Wilson hosts Quad Night for future Wildcats!

Glen A. Wilson High School (GAWHS) is hosting Quad Night on Friday, Sept. 23 for future Wildcats to get a taste of the Wilson school spirit! 

Quad Night is an event that celebrates future Wildcats by allowing free entry into the varsity football game for all K-8 students rocking GAWHS colors: cardinal and gold. Mesa Robles and Cedarlane middle school bands are also performing alongside the Royal Wilson Marching Alliance (RWMA) in the pre-game show! GAWHS’s football team will be playing against Ontario High School on Quad Night, to which Quad students and parents will have preferred seating. Moreover, Quad students and parents can also participate in face painting and various other activities! 

As it has been over two years since Quad Night was last held, GAWHS Associated Student Body (ASB) and administrators alike have been busy making preparations for Friday’s event. 

Assistant principal David Purcey, who is coordinating the event, pointed out the significance of Quad Night.

“[The goal is] to showcase Wilson and give our future Wildcats a true Wilson experience while recognizing our notable softball alumni,” Purcey said. 

ASB president Caroline Gin (12) expressed that she hopes the event will excite future Wildcats and encourage them to join Wilson’s clubs and activities when they attend high school. Gin further shared that she simply wants the younger students to take away good memories from the night’s events.

“I want them to just have fun and enjoy the night. I hope they have a fun time watching the football game, coloring pictures and meeting students from our school,” Gin said. 

ASB will be in charge of welcoming families and handing out supplies for face painting and coloring activities.

The RWMA will also be showcasing a stellar musical performance in collaboration with Mesa Robles and Cedarlane middle school bands.

Aaron Yang (12), a member of the RWMA, revealed that preparing for Quad Night has been a fun experience for him and he is anticipating good outcomes from Friday’s performance. 

“[Preparations have allowed] me to talk to the underclassmen and also see how they feel about the music and also being able to be a better ensemble with more people,” Yang said. “Because of this, I am looking forward to playing with the middle school bands, to see their level of playing, play stand tunes with them and to overall have a good time.”

GAWHS will be opening its campus at 6:30 p.m. for the RWMA’s pre-game show on Friday, Sept. 23. Families and students are all welcome to enjoy the varsity football game—along with the many performances and activities taking place!
