Meet "The Laundry Squad"
From the beginning of Basketball Season in late October until 
mid February the "Laundry Squad" (Sadarius Dent & Auterro High), 
as they are known by the Boys' Basketball team, washed, dried, 
and folded practice jerseys and uniforms. 
These guys provided an awesome service that took a big load off 
of Coach Nix, the head basketball coach, allowing him  time to focus 
on other important items during the season for the basketball program.
Thanks also to Mr. Jenkins,  the "Laundry Squad Coordinator" 
as he assisted the "Laundry Squad". 
Our coaches and players appreciate the job they do.
