WC Athletics Needs Your Support

News Type:  Daily Student Parent Staff Alumni Date:  Tuesday, May 5, 2020

Due to COVID-19, athletics had to cut Fish Fry's short, cancel our June 5 golf outing and may have to cancel our summer camps. A significant amount of our athletics budget is based on the money we raise with these fundraisers. 

By making a donation to the WC Athletic program, you can help cover the cost of strength and conditioning services, field maintenance, upgrades to the outdoor scoreboard, uniforms, athletic equipment and other needs that are currently unfunded due to the disruption. Your gift will help next year’s teams flourish despite COVID-19 and the sacrifices we’ve had to make. Please know every donation helps and is greatly appreciated by our staff and student-athletes.
