Happy Valentine’s Day.  I don’t think it was until I became a parent that I realized how much candy is involved in every holiday.  I think we are still trying to finish off all of the pastel M&M’s from last Easter.

The Climbing Teams both took 2nd in their regional competitions this last weekend and will compete in the State event.  Good luck, Climbers!

It was an exciting last couple of weeks for the boys and girls high school basketball teams.  Both teams faced some tough competition but have come out of it stronger.  The girls are now sitting at 2nd in the league and the boys are in a logjam for the 4th through 7th places.  Both teams only have two games left with Stargate tonight at Bishop Machebeuf next week. Let’s finish strong, Jags!

The girls junior high basketball team had a great finish to their regular season!  The B team went undefeated finishing at 10-0 and the A team finished at a strong 8-2.  Both teams should play in the league tournament coming up this week. Great job!

Save the Date:

Our player/parent meeting for junior high baseball will be on February 26th at 4:00 PM in room 252.  The season starts on March 16th so plan on attending to get important information about registration and our season schedule.  If you are unable to attend, please contact Coach Kirkley.

Spring Camps:

Lacrosse and Girls Soccer will be holding their preseason camps the week of February 24th.  These are for any high school players interested in going out for either sport this spring. Please contact Coach Hughes or Coach Sutton for more information. 

We are looking at possibly adding another girls sport as early as next year but we would like your input.  If you are a female athlete, or the parent of a female athlete, please take a moment to fill out this quick interest survey.  Thank you to those who have already responded.
