From the Athletic Director: Fall 2019

Dear Fans of Woodward Athletics,

Thank you once again for your tremendous support during the fall 2019 athletic season.

It was truly an excellent season for all of our teams, with our football, volleyball, softball, clay target, cross country, and cheerleading teams competing at the highest level with the integrity and drive that we’ve all come to expect from our student-athletes. I couldn’t be prouder of the work they put in, and the growth they showed.

This fall, our football and volleyball teams each won their regions, while our competition cheerleading team and each of our cross country teams finished as region runners-up. Every fall team made it to the state playoffs, with the clay target team finishing with its best ever score in the state tournament. Our football team impressed everyone in the Woodward community with its outstanding season, making it all the way to the state semifinals.  

I invite you to read about our incredible student-athletes and coaches in this fall edition of War Eagle Watch. Along with the recaps, you’ll find an insightful feature article on our new eSports team that debuted this past school year, as well as a Q&A with assistant athletic director Gene Patterson.

It continues to be our honor and privilege to educate your wonderful children in what it takes to achieve excellence on and off the playing field or court. We are so very proud of the work that they’ve put in, the character they’ve shown throughout the season, and the people they are becoming.

Go War Eagles!

Jose Fernandez, Ed.D., Athletic Director
