Our annual dinner auction, A Night Under the Big Top, is quickly approaching on Friday, March 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kennedy Fellowship Hall. So step right up to support the greatest school on earth!

Thanks to the contributions of parents and supporters in our community, we will have plenty of items for the auction. The Ringmaster will be busy! Now, for our next feat … We will begin juggling the many demands to prepare for the big night. Can you help? Please look at the volunteer list and add your name to the job or time that works best for you. It’s a juggling act, but with many hands, we will be ready and have fun in the process!

Please contact Sarah Hajduk, Director of Development, if you have any questions.

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church invites you to Faith in the Public Square Forum on Friday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m. The event will include dinner and live music as well as great discussion. This event will be the first of many forums throughout the year. The goal is to explore issues concerning people of faith living in this world as citizens of God’s Kingdom. This forum will focus on the role that faith has played historically in our nation and its relevance today.

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church welcomes Rev. Dr. Peter Lillback, Ph.D. He is the president and professor of historical theology and church history at Westminster Theological Seminary. He also serves as the president of The Providence Forum and senior editor of the new Unio cum Christo: An International Journal of Reformed Theology and Life. Dr. Lillback’s academic interests include church history, the doctrine of Scripture, public theology, the theology of John Calvin, Johannine Theology, and Christianity as it relates to American history. He authored the biography George Washington’s Sacred Fire which closely examines the life and faith of our nation’s first President.

The cost of this event is $10 and includes dinner. Register here if you plan to attend.

Our younger Lions have come out of the den strong! Training and development are deeply rooted in the WA ladies’ soccer and ladies’ basketball programs. These two winter sport programs recently enjoyed winning the district championships with a preponderance of underclassmen.

The only senior student‐athlete among these two teams is WA “Lifer,” Drew Franta. Drew was part of the Ladies’ Varsity Soccer program that defeated the South Florida Heat 3–1 to bring home the district title. The ladies’ soccer team went on to advance to the regional semifinals for the first time in four years.

A few nights later, the WA varsity ladies’ basketball squad defeated Benjamin 48–46 in a dramatic back and forth battle. It was the first district championship for ladies’ basketball since 2016. They will now advance to the regional finals on Tuesday, February 19.

While the district victories are noteworthy, we especially celebrate the success of these two teams with their extreme youthfulness. Ladies’ soccer graduated ten seniors in 2018 and had only one senior and four juniors on this year’s roster. Ladies’ basketball has not had a senior on their team in the past two seasons.

These district championships are truly a testament to desire, coach‐ability, and development. These student‐athletes have modeled a sincere work ethic which has manifested itself in success when it matters most. Their accomplishments truly epitomize the idea of improving and gelling as a unit,” said Mr. Tony DeMare, Director of Athletics.

We applaud these student‐athletes, as well as Coach Shannon Wallhoff and Coach Dale Renwick for their dedication to WA Excellence!
