WHERE EVERY STUDENT IS A STUDENT ATHLETE

 The WCDS Owls compete in the Delaney Athletic Conference Division II for varsity teams and the Valley Middle School Conference for middle school teams. They have won recent championships in volleyball, soccer, and basketball at the Middle School level and volleyball, soccer, basketball and lacrosse at the varsity level.  All students are part of teams in order to earn physical education credit for graduation.  In a given year, depending on student interest, multiple teams are offered at the varsity, junior varsity, and middle school levels. Recent teams include soccer, volleyball, cross country, equestrian, swimming, basketball, skiing, lacrosse, and tennis.  When space is available, fifth grade students are eligible to join middle school teams. The WCDS athletic program is accredited by VISAA, and Athletic Director Mike Costello is a Nationally Certified Athletic Administrator. The School dictum is mens sana in corpore sano (a sound mind in a sound body) and all students are taught to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.

Athletes of the Month

Athlete of the Month for April
Arella Nagle
MS Girls Soccer

Arella scored almost half her team’s goals in the Month of April.  She had a four goal game in the 8-0 win over Sacred Heart Academy on 4/11/18.  She has improved her attack game with persistence often against  much bigger defenders.   She also contributed to the team’s 2-0 win over Chelsea Academy on 4/9/18 that secured the VMSC Regular Season Championship.

Arella is one of our most improved players.  In every game, she has shown determination to get to the ball, whether to shut down counter-attacks or create opportunities for her team.”
~ Head Coach Jeff Day
