"The high school has college-level athletic facilities," commented Athletic Director Ron Bligh. "My advice is try sports that you're interested in; come to the pep rallies and Mountaineer Fan Fest; make this your school and show Mountaineer Pride."

"Your involvement in high school co-curricular activities is not only important to your college resume but will contribute to everlasting memories and lifelong friendships," concluded Moore.
