Marksmen Minute

A Look Ahead to the Week

Welcome to the Marksmen Minute

This is the first release of the Marksmen Minute, a weekly email that will be designed to fill you in on school information. It's not a one-stop shop for everything you need to know; but it's pretty close. We'll have schedules, lunch menus, featured stories, and games. Be sure to read it through each week!!

Marksmen Have Top Scores in SW Indiana!

Congrats to the 8th and 9th grade classes for posting the top ISTEP+ scores in Southwest Indiana this past Spring. Our scores were the 28th best in the state (there are about 480 schools). For more information, CLICK HERE.

Fall Sports Come to an End

This weekend, the fall sports season concluded for the Marksmen. On Friday, the football team lost a heartbreaking game to 6th ranked Southridge 28-27. The team ended the season with a record of 6-4. Only two teams in the past 20 seasons have won more games!!

On Saturday, the cross country seasons wrapped up as they finished at the Semi-State meet at Brown County High School. All of the runners concluded a great season for the Marksmen as they captured the PAC and Sectional crowns.

And Saturday night, the girls volleyball team lost in the Sectional Finals to Mater Dei. Congrats to the Lady Marksmen on a great season.

Weekly Stuff (mostly useless, but entertaining)

Factoid of the Week

Cotton candy was invented in 1897 by William Morrison. That's not special. What's interesting is that he was a dentist and he named the creation 'Fairy Floss,' a name that stuck around for 25 years before the nickname 'cotton candy' was coined.
