Coach Bob Heard recognized our Girls' Softball team for an amazing season that saw them make it to the second round of playoffs. Ashlyn Bustamante and Mackenzie Brown were selected for the Evergreen All-League Women's Softball Team while Alexis Goodson and Julieanna Fieldson were selected to the Evergreen Honorable Mention Softball Team. Coach Heard also thanked Adam Heard and Bridgett Bustamante for being such great assistant coaches. Congratulations to all of our softball players for an awesome season!

Coach Larry Yocum was also very proud of the season the Boys' Baseball team had this year that also saw them advance to the playoffs for the first time since 2002! Trevor Barr, Tristin Clark, and Garrett Miille were selected for the Evergreen All-League Men's Baseball Team while Kolby Elzea and Nick Hampton were selected to the Evergreen Honorable Mention Baseball Team. Seniors Tristin Clark and Kolby Elzea were team captains and each were 4-year starters. Coach Yocum also recognized the effort of Ken Roby, Fritz Barr, Ryan Neer, Paul Elliot, and Tom Rodgers for their efforts as assistant coaches and Kooper Clark for being "Team Manager". All of this contributed to the great season.

GHS had a fantastic sports year. Each of our teams made it to playoffs, which is very unusual. Congratulations to all of our athletes and coaches for a successful year in sports.

Dog Days

Our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade band students performed last week at our annual Dog Days Concert. They did a wonderful job under the direction of Mr. Norman. Click on the links to watch their performances.

Senior Trip

Our seniors have been on their senior trip this past weekend. They ventured down to southern California where they went to the beach, a Dodgers game, and Disneyland. What a memorable trip it was for them!

IVES Triathlon

Friday was our annual triathlon at IVES. Students moved through stations--run/walk, bicycling, and an obstacle course. This fundraiser sponsored by our parents' club helps raise money for field trips, special activities, and the project to upgrade our playground. Thank you to all who volunteered for this fun event for our IVES students.
