Today’s Bullying Prevention Week quote is from Charles Darwin, “A man’s friendships are one of the best measures of his worth.”



Today’s big shout out goes to the Lady Lions Softball Team for winning both playoff games last night against Bainbridge. The Lions won the first game 11-0 and won the second game 12-1. The ladies did a great job swinging the bats in both games. Leigha Adams, Izzy Ripatti and Emma Shoemaker all hit home runs! Karly Fuller and Lexi Warren both got a win in the circle for the Lions. Both wins secured our ladies a spot in the Elite 8 in Columbus next week. Great job ladies.
