Check Out WMS Fit Club
The WMS Fit Club is a strength and conditioning program designed for WMSástudents. The program combines age-appropriate weightlifting and gymnastics with high intensity training to deliver optimal fitness and performance, as well as establish a lifetime love of fitness. Proper weightlifting techniques are taught, under the watchful eye of our CrossFit certified trainers Jonathan Pingel and Emily Graham. áTheáprimary goals for this club are to convey the notion that fitness can be fun, and help these teens develop a positive self-image.á Both Mr. Pingel and Ms. Graham are committed to helping them understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise.á

At the Season 1 Competition, Guest Speaker Kyle Kasperbaueráwas in attendance. Kyle won the titleá"3rd Fittest Man in the World" at the CrossFit Games in 2013.

The WMSáSeason 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.

WMS Geography Bee

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!
