Support for our schools and their sports are nearly unmatched here in East Dallas. Woodrow Wilson and Bishop Lynch are both having great years athletically, excelling in a  number of sports.

At Woodrow Wilson High School, the boys cross country team won district and girls finished second in coach Dave Nibert’s first year as coach. Both teams went to regionals as part of their successful year.

    It some how hurts Will to ever acknowledge that Bryan Adams pulls its own in any endeavor, athletic or academic. The fact that it does so while Woodrow pulls so many of BA’s students away is quite an accomplishment.

    Interesting the cover story is about the Bryan Adams side of the lake, yet no mention that they shared the district title.
