The Wesleyan Swim and Dive team had an impressive performance at state to finish out their already successful season. Beginning in October, the Wet Wolves pushed through close to five months of strenuous training and a rigorous schedule to earn their spot at state. With such a talented state team, there was much potential for a great showing. Head Coach Kevin Kadzis said, “The team morale was really high. Everyone was very optimistic about the possibilities of doing very well.”
Despite spending one hour every day, five days a week for nine months out of the year with their teachers, many students do not have an opportunity to really get to know them. With the addition of Teacher Spotlight to the Green and Gold, students are able to learn more about their teachers within a matter of minutes.
The Wesleyan Winter Wolves are currently nearing the end of their respective seasons. With swimming, basketball and wrestling nearing a close, athletes share their hopes for the remainder of their seasons.
Freshman swimmer, Hannah Wasmuth, has set specific goals to achieve in before the state meet at Georgia Tech. “Before going to Georgia Tech, I want to improve on my technique, so I can be at my best for the state meet,” Wasmuth said. Many other swimmers attended challenging practices over the Christmas break. “No days off!” swimmers said.
Out of the water, the varsity girls’ basketball team has also been preparing for their state tournament. “Our team is feeling really good about our accomplishments this season,” sophomore Caroline Burke said. “That being said, we have some tough competition ahead of us, so we have to keep working hard,” said Burke.

All the hard training started with “Christmas Practices.” Senior Alex Burke said, “Christmas practices were the most physically demanding practices that I have experienced in a long time.
