Any student who does NOT have one of these signed permission forms on file will not be allowed to have his or her picture included in any end of the year celebration videos. This includes the 8th grade Promotion video that is shown in the auditorium the night of the promotion ceremony.

8th Grade Girls’ Softball: Yesterday the girls played a tough 8th grade Bonny Eagle team. Although it was a loss, the girls hit the ball extremely well and made a few great plays on defense. Trinity Rowe had a few great at-bats and Molly Morris made some great defensive plays at second base. Each player contributed to our success yesterday. Today we play 7th grade Bonny Eagle and we are hoping to get a second win at home under our belts!
8th Grade Boys’ Baseball: The 8th grade boys improved to 3-1 with a 4-3 victory over a talented Bonny Eagle team on Thursday. Chris Kullman got the win and Alec Hodgkins recorded the save. Kullman also recorded two hits, scored two runs, and stole two bases. Garren Post drove in 2, and Bronson Damon delivered from the 3 spot with an RBI of his own offensively. Ayden Macwhinnie played stellar defense in center field for the victorious Falcons. Great job boys!
Boys’ Lacrosse: Westbrook earns the team’s first victory by the score of 10-4. Kolbyn Dunphe led the way with 2 goals and 5 assist. Other goal scorers were Isaac White, Jason Shackley, and Julian Foster. Tristian Rost was the denfensive MVP with great hustle and determination.
Girls’ Lacrosse: The girls’ played a challenging first half of last night’s game, but came back with a vengeance in the 2nd half. Even though the final score reflected a loss, the girls only allowed 1 goal in the 2nd half and scored 3 goals. The team showed what happens when you gather yourselves together at the half-time and decide that you are going to leave it all on the field for the remainder of the game. Scoring those 4 goals was Morgan Shibles, Morgan Pednault and Lily Ranco. Our defense was led by Ava Cavanaugh and our goalie Sophie Schildroth who had 8 saves! Nice job ladies!
