At the Season 1 Competition, Guest Speaker Kyle Kasperbauer†was in attendance. Kyle won the title†"3rd Fittest Man in the World" at the CrossFit Games in 2013.
The WMS†Season 1 Competition had 40 participants and the workout was: As many rounds as possible in 12 mins of 25 Jump Rope, 20 Ball Slams,15 Burpees, 10 Medicine Ball Cleans, and two laps around the Gyms.
Season 2 of the WMS Fit Club will start right after the wrestling season.
The annual WMS Geography Bee took place Friday, January 16, in the WMS Performing Arts Center. Thirty-six contestants from both 7th and 8th grade battled it out for 7 rounds before the top 10 were filtered out. With questions ranging from global cities, to continents, to major US Sports teams' homes the competition and questions were fierce. After 2 hours of questioning Daniel Wood, Ian Pinhero and Theo Jansen were left. His gut got him a long way but Daniel bowed out after a few more questions. Ian and Theo were left to continue the wits battle. Theo who is a previous state Geo Bee champ and National Competitor was tough. The final round left both boys with trouble, however the last three questions proved to be Theo's shining moment. With 2 of the last 3 correct he asked for the third and final question to seal his fate. With a question like what is the Bight of Benin, he didn't even blink. With a quick flight of the pen he had the answer and the title. Theo will now take another test to qualify for the state tournament and I bet we will hear more about his successes in the years to come!
Any 8th grade students interesting in trying out for WHS cheer or dance team: There is a parent/student information meeting on Monday, February 2nd at 7:00pm in the Westside High School Little Theater.†
