Welcome to the Walled Lake Central High School Student Activities portion of Lakes Valley Conference! Here are some highlights from the Walled Lake Central High School Student Activities and Leadership groups. Enjoy! GO VIKINGS!
The Passion for Life 5K run/walk and five mile run recently took place around Walled Lake with over 600 participants supporting braving the wind and rain for the organization’s 10th annual event. This year’s event brought in $35,000 for Mott Children's Hospital, the McEwen Family (2017 Inspirational Family), and all of the organization’s previous Inspirational Families.
Nebojsa Stojkovic, Passion for Life Organization CEO/Founder and WL Central teacher said, “This event has truly become an Annual Traditional that stands the test of time and weather and an event that the community has come to appreciate and look forward to each year. From a teaching and coaching perspective, I could not imagine starting out our Track & Field season without this event as our parents, student athletes, and alumni have embraced the mission of this event for the past decade.”
The Walled Lake robotics team brought home the winning banner this weekend at the FIRST Robotics Lansing District competition. In an Alliance with Grand Rapids team 3357 and Goodrich team 494, Walled Lake team 308 battled through the quarter and semi-final elimination rounds to compete in the final against Whitmore Lake team 3668, Jackson team 2611, and Lake Orion team 302. Hampered by breakdowns ranging from drive motors to mechanical winch issues, the Monsters held it together until the very end with a final round alliance win of 272 to 262 points. Congratulations go out to all of our robotics team members from Western and Central High Schools in this amazing victory!
