This spring, the Wylie Bulldogs have been involved in many athletic activities. Listed below is a brief summary of each team and their accomplishments.



Both the girls and the boys soccer teams exceeded expectations this season. The boys won four games in a row at one point and finished the year with a trip to the playoffs. The girls ended the season with a winning record and were able to make it all the way to the regional quarterfinals. Although both teams lost a large number of seniors, there are many bright spots for both teams and there will more than likely be success ahead for the Wylie Soccer program.


Track & Field

The girls and boys track teams both shared a large amount of success this season. On the boys side, two school records were broken (Victor Charro in the 800 and Kylor Aguilar in the pole vault), and senior Kylor Aguilar was crowned the 5A boys state champion in the pole vault. The girls experienced a large amount of success of their own; the team as a whole captured the 5A district title in Lubbock. The Bulldogs are expecting to continue their dominance in the upcoming 2021-22 track & field season.



The Wylie baseball team has been dominant all season long. The Bulldogs opened the season with a 5-0 record and didn’t look back, achieving a solid 20-8 record during the regular season. The team only got better as the postseason came upon them, and as of May 23rd, the Dawgs have won five straight playoff games. Wylie will face off against Aledo High School on May 29th and must win in order to continue their season.



Wylie’s softball team also found success during the season. The Lady Bulldogs had a 13-14 record during the season, which earned them a spot in the playoffs. After beating Amarillo High School 6-5, Wylie was crowned Bi-district champions. The team went on to win two more playoff games before their season eventually came to an end. There is almost certainly success ahead for the Wylie Lady Bulldogs Softball team in the seasons to follow.



In what should come to no surprise to anyone, the Wylie Tennis team dominated the entire season. While the entire team performed well, three individuals made it all the way to the 5A state tennis tournament. Carly Bontke, Kindall Alford and Stealey Crousen all earned a spot in the tournament, which takes place in San Antonio. Despite only moving up to 5A a few years ago, the Wylie tennis team has already found a way to make its mark and be successful. There is no doubt that the Bulldogs will continue their dominance this next season, as well as the ones to follow.


The Wylie golf team found more success than what was expected of them this season. Two of Wylie’s girls advanced to the regional tournament (Tatum McClellan and Alexia Calderon), and one of the boys moved on to the state tournament in Georgetown. Karson Grigsby, a junior,who had already been to the state tournament once as a freshman. Now that he has two more years of experience under his belt, Grigsby could very well have an exceptional performance this year. The future is bright for not only Grigsby, but the Wylie golf team as a whole.

Congratulations to all of the Wylie athletes and their impressive performances this spring!
