Pictured above: The open green space in front of the Performing Arts Center at TCHS has been surveyed and marked in preparation for the addition of new multi-purpose athletic fields.
Our school reconfiguration will be in place for the next school year which begins Aug. 13, 2018. One of the big areas we are getting lots of questions about is athletics. We do have a plan ready, but it is a plan. While we feel sure what we have in place will work, we do have to be flexible during the transition. Here's how we plan to divide the teams:
Football: In 2018, one sixth grade team, one seventh grade, one eighth grade. Each team will be made up of students from Eighth Street Middle School and Northeast Middle School. In 2019, we HOPE to have two sixth grade teams, two seventh grade teams and two eight grade teams (one from each grade at both ESMS and Northeast). The high school will have ninth grade, JV and varsity teams.
Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball, Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer, Softball and Baseball: One sixth/seventh grade team at ESMS, one sixth/seventh grade team at Northeast, one eighth grade team at ESMS and one eighth grade team at Northeast. TCHS will have ninth grade, JV and varsity teams.
Wrestling: In 2018, one middle school team and one varsity team. In 2019, we hope to add a second middle school team so that both ESMS and Northeast will each have one.
Girls Track and Boys Track: one middle school team at ESMS and one at Northeast, one at TCHS.
Girls Volleyball: one middle school team at ESMS and one at Northeast; JV and varsity at TCHS.
Girls Gymnastics, Girls Tennis, Boys Tennis, Girls Cross Country, Boys Cross Country, Girls Swimming, Boys Swimming, Girls Golf and Boys Golf: one middle school team and one high school team.
Air Rifle, Fishing and Archery: These co-ed sports will each have one team at the high school.
Cheerleading: There will be one middle school competition team and one high school competition team. Sideline cheer is still being discussed.
