Sports: The 7th grade football team completed their season on the road last evening at Tecumseh. We won with the final score being 24 - 6. Our season ended with a 3 win - 3 loss record. The three games we lost, we lost by a total of 8 points. Our record by far does not represent the amount of progress these players made over the past 3 months.

Thanks for all your support and help throughout this past season.   Coach Jon Fowler
