The girls travel to Jefferson High School September 3. Game times are 5:30, 6:30, 7:30
The Panthers hosted #1 ranked Waco La Vega Friday, and fell short to the Pirates 28-14. The Panthers fought hard in the first half, particularly the MV defense, which held the Pirates to 7 points in the half. The offense struggled early, but began to gain momentum before halftime. After half, La Vega was able to tally 14 more points before the Panthers got on the scoreboard to make it 21-7 on a James Gipson reception from Charlie Marsh. The Panthers allowed another touchdown, but answered again late in the game when Marsh found Kaiden Hernandez in the endzone for the score. Garrison Garza converted both point after attempts for the 28-14 final. The Panthers travel to Boerne this Thursday to play the Greyhounds at 7 pm. We’d love to see the Panther nation represented in the stands.
On Thursday, the JV Football team took on East Central High School. The first half was a defensive struggle. Both teams drove the ball and then made mistakes costing them. Robert Gilmore pulled in an interception to stop one Hornet drive, and Adam Chavez and Damien Loy recovered fumbles on punts to give the offense the ball back. As time was running down, the defense blocked an East Central punt. The offense moved the ball, then with 21 seconds left they attempted a field goal. There was a bad snap, so the Panthers covered the ball and lined up again. With five seconds remaining in the half, Bobby Peterson connected on a 38 yard field goal to take the lead 3-0.
In the second half the Panthers just couldn't sustain drives. The Hornets pressed on and completed the victory over Medina Valley.
Both Freshman teams traveled to East Central to take on the Hornets on Thursday. The Orange team fought hard but couldn't overcome the quick start by the Hornets and lost 34-0. The second game of the night was a defensive battle. The black team held them to one score in the first half, with a big interception by Karson Solis. In the end the black team couldn't pull out with a win and fell to the Hornets 14-0.
Class of 2020-
Even though your senior year is just starting, in the blink
of an eye graduation will be here!!! Is your resume ready? Do you know
what colleges you want to apply to?? Get a jump start on your “to-dos” to
get into the college of your choice! Application windows opened to most
Texas college/universities on July 1st . Do you have an Apply Texas
Account? If you are currently in any dual credit class, you do. Make sure
you know your log-in and password and go ahead and get started on that
application. The wonderful thing about Apply Texas is that you can
create/complete one application and then copy it to another “new”
application for another college so you are not filling out the same
application over and over! As always come by the Counseling Center if you
have any questions.
Class of 2021-

preparing for tests can be very beneficial!! Scoring well on one or both can
qualify you for various things such as dual credit classes and/or
Class of 2022-
One down three to go!!! Now is the time to start thinking
about rank and GPA!! Begin thinking about what college or career path
you would like to pursue and share that with your counselor!!! Don’t wait
until junior or senior year to start doing this, as it may be too late to start
making repairs. Make sure you understand the courses/programs that will
be offered to you and the routes you must take to get into those courses-
such as prerequisites and minimum qualifying scores!!
Class of 2023-
Welcome to the BEST high school in Texas!!!! Freshman
year is such an exciting time! As you begin to settle in and become
accustomed to high school life start exploring different extracurricular
activities and clubs you can become involved in. With the future in mind
start a high school resume. As you begin to become active in all of the
different activities the high school has to offer, document it within that
resume. This will help tremendously when the time comes to start
