On Thursday October 30,2014 Wood Middle School held it’s first Golden Spur of the 2014-2015 school year. The Golden Spur is a program to acknowledge the educational achievements and outstanding contributions of students through a process of reinforcement, recognition and rewards. Four students are chosen each nine weeks by their team and elective teachers. These students have displayed excellence during the nine weeks and exemplify what a Golden Spur Wrangler represents. To get a Golden Spur you have to show service, academic excellence/improvement, character, leadership, and citizenship.
Here at Wrangler Field the 8th grade boys took on the undefeated Ed White, Eagles. ”The Wood Wranglers dominated the Eagles in every aspect of the game”, Coach Heine said. The final score of 28 – 0 brought the Wranglers another district championship two years in a row. The coaches are now looking forward to what the 7th grade teams will bring next year and to the upcoming basketball season.
Coach Alford shared that he was very proud of the 7th grade football teams as they brought home the 2nd place in district award. ”13 wins is a lot of wins -its a nice year to have”Coach Alford said.
