For any student wishing to participate in SHS Volleyball next Fall - there will be an informational meeting for players/parents on Monday May 1 at 7pm in the SHS Commons.

The baseball team took one on the chin last night from their Washington Street rivals by a 7-nothing score, but it was not for lack of effort or performance. The Cyclones simply dominated by tossing a 2 hitter at the good guys who did several things well. Austin Troemper, Jacks Hyde, Ben Rempfer, and Will Reiser all gave great efforts on the mound, but the Cycs’ offense was simply too much for SHS to overcome. Hyde and Reiser had the only Solon hits in an otherwise solid performance by the Senators. A rematch is set for today at 4:15 at Lanphier Park. The ball team would like to thank the student section who came out to enthusiastically add much fun to game one.

“Atención Spanish Club! We will be watching the movie ‘Zootopia’ in Spanish after school on Thursday, April 27th in room 260. All members are welcome. There will also be plenty of food, so come with an appetite.  Hope to see you there!”
