  • 8th Grade Football traveled to Princeton Tuesday to take on the Tigers. An all-around team effort resulted in 20-0 win for the Knights B-team. Colby C. had a strong day passing with two long touchdown passes to Brady W. Colby also converted two 2-point conversions on QB keepers. Brady finished with well over 100 yards receiving.  Defense was led by Cameron E. with a pick-6 while Brett B. and Lane F. combined for 2 sacks. 

  • The Knights Football A team took the early lead on a 60 yard punt return by Carter Winfield for a touchdown. Jacob K. added the 2-point conversion on a hard-fought run. The score was 8-8 at the half, but the Knights struggled to control the ball in the second half, falling by a final score of 30-8.

  • The 7th grade A volleyball team went 4 and 2 yesterday against Monticello.  Everyone on the team had great contributions. Kennedy M. had some great leadership and plays for the team and Morgan B. had some much-improved serving at key points in the match.

  • 8th Grade A volleyball remains undefeated as they took on Monticello last night, in what some would maybe call "the games of the century." Not all, but one might. The Knights were on fire! with 14 kills by Alexa, Arden, Briana, Julia, Addie, Lexi, Esme, Presley, and one game-winning kill by GIANNA. Amazing back row attacks by Lexi and Julia.  Alexa, Briana, Gianna, Kaidyn, and Greta were putting the magic defense in their place with their untouchable serves. Our setters Kaidyn, and Saddie had some great placed tips over the Monti blockers. But none of the blocks in the game could compare to our own Julia who shut down TWO HITS by Monticello with her strong blocks! Great job ladies!!

  • The cross country teams were at Buffalo last night. The boys took 4th place out of 10 teams. Out of 126 runners Braylen M. finished 18th, Aiden E. finished 21st, and Riley A. finished  23rd. Grady R. and Jackson P. finished next for the team in 30th and 31st place respectively. Brady J. took 1 minute per mile off his time from our last meet! 

  •  The girls team took 2nd place. Reese C. finished 5th overall. Noelle M. was a big difference maker. Her 28th place finish was the tied breaker to push the team to 2nd place!  Julia B. had a personal best as well running 45 seconds faster per mile!

  • Conservation Crew is a student-led extracurricular school program for middle schoolers. Rooted in service learning, students develop leadership skills by designing and implementing conservation projects to impact their schools and communities.  Open to grades 5-8, we will be meeting twice a month after school on Thursdays from 3:10-4:00 to design, create, and implement a project for our school grounds!  We hope to see you!
