Coach Keenan Johnson would like to schedule a Middle School basketball meeting in the gym with the rising 7th and 8th grade boys for May 19th at 11:15am.
Last Tuesday, the Middle School Baseball team battled back against EDS and tied them 5 to 5 as the 6 inning game was completed. Levi Murphey, Ryan Janovic, and Ben Baker had our only 3 hits, with Ben getting a double and all three of them scoring a run. Rod Anderson and Eric Robinson also scored runs, with Eric doing this "single-handedly". After a swinging third strike and the ball getting past the catcher, Eric beat the throw to first. He then stole second....and third, and daringly scored on a passed ball. What an effort!!
Due to Mead Hall withdrawing from the league, we received a forfeit on the Thursday night game and closed out the season with the record of 7 Wins - 4 Losses and 1 Tie. With this performance, the team earned the #4 Seed position in the AAMSL Tournament. The AAMSL Tournament was scheduled May 3 and May 6. These games have been postponed due to weather. Reschedule dates have not been finalized.
The Varsity Baseball team completed their season and did not qualify for the GISA State Tournament.
The Middle School AAMSL Tournament will be May 5 and May 7.
Last week, the Boys Varsity Soccer team secured another region championship!
