Jr. High Volleyball
The junior high volleyball team began regular season practices today. Many of the girls were able to attend the team camp this week and we are excited to begin a new season! The team will open with their first matches of the season on Thursday, August 29th, as we travel to Tabor to take on the Fremont-Mills team. Game time is 3:45. We hope to see you there!
Fall Sports Picnic
Thank you to all of the football players, volleyball players and cheerleaders and their parents for attending the Fall Sports picnic that was held on August 9th. A special “Thank You” to the Tibben family for hosting the large gathering! We had a wonderful turn out and a delicious meal!
The Stanton Viqueen Softball team ended their season with a record of 12-11. We had 4 Essex players (2 sophomores & 2 8th graders) join our team this year and we so enjoyed having them be a part of our team along with Assistant Coach Truly Mothershead.
The team really improved on several things this year. We have a young team and with a few injuries this year, some of those younger players had to step into important rolls on the team. If you ask them,
they would say they were nervous but we coaches really could not tell. Due to the injuries we also had to moved some of our
upperclassmen around to different positions and they never complained, they just did what needed to be done.
Just a couple highlights from our season were: getting 2nd place at the Shenandoah tournament (we missed 1st place by 1 run) and we beat state ranked Murray 5-2.
