Middle School Scholar’s Bowl
Westbrook’s Middle School Scholar’s Bowl students have put in a lot of effort over the past year getting ready for the district and state tournaments. From October through December, each Wednesday they competed against local schools and continued to improve in their knowledge and processing skills. This past Saturday our Middle School Scholar’s Bowl team competed in the Middle School District Tournament held at Gadsden City High School. Eleven teams from northeast Alabama attended and were divided into two pools. The top two teams from each pool automatically qualified for the State Tournament. We were in pool A with 5 other schools. We finished the 5 round pool play with 4 wins and 1 loss and tied with two other teams for the top spot. Each team had beaten a different team so no team was beaten head to head. The tie breaker then went to the Point Total Average per round.Our team finished with a point total average of 282 per round. This putus second in our pool and qualified our students for state. I cannot express just how proud and excited I am that these students competed so well and will have the opportunity to compete at State! The State tournament will be held on Saturday, February 27 at Hoover High School. Please congratulate and keep the members of our scholar’s bowl team in your prayers as they continue to prepare for the tournament. I would also like to thank the rest of the members of the Scholar’s Bowl class for their help and participation each day in class and to the high school members who helped out by running the local match tournaments. The members of the 2015-2016 Westbrook Middle School Scholar’s Bowl team who competed and qualified for the state tournament are Will Vice, Brett Fouts, Issac Barkley, Deacon Godfrey, Lauren Taylor, and Joy Buchi. CONGRATULATIONS to each one of you!
6’1” Senior Guard Kyle Leonard scored his 1000th career point for the Westbrook Warriors Thursday night against the Gaston Bulldogs. Kyle has been a starter for the Warriors for the past 3 years. He has excelled not only on the basketball floor but also in the classroom. Best of luck to Kyle and all of the members of the Westbrook Varsity Boys Basketball Team for the rest of the season.
The Gadsden Times called her a “sharp shooter”, yeah, that sounds about right. To earn the title of “sharp shooter” one has to put in a great deal of practice, effort, care and precision. Those are ways any coach would describe Abby. She has spent countless hours in the gym working on her shot. Many have said over the years, “I love to watch her shoot” or “Man that girl has range”. The hard work and determination paid dividends Tuesday, January 26th against Walter Wellborn. Abby Lockridge in the second quarter of play off of a screen from senior Paige Williams and an inbound pass from Olivia Graham, Abby scored a 3 point shot she will not forget. Abby has played basketball since the 7th grade for Westbrook; she embodies what all coaches are looking for in a player no matter the sport. She is coachable, hardworking, determined, focused, and driven. I am very proud of her! Congrats Abbs!
