**********Recognizing/Celebrating the Senior Athletes from around Guilford County**********
The Northwest Guilford Senior Athletes page is brought to you by Will Berry and Berico Heating and Air Conditioning…Will Berry, a Northwest Guilford HS grad and Berico support Northwest Guilford High School Athletics…Berico, at 2200 East Bessemer Avenue, or call them at 336-273-8663…Thank-you Will Berry and Berico.

We continue our Senior Takeover/Senior Stampede today with the Northwest Guilford Vikings, from Northwest Guilford High School, on Northwest Guilford School Road…

NWG led by their Athletic Director Mike Everett…..Mike Everett, the former girls softball coach at Northwest, as well the former girls assistant basketball coach and assistant baseball coach for the NWG Vikings….Mike has had his hand in a lot of sports over the years, going back to his days as a basketball and baseball player, at High Point College/University…

We thank Mike for collecting this info on his NWG Senior Athletes from his coaches, and many of them have stepped up in our eyes over the years with Coach Wallace, Coach Reavis, Coach Hackett, Coach Bare, Coach Maness, Coach Payne, Coach Allred, Coach Nancy Everett and many others leading the charge…..

Mike Everett and AD John Hughes before him, have assembled a solid staff of coaches and the job has been handled by in a professional manner….

Ralph Kitley was the administrative leader/principal for Northwest Guilford High School for very many years, before he retired from his lead post back in March…Ralph Kitley, and we ought to call him Coach Kitley, since he was always very supportive of his NWG athletes… Any way, Mr. Kitley ably assisted by assistant principals Donnie Watkins, Wendy Farrow, Kimberly Gilyard and Tanya Hiller

Quite the year for the Senior Athletes from Northwest Guilford, and we remember when Brandon Thomas threw that pass to Christian Hampton, in the boys basketball game at Grimsley and Hampton jammed the basketball and he broke/shattered the backboard….A good way to put it really, because he really jammed it home, and it was on the road…All Robbie Boulton and his other Viking teammates could do, was look on in total disbelief…

Solid year for the Girls Basketball team too, as they captured the HAECO Basketball Tournament crown..And the seniors Baker, Carter, Harkey and Kargo were living in the moment…Hannah, Thalia, Megan and Reagan, very happy along with Coach Hackett

Look for many of these NWG Athletes in Basketball and all of the sports, to go on and do great things in college…We have the NWG Senior Athletes for you, and they are listed under their sport, plus we have where they will be going to college and if they will be playing that sport in college…If the college is listed, the plan is for them to play that sport in college, unless they are listed to be a Student Only…

We still are looking for a few of the colleges the Vikings will be attending, but those college names should be coming in soon, and we have that group separate toward the lower part of our list and we hope to be adding in more info there, as it comes in…

Time now to get serious and begin the Music, as the NWG Viking Senior Athletes begin to cross the center stage, and we have had these kids on here up close and personal over the years, so I am going to ask Megan Harkey and Christian Hampton if they will lead the Senior Athletes in, to the playing of Pomp and Circumstance…Megan and Christian have done some unbelievable things that we had the chance to witness over the years, and those two have been chosen to lead today’s procession…Let’s have at it, as the NWG Viking Senior Athletes begin to march onward, upward and beyond…
Click On and enjoy the processional music…
