All boys are invited to our annual WINTER CAMP.  Join our coaches to work on your skills!  November 5th–7th3:30-5:30 p.m.  Then TRY-OUTS will be held the following week, November 13th & 14th.  Juniors/Seniors try-out schedule will be 3:30-5:30 p.m. on both days.  Fresh/Soph try-out schedule will be 5:30-7:30 p.m. on both days.  All basketball activities take place in our gymnasium facilities.

One of our players (Dominick Castiglione) tied a National Record for interceptions returned for touchdowns in a quarter this past Saturday, with 3.  Only 2 players in history have accomplished this feat with the first happening only 2 weeks ago in Oklahoma.  The player in Oklahoma did his over a span of 6+ minutes.  What is unbelievable is that Dominick did his in only 4 plays covering 1:17.  This may be a record that will never be broken!  Vote today for Dom’s record play to be the play of the week on 9 News.  Just click on the following link .

Students:  If you are planning on joining basketball, wrestling or girls swimming this winter, you must pick up the athletic packet in the athletic office.  Athletic check-in is this week October 28th – November 1st and all paperwork must be turned in before you can practice.  There will be a mandatory parent/student athletic meeting on Monday, November 4th at 6:00 p.m. in the Auditorium.
