To encourage participation there is a competition nationally and statewide. To participate, students must tweet or snap-chat a picture or a short video indicating their decision.

Athletics / Recognitions


Softball: Saturday, the Varsity softball team finished runner-up in the Larry Baird Softball Classic by defeating LCC 16 to1 and falling to Charlotte 5 to 0.  In game one, Nikki Willard was outstanding on the mound, fanning 10 batters on only 3 hits.  Although it was a scoreless game through 4 innings, the panther defense struggled while the bats went cold following 6 hits early on.  In game two, the panthers erupted for 16 runs on 16 hits led by Kilee “Sticks” Way-Walton who went 3 for 4 with a homerun and 4 RBIs.  Ashleigh Armstrong, Nicole Villarreal, and Paige Maltby also contributed hits and RBIs to the panther effort.  The panthers next travel to Lakewood tomorrow for a showdown with the 15 and 1 vikings.


Sophia Rios competed at the Level 9 Eastern National Gymnastics Championships this past weekend in Lansing.  Congratulations on taking first place in the All-Around for the Senior 1 age division.  In addition, Sophia tied for first place on the Balance Beam event.  Way to go, Sophia.  Good luck to Chloe Bellmore and Tristan Brown as they compete at the Level 10 National Gymnastics Championships in Indianapolis this weekend.
