This fall, Annie Wright offers varsity soccer and volleyball to girls, and cross country for boys and girls. Soccer is coached by Niki Taylor and Holly Drown, Volleyball by Jeff Grosshans, and Cross Country by Troy Droubay. The 2018-2019 school year officially started August 29, but fall sports teams started practicing August 20. 

In addition to the traditional fall sports, the Physical Education department is offering a credit-bearing racquet sports class after school. With a focus in tennis, this after-school program, held at the new Galbraith Tennis Center, will also explore pickleball and badminton.

The USG soccer team kicked off with a pre-season non-league game against the Northwest school on September 6 at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukilwa. The Gators lost but look to improve in their upcoming games.

Both volleyball and soccer have games tomorrow, Saturday, September 8, against Cedar Park Christian Schools. This will be the first official game for Annie Wright in the Nisqually League (last year Annie Wright was in the Emerald City League). Cross Country will have their first official meet September 11 at Fort Steilacoom Park, starting at 4:45 pm.
