SPORTSMANSHIP

There has been an increase in inappropriate fan behavior at our home basketball games.  Yelling at officials, screaming at coaches, and making demeaning, derogatory comments about and towards student-athletes is simply unacceptable.  The job of a fan is to SUPPORT the student-athletes, and to set a good example for our kids!  If someone feels that they can do a better job officiating, than please contact the athletic department for the necessary paperwork and we will get you registered.  We are always looking for more officials.

If your intent when coming to our contests is to yell, scream, and criticize, then we ask that you consider not attending our events.  We want only a positive environment for our students and our fans.

WRESTLING NEWS!

Congrats to our SECTIONAL QUALIFIERS: Jacob Green ( 106 ); Jadin Atha ( 113 ); Jimmy Barlow ( 126 ); James Gjefle ( 138 ); Ben DeWitt ( 160 ); Garret Atteln ( 195 ); Dylan DeWitt ( 220 ), Trey Kaiser ( 285 ).  Jadin, James, Ben, Dylan, and Trey are all Regional Champs!
