Springfield High will now have to wait another 364 days to bring home the cup. Tomorrow, the Senators will compete in the County Tournament at Lincoln Greens starting at 11:00.

The word for this week is kinetic, If you listen carefully, you will hear it used around you in the classroom. Your teacher may ask you to use it in a sentence. You may also hear it used in the media or at work. Listen up and learn-be word wise!
