The 7th grade A football team lost to Cambridge last night 14 – 0. The Knights were able to move the ball effectively all night, but small mistakes stopped many drives. Rainer M., Jaxon C. and Karson R. led the Knights running the football highlighted by Karson’s 32 yard run, dragging Cambridge players with him for a majority of that run.

The 8th grade football B team beat Cambridge 26-16 on Thursday September 14th.  Caden N. accounted for all four TD’s.  He threw for two scores and ran for two others. The guys played strong second half defense and took control of the game late.  Carter B. played a solid game on the line along with Riley N.  Tye K. and Gavin S. hauled in the scoring passes for the Knights. The 8th grade football A team beat Cambridge 14-12.  The offensive line led the way as eight different runners ran the ball.  Jake S. and Avery B. each scored touchdowns and Drew E. got the extra points that made the difference.  Evan F. intercepted a pass in the closing seconds at the 5 yard line preventing Cambridge from scoring and sealing the win.

Congratulations to the girls’ tennis team.  We had a great effort against Becker last night.  Each team worked hard.  An extra shout out to Emily A., Sydney A., Abby J., Jenna K., Kendall P., Kyra P., Lauren R., Olivia R., Hailey R. and Julia W. 

Have a great day.
