SPORTS CORNER
 

FLAG FOOTBALL

All three of our teams have shown tremendous improvement from the first couple practices to our first games. So far the defenses for each team has been outstanding with offenses that move the ball methodically down the field. Each of the teams look like contenders in their divisions this year. Each game our coaches are looking for improvement and most importantly ensuring each player is having as much fun as possible! Mrs. Ohlrich, who is leading our girls team, has brought a lot of creativity and spirit to our Athletic Department! 

 
GOLF

The golf team is looking to avenge their seventh straight league championship with three returning players and one new player. Their experience will show as the season gets going. Our golfers aim to get more comfortable with the course before their final match right before Spring Break!
