COACH MANDI WEBSTER EARNS 100TH CAREER WIN!!!!!

In an instant the clock hit zero and a loud ring echoed through the gym. The scoreboard glowed with the 52-34 final as the Coyotes defeated the Washington Rams Tuesday night. But it was an announcement by Bob Laliberte over the P.A. system that caused girls head coach Mandi Webster’s face to light up nearly as bright as the scoreboard.

COUNSELORS CORNER


Did you know? Combs High School has several programs for students who love to make music. Mr. Mixdorf teaches Jazz Band, Marching Band, and Band classes in levels 1-4. If band isn't your thing, then Orchestra is another great option, with levels 1-4 taught by Mr. Pennington. There are several benefits to participating in one of these classes. Students get the experience of performing in concerts, competing in festivals, the chance to increase their musical ability, and playing an instrument is scientifically proven to increase math and science scores. And, the friendships that come from working together are an added bonus! See your counselor or one of the music teachers for more information.
