As we head into Quarter to and toward the winter season for sports and activities, it’s time to showcase the accomplishments of our many athletes and actors who have worked so hard this fall!
The future looks bright for the baseball team as we had a very young team this year and made great progress throughout the season. One indication of the improvement the team made was that towards the end of the season we played the eventual championship team and lost by only one run.
