- 213 student athletes participated.
- Their combined GPA is 3.59.
- Skyridge football finished 4th in league this year.
- The Skyridge Girls Cross Country team went undefeated and won the league championship. They also won the District Championship and set a bunch of personal records.
- Skyridge wrestling competed well this year and ended up with one District champion. Their team was predominately 6th grade wrestlers and they should be very good next year.

The Skyridge wrestling season starts on October 22. Wrestling is a great sport that promotes discipline, goal setting and the value of hard work. Students wrestle students of a similar size. Be a part of a team that works together to push each athlete to do their best. Practices are held from 3-5 PM every school day. The season consists of seven dual meets and two tournaments.
Participation requirements include a current physical (good for two years); completed parent authorization form, completed concussion form, and purchase of an ASB card and participation fee. All must be turned in at the Skyridge main office prior to participating.
Participants will need to bring shorts, a t-shirt and a water bottle to every practice.
