On Aug 18, the Logan-Rogersville's high school athletes gathered in the high school gymnasium for their annual Meet the Wildcats. The pep rally was an opportunity to show off all the participants in this year’s fall sports. The event kicked off with a performance from the L-R PomCats and Marching Band. Their energy helped set the tone for the rest of the night.
"We are very excited about getting our school year started and our fall season athletics going," expressed Assistant Principal for Logan-Rogersville High school and Athletics Director Sam Wutke.
After the performance, the Wildcat Cheerleaders kept the excitement going with their performance. A cheer that everyone got behind. Jennifer Green, Secretary for the L-R Booster Club, then came to the floor and offered a few words on the club's past efforts, encouraging membership, and reminding everyone of an upcoming fundraiser event on Oct 9 at the Marshfield Golf course.
The remainder of the night introduced all the athletic teams and coaches participating in the fall sports season. The teams presented were as follows: Boys Swimming, Cheerleaders, PomCats, Girls Golf, Girls Tennis, Girls Softball, Cross-country, Boys Soccer, Volleyball, and finally the Football Team.
With the fall sports season underway, the Logan-Rogersville school has been improving its athletic fields thanks to a $32 million bond that voters passed back on Apr 5 of this year. The Wildcat Stadium, in particular, has been getting some much-needed upgrades, including new turf and surrounding track. The stadium is nearing completion, hopefully in time for the first Wildcats football game against East Newton on Aug. 26. Wutke is hopeful and says, “We play next Friday, and our hope is to play right here at Wildcat Stadium. We have got some work that needs to be done in the next week but we feel like we can make it and we are going to make every effort to play there”.
Wutke gave his thoughts on the upcoming season "Certainly starting fall athletics this year feels very different than it did the last two years dealing with COVID. It feels much more normal and I'm anxious for our kids to be able to have that experience that they have not got to have the last couple of years... We get off to a great start Monday with school and get football, softball, and soccer season started off all next Friday."
