The Warren Central Athletic Department would like to wish the entire Warrior Nation a Happy New Year!! Also, we would like to thank all of our loyal students, faculty, parents, alumni, community members and supporters of Warren Township Athletics. This past decade our Warren student athletes and coaches were once again among the states and nations best in the classroom and in competition. This would not be possible without the support of our outstanding academic team that goes above and beyond, before and after school, to provide tutoring. Our unbelievable faculty that supports ALL kids, every crazy fundraiser and teacher appreciation nights. Our administrative team led by the best principal on the planet, Rich Shepler. In addition, special thanks to our Superintendent, Dr. Tim Hanson and our School Board for their unwavering support of Warren Township Athletics. Finally, I must thank the hardest working coaches around that go above and beyond daily. Thank you for making Warren Central Athletics a championship program.
In 2020, our message to our 800 plus student athletes is simple. “Focus on the GRIND and not the SHINE. Move in SILENCE.” In other words, after 2-3 years of being on top of the mountain, it’s time to refocus on what got us there in the first place. That’s hard work, sacrifice, dedication and focusing on the GRIND. This attitude starts in the classroom first and should carry over to competition.
Again, Happy New Year to all of you and we hope to see you this year at a Warren Central Athletic event. If not, please continue to support our student athletes and coaches via social media. #WCFamily #NeverFold
