The Winter Park Wildcats Wild Year

March 8th, 2010 8:54 AM by David W. Welch

I live in Baldwin Park in uptown Orlando, and our high school is Winter Park. As a parent, I could not be more pleased to have my daughters attending the schools in this area. Audubon Elementary, Glenridge Middle and Winter Park High School are absolutely top notch. This week is FCAT week, and I am sure all three will excel as they always have. This particular school year has just been phenomenal for Winter Park High School. The football team played for the state 6A championship. They came up a little short, but playing for the state championship in Florida is tough. As a state, we produce more 1-A college football talent than just about any other area of the country. The Sound of the Wildcats marching band won the state championship title, and I was there to watch them. A couple of parents from other schools leaned over to me and my wife and said that Winter Park was in a completely different class from every other band.

This past weekend was another reminder of the fantastic things going on here with our schools. Dr Phillips in SW Orlando and Winter Park played for the 6A state basketball championship. Winter Park came out on top, but what a great statement about high school athletics here in Central Florida. The Winter Park Winter Guard was also crowned champions this weekend in their competition. The arts and athletics are alive and well here in the Winter Park area, and after the FCAT reports come out in a few weeks I expect the tradition of academic excellence to continue as well. Good luck to all the students this week, and GO WILDCATS!
