Panthers in Action

Sports Teams!

Our Varsity Volleyball and Soccer teams had a great time this past weekend at the tournament in Tennessee. The competition was tough, but both teams came in third place! Way to go, Panthers!

Our Cross Country team competed locally this weekend with great results.  The girl’s team finished in second place and the boy’s team finished in fourth. Jackson Vierow came in first place out of the 134 boys competing! It has been an exciting first year for the Cross Country team.
