Play For the Pink

The Varsity Football Team has come a long way since the beginning of the season. They have been getting better at every practice and working even harder in their games. It seems as if all the hard work, sweat, and tears are finally starting to pay off. On Friday,October 19 the boys will take on the Shawnee Heights Thunderbirds at home for both Senior Night and the Pink Out game. Sporting their bright pink socks, the Lions will be spreading awareness about breast cancer, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

This  night will be extremely bittersweet for the football team. In the past years and throughout the season the boys became a family in a sense. It is going to be saddening to see how many of them will be moving onto bigger and better things next year. This will definitely be a game to remember.

Marching For a 1

The Marching Lions earned a 1 rating, which is the best that can be received, over the weekend at Central States in Manhattan, Kansas. The weather at KSU was cold and rainy, but the Lions persevered through as a whole to perform their very best. “Central states was fantastic. It was our best performance, even through the nasty weather,” said junior Heather Ober.¬†

The Marching Lions also put on their 2nd Annual Homecoming Light Show at the end of the Friday night football game. Once again the Lions put on an outstanding performance and had the stands going crazy. “The Light show was natural and fun, seeing that it was in the dark. We were able to be more relaxed and focused on having a good time. It was more for the audience rather than for us,” said junior Keiara Morris. The band continues to work hard and get better every day to bring the school spirit alive.
