The 7th Grade Girls Single A Volleyball team defeated the Kennedy Eagles last night in the second round of the conference tournament. It was by far not our best match of the season; however, the Patriots kept fighting for a victory! We are happy to have this match behind us and all the nerves that went with it! We are going to work hard at practice, focus and prepare for the semi-final game, which will be held at Crone next Wednesday October 16th. Believe in yourself and your teammates and you will be successful!
The 7th grade double A volleyball team played one of their best games of the season, last night when they defeated Crone in two sets. The Patriots brought their DOUBLE A game and beat the panthers 25 to 7 and 25 to 15. The Patriots played smart and aggressive at the net, and would not give up on broken plays. Next up are the semi-finales next week at Lincoln, versus Scullen. Great game Double A.
The 8AA volleyball team played a tough Gregory team last night. The Patriots had a hard time getting things going, as they found themselves down early in game three of the match. Luckily, the girls hit the reset button and were able to regroup for the win. Good luck in the final four 8AA.
Last night our 8A volleyball team beat Washington to advance to the semifinals in the conference tournament. In game one, our Patriots came out ready and never looked back, defeating the wildcats 25-9. The second set, we got ourselves in a little bit of trouble, but were able to pull it together to pull out the win. We are next in action against Gregory, on Wednesday. Nice job ladies!

Congratulations on completing your last regular season meet, Patriots Cross Country Team! Coaches Curtis, Kahl and Schweinberg are so proud of all of the hard work you have put in thus far in the season! Our 7th grade girls came out victorious. The 7th grade boys also ran hard against Kennedy and Still, but placed second. Eighth grade girls followed, but could not beat the Eagles. It was a very close race. Last, but certainly not least, our eighth grade boys ran hard. Next stop, conference! Way to go Patriots.
Well, the 7th grade Flag Football team’s season came to an end yesterday with a loss to Kennedy. What we lacked in wins on the scoreboard, we more than made up for with wins in personal gains: friendships, growth as athletes, and growth as people working together. Coaches Rester, Harper, and Smid are proud and honored to have had the opportunity to be associated with this year’s team.
Last night the 8th grade flag football team traveled to Lincoln in a semifinal match up. The Patriots played one of their best games of the year but unfortunately were defeated 12 to 0. Overall, the Patriots had a great season and made many improvements. Coach Mike, Coach Bil, and Coach O’Malley are very proud of all the athletes. Great season 8th grade A-team.
