Practices will be three days per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays) until 4:30 p.m.  **Please note: we might have to shorten the season a little as well as juggle some of the practice days once in a while due to holiday performances in the Student Center, all of the holidays we are trying to work around, and the school musical production.

Congrats to Flag Football and Girls’ Volleyball on great seasons! Flag Football lost a heart-breaker to Leman Academy in the first round, and Girls’ Volleyball brought home another championship this past Friday. A job well done to all of the athletes who participated in a fall sport.
Coming up…. Our winter season is about to begin! This winter, we will offer coed soccer for our middle school students. Soccer practice begins on Monday, November 6. Practices will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from immediately after school until 5:00 p.m. in the park behind the school. Games begin the week of November 20th.
Softball: Unfortunately, we did not have enough girls sign up to field a softball team.
