Softball Goes 3-0 In Pre-Season Scrimmages

The softball program kicked off the season with a set of three scrimmages on Friday night. The Lady Vikings had dominant performances to go 3-0 in the four team jamboree. The softball program looks to build on their State Sectional appearance from a year ago with a very talented cast of players returning and a great group of newcomers. This season looks to be one of the most successful in program history. You will not want to miss the action this fall!

Record Student Section Attends Football Jamboree

The first Howell events of the school year took place on Friday night with the Vikings hosting both softball and football jamborees. The Hawaiin themed student section saw the football program go 2-1 on the evening with wins over McCluer North and Ladue. The Vikings fell just a touchdown short to CBC. With one of the largest crowds to see a jamboree, the season looks to be an exciting one at The H! We hope to see all Viking fans come out this Friday as we take on Mehlville at 7:00 p.m. at home. This Friday's theme is "Blue Out." We hope to see all Viking fans in their Howell blue!

Softball Program Gives Back

The Howell Softball seniors spent their Sunday volunteering their time at Luke 923 Ministry recently. The Luke 923 Ministry aims to help the homeless and underserved in the St. Charles area. The outreach of these young ladies is just another example of the efforts of Howell programs to support our community and to provide learning opportunities outside of the activities, clubs and sports for those that participate.
