From the Athletic Director: Fall 2020

Dear Fans of Woodward Athletics,

I would like to start by thanking you all for your tremendous support of our athletic teams this year. This has truly been one of the most difficult years of our lives! We have all experienced some level of adversity as we have navigated the last nine months of this pandemic. We truly could not have made it through successfully without the commitment of our community.

A shining light through this dark period for me personally has been the admirable grit and determination demonstrated by our athletic teams.

In a season and year stranger than any before, our student-athletes excelled not just in their performance on the field of play but in their character and attitude. 

This fall, our volleyball, cross country, and softball teams each won their regions, while our football team, in its first season at a higher classification, finished runner-up in its region. Every fall team made it to the state playoffs, including the clay target team, which finished in the top 10. We are so very proud of all they accomplished, and we invite you to read about our incredible student-athletes and coaches in this fall edition of War Eagle Watch.

It remains my deepest honor to take part in the education of your children, especially in a year like this one. Their attitude and commitment to excellence has inspired me every day, and I hope and trust that you are equally proud.

Go War Eagles!

Jose Fernandez, Ed.D., Athletic Director
