Vincent King and Kamari Lewis-Stallworth each had interceptions last week as the defense posted their 4th shut-out of the season. Boys' Tennis

Cross Country The harriers ran well at the Douglas County Invite last weekend. The boys finished 3rd and the girls finished 9th. Impressively, 21 of the 32 runners on Saturday ran their best time of the year. Poms The poms continue to grow and put on a great show at halftime of the homecoming football game. They are working toward the league competition which will be hosted at Smoky Hill in November. Boys' Soccer  The soccer team has had some bad luck versus some very good teams this year.
