Both 7th grade A and B volleyball teams won against Buffalo last night.  Each team went 5 and 1.  The B team was able to pull off a win with some quick hustling on the court by all members of the team.  After a slow start they came back to win the rest of the games.  All players were able to move their feet and serve the ball.  The A team has been working very hard to receive the ball and they were able to work together for the win.  All members of each team contributed to the wins. 

The girls’ soccer team traveled to Monticello last night.  The B team played first and won 2-0.  Scoring for the B team were Emily Z. and Zaya E.  The B team had a lot of great hustle and determination throughout the game.  The A team played the second game of the night and tied 2-2.  Scoring for the A team were Jadyn W. and Sydney P.  The A team had great saves from Emily B. who played her first full game as goalkeeper. The A team also had great defense and many crucial clearances from the back line. 

The 7th grade A football team beat Monticello 38-0.  Conner L. took the opening kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown.  The offensive line play by the Knights was the difference.  Shawn S., Connor D., Dan G., Logan T., Josh S., Riley R., and Jacob R. opened up big holes for Tyrone T. who scored two touchdowns.  Conner L. scored later in the game along with quarterback Alex S.

Congrats to the to the 8th grade football teams last night.The B team notched their first victory of the season defeating Monti 8-6.  The Knights put together an impressive drive in the 4th quarter using runs from Ian S. to score!  Ian scored the TD and the extra point.The A team battled their way to an 8-0 victory over a very physical Monticello team.  Kemry S. scored the lone touchdown for the Knights, trucking 3 Monticello defenders on his way to the end zone.  Jarrett B. added the extra point.Johnny T. added an interception on defense.  JP J. had many crucial tackles on defense.
