What is your favorite memory or staff member from your time at WHS?
“Great memories of tennis season all 4 years with Coach Reed. Qualifying for State in doubles and reaching the quarterfinals in 2008 was amazing. Also, qualifying for State in the 50 Free for my first time as a junior in 2007 was an incredible experience.”

What small piece of advice would you give to current WHS students?
