WHY WILDCATS INSTEAD OF SPARTANS?
Many graduates prior to 1988 have asked why the school mascot changed from the Spartan to the Wildcat. The Wildcat was adopted by WJ as part of the "merger politics" negotiated when Woodward HS closed its doors. WJ kept their fight song and the Green and White but the Spartan gave way to the Wildcat.
