Congratulations to the JV & Varsity volleyball teams on their double wins over Delphos Jefferson in our first NWC conference match last night.

On Monday, the soccer team lost a tough one to Allen East 5-4.
Players of the game were Karsyn Garmatter for her defensive shielding and team play and Ella Dotson for her offensive efforts and never give up attitude.

Last night the soccer team beat Ft Jennings 3-1.
Players of the game were Ruth Myers for her outstanding ball control, offensive patience, and point scored for the team and Karsyn Garmatter for her aggressiveness, defensive body position, and winning almost all 50/50 balls. Well done girls! Keep up the hard work!

Last night the boys' cross country team competed at the Lancer Grandstand invitational at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds. In the quick 2 mile race several boys had outstanding performances.
Luke Ellerbrock made a big push at the end but ran out of real estate and finished 2nd overall in the race. Bean Pitts was burning up the track like a thoroughbred and finished 4th overall. Levi Bryan and Logan Mershman also posted top 10 finishes, smiling the entire time. Braylon Best and Caiden Squillante also turned in quick times on the evening. The boys will be back in action Saturday at Ottawa.

Any student in grades 9-12 interested in studying Pharmacy after high school should stop in the guidance office to get more details about the University of Findlay's "V.I.P.2” Experience. The University of Findlay will introduce select high-achieving students to the expanding role of pharmacists in clinical, retail and health-systems settings. Students will get a real taste of pharmacy practice as they spend time in the lab compounding chemicals, learning about physical assessment and filling prescriptions under the supervision of our College of Pharmacy faculty and teaching assistants. They will get an overview of the profession of pharmacy, Findlay’s pharmacy program, and will come home with souvenirs from their experience! If interested, please stop in the guidance office by this Friday, September 15th to talk to Mrs. Losh about this opportunity.

Reminder that Picture Day is tomorrow. Seniors are welcome to come in your dress clothes at 7:30 for pictures so you have time to change before school starts.
