Why are we the West Ridge Wildcats?
In 1987, our school was brand new, and like any other new school we had to choose our name and our mascot. The first year students voted on the name West Ridge, but there was some indecision when it came to what our mascot would be. The girls wanted us to be the Pink and Purple Unicorns, while the boys wanted to be the Green and White Wildcats. Obviously, the Wildcats won in the end, but it's still cool to know where our mascot comes from.
