In what has been a remarkable fall sports season at Woodward Academy, both fall sports teams (football and cross country) are extending their season after qualifying for their respective state events. The cross country team has had their best season to date after recently winning their conference title and being ranked 10th in the state. After inclement weather postponed the district state qualifying meet, the Knights ran yesterday and finished second as a team and have qualified for the State Meet that will be run this Saturday in Fort Dodge. This marks the third time that a WA team has qualified for State with the last time being in 2007.
After a win this past Friday against Martensdale St. Marys, the WA football team is playing their first round state playoff game this Wednesday at Griswold. After a shaky start to the season, the Knights finished 4-3 in the District, which qualified them for the playoffs. This marks the first time that a WA football team has played in the tournament.
