8th Grade Volleyball

On Tuesday, the 8th grade Volleyball team battled hard against the Eastern Comets. The results was not what we wanted, but it safe to say this gourd will be exciting to watch this season. Next match is home against Alexandria on Tuesday.

Middle School Cross Country

Tipton Middle School Cross Country started their season on Thursday against Frankfort. It was a hot, sunny day; but the runners from both teams pushed through and ran a great race! The Lady Blue Devil defeated Frankfort 28-29; while the boys fell 45-16. Looking forward to watching new PRs as this team grows and develops!

Cora Rodibaugh finished first in the girls race with a time of 13 min. 29 seconds; while Jaxsen Muncie was the top boy finisher in 5th place, with a time of 14 minutes 1 second.

Middle School Blue Crew

Students should up, and showed out, for our Lady Devils! The gym was filled with Tipton Pride, as students rallied behind the Blue Devils! We want to keep this going, but it only works with student attendance. Send your students to support the Blue Devils!


The athletic department is looking to spotlight social media posts about our student-athletes. Be sure to add #TiptonPride and check-in at Tipton Middle School when you attend an event.

Post your athletes, and share their success! Thank you for your help!
