Recognizing/Celebrating the Senior Athletes from around Guilford County:Our Next Senior Takeover/Senior Stampede goes to Western Guilford High School(Home of the Hornets)

We are celebrating our Guilford County senior athletes, and we are looking to bring in all of the senior athletes from the county high schools and give them a good sendoff, and we do that with our Senior Take Over/Senior Stampede…

Today we begin our recognition of the Western Guilford Hornets, out on Friendway Drive, just off of West Friendly Avenue, on the west side of town…Some say the West side is the Best side of town, and that often comes from the eyes of the beholder….

We have senior athletes from Western Guilford and have our current list and we expect to be seeing more of these Senior Hornets and we plan on adding to our list…Today, we just want you to get a taste of what this Western Guilford Hornet list is looking like, since it is a quiet Memorial Day Weekend and you need some new content to study, while we are waiting for more of the action to pick back up again, later in this week…

We need to thank Western Guilford Athletic Director Chris Causey, for sending us the info to get this list of his Senior Athletes started, and we also thank the WG coaches that have already sent their information our way…Great to get this good news on the WG Celebrating Senior Athletes and we are going to be looking for more to add to this list…
(We are still building the list.)
**********We have added in the members(Senior Athletes) from the Western Guilford Cross Country team, coached by Dr. Marc Putnam….**********

We saw lot of the Hornet football players over the past few seasons, and we were there for a lot of the Hornet baseball games with Coach Wood leading the way…Made it to several Hornet hoops contests(Coach Harris and company) and even took in a WG wrestling match at Grimsley this past season, with Coach Melton at the Hornets’ Wrestling helm…We heard from Coach Jim Beck when these list of athletes were coming in, and we hadn’t heard from him since his days back at Oak Ridge…And yes, lest we forget, Torin Fury helped us with the baseball team roster and that got these list of Senior Athletes rolling…

Mr. Pete Kashubara is the outstanding leader of the Western Guilford High School, and as the principal, he works with Coach/AD Causey, to keep the Hornets challenged and hard-working on the fields and in the classroom…

Here is what Mr. Kashubara is playing in his office right now, as he looks back at his Class of 2020 senior students….
Click On and you can begin to call out all of the Hornets’ names and like we said above, we will be adding more Hornets names and colleges in here, as we get them this week…
CLICK ON

As soon as the Pomp and Circumstance tune is complete, I’m sure the graduating Seniors will to begin the Celebration and this song will take them into the Celebratory Mood…It is time to play “Celebration”, from Kool and the Gang….
