Congratulations to Turner's 3rd Grade Tackle Team!
Congratulations to Turner’s 3rd Grade Tackle Team. The team was comprised of Turner students, several from Oak Grove Elementary. They had a tremendous and successful season winning the KC Sunflower Association League Championship as well as being Regular Season Champions in the challenging and competitive The Rebirth League in Kansas City, MO. They dominated competition all season shutting out club teams in every victory. This group has now won three league championships in a row dating back to 1st Grade Flag. The future of Turner Football looks very bright!
