As the leaves turn to vibrant shades of red and gold, and the chill of the autumn fills the air, the fall sports season comes to an end and winter sports season approaches. To celebrate the end of the season, Westerville North High School (WNHS) ends on a high note with the Fall Athletic Recognition Night on Wednesday, Nov. 15. This event promises to be an evening filled with celebration, recognition, and gratitude for the dedication and hard work of the student-athletes and coaches.

Center back and Varsity soccer player Clara Stewart, reflects on the season. 

“I think all of the girls have been working really hard from training in the summer to practice during the season and it has paid off through us scoring more goals as the season progressed,” Stewart said. 

Stewart said she is excited for the banquet because she believes it is a good way to recognize each athlete’s accomplishments as well as specific people who have stood out as leaders in their team.

For the girls golf team, Betsy Gegick, WNHS Varsity girls golf coach, shares the same excitement.

“Rose Yancey was our first female golfer since 2012 to qualify for the district tournament out of sectionals, and this was the largest team in at least 10 seasons, including a Varsity & JV again this year, with 15 members total.” said Gegick. As a team, they also broke 400 in one of their 18 hole tournaments, which hasn’t happened in at least 10 years.

Gegick proudly notes the growth of each golfer, emphasizing the importance of both individual improvement and collective support.

The Fall Athletic Recognition Night is not just a celebration, it’s evidence of the strength and unity of the school’s athletic community. As the event approaches, one thing is certain: the fall athlete students will be leaving the season with lasting memories of their many achievements. 

“It’s a special time where we’re able to look back on our season with a lot of pride and tell some really fun stories from memories of the season,” Gegick said.
