BearSeal2014_500rgbGood News Bears: It’s a Whole New Ballgame

“It’s amazing watching this athletics program grow over the years,” reflected Director of Athletics Kevin Miller as the remarkable fall 2013 season wound down.

“It used to be WT’s fall athletics season was over by the second week of October. Now, breaking .500 isn’t enough. Making playoffs isn’t enough. I am so glad to see the kids’ hard work pay off.”

Miller isn’t exaggerating when he calls it “a great season all the way around.” Four teams advanced to the WPIAL playoffs, eight athletes were recognized by the WPIAL for their outstanding performance, and for the second time, Upper School soccer Head Coach Adam Brownold was named WPIAL Class A Section I Coach of the Year. And this fall, more students participated in sports than ever before.

“I am at games all the time,” Miller offered. “I see the kids, the coaches. But now you look across the field, and you see teachers and classmates. You see the support of the whole community. We pack the sidelines. And this is an experience these kids will have forever. You may not remember the final score, but you’ll remember that feeling…We’re always going to look back and remember this fall.”
