Wildcats Honored with Fox 5 Pep Rally

Special to the Fayette County News –

To the victor go the spoils, and the Whitewater Wildcats are enjoying the successes of their football team. On the heels over their victory against their rivals from Starr’s Mill to claim the region championship, the Wildcats were named the High 5 Sports Team of the Week, bringing with it a massive pep rally and TV appearance.


As part of their long-running tradition, Fox 5’s Good Day Atlanta featured Whitewater’s pep rally as Paul Milliken led them through multiple segments on the morning show. The marching band, cheerleaders, and dance team were all featured in the lead-up to the football team receiving the coveted Team of the Week trophy, the first the school has won since 2010..

The celebration was fun but it won’t last long. The Cats get back to work Oct. 29 on the road against Northgate.
