FALL SPORTS UPDATE

Interim Football Coach Tim Price during an early season practice.

We were off to a rough start with changes in the Football Coaching staff but we were able to stabilize the program and get a good number of kids out. We had both a Varsity and JV2/Frosh team. The varsity team had a tough season but the kids competed hard in every way coming away with a big homecoming win against Wilson. We hired an interim coach for the fall – Tim Price who did a great job with the program. We will be opening the position and interviewing for the 2018 season.

Girls Volleyball, Girls Soccer and Boys Soccer were all very competitive this season with young teams. They are continuing to get better and we have had good turnout for all 3 programs.

Cross Country had some growth and success this season culminating with qualifying 2 runners (Lammi Kalil and Abdi Hussein) for the State Tournament. Lammi took a podium position with an 8th place finish at State.
