Junior High Football

  The Junior High football boys capped their season Monday night with a 36-20 win over the visiting Fremont-Mills Knights. The win brought the team record to a respectable 3-1-1. After a week 1 loss, the boys finished the season undefeated and achieved their season long goal of finishing with a winning record. Their success can be

attributed to their relentless effort and hard work in every game, despite often being out-numbered and out-sized. The future looks bright for this group! Great season boys!
