Balloon Volleyball

Who knew a balloon could take such a beating!  Each of the classes competed against each other with balloons and the objective was to keep 2 of them up in the air without touching them twice in a row within a square.  First place went to the 8th grade and second place to 3rd grade.  As you can imagine, that was a surprising, but a pleasant turn of events for the 3rd graders!  Everyone had a great time.

Soccer Season

IMG_3539_1493157915231We’ve had an excellent soccer season this year and have been led by some of the best players we’ve had.  They’ve surpassed expectations and shined this year.  They’ve been a joy and a treat to watch whether it was Sam Dean stopping the ball kicked at an impossible angle to the goal, Gabby Durham not being intimidated playing her first year against a well-seasoned player or Michael Marks consistently going head-to-head against any of his opponents.  We’ve watched Logan McMasters show great leadership in both skill and abilities and seen the great footwork and strength shown by Alex Murray as he “streaks” across the field to help his team in a time of need.  We will miss you all next year, but know you have left a great legacy in surpassing expectations.
Today is their last game as we play Lawrenceburg’s SHS in L’burg @ 6PM.

Sports’ Picnic

20160515_174427-1Yesterday, our athletes and their families met at St. Joe’s City Park for the Sports’ Picnic.  We had a cookout with hotdogs, hamburgers, watermelon and many more sweets!  It wasn’t quite warm enough for the creek, but a few brave ones (or maybe not so smart ones!) jumped in.  Coaches Susan and Jeff Methvin gave out the awards and acknowledged how well each one did.  We had several students who were consistently in the top 20 at the Cross Country meets.  And, our soccer team was undefeated with only 3 goals scored against them!  Great Job, Athletes!!!  We want to especially congratulate our 8th graders as they led us in a great year and we will miss them.  They are Karissa Coggin, Mary White, John-Paul Littrell, Jude Thomas, Kane West, and Sam Methvin.  Not pictured-Grace Forsythe.

Soccer Season

IMG_9259We are gearing up for an awesome soccer season!  We will begin our season on Tuesday, March 1st, playing at Zion Christian Academy at 4:30 P.M.  Last Friday, we played a local scrimmage game in preparation of the season and wore our Pray for Emily shirts to support and honor Emily Marks.  It was a great game with lots of competitiveness! This year, SHS Patriots is ALIVE & KICKING!!!
