All Things Bally

Congratulations to our many teams who competed this weekend. Our academic team placed 2nd at District Governor's Cup. They move on to Regionals in 2 weeks. Our forensics team did GREAT at the Woodland Gray Swing Tournament at Gray Middle, and our Archery Team placed 1st at the Gray Tournament this weeekend.
Next weekend our MathCounts team competes at the school level and we wind down our regular basketball season this week but gear up for the district tournament at the beginning of February. Our archery tournament is the final weekend of the month. Volunteers are needed and appreciated. Contact email@example.com if you can assist.
