Today, as we stay with a tradition that started in 1966, the ringing of the “Victory Bell,” we celebrate our Volleyball teams. (Click on the image to the left to watch the video.) Last night, both the freshmen and varsity teams took home a MAC win on our home court! Lead by senior setter Kyliegh Emery, our big blockers and hitters of the night were Jaime Henderkott, Sara Weisrock, and Camauri Stokes. Our diggers, Madi Tomlinson and Abbi Tunis, defended their home court in true Falcon style! Way to go, ladies! Our next game is away at Assumption on Tuesday. We really hope to have a huge student section to rally our team! Congratulations, Falcons!!! As the Bell Chimes, please take a moment to bask in the glory of our Victories.
News, Events, and Announcements
If you’d like to join us this year for awesome competition and our fun adventures, join us for our first meeting, on Tuesday, August 30 after school in Room 238.
Seven members of the Combustible Lemons traveled to Nairobi and Nakuru, Kenya to teach robotics and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for two weeks. The team members taught between 700-1000 Kenyan youth, ranging from simple solar panels that run a motor to building and programming NXT LEGO robots. Coach Greg Smith said, “It was exciting to see the Kenyan students learn about STEM, many of them for the first time. We were able to offer a hands-on activity to help them apply what they had learned.” Besides teaching, students experienced the Kenyan culture by visiting several open air markets to purchase gifts, as well as by visiting a national park for a safari.
Seniors Wylie Halferty, Aaron Willie, Garvin Paper, Isaac Harris, and Freshman Zach Stasz demonstrate their skills. Their next meet is Thursday, August 25.
