They Went Deep.....

The five Tigers went deep at the National Prep Tournament, but not deep enough.  It was a sad end to the 2013-2014 Wrestling season, but these boys fought hard!  The competition was amazing at the tournament this year and our Tigers should be smiling in this picture!  Well, Cole is smiling!  He knows they should be proud.  Congratulations to all the JV and Varsity wrestlers and especially to the Prep League Coach of the Year, Coach Budlong!  We are all very proud of you guys!
(I'll be posting pictures later!)

VISAA States, no word yet...

Good Morning!  It's beautiful, but this snow is making it difficult for us fans to know what is happening with States!  There is a possibility the dates may switch from Friday-Saturday to Saturday-Sunday.  I'll let you know! 
From what I understand the beach area will not be as bad as the rest of the state.  So, that's hopeful.
Stay safe and warm!  Tori Walker
