Athletic Campaign

The remainder of our Fall student athletes started postseason competition Saturday. Some athletes fished out the season with a solid base to build upon and some athletes were able to extend their season.

  • Football lost a heartbreaker in the Battle of 42, but they have definitely found some positives to build on going into the offseason.

  • Volleyball beat West Jefferson 3-0 in their first tournament game and will play Bishop Ready Thursday at 7:30 pm in the Mount Vernon Nazarene University. The Pirates could move onto the district championship with a win Thursday.
