Congratulations to the Senior Girls Volleyball Team who captured a Tier II Gold Medal in the Senior High Female ‘B’ division.  The girls played fantastic and worked hard to beat Gonzaga in straight sets Saturday evening.

The Senior Boys and the Junior Girls made tier I after Friday night’s games but failed to advance to the semi finals.  The Junior boys (7 & Under) finished 3rd in their division.  all teams played great and represented the school well!

Thank you to Mr. Abbott, Ms. Parrott, Ms. Hansford, Mrs. Smith, and Mr. Cook for your efforts!  The teams would never travel without you!
