As the school year drew to a close, our coaches got together and organized an awards ceremony and banquet for all the students who had participated in organized sports in our school. Even though our main focus is academic, it can be said that our athletes work just as hard to hone their skills in their various sports: soccer, football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, and softball. The Athletic Banquet also serves to recognize the excellent work and dedication of our Eagle Cheerleading Squad.
Ms. Jennings, our 7th grade Assistant Principal, reminded everyone that sports are part of UIL and students are required to maintain good grades in order to be able to participate. She is very proud of our athletes because they never forget to focus on their studies even as they practice long hours to compete in sports. Our coaches enjoy this opportunity to recognize in our students their dedication to both academics and sports.
Throughout the year, our students compete against other schools and also participate in special Faculty VS Students basketball and volleyball games. Many of our students participate in more than one sport as well.
After the awards ceremony, our students, their parents, and coaches enjoyed a delicious dinner.
Congratulations to our athletes and their families!
