On Wednesday night, George Wythe High School re-wrote history.
Never before had a group of boys or girls won a team title at the state level – in any sport. Individual crowns had been claimed, some of them in sports that don’t exist anymore, such as boys gymnastics or the 880-yard dash.
Then came the 2014-15 boys basketball team and its veteran coach, Willard Coker. With immense speed and ferocious rebounding, the Bulldogs defeated Spotswood (Rockingham County) 80-60 and claimed the 3A state title at the Siegel Center.
It was the first in Wythe’s 55-year history.
“I don’t think they realized what they just accomplished,” Coker said. “When they get to middle age, my age, they can look back and relish they were the first team to do it.”
Keeping students engaged year around represents both a challenge and an opportunity. While there are many proven approaches that support students for academic achievement and socialization, we often pay less attention to the importance of nutrition and exercise as resources to boost success. Helping students to connect with food and its value for a healthy start at the beginning and throughout the day represents a good investment in a partnering relationship that can span their entire lives. Learning what kinds of foods comprise a healthy diet and the importance of eating and exercising at the right times could help to reduce obesity, stabilize sugar levels and minimize or eliminate the onset of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and heart ailments. So how can we act now if we are a key player in the life of our nation’s youth…parent, grandparent, relative, family friend, organization etc.
