Unfortunately the team was defeated in the semifinals game, but was one of only seven teams from the Continental league to make it that far in the play-offs. Congratulations lady on having such a wonderful season. A reminder to turn in uniforms today right after school.


The boy’s varsity tennis team will be sending one player to the state tennis tournament this year.  At #1 singles, Erik Johnson survived four grueling matches last Friday at the regional tournament to take 3rd place and earn a berth to the state tournament.  Erik's last match of the day went to three sets against a tough Heritage player.  After being down, 5-2 in the third set, Erik fought back, winning the next 5 games in a row to take the match.  The number 3 doubles team of Brian Craig and Jeff Maxey took 4th place.  Congratulations guys and good luck to Erik at State.
