SPORTS REPORT:  

7th and 8th graders who want to participate on the gymnastics team should attend the high school winter sports information meeting at 6 PM on Tuesday, October 8th at the STMA High School Performing Arts Center.

The 8th grade A football team beat Buffalo 6 - 0 in the Mud Bowl Tuesday.  The offensive and defensive lines continue to set the tone. Bryce H. scored a touchdown to complete a drive featuring runs by him, Reece E., and Riley H.  Tevin V. made a touchdown saving tackle at the 15 yard line and then the defense led by Devon D. and Andrew V. shut Buffalo down on 4 straight downs to end the game.

The girls dominated the 'border battle' against West last night in 5/6 games.   Martina W. caught their front row off guard with controlled short serves that were unreturnable.  Kenna L. showed off her tips at the net and digs out of the net to score some points. Ava M. steadied plays with controlled passes from the back row.    Addy M. and Ava M. had 100% at the serving line - each with 11 serves, followed by Maddy P. with 9/9 serves.  

The girls 7A volleyball team beat West 4 sets to 2. All players were strong behind the service line to help take home the win. Leah S. and Amanda O. provided great assists for Kendra B., Abby H., and Molly J. to gain some kills! Faith J. played a mean back row, digging up multiple hits. Way to go Lady Knights!
