. “I knew that I needed to go all out. It was all or nothing. I also knew that it would most likely be my last at bat as a freshman, so I wanted to make it good.”  With the final pitch Holbrook hit a walk off home run and claimed the championship victory for the Wolves.

Wesleyan has been locked in AA for a number of years, and it has made quite a name for itself there. Many teams, including tennis, baseball and girls basketball, have won state championships in AA.

However, all of this is about to change. Wesleyan has fewer than 520 students, the threshold required for class AA, so they are now a part of class A. Wesleyan is a part of the largest region in A, and therefore they will be facing a lot of new competition. Although there is some skepticism from the community, this will bring a lot of change to the sports programs creating an overall positive impact at Wesleyan.
